Battle lost in batting, bowling and fielding, but the war is still on

Monday, 28 January 2013 - 13:12



SRI Lanka might have outplayed Australia in Sydney in the three disciplines of the game, batting, bowling and fielding, but now the question is whether at the MCG today it can outplay its rivals in just one cricketing format.


Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell acknowledged that the side had been bested in every department in its five-wicket loss to the visitors on Saturday night, while captain George Bailey was especially savage in his critique of Australia's fielding.


A win tonight, however, will mean the Sri Lankans will not return home empty-handed but with a 2- nil T20 result that will further secure their position as the world's No 1-ranked team in the shortest form of the game.
