boy!!!!the tour that changed the Lankan cricket...by the way Hilal, seems to be u have sm goodies in ur pocket....after watching some bias decisions made by umpires now i can understand the lyrics of the great song "B&H tharanga apita dinuma we....E suddan hora wada kara dinuma gaththane..."lolz
Even we could have won the 2004 vb series but in that 2nd final Mr.Bucknor-the so called greatest umpire in the world, was adamant that Arnold didn't take that catch of Ponting properly and even he didn't go for the help of the 3rd umpire!!!
And that so called man again came licking some Aussie boots in the 2007 World cup final!!!
Even his compatriot Billy Doctrove too has some problem in his eyesight!!!
@Sharown: Are you refering to the Sydney ODI in 2006? If so, the catcher (or the non-catcher) was Mahela Jayawardene, and Bucknor wasn't umpiring in that match.
I don't remember us playing ODIs in AUS in 2004.
@maestro_of_cricket: I think there was a 2002/2003 VB series, right? Or am I mistaken?
@Hilal: There was. But we didn't reach the finals that time. Sharown is mentioning about a 2nd final.
Thanks for joining Island Cricket, Sharown. I'm sure you'll love this place just like our International Cricket fb page :)
