The champions trophy! Happenning in India!

I've not blogged for quite some days now. My net connecition was down.
Meanwhile all these days a lot has been happening.

Cricket flash : Sri Lanka beats Bangladesh quite easily(Surprise! Surprise!) .But it was actually quite a surprise, the way Bangladesh batted. They loooked OK I should say. Good luck to them.

Cricket flash : And SriLanka beats Zimbabwe too, this time even more easily. Upul Tharanga stars in both these matches with back to back centuries. He is not bad you know. The whole Lankan team is not bad, but of late I think they have slipped. Good players are few and far between. But when they are good, they are really good. Sangakkara, Atapattu, Jayasuriya, Murali, Jayawardene all these guys on their days,can wreak havoc on the field. But they can't fire every match, can they? And precisely here lies Sri Lanka's problem.

Cricket flash : Meanwhile the West Indies are playing Bangladesh today. Bang were some 80/1 from where the have slipped to some 170 odd all-out. Sad. The West Indies we know are quite capable of bettering Bang as far as a batting collapse is concerned. So the match is still open. Remains to be seen what happens........
