Two wins with the bowlers dominating. For those watching the Ashes you are excused for thinking it’s old goggle eyes up to his tricks again.
There was no Murali. No sir. I didn’t even see him in the dressing rooms. No Murali in sight and still Pakistan collapsed for
in 3 consecutive innings.
Quite amazing really. So the question everyone is asking at the Kottu roti joints in SL is do we still need him to win test matches?
Sri Lankas bowling has never been stronger. Nuwan and Mirando seems to have found an unexpected groovyness together.
Herath has entered the fray and shown us the threat he can become.
Splendid has discoverd test cricket is no walkabout. But he has shown what he can do.
Malinga is on the verge of playing test cricket again.
Prasad is chomping at the bit to be let loose.
Mathews is also learning the trade.
So do we still need Murali? Absofuckenlutely. I would still play Murali in test if we had Warne and Mcgrath bowling for us.
SL have won 58 tests in their history. Of those Murali has been involved in 51. You dont just ignore that.
Specially now at a time when Mendis seems to have lost a bit of his Splendidness.
