Vaas: “It’s a special moment for me after playing for 15 long years. I’d like to thank all the cricket lovers for supporting me throughout in my career. I’d like to thank my family for their love and support.”

Younis, big smiles as usual

Younis: “They built good partnerships and Sangakkara played really well. But it’s not too bad. We created chances in this series but the collapses cost us badly. The balls get soft very quick and the wicket slowed down quite a bit today. We just need to go and hang in there and learn to finish games. We have a good ODI team, with a couple of good allrounders, and hopefully some of the players can carry their good form from this Test into the ODI series.”

Sangakkara is the Man of the Match for his match-saving innings.

Sanga: “We played a good fourth innings and the players got into some form which bodes well for the ODI series. Angelo is very mature for a guy so young, and hopefully we’ll see bigger and better things from him in the next 12-15 years. We missed Murali really badly, but it shows that the new guys who come in are hungry for success. If Dilshan was fit, and had we made a few more runs after tea, we would have considered going for a win but I think we made the right decision in the end. We look for to play some really professional cricket, and ensuring a good start and finish to each game. Vaas has been a great inspiration for generations of cricketers. We can pay him hundreds of millions of rupees but that won’t make up for his contribution to Sri Lankan cricket.”

Kulasekara has been named Man of the Series.

Kulasekara: “I’m very happy because I played all three Tests. This is my first Man-of-the-Series award.”

Muttiah Muralitharan Breaks Akram’s World Record Video

February 6th, 2009 Comments Off on Muttiah Muralitharan Breaks Akram’s World Record Video Posted in Cricket Videos

Watch Muttiah Muralitharan become the highest wicket-taker in ODI cricket, breaking Wasim Akram’s world record of 502 wickets when he snapped up Gautham Gambhir in the 4th ODI SL vs India. The video includes a post-innings interview with Murali.

One of the most chilled out cricketers, everything that needs to be said about him can be found more eloquently in his stats here.

Just would like to add one thing that probably sums up the way Murali has played his cricket. A few years back, when Harbhajan Singh was having trouble in a test series vs Sri Lanka, Murali broke down certain aspects of offspin bowling for him, the day before SL were coming out to bat. As things panned out, Harbhajan ended up taking a pile of wickets. Cricketers help each other out, no doubt, but I wonder how many do it in the middle of a test match.

2 Runouts in 1 Ball | Genuios piece of thinking by Murali and Sangakkara | Sri Lanka vs Kenya

December 3rd, 2008 Comments Off on 2 Runouts in 1 Ball | Genuios piece of thinking by Murali and Sangakkara | Sri Lanka vs Kenya Posted in Cricket Videos

Though Sri lankan team manage to out both the batsman but as per cricket law only one batsman can be out in 1 ball. Actually what happen that ball was hitten by striker to the off side for one run but due to missunderstanding their became run out chance for sri lanka. Both batsman were in the middle of the crease. So, the fielder of Sri Lanka team thrown ball to sangakkara & Sangakkara thought that it would be better to out non-striker as he is more powerful batsman so he thrown back the ball to Murali at non-striker’s end but throw was little bit outward from stumps so it took some more milliseconds to take off the bails.

Though he manage to take off the bails, Murali was not sure whether he made it or not so he thrown back the ball to the keeper to striker. Still the other batsman was in the middle and their was no chance that he can be back in the crease. Murali throw was accurate and gone in the hand of sangakkara and he take off the bails of the wicket.

Now, the matter was with third who was out and who not. As per rules the batsman who outs first is finally said to be out and other batsman is servived and that happen too. Though it was incidential run-out of both but will be remember for brilliant thinking of sangakkara and Murali. As per new scenerio, it is said that new law will come in which 2 out in 1 ball will be possible.

We hope to see new big changes in cricket.
