    Six of the Best Games - Aus vs SL Rivalry

    Fierce rivalry between Aus and Sri Lanka was ignited in the 95/96 B&H series in Australia. Over the past 10 years since then, there have been some cracker contests between these 2 nations - I have picked my 6 best ODI's in this video clip.

    1. 1995/96 B&H Series, Melb - this game revitilised the SL campaign in Australia, and was the start of an amazing 12 months for SL cricket.
    2. 1996 WC Final - That famous day in Lahore - Need I say anymore.
    3. 1996 Singer Cup Final - SL stretched their win record to 3 out of 3 games against Australia. This final was a massacre as SL romped home easily as Aravinda goes crazy in last few overs.
    4. 2002 ICC Semis - Another big game, another big win for SL as the boys easily win by 7 wkts, with 10 overs to spare.
    5. 2004-2nd ODI in Dambulla. The classic Dr Death over by Vaas secures a remarkable "come from behind win" after Symonds is recalled in an amazing act of sportsmanship.
    6. 2006 VB Series in Sydney - Sanath gets off a plane after his shoulder injury, and fires another rapid century to pulverise a hapless Aussies team. Superb fielding secures another big win. Sadly, the crowd leaves early as its very one-sided.

    Enjoy the clip, and pls let me know your personal favourite match in the comments in YouTube.

    I saw a video just yesterday of this game, in which Australia chased down 260 against SL with Gilchrist scoring a very nice century. I'd try to find it, but youtube isn't working for me atm.

    One that stands out to me was when Murali went 1-99 against Australia. He then got 1-55 in the next game - Australia really hammered him. He was made to look quite ordinary in those two games. I was disappointed Murali didn't play against Australia the other day because he's always tested the best against them and you get to see a great battle.

    This video was put together for a Sri Lankan forum....hence the games were chosen from a Lankan viewpoint....as some of these games are rarely seen classics with some great cricket from both nations, I believed that there would be some interest on this forum.

    From an Aussie viewpoint, I wonder which games will figure in an Aus-SL Best Games pick?

    Heh, it does seem that way!

    Personally, I tend to forget all about Aussie wins over my favourite teams.

    Ashes? The last ones were 2005, weren't they?

    Why are guys having a go at him, he's shared some cool videos. They may not be all time great games, but I'm happy he posted them.

    In a tight situation, or a big occasion like a final, SL have generally prevailed over Aus.

    Why? In each of these 6 games in the video clip, Aus has gone into the game as top dog - and in some cases (eg: WC '96, Aus collapse from 152/2 in 30 overs to 241 in 50) the pressure has got to them. Even in tight run chases (eg: Aus-SL '04, Bevan and Symonds are unable to get Aus over the line despite needing only 6 off the last over - the famous "Dr Death over" by Vaas) there is a prevailing sense among the Lankans that the Aussies do choke.

    Interesting to see how the Aussies fare in the big final on Sat night.
