What a Match!

Pakistan Vs SriLanka

Pakistan lived up to its reputation.

Two Asian tigers fighting and the result was a nail-biting finish. Neither of the teams gave up at any point of time. The Premdasa Stadium at Colombo was thrilled with the match proceedings, off course not the way it ended. But the Pakistani bowling machines snatched victory out of Sri Lankan strong batting lineup. And with this, Sri Lanka lost their first WC match at home.

A tremendous batting effort by Younus khan and Misbah and well done bowling by Captain himself. He scalped four Sri lankan batsmen to be at the top of bowling figures for this edition of World cup. Sohaib Akhtar looks in form and has delivered quite good with 4.2 economy and 2 crucial wickets. Finally, today I agree to the fact that Shahid Afridi can bowl 😉 . He was adjudged man of the match.

SriLanka need to introspect, why were they beaten? Two main batting mainstay of Lankan team, Jayawardena and Samarweera were out for paltry scores. I guess that made the difference. No I’m not denying credit to Pak expresses, never. They deserve a pat. Sri lanka could not get that start for which they are known for. Pakistani bowling machines performed their job splendidly. They never made any pair to stick longer, wickets fell at regular interval, when it was needed the most. The famous cuddle (I remember it was Indian team who started it all under Ganguly) could not help Srilankans to fall prey to Pakistani bowlers.

Any way, if I had to rate todays Pakistan performance viz a viz India’s performance against BD. I would rate Pakistani all round performance better than that of India.

For now…Tomorrow is a big match. India playing against England. Stay tuned…

Here’s a surprise that popped up while I submit my Todays Post. enjoy!


  1. Oh yes…Pak did a splendid job..other than thr poor fielding…other departments delivered..so all good…

    Disappointed with SL..coz thr weakness in the middle order was clearly exposed.. plus they dun have d finishers…might hurt them in d latter stages of d tournament..

    Chalo..Ab all eyes on Bharat…I guess I’m gonna hve a sleepless nite 😀

    • abbe o 😛 afridi can bowl 😛 5/16 is NO JOKE !!

      seriously tho, SLs batsmen did let them down. wouldnt fault their bowling and fielded…restricting the paki frenzied hitters in the batting PP is a great achievement.

      SL doesnt have the depth they need to be seriously competitive…its just some batsmen at the top…it also lacks the crazy hitters that cud help them in the PPs, warna to just 7-8 runs in a batting PP? thats just a grand waste of a PP…so bad even with Pakis shit fielding SL didnt manage to get the required runs. to soch lo na how bad they were.

      wish SL best of luck tho, if we dont win, i wud def want SL to win the title.

    You’ve lost me in the sports department; especially, in the sports like Cricket, and Fussball, etc. At this late stage I could care less about sports, except Golf.
    Take care, Charlie 😉

    • Long time Charlie. I understand. But can’t help it. The game of cricket just make us Indians go wild. There is no lIfe just CRICKET. 🙂 And everytime there is something to say. If you read last four articles, I have written, I have just poured out… and this is going to get better with the match ushering into death zones.
      c ya
      take care
