Barking up the wrong tree?

    What nonsense???

    Mahela would have been much stronger on that fateful day of fianls. He would have taken a better decision by judging the weather and making them bat agian next day.

    Seen that we lost due to bad weather, bad light and also Cheater-Gilchrist Squash ball *GIMMICK* let him score miracles and then admitting *Better side won* is not the good thing to say Mahela.

    you have a lot to learn from our ex-captian Arjuna. Pls go for it, you can do it Mahela.

    Sportsmanship is excellent if everyone practices. If SL does and Australia doesn`t, there is no point. There is no contest. Mahela would have been even smarter, had he responded to the weather call properly. He was far better than Marvan nonetheless!

    what steroids are you alluding too ??? and to all you others who have gone ape droppings over the squash ball I was pleased to read the MCC found Gilchrist had no case to answer as all reasonable people had already decided..

    Sportsmanship is what all strive for, but when Australia practices sportsmanship and Sri Lanka doesn`t (by refusing to accept the umpire`s decision) then all sporting contests are lost.

    I guess Sri Lanka win at all cost attitude means that they also want to umpire the game as well...but even then it would be doubtful that they would win, as they are just not good enough.

    If Australia had to bat second under poor light, what would T.R. Tamil TedThorne have to say?

    If Australia had have batted second, then they would have made the runs before the light became bad, before any rain came, and would have beenb celebrating vicotry in about the 30th over.

    Just like Australia did in the Super 8`s game when they whalloped (yet again) Sri Lanka.

    So what would Australia have had to say when the bad light and rain came, they`d have said to the waiters Please pass me a beer and get me some food thank you.
