SL flayed SA by 55 runs. After posting a whopping 319/8, Mendis, Malinga and friends proceeded to feast on the SA batsmen for dinner, dismissing them rather simply. After Mendis’s successive wickets of Kallis and Duminy, one felt that it would get over in a hurry.
MTJAG’s Man of The Match: Dilshan. There’s no question about it. He’s a man-eating freak.
MTJAG’s You Suck like The Vacuum Cleaner: The whole SA batting line up. While I was tempted to pick Duminy as the fall guy, I felt that 1 guy should have stuck around and the rest build the chase around him.
MTJAG’s Other Worthless Turd Nuggets: M’s the way to go when it comes to the SL bowling attack: Mendis, Murali, Malinga, Mathews.
Now, an Ode to Dilshan:
1. Dilshan has officially been included in the list of “The Ten biggest threats to our galaxy.” The other 9 are Ajit Agarkar and his 8 illegitimate children.
2. Dilshan eats plutonium on a daily basis, which explains his 3 radioactive balls.
3. Dilshan’s Dilscoop was actually first discovered accidentally by him when he tried to protect his toes from being vaporized due to Ajit Agarkar’s 40 km/h toe-crushing yorker.
4. Dilshan’s beard is not by choice. It’s a result of a fight with “Samba” his pet lion playfully scratching parts of his chin off. Needless to say, Samba will be missed.
