Sri Lanka’s record making wins against Australia, incredulous as it may seem, can no doubt be attributed to the new found resilience that is showing up in our team’s all round performance. Such is the emerging strength in our team that if for instance our first order of batsmen or even our bowlers are found wanting the second order, or for that matter even the third order, can be counted upon.
If this strength lives up as a sustainable and dependable attribute, then it surely augurs well for the future.
When our ‘greats’ in Jayasuriya, Vaas and Murali were all but in their swan song, there was concern that Sri Lanka was in the evening of its glorious days! But clearly that is not what we are seeing. Rather, there seems to be a new dawn.
