There was no other way to describe this... It was just the brilliance SL batsmen that won the game for SL. Just their brilliance and nothing else. I mean let's face it...293 was more than enough on a must win game against the chasers! When England were set for a score around 270 they have almost got 60% chance of winning. And once they reached 293 they've won it 80% as it was SL batsmen who crushed for 139 in the previous game had to chase it under pressure in a must win game!

It's natural to see, once you couldn't defend 290, you feeling that you were 20/30 runs short...
So do you agree that it's fair to say that England were not short of anything but were completely out played by SL batting brilliance.
