Kaluwitharana - superstar

Romesh Kaluwitharana is amazing. Last night he kept up his *** on opening
bowlers in the current WSC, belting 50 off 31 balls and eventually making 74
from 68. His eye and timing are incredible. Anything a fraction short or
wide is a certain boundary, and often he doesn't appear to hit the ball that
hard...his six off Curtly Ambrose in Perth was virtually a "flick". Of course
Bevan's strike rate is comparable with Kalu's, but he doesn't make the runs
with anything like the spectacle of the Lankan. The Australians have nicknamed
Kaluwitharana "The Don". Praise indeed.

Until the other day I hadn't realised he scored 138 off 150 balls on his Test
debut against Australia in Sri Lanka. Apparently his (until now) poor keeping
skills have kept him out of the side (he's determined to play as a keeper,
apparently, not just as a batsman). His emergence has considerably
strengthened the Sri Lankan batting, enabling the previously struggling
Mahanama to drop down the order where he is now making runs again. As far as
the World Cup goes, I still think that the Sri Lankan bowling lacks depth and
penetration although on the low, slow pitches of the subcontinent having
slower bowlers may be an advantage. It's notable that most of SL's ODI
victories have come when batting second (although they did defeat the WI
batting first the other day, the Windies helped with some inept batting), and
I'd think they'd prefer to play that way in the WC.

Tim.

By the time you reach your 15th birthday you _should_ realize just how
childish the above comments sound.  Ozzie supporter, eh?  Really?  None
of would have guessed it if you hadn't demonstrated the correct use of
capitals.

I hope this guy does not represent the opinion of majority Australians.
Because if it is the case, they should be shameful about this kind of language
and attitude.

Had a bit too much to drink, mate? This just screams 'Balanced' and
'Objective', doesn't it? Had to laugh.
Freedom of expression's a great thing. ;-)
Just love that disclaimer.....
Note: I quoted it all 'cause it was just too stupid and bigoted to be
allowed to slip thru without all getting to view the emerging genius..

cheers,

Mic.

a) what were you doing letting him use your account.
b) you obviously got to it before it was posted
c) it sounds to me like you're trying to cover your butt.

No way does this represent the majority of Australians. From the crowd
reaction when he was going virtually everyone appreciated Kaluwitharana's
batting when he was firing and no one was satisfied with the lbw Randall gave
in the first final.
Mind you there is a fair "yobbo" element in Australia I was at bellerive oval
in 1988 when the famous "Hadlee's a ***er" chant went up. I think I was
probably just about the only person who applauded his very good innings of 52.
So the majority probably don't agree with it and find it disgusting but there
is, imo, a not insignificant minority who would agree.
