What a show and Asela who!

Wow! What a performance and where did Asela come from? What a star and I thought he was lucky to make the squad. I thought he was more of a test and one day player but in 3 innings he has surely laid claim to the all important #4 batting spot in both forms of limited overs cricket. The man has a test century too so this guy flew under the radar and made a huge statement.

His innings last night is probably one of the all time great t20 knocks when you put it in to context that SL were 40/5 and were gone for all money. He also got a wicket and that's just yesterday. He was awesome in the first game too AND his previous innings was 100 against SA in the 50 over game. Man, where did this guy come from and surely he is in the team for a while now.

I was disappointed with the batting yesterday from the rest but all is well if it end well I guess. What about the old firm of Malinga and Kula with glimpses of their past glory. These two were instrumental in keeping a check on the Aus total in both games and great to see them back in the team. I must admit I assumed these two were done but here they are doing it all over again.

Didn't realize our t20 record in Aus - seriously who remains unbeaten in Aus!

With a second series secured overseas lots to look forward to but still a few things to work out. For example do we stick with Tharaga as an opener and captain when Anji is fit but this is a rare nice problem to think about for a change. Looking for a clean sweep in Adelaide.
