Sanath Jayasuriya:I Really Beg Your Padorn
There was a post titled "A Mismatch" last week or so that doubted the team's talent of putting up a show on the big stage.But,after the fifth ODI between India and Sri Lanka at Canberra,the post seems to have lost some sense I guess.The way the Srilankan batsmen dominated the Indian bowling the other day was superbly awesome.
Especially Sanath Jayasuriya who belted the Indian bowlers-Ishanth & Sreesanth was felt as though he was answering to my hurrying decision.The man smashed 27 off just 13 balls with two boundaries and an equal number of sixes.A typical Jayasuria!With the asking rate being above six,an Indian victory was thought to be on the cards(after Sri lanka's dismal performance against Oz in the first round).
This was only to people like me who assume things a lot at times.Not only Jayasuriya, but others like Tilakeratne Dilshan,Jayawardane and Sangakkara.The batting of Jayasuriya was a perfect start to his team,and that too when he plundered Sreesanth for 23 runs off one over.
If this is the way the Common wealth Bank Series goes,it could never get better than this-coz it would be a series where all the three teams fight it out with full strength. But,one has to look ahead as to how far this goes on.With atleast 9 more matches to go,it looks like there would be a lot of exciting cricketing action ahead.And as far as Jayasuriya is concerned,I seriously beg your padarn for writing something about you in.And never hesitate to give me one tight one for this when you see me..
