Another crazy test and another SL win!

Who would have thought SL would have won this series 2-0? Who wins both tests after making 120 and 96 in two of the 4 innings? Well SL does and its an astonishing turn around of form and honestly I can barely believe the result. Two big factors in the two test is of course runs. SL made 400+ in both tests and critically, based on two batters getting big hundreds. It's a long time since a batter got a big hundred and this makes all the difference.

Dimuth has moved in to a different league in the last few months. I thought he was playing for his spot against India but 5 tests later, he is in a different league. Dickwella again vital runs in both innings as did Herath. Dilruwan had an excellent game with a 50 and 8 wickets and was unlucky to miss on the man of match award. Worth noting that the pace men also got a couple of vital wickets with some excellent deliveries.

Not in my wildest dreams did I expect this outcome. Even after the first test, I never thought we would win the second and all credit to the boys. Couple of disappointments and the biggest being Thiri. I thought Pradeep had a poor series as did Mendis. I thought both Gamage and Sadeera made good starts and deserve the next test regardless which is most promising.

Absolutely vital points gained from the win too which keeps us afloat and desperately needed. All in all hugely satisfactory series after the recent shockers and plenty to smile about.

Now for the limited overs series where we need to make some serious adjustments and get some form.
