Bitter Pill to Swallow!

Bitter Pill to Swallow!

Warning this pill can only be purchased with a prescription


  • Sri Lanka loses the second T20I to Australia after just posting 6 in the super over.  

Yesterday’s match was an absolute thriller. At one stage during the match, Sri Lanka was gone for all money but somehow managed to force a super over through the brilliant of Pathum Nissanka and some unlikely heroics from Maheesh Theehshana and Duhmantha Chameera. However, the Sri Lankans were only able to score 6 in their super over and their million-dollar sensation Wanindu Hasarange wasn’t able to defeat the total hence handing the Australian another victory. 

Defeats like the one yesterday are always though. As cricket fans especially Sri Lankan cricket fans, the thing we all want from a team is to fight and compete. However, close defeats like the one yesterday are the ones that make me think that it would have been better if Sri Lanka lost by a big margin. 

It’s ironic really, when the team loses by a big margin, we criticize them for not competing but when they lose by a close margin, we have that weird feeling and don’t know whether to be happy, sad, or angry. However, If you ask me, I would say close defeats are always better than big defeats though it is hard to accept.

In conclusion, close defeats are bitter pills to sallow as they are packed with an unknown weird feeling. So as Sri Lankan cricket fans you tell me whether you want to continue to take bitter pills or not? If yes, then let’s hope that the bitter pills are packed with more just an unknown weird feeling but let’s also hope that they are filled with vitamins!
