Wow!
What just happened there?
I was out, didn't check the score till now.
I thought we'd be cruising, considering how well we had recovered.
Shocked at losing our last 5 wickets for just 23.

Anyway, congrats, Sri Lanka!
Clean sweep (though it was only a 2-Test series), that too in the UAE, where we had never lost a series before.

The best thing about these 2 Tests was that they were both closely fought, exciting games.
Not like the boring SL-BCCI series.

You can tell 'Closely Fought' only, if first 5 scores good in both the second innings of entire series.SL's scores 96 only in 3rd innings yet Pakistan not able to win because their first 5 totally fails in both tests's second innings.

Dimuth Karunaratne is both the Man of the Match as well as the Man of the Series.
=======================================================================

For me, "closely fought" is a game that goes back and forth, and till the end, either team has a decent chance of winning it.
That was the case in both Tests here.

Ya but still its shame,''only 4 times its happen in 124 years test history'', sides bowls out under 60-96 in the 3rd innings won test

Funny game cricket : England Bowls out 45 all out 1st innings) won by 13 runs vs Australia.

Sri Lanka have now moved ahead of us in the ICC Test rankings.
We're at 7 now, SL are at 6.

Since 1989, I identify more with Pakistan than with BCCI.
