Day 1 - Tea - Australia 193/3 (57)
Eranga to Hughes/Watson. Short. Wide. Out side off. RUNS to Australia.
Mathews to Hughes/Watson. Short. Wide. Out side off. RUNS to Australia.
Kulasekara to Hughes/Watson. On the stumps. Cramped for room. Defended.
Herath to Hughes/Watson. Short. Wide. Out side off. RUNS to Australia.
You would have thought this was one of those "Immunity games" at the Biggest Loser TV show, considering how Short and Wide the Sri Lankans were, contrary to their slender-man-esque figures. And then out of the blue;
Welagedara to Hughes. Short. Wide. Out side off. EDGED. CAUGHT BEHIND! NO BALL!!!!!!!!
Could you believe that? Could you freaking believe that?? The Mayan calendar was more believable than that no-ball. Shame on you Welagedara, you have disgraced our ancestors.
|Welagedara persisted with the short and wide rubbish-corridor to Hughes and Watson,|
and thought it would be smart to bowl a no-ball every now and again, just in case he got an edge.
More on the second and last sessions after the game.
