SL won two successive matches in the VB series first beating SA and then Australia. For the first time in a long time SL put up a fighting 300+ total. The most heartening was the return of Jayasurya. If he can sustain this form SL’s problem of bad starts might be solved despite Attatpatu’s desire to hide in the lower middle order. The VB series should be interesting if SL can continue to win and put pressure on both SA and Aus.
Its a smart move by the Aussies to rotate their players no matter what Smith and Ranatunga say!
