Well folks I just said the losing at home needs to stop not embarrass the number 2 team! That was yet another demolition job and game was done in 2 days. SA were so clueless they actually picked 3 seamers for a dry SSC wicket. I think they knew in the first 10 minutes of the game just what a hold SL had on them.

Dimuth has turned a new chapter in his career with this series. He has been making runs for a while but this was a touch series for everyone and he was miles ahead of all and hardly looked in trouble. Remember he got a 150 in the first test and no one got 50.

We now know when Herath will finish which is sad but again he marked his territory with yet another display of classic left armers - what about the beauty to De Brien today? Happy to see Anji make a few runs but this guy needs to make an impression on a series. He should be our number one batter and far from it right now.

I was surprised Akila was left out in the first test and made an immediate impact in the second test and is surely lining up Herath's spot after November. Danushka made a name for himself but I see has managed to get himself in to trouble which is a real shame given the twin fifties.

Its great to get back to old ways of thumping visiting teams at home and this without our best batter and captain Chandi and this needs to continue. Next up England who will also have a few gremlins about spin with a lot of them not having played much in Asia and not sure who will partner Ali in the spin department.
