    It probably felt like sharing for you. But whatever floats your boat, mate

    What is currently floating my boat mate, is you trying to tell me (and the rests) facts about my life without license to do so.
    It is rather amusing.

    That and the pile of drivel you posted about Sri Lanka that I've bookmarked or amusement.

    Or so i hear
    Yeah I know mate. I've had a Bo Peep at a couple of those turgid ATG Discussion/ Voting/ Draft threads which the usual mouth breathers spend most of their time in. They're usually dross, but this bloke has taken it to a whole new level. When they venture out of that particular box, they need putting back in it.

    As you know, I'm normally a very mild mannered poster who doesn't engage with four year olds posing as adults, but I got tired of this particular sad example of that phenomenon stealing bandwidth.

    Hopefully you'll keep it as a bookmark for a decade or three. By then they might have accomplished something away from their comfort zone.

    I doubt they care much about trying to rectify such records for a format nobody really cares about. in the format that people actually care about, particularly their countrymen, they've been a cracker of a team for the last 20 years.
    so thats what matters, really.

    If they fluke out to being a dominant test team, they'll take it obviously but it should also be obvious, that it is not their main focus. nor should it be.

    You are very close to what i actually did but it was not Tugga's style to bat four feet out from the stumps.

    And for years I thought the scrotometer was just a myth.

    Its not better format of the game because you are better at it. Test cricket is considered the best form of cricket because you have to both bat well and take 20 wickets. Ask MSD about that. The latter is difficult when you produce wickets like Galle, kandy and SSC where so many test matches did not produce a resuland only batsmen like Mahela could pad their averages. Yes I'm talking about the 900 game.

    Winfield Grey then Marlboro Lights for some of it. When I wanted a smooth, easy-paced, chilled taste with nothing uneven I smoked Sri Lankan pitch.

    Dunno. Too many Victorians in the team is my first thought.

    It took a few years before Australia took it seriously, which was a mistake. But they should be better at it by now.

    Holy **** my thread has been completely hijacked and **** upon.

    Burgey this is on you. This thread should have been a comical way to make fun of the choking nature of both these teams. Not a white man vs. brown man war.

    ffs.

    I reckon Kulasekara is one of the best in limited overs and he swings a mile. On his day he's deadly. Sour grapes for us, How on earth you forgetting that Slinga fella smoking with his deadly yorkers, SL isn't a joke, Felt AUS is a JOKE after big bash packed hitters and won only against Bangladesh,

    Gabba I thought we wouldv'e all out under 50 runs, Thank god to that final partnership it wasn't the case.

    I think you miss the point. As I mentioned in my intial post, even the impaired kid came onto the basketball court and shot some three pointers in that high school game in the States.

    You quite rightly point out Australia's struggles in India, even in the format which matters most to them, and to all true lovers of the game. But Sri Lanka has had 30 years or more to accomplish something around the world at cricket. Thirty years! Humans went from propellor aircraft to walking on the moon in that time, yet Sri Lanka has done **** all when all they've had to do is win a series in a few places they aren't comfortable in.

    Don't you find that embarrassing?
