Sure, it’s nice to win, but hats off to the Sri Lanka cricket team for their marvelous effort in this recent World Cup tournament. I’m certainly no fan of cricket, but I had to support the home team even though they were up against some serious odds. Playing team India in Mumbai must have been bad enough, but when your star player, Murali, is also injured, there are handicaps that prove too difficult to overcome.
Still, Sri Lanka made it to the finals, just as they did in the 2007 World Cup (which they lost to Australia), and their drive and effort must be applauded. Sri Lanka has been a consistent power in the sport of cricket, and I know they’ll be back for more.
Until then, the best way to drown our collective disappointment is in a heaping plate of rice & curry!
