    match has been already sold out, by a VVIP politico. SL will score 310 -330. India will chase & win. Sachin will be allowed to score a century.

    Purpose of this Visit is to witness, how the deal works out as the players have to have in mind always that the VVIP is up there!

    But he was not formally invited by India (like the Pakistani Prime Minister)
