I wasn’t in the crowd yesterday. But if I was, that was what I would have been singing along with another 25000 strong crowd yesterday.
From being in a position of complete and utter dominance, Dilshan and Fernando conspired to lose a game which would have made a teeny difference before heading to Pakistan.
A few things were made clear last night.
Dilshan should never captain a real cricket team for Sri Lanka. His slum-dog millionaire tactics of yelling and showing disgust every other ball was ugly to see and uncalled for.
Fernando is a failure to Sri Lankan cricket. When he sorts his no balls he bowls wides. He’s like a charging bull with no target. Has been for a while.
Your time has run out so fuck off and get lost.
That’s what I’d like to say to him but he’s been picked for Pakistan too. If ever there was a case for him being dropped, yesterdays match was it.
Did Dilshan know Sanath had another over left ? Or that he has experience of over a thousand years ?
The answer to both must be No, cuz otherwise how the fuck do you explain the ball being given to Fernando when Santh had bowled 3 overs for 10 in a 2020.
It defeats reason, logic and every other fucking thing.
If he was scared of the Pathans belting the spinners you’d still think experience outranks Fernandos bullshit.
Fuck, he could have stripped off the gloves himself and bowled. Anyone but Fernando.
The end result showed the complete dominance India has had on SL.
One team believes they can win from anywhere, the other just fades into a hole when the shit hits the fan.
God Sehwag took mercy and ran himself out, again. The middle order packed up at 115-7.
India were still dead before Yousuf Pathan launched him self off against Malinga Bandara.
The leggie had bowled quite beautifully on a pitch that was offering spin and run through the Indian middle order and put the brakes on.
From the 9th over to the 15th India scored -34 (9,9,2,4,3,2,5)
In Bandaras last over, Indias 16th he went for 17. The tied turned and India never looked back.
The next 4 overs went 17,12,10,13.
SL only needed one wicket at that stage and the least likely to get one was Fernando.
The Pathans romped home 25 off his last 2.
Indias hold on SL was absolute.
