Its over!

It was going to be tough and it was worse! The 3-0 result was never in doubt but the manner of the loss was worrying. The batting was no where all series with poor technique and shot selection. There is actually nothing to say about the batting.

One would say the bowling was decent but on perfect bowling conditions, we couldn't knock over the SA openers in 5 times they batted with 2 century stands and 2 fifty stands for the opening wicket. I must say Lakmal bowled really well but the news of the tour is Kumara. Not sure why he wasn't given the new ball but we all know the captaincy issues.

Better teams have toured SA and lost badly so the result was never an issue but the total inability to compete was awfully disappointing.

Looking for something better in the limited overs series.
