Lost in Sri Lanka

- 2 test matches
- a series
- RSVS batting reputations (the legends)
- reputation as best players of spin
- reputation as good spin attack
- the confidence boost from the Aussie series
- SRTs record quest (temporarily misplaced)
- any slim chance of reentry into the ODI team for RD & SG
- any chance for Dinesh and Parthiv to challenge for Dhoni's spot
- Ishant to injury

- Gautam and Sehwag's opening combination which looked excellent compared to rest of the batting (though in reality it was probably not as good as it could have been).
- Dhoni (by all the above)

It hurts doesn't it?

RS said...

@vmm yes, but thanks to Bindra it has been mitigated and the cricketers must have been thanking him for putting this loss on the back burner :)

the makeshift keepers are a grt source of strength for msd.
their careers would be better served if they took to bowling.
