So Much Cricket, So Little Fantasy
Pakistan’s selection policy of late is of being so arbitrary that the opposition is startled into losing the match.
Sri Lanka‘s determination to outdo the Pakistani’s this time has trumped their tendency to copy the opposition’s strategy, just go at it harder and hope to be on top at the end. They’ve gone for the performers.
Of course this meant that most of my FCKing Dirty Dozen has been in the pavilion, thinking of other such jargon filled stuff to say when someone sticks a mic in their face.
But now that they’ve lost the series, time for me to pick up the dead rubber bullies in my team.
Kulasekara & Thushara marked this series as their own. They’ve been the best besides Murali. Two not very highly valuated players who’ve delivered much beyond what was expected of them.
Sri Lanka Cricket owes their first home series victory in Tests & ODI’s over Pakistan to these two.
Fernando & Maharoof must be crying in each others arms right now.
