Memorable match.. Ranathunga kicked Emerson's *ss.
& murli scores the winning runs hahah ..i'm sure that was Emerson's worst day in his life lol
that was a very impressive batting line up wasn't it? with Ranatunga, Mahanama coming down the order. And Mahela was playing in place of Aravinda.
Ranathunga was rock solid in the middle order physically n mentally..
coincidence - Dinesh Chandimal played a similar match winning inns during the CB series and the dismissal was similar too :)
succession of generations! :) wat we now need is someone like ranatunga or arnold 5down.
Jeevan Mendis shd take that position..
this was the game murali called for chucking.And mahelas first tour.Aravinda was injured so mahela came in.It was the best mahela innings in ODIz for me.Better than 2007,2011 semi final and final centuries in my book.We were badly hit by Murali incidents and mahela came on top and won us the game.
Those days bats are like soft ball cricket bats compare to bats nowadays.
Anyone knows a full highlights link for this match???
