Default Reverse Swing or Short Pitched

What brought down the tigers to earth? Was it reverse swing or short pitched bowling? The bowler can claim credit for the former but the batsman is to blame largely for the later.

Some articles claim it was the momentary reverse swing but cricinfo comentary described most of the deadly deliveries as short pitched.

If I'm not mistaken, short pitched and reverse swing can not be produced in a single delivery since ball stays in air before pitched for a very short amount of time to cause any swing at all. So what was it?

I think it was reverse swing. Short pitch won't have done that much damage.

Reverse swing. High speed swinging yorkers. But tigets are not the only one.
Australia got the taste last year in Srilanka. That also happened after launch!
