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.

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.
