It would seem that the Sydney Daily Telegraph Sports writers have either been asleep or are bemoaning the fact that the Sri Lankans have handed out a good thrashing to the Aus ball whackers in all forms of the game, yes by the team who recently were walloped by the poms or Englishmen if you wish to be polite.
To add to this misery, the England one day cricket team have in the past two days established another record by surpassing the previous scores of Aus and Sth Africa played on a short boundary pitch. a while back plus beating the individual score to add to their triumph with seven of their players not needing to bat in this debacle
Previous Individual score 168 now 171. previous Aus score 434, Sth Africa 438. England now 444 with only 3 wkts down on a pitch with longer boundaries.
There has been no mention of this info today and most likely if it is mentioned would have similar exposure as the hiding in the 1938 test at the oval in Surrey when the England team beat Aus by an innings and 579 runs after scoring 903 for 7, the result in the Sydney Telegraph was hidden between a hair loss advert and another giving 10% off for a treatment for piles.
The last couple of days has been dealing with health checks and other household matters which creep up on you when least expected , but all is well and shall be back on track soon.
Vest.... Back soon.
