Even by Sri Lanka’s often erratic standards this was quite a thrashing.

8 wickets and 8.5 overs to spare. It wasn’t even close. They were not even in the same league.

Lost the series too.

Then it occurred to me … and, as ever, I am the first to admit it. I am slow on the uptake. Always have been.

The Sri Lankan players, used to having Christmas off, irrespective of whether they worship their balls or not
(or even worse try to French kiss their bats) as you can often see on TV, must have decided to throw the match
— call it a day early.

He puts the ball on the ground and worships it too. I gag each and every time!

Nearly 9 overs short. That is like 45 minutes

Bravo to them. Well they showed that they have balls.

But, to be fair, it was probably done within the wider more
institutionalized framework of match fixing!

So that was a bonus for many.

Oh, dear … what has the world come to?

The Pakistani’s, who don’t celebrate Christmas, nonetheless got a wonderful Christmas present.
No wonder they are prancing around.
