June 9, 2000 - Pakistan b Sri Lanka
Yousuf Yohanna was undoubtedly the star of the tournament, returning an astonishing 60.63% for the tournament, rewarding his captains handsomely. In a close race, Lankan "Kalu", edged captain Moin Khan to be the best performing keeper for the tournament returning 29.63%, while best all rounder went to Abdur Razzaq, who returned 26.60%. The best performing bowler was another surprise, with Indian newcomer Thiru Kumaran walked away returning 27.67%.

It was another disappointing tournament for captains who selected Little Master Tendulkar and Indian captain Ganguly the most expensive players in the dreamcricket.com index. They returned just 19.21% and 21.19% respectively, failing to live up to their expectations.

Another big mover was Bangladesh's Akram Khan returning 24% for the tournament, not disappointing his captains.

Shoiab Malik made the most of his opportunity, increasing his value by 16.67%($100) on fielding. Upul Chandan was next with 14.29%($100) and RahulDravid 12.73%($140).

Congratulations to Pakistan for a well deserved victory!!!

On the bowling side for Pakistan, Abbdur Razaq put dagger in the India batting side with his four wicket run, moving him up by $161.

Other than Ajay Jadeja's performance, the rest of the Indian team failed to live up to their potential giving Pakistan an easy victory. Of the Indian bowlers, Kumble was the most efficient taking 3 wickets moving his value up by $115.

India's performance today dashed any hopes of reaching the finals. On the other hand, tommorrow's match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka looks to be a preview of the finals.

Debutant all rounder Weeraratne had an impressive outing with a gain of 11% to increase his value by $87.

By far the single biggest move of the tournament, Kalu had a busy day with 4 catches and scoring a brisk 33 runs.

For the Indians leading the chase, it was none other the Master Blaster Sachin with a classy 93, but he didn't quite get the support he needed to overhaul the Lankan total. Sachin finished the day with a gain of 10% ($158). Other notable gainers were T Kumaran, who gained 10% ($67) for the day.

On the down side was Robin Singh losing 0.4% ($4) for the day, failing to make any major contributions.

May 31, 2000 - India b Bangladesh
The Bengal Maharajah woke up with a thunderous century to lead India from the front to a win against a spirited Bangladeshi team Though disappointed with his bowling, Ganguly came alive with his bat to increase his value by 16% ($225).

Batting first, Bangladesh batting did well against the Indian bowling attack on a flat pitch to score a commendable 249 for 6 in their allotted 50 overs. Leading the way was Bangladesh Basher, Habibul who scored a solid 57, who was the biggest mover for the day, increasing in value by 18.5%. The burly Akram Khan scored 64, gaining 15%, while the captain Aminul saw his value increase by a respectable 12% ($67)

The Indian bowlers were very ineffective with Kumble, Joshi & Ganguly earning negative dollars for their bowling performances.

Other players making an impact was new comer T Kumaran, who saw his value increase by 14% for his performance with the ball. Sachin, opening the innings with Ganguly, scored a quick fire 36, saw his value increase by 5.4% for the day, which was rather disappointing.
