When Dilshan attempts the Dilscoop, you know he’s beginning to feel good about himself. Personally preferred the Upul Tharanga hundred today, though.
Given how Murali went through NZ in the group stage, his uncertainty for the semis might just open out that game a bit more. But even with England looking like finally having run out of ideas and inspiration (could have better used Luke Wright at the top though and let Bell be), the nature of this win must finally have justified Sri Lanka’s pre-tournament tag as favourites.
