Default SRilanka humiliates weak teams?

Is it the case that they always humiliate weak teams to make some records. Like getting out canada for only 35. humiliating weak teams in WC. I mean they didn't need to score 577/6 in reply to 89.

They play cricket like it is supposed to be played ... they give their 100% in every match they are playing, regardless of the "weakness" of the opposition.

Yes they needed to do that. That is how they play cricket. if they really wanted to humiliate then they would have declared at 200 and tried to finish the game in 4 sessions.

Steve Spurrier the ol ball coach was asked once why he runs up score on a game where the result is already locked. His answer was it was not his job to stop the offense. It was the other teams defense's job.

Isn't it the team who went to WC final? Isn't it considered the best SL team ever? Instead of trying to find some excuses (AND making a wholesale change to the team) we need to realize our weaknesses and start working on it.

Srilanka is one of the best team of the world and probably the best bowling attack in the world now specially after McGrath and Warne's retirement. Theya re playing like champions , not humiliating anybody!

well i agree to a certain extent. the most humiliating part in todays play was to see vaas getting a century..who knows if malinga or murali too could have got one...no doubt sri lanka could have declared much much earlier but they just went for records and vaas will now hold a century when he retires, how nice the bd bowlers are.

on the contrary can u believe it the highest from the first innings was only 16 on the same dumb, dead and flat pitch?

Sri Lanka scored 756 for 5 in an innings against South Africa with Mahela scoring 374 and Sanga scoring 287 in a 624 run, 3rd wicket partnership. The Lankans went on to win by an innings and 156 runs. South Africa must be a "weak team" then eh?

No need to flaunt your ignorance and dis somebody else just because you're frustrated. Growing up ain't that hard to do.

well i think if saf played so badly they were humiliated as well on that day. however things like this are rare and occurs once or twice in a year. having said that, saf at least scored 450+ in their second innings, that was some fightback. i hope bd also shows some fight back not only in the second innings but in the remaining two test as well and we dont see the same picture at least again in this series.

making 577/6 was more like a respect shown rather than humiliationfor Bangladesh. Would u prefer them declaring at 280, assuming that BD couldn't possibly score more than 200 in their second innings?

you raised a good point, but may be they intended to give their lower order some batting practice

haha well said, so true, back in 80's and early 90's sl was in the receiving side of all the records but hard work after 96 able to get most of those records back like,

Highest ODI score, 443/9 against Netherlands in 2006
Highest Test Score, 952/6 against India in 1998

Lowest ODI Scores,
1.) 35 (18 overs) Zimbabwe v Sri Lanka 2004
2.) 36 (18.4 overs) Canada v Sri Lanka 2002/03
3.) 38 (15.4 overs) Zimbabwe v Sri Lanka 2001/02
7.) 54 (26.3 overs) India v Sri Lanka 2000/01

you jumped to 7th after 3rd..where is 4,5,6 mate?

anyway u will find one two low scores (< 100) for every nation becoz they have been playing cricket for so long. the problem is when such low scores instead of a rarity becomes the predominant one.

I know these statistics. No hard feelings intended. the present Srilankan team is a collection of gems. Even I used to like the players like Mahanama, Gurusinha, Mendis, De Silva, Arjuna ... they were really outstanding. just wanted to notice the amount of difference with the top cricketing nations (srilanka had during that period)

cheers

I think it's the right time that banglaFans try to understand that ODI and TESTS are very different ball games,not the least to speak about the BD players.

delaying the inevitable is like slow poison..its more humiliation than respect..and btw if they would have declared at 280 how would have vaas then manage to score a century? i am glad that they stopped their humiliation at that point and dont let further lower order batsman to carry on.

You are kidding me right? This is professional cricket match, not some charity show. Or would you rather have them treat us like 'dood bhat'?
