India shock Sri Lanka
Posted in Sports News
India came up with an outstanding performance to annihilate Sri Lanka a short while ago chasing down the Lankan total of 320 within just 36.4 overs. Virath Kohli slammed 133 runs off 86 balls to help the Indians gain the bonus point in order to keep their hopes alive for the best of three finals alive. Lasith Malinga was the main culprit conceding 96 runs off 7.2 overs at an economy rate of 12.52 runs an over.

India, the great cricketing nation, has done it again. Bravo.
India the great cricketing nation has done it again. Bravo.
Dilshan scored a brilliant 160 runs to put him in front as the highest scorer in the series. Sangankkara scored a scorching 105 runs in 86 balls. Unfortunately, our fielding and bowling let SL down! How can we ever be the best team in the world if we do not shine in all three aspects of the game? One wonders, why Mahela continued to allow Malinga to bowl when he was thrashed all over the field. If not for this, we could have won easily. Was there an order from the ‘Helm’, before the start of India’s batting, to let India win? Is SL now a lapdog of India, though not of USA? SL team or sports can never outshine India ever, if SL politicians at the top intervene, to suppress a SL win in favour of India.
Of course Nicolas..!
Mahela responsible for continuing Malinga, while his econ rate going high. And he said in the end that nothing he could do.
In last matches i saw that Ausis captain stopped Brett lee when he become so. This match may sold mahela to india.!
Did india asked to let them win if we want support in UNHRC..?
I think Malinga and Mahela are to gain, if India allowed to win, after all they play in the Indian League matches, before long. They’ll both get big fat cheques in dollars! As for whether there was also political interference, who knows? I feel sorry for Dilshan and Kumar S who played their heart out! SL can never the world cup or Olympic cup at this rate with traitors inside the team who are corrupt and ready to betray the team and the Motherlanka for their porridge. I have no respect for these two. I hope they are removed from the team in shame, for steering the team to LOSE!
it’s great. Not any nation or country it cricket that’s great
I can smell match fixing by Mahela and Malinga. What do you think?
Mr Knicker-less Dias should be appointed non-playing Captain of the SL Cricket Team in additon to Chairman of Selectors and Head of Sri Lanka Cricket.
The know-all makes wild and speculative allegations against innocent cricket playing professionals just as he does with other countries, other persons and other institutions.
Yesterday’s match between Sri Lanka and India is the most authentic and best-ever 50 over game in a long, long time. The 22 players who represented their countries gave beyond their best to the game. The spirit of sportsmanship was at a new peak.
I am sure all sportslovers enjoyed the game and appreciated the role played by each of the 22 players.
Thank you guys, keep it up.
No other captain in the word ever, let a bowler to continue with 12+ econ rate. Even Dilshan could bowl there too. Mahela is the biggest bidder in IPL also.
Only Matt the pratt comes out with statements like he did, in blog 9.
Match-fixing and spot-fixing has spoilt the great game of cricket for all of us. India is behind this corruption, because of large-scale gambling. Huge amounts are at stake, involving celebrities like Indian film stars. Infact, Indian League Match Teams are owned by them. Big money to be made on the side-lines by the gambling that goes on, such as spot-fixing and match-fixing.
Last year, 4 Pakistani cricketers were found guilty and sentenced to prison terms by a London Court, for spot- fixing during the Pakistan-Endland matches. It involved, bowling ‘no-ball’ or a ‘wide’ by the bowler during a certain over. The bowler concerned is highly paid by the Indian gambling racket organiser. After they were found guilty they were sacked from the team. It was an invistigating British journalist who exposed the racket by posing as a gambler wanting to gamble large amounts of money. He videoed his interview with the Indian organiser of the gambling racket, during the ‘sting operation’. The court accepted his video evidence and the cricketers were proven guilty. If not for this exposure of the racket, the cricketers would have been still playing for Pakistan.
The Indian racket organiser said he had Indian and SL cricketers also in his book and names were mentioned, but as no concrete video evidence could be obtained from him, their names could not be revealed. We can only assume that what he said is true.
The evidence is that large scale betting on various outcomes during cricket matches involving Pakistan, Indian and SL are a fact, but hard to prove. We can only assume this to be true by the outcome of matches.
Let’s analyse the last match between India and SL on Tues 28/2/12. We scored our highest score, 320 in 50 overs. India opted to score 321 in 40 overs, in order to stay in the series and gain the extra point if they win. This is a tall order. However, it was not so difficult, given that behind the scene, secret negotiations were held to ‘assist’ India to win. This was done through poor bowling and fielding. The Indian best batsmen soon had a field day scoring at a run rate of 8-16 an over. They soon scored 321 in 36 overs. They made it look simple. Ofcourse it was made simple for them by the SL traitors in the team and the treacherous politicians and team managers involved. It was all done underhand. Nothing can be proven unless the captain and the bowlers involved spill the beans, which they are not going to do, if they value their lives. Besides they are to gain during the Indian League Matches with hefty cheques.
Politics are involved because we need India’s help in UNHRC meeting, UNSC and UNGA meretings to vote in SL’s favour or at least to remain neutral. Politicians do not care about country’s pride in winning the game if played fairly to the best of our team’s ability and skill, with dedication. The politians only care about winning the day on political issues in the international fora. Hence, we will never score victory against India in the matches that matter, because we are INDIA’S LAPDOG, SAD TO SAY.
The World Cup finals was between India and SL. We had a very good winning team who gelled well and played with dedication and motivation to win honour for the country. However, it was not to be. Four good players were ‘rested’ and replaced by weak players who had not even played in the whole series. Ofcourse, the die was cast for us to lose. The orders to do this came from above. After losing the finals, the Big Man said to console the team, “Never mind. We have to make India happy”. How ridiculous! What about making SL happy? What about our national pride? This happened because SL needed India’s ‘assistance’ on SL side, in international fora. SL IS THEREFORE FOREVER INDIA’S LAPDOG. How sad!
No wonder Sangakkara resigned from captaining SL future tests series! He know what went on behind the scenes, but his mouth is sealed. He was embittered.
There he goes again, the Knicker-less Mahatthaya; the two blogs 11 & 12 together more than 3000 words; that’s a truck-ful of Bull S***.
I predict a convincing win for Sri Lanka on Friday in the game against Australia which will enable SL in the finals. This will dumbfound the critics.
The finals of course, is a different kettle of fish. Australia is likely to de well there.
In blog 12 above you say “The orders to do this came from above. After losing the finals, the Big Man said to console the team”. However, you are gutless to tell us who this “Big Man” is. You are shit and piss scared are you not expecting the white van if you do so. I can organise some diphers for you if needed.
In one instance you caress their ….. and the next instance you crush them. You are nothing but a whimp and turncoat aptly named as Knicker-less by fellow blogger Arap.
Udurawana, You smelt a rat quite rightly, my friend. But your two friends, Matt the prat and Parakrama failed to do so. They are two naive suckers! I have gone off watching India vs SL now, as I know the match is always fixed for India to win, with SL team given some seeni bolas as santhosam.
Now you are talking sense after all this time, my friend. There are two faces to the maharajathuma, one to fool the local electorate who voted him in and the other to tackle the blatant ethnic clensing commited towards the end of the war in 2009 for which he is now put on notice by the world bodies. Remember no one can cheat another all the time. The day of reckoning has arrived for the rajathuma.
Do not worry about Matt and Parakrama as they are too smart and intelligent for you to comprehend and they know fully well what they are talking about.
India should be happy to make srilanka happy.
So never mind.
We won’t eat or drink cricket but just westing of time & money in cricket.
Then our sinhala national origin also from india by Vijaya, in the past. So it doesn’t matter to make india happy..!
The Big Boy thinks by making India Happy by letting them win in matches between India and SL, India will play in SL favour in the world fora. I have my serious doubts. India is just a catspaw of US imperialists. It is best for us hitch our wagon to the rising star, CHINA. Let us have defence pacts with China and Russia in return for a massive base in Trinco for China and writing-off our debts to China. This is fair game rather than fall victim to USA and lose all. To hell with India’s feelings about it. With China to protect us India will dare not rise against us militarily. Besides our military stregth will be augmented with arms from China and Russia, including aircraft and ships.
