View Full Version : Useless banter

Looking at the scores of the two Sri Lanka matches in the Morocco Cup I kinda got the feeling that our 'weak' bowling actually didn't do too bad a job against the Lankan batsmen. It's our batting that flopped (still, we posted 200 and 226. Did someone say 76? Why on earth would you say something like that ?).

You cant forget, SL is the world's 3rd ranked team right now. I was happy with the bowling, its our batting that sucks.

Our bowling depends completely on the nature of the pitch.

If the pitch is suited for spinners, then our spinners do well, if the pitch is suited for pacers, then our pacers do well.

But our batting does not depend on the pitch - that is the problem.

The batsmen simply wont put their mind in it. Its unexcusable.
