I'll surely miss her funny and thought provoking articles. Her Australian way of looking at cricket was amazing and when she took a dig at the English or the Proteas, she made sure all would laugh....
Thank You Amy; It was a privilege knowing you.
Your genius will be missed greatly.
Australia who have a woeful T20 record have now lost their most prolific batsman. Ricky Ponting said, "After much thought and careful consideration I have advised Cricket Australia of my decision to retire from international Twenty20 cricket. I have also spoken to [chairman of selectors] Andrew Hilditch, [coach] Tim Nielsen and [vice-captain] Michael Clarke and I feel this decision provides me the opportunity to prolong my Australian Test and one-day career, an opportunity I am extremely determined about." Ponting who was the captain of Australia when Australia lost to Zimbawae in 2007 and also when Australia crashed out of the T20 WC this year, often found himself being criticized by many on his role in the shorter format of the game.
Jesse Ryder and Brendon McCullum dispatched the Sri Lankans bowlers at will scoring 52 and 49 respectively. Both showed courage and muscle during an 84-run opening stand in 62 deliveries blasting 5 sixes between themselves. Thanks to a cameo by Guptill, the Kiwis reached 170 runs setting a highly competitive target for the Sri Lankans.
Sri Lanka got of to the worst possible start as they lost star batsman, Dilshan in the very first over. Sri Lanka were pegged back to 11 for 3 in just the fourth over, thanks Shane Bond and Kyle Mills. This would definitely be a match [scorecard] that they would like to forget.
Sri Lanka fought back well under their finest stroke makers, Jayawardene and skipper Sangakara. But their fifty run partnership was brought to the ground just when it was taking of by Nathan McCullum. Nathan McCullum picked up two wickets while come back man, Shane Bond bowled a fiery spell getting 3 for 18.
