Jayawardene - a class act
I thought that the way Jayawardene carried himself and represented his country in yesterday's final was first class.
He showed great leadership and common sense in the way he dealt with the fiasco at the end of the game by quickly reaching an agreement with Ponting about the final three overs to avoid even more gloss being taken off the Aussies win by having to come back the next day.
Inadvertantly, he also saved the ICC a lot of face. Imagine if he and Ponting accepted that they had to come back next day, then an hour later the officials eventually get it right and tell an empty ground that the WC had already been won.
Well done to him - a class act as a player and a leader SL can be proud of. Pity the administrators couldn't have shown the common sense he did.
