Sri Lanka – angry sex and threesome’s
When I switched on the TV it was 7-2 yesterday, I was about to write Vandorts death sentence when I realised he wasn’t playing.
Fuck, So Sanga must be out because Mahela and Warnapura were at the crease.
No, apparently some people thought it would be fun to send out Prasanna to open when he can barely bat at no6.
Sangakkara paid for trying to see how big a gap he can have between bat and ball and actually connect with the ball.
Mahela was batting like he meant it, he was needling runs to square leg and calling ‘one’ for everyone to hear. Then he got a pearl from young Sakib and that was that.
Then lunch was taken.
After that, it seemed like we had entered a parallel universe where test cricket was played like a 2020 game.
Dilshan was like a man possessed, after a scratchy start, he decided Bangladesh was the worst team in the world and he was going to have his way with them.
It was like watching someone have angry sex, it was violent and rough, but Ohh so good and satisfying.
Kapugedara then decided he wanted in and Bangladesh, Dilshan and Kapu ended up having a threesome.
A few months ago Bangladesh scored 185 runs in a day against NZ, SL scored that in a session.
Bangladesh – kittens can roar too.
SO they can.
Mortaza was at his best with the new ball, nipping it around at decent pace.
And I have to say, they do like to get excited a bit when they nab a wicket don’t they. Rightfully so.
The hairballs were pulled out and the kittens were roaring at 70 odd for 4.
Unfortunately for them, Bangladesh still dont know how to cut the jugular with the knife pressed agaisnt a teams neck. Somehow they let it slip and fall.
Dropped catches are a sin and you will go to hell for it. Everyone knows that. So 4 chances in the space of a session means Bangladeshi fielders will burn. And burn bad.
When Dilshan was butchering his way to century, Ashraful once again was timid, not that he could ever do anything when a batsmen was in that mood but he dint try anything. Was happy to put the fielders back and wait for a mistake.
In the end it was ANOTHER day where Bangladesh were on top but let it slip.
The story is just too familiar now.
Finding their balls moment.
Tilekaratne Dilshan. 162 in 165 at 98. Enough said.
Play of the day.
Sakib had appealed, thought he had been turned down, and decided to curse Braindead-Bucknor with his hands on head.
With his back turned to Braindead-Bucknor, Sakib dint see the umpire raise his index after what seemed like lifetime.
It was a weird momemnt and Sakib had every right to annoyed and gave Mahela a royal send off for not walking.
It was made even more weird because no conclusive replay were shown on the incident.
Mendis was back today among the wickets and it seems business as usual!! Can’t wait for him to have another crack in the 2nd innings..
Here is a another view point. http://kasunh.wordpress.com/2009/01/03/steve-bucknor/. I also think Bucknor should retire now. That boring Ranjith Fernando too.
Was Vandort injured or dropped and more importantly why is Prasad not playing?
Dilshan played a match changing innings but he only has one mode of playing and most often against better teams he will not succeed.
I think Kapu is a better option at No.6 because he is a longer term prospect and has better technique.
Sanga should have opened the innings because anyway he would be there during the first over.
In the Bang first innings the greatest off spinner of all time,Murali, bowled with only one close catcher when they were 76/4 and 300 behind. In Sydney, the very ordinary Nathan Hauritz bowled with two close catchers. What the hell is going on?
Ricky Ponting is considered an ordinary captain and yet knows how to set a field. Mahela is considered an astute captain (wrongly) and has no clue to set a field.
Previously I’ve defended Trevor Bayliss from criticism for SL’s inconsistent form, but how can he miss something so blindingly obvious and fail to tell his clueless captain. Or is it that the captain is in the Kevin Pietersen mould and doesn’t listen to the coach.
inside> NO idea what Prasad’s playing, surely it had to be an injury otherwise how could the man who saved our asses a few days ago not play.
Re- Dilshan, read my latest post.
With regards to Bayliss, the negative mind frame came about after he came on board, I wonder if the coached NSW (is that right ? ) in a similar vein. Must dig that up.
