Sanath Jayasuriya:A Balanced Cricketer

Well,all of you Jayasuriya fans would be rather disappointed when one saw the batting debacle the Sri Lankan dasher was found going through since the start of the Indian Premier League.But,guys..please relax!!There was something from this great hearted man on the cricket field.The man was found taking the best bowling figures of the tournament until date.The figures of 3/14 off his alloted four overs is still the best by any bowler in the tournament till date.And not to forget the two awesome catches that were taken by this 39 year youth,followed by 10 ball 18 that included 1 six along with two hits to the fence if not something more.

But,the highlight of the day being the stump breaking delivery off Ishanth Sharma to dismiss this left handed opener,not long before he had the initial damage done.And coming to the match,it looks like the Kolkata Knight Riders are second best to the Royal Challengers Bangalore when it comes to making a mess of their cricket,and also do not deserve to be there.A fact that even I recently came to know,the Kolkata Knight Riders have so far had only 1 batsman who has scored a fifty runs of more innings.The only edge that I can see in them is that of Ishanth Sharma and Brendon McCullum.The rest viz Ricky Ponting,Sourav Ganguly etc proving nothing worth.

Some handy contributions from the Mumbai Indians include the Shaun Pollock's 2 wicket first over and Dwayne Bravo's 65* which is the best score by Mumbai Indians till date.Some cheers for Mumbai fans eh?

And even Brendon McCullum is got to leave to fulfill his national commitment.God knows as to what will happen to the fans who have had so much expectations from these Kolkata Knight Riders,unlike Royal Challengers,for whom the fans have already called it off.Great going!!!
