What was inevitable has finally happened..just a lot quicker

It was all very nice to see the top five Bangladesh batsmen hold fort against the likes of Murali, Malinga and Fernando for as many as 80 full overs on the 3rd day of their test match against Sri Lanka. But then we all knew Sri Lanka had the game firmly in their grasp right from day one.

And on the 4th day Malinga's toe-crunching yorkers and Murali's cunning doosra's, quite a handful for any team, unsurprisingly proved a little too hot for the Bangladesh boys.

Malinga and Murali, in the space of just 5 overs between them, managed 5 scalps and sealed the match. Wow! That was quick! I knew the victory was coming..but not that quick!

And let not Malinga's colourful curls fool you. This man can talk a lot of sense. This interview of his where he talks about his unique bowling style, his inspiration and his strategies makes for some especially interesting reading.
