How long ago was this? He played for Somerset around about 2005 didn't he?

'05 yup. Sanath and Graeme Smith put an opening partnership for Somerset to destroy Australia. The Aussies were playing a warm up match before the '05 Ashes against Somerset, if I'm not mistaken.

Ah yes I remember that. Mind you, that wasn't a very good tour for Australia was it? They got taken apart at Essex as well. Alistair Cook scored big iirc.

Sanath's played for a few Counties now I think. Lancashire and Warwickshire...

It was sweet as hell for any non Aussie watching.

If anyone has video of that Somerset Vs Australia match, would like to buy it off you.
