Only T20I: England v Sri Lanka at The Oval, May 20, 2014

Postby SuperGLS » Tue May 20, 2014 12:39 pm

What's that? Real life international cricket is back? Maybe all the IPL haters will return to CF. Of course it's still more T20, so maybe not.

Looks like no Dernbach which means Ankur will be sad. No Mahela or Sanga means the likes of Mathews, Chandimal and Kula will have to finally step up alongside Dilshan.

Doesnt Dilshan seem like the odd man out?

Looks like Perera caught a KPXI bug, smashed the English for 49 from 20.

Its not like county cricket, country comes first if you are playing IPL.

England were never going to chase that down, I was surprised it got that close after I switched off earlier. Usual symptoms, overseas teams bravado and class, England ponderous, dithering about, no fire in their bellies, usually get what they deserve.

As far as I know, Malinga has now departed IPL7 for the Sri Lanka ODI series v England.
