    Good to see our cricketers have gained mental toughness to withstand any hostile situation in the field. However unable to understand why Sanga and Chamara threw their wickets when there were enough overs to bat.

    Now Sanga and rely on tail-enders as as well.

    Mahela should open the batting with Dilshan and drop Tharanga

    Congrads.

    Charindra Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:45 AM

    Especially THARANGA & CHAMARA......

    upul Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:46 AM

    One of the most exciting matches that I've ever watched. I was disappointed with Chamara Silva. He just threw away his wicket.

    Anyway, well done boys, keep it up and all the best for the rest of the matches!

    Mohamed Fouze Thursday, 04 November 2010 02:44 AM

    Siri Wednesday, 03 November 2010 12:35 PM

    Govt. Politicians - this is how you bring fame and glory to your motherland! Copy that!!

    Just witnessed cricket greatness @ MCG.. Nothing compares to being there in a sea of fellow-Sri lankans as the winning runs were scored. now thats how we roar.never give up till the end.

    ruzaik Wednesday, 03 November 2010 01:28 PM

    The downfall of the mighty Aussies.

    Shivanka David Wednesday, 03 November 2010 01:28 PM

    well Done Guys !!! The Lions Pride

    Lasantha Pethiyagoda Thursday, 04 November 2010 04:04 AM

    Cricket will always be a game of ups and downs, and we will still see more wins and losses. Apart from what the commentators had hitherto dismissed as possible only in a "miracle", our heroes made us proud to be Sri Lankan (once again!). What was interesting to observe was the body-language of the Australian players, in their typical arrogance when playing against a "third world" nation, which has never so far failed to stir the wrath of expatriates living here. I would suggest that they learn to be more humble and see themselves as equals of the sub-continental teams'

    Rafi Hassen Wednesday, 03 November 2010 01:38 PM

    """"WELL DONE SRI LANKA""""""

    Yeti Wednesday, 03 November 2010 01:39 PM

    Oh, that was one hell of a match! Well done boys. Show them who's boss in Sydney too!!

    dassanayake Wednesday, 03 November 2010 02:00 PM

    Angelo our would be captain

    the undertaker Wednesday, 03 November 2010 02:02 PM

    well done Sri Lankans guys- rest in peace for the kangarroo

    RDU Wednesday, 03 November 2010 02:10 PM

    Josh Wednesday, 03 November 2010 02:24 PM

    congradz lions!!!!

    proud to be a sri lankan!!!!

    seems like running up and down from lectures to the canteen to chk the score payed off!!! WAT A MATCH!!

    Shantha Premaratne Wednesday, 03 November 2010 02:27 PM

    It was one of a greatest match I have ever seen may be in the life time. Congratulations to Mathews, Malinga and Muttiah who played a critical roll in the match as a team to take SL for its winning position and gave a lesson to Aussies in their country itself that we have a courage to win even if the 8th wicket downed on our side. Thanks guys.

    Jonty Thursday, 04 November 2010 04:47 AM

    They started at St.Anthony's but they learned and matured at St.Joseph's

    Z Fernando Wednesday, 03 November 2010 02:38 PM

    Typical Sri Lankan attitude. Blaming the captain for whatever happen. I did not see anything wrong with captain. He did an excellent job to limit powerful Aussi batting line-up for a gettable total of 240. What can the captain do when his fellow batsmen play wild?

    chaser Wednesday, 03 November 2010 02:43 PM

    that's called spirit ..Future captain can be Mathews...Go Sri Lanka Go..

    LK Thursday, 04 November 2010 04:59 AM

    Because SL cricket team does not have any betrayers....

    ruzaik Wednesday, 03 November 2010 02:53 PM

    One more for the series, Two for the clean sweep

    Ahamed Afker Wednesday, 03 November 2010 03:06 PM

    Congratulation SL!..Matews,Malinga,Thisara & Murali were superb today.They make me proud today.What the hell Tharanga & Chamara Silva is doing in SL side.Please include Dinesh Chandimal for the next match.

    Whatever bro.. They represent Sri Lanka.. That's about it..

    M.Tharshan. Thursday, 04 November 2010 06:02 AM

    the win very Cute win good partnership mathews and malinga.

    Rafiq Wednesday, 03 November 2010 04:59 PM

    This could have been fixed. Very suspicious the results were. When Pakistan loses a game everybody says the game was fixed but when sri lanka win a game nobody says it was fixed. This is double standards.

    Dr I.M.C.Fernando. Wednesday, 03 November 2010 05:58 PM

    Congratulations to the Sri Lankan team on a very good victory. Keep it up and give the Aussies hell for a change !!! They are certainly not invinsible. England will soon give them hell too !!

    shace-UK Wednesday, 03 November 2010 07:00 PM

    Thisara Perera Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:23 AM

    Good performance by the Lion tonight, they really showed the Sri Lankan spirit and great effort to get us across the line by Malinga and Matthews, but what really made it one of the greatest wins that i have seen is the fact that Murali played a true batsmen's shot in what could be his last bat in Australia to win the match.

    Saman Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:24 AM

    Cogratulations, keep it up boys.

    Gayan Samarasekara Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:27 AM

    Mushi Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:28 AM

    Lot of thanks to Mathews and Malinga who made the win easy after 101/8 with some fluent batting. Top order should learn from them and play better in next games.

    akeed Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:28 AM

    WOW
    THIS WAS INCREDIBLE
    THE GREATEST CRICKET MATCH I EVER WITNESSED!!!

    Ela ela...well done boys...seems like australians are getting used to losing matches...

    Dinesh Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:33 AM

    All depend on Matthews. Too much for youngster. Give a break to Dinesh Chandimal. Chamara Silva is no use in International Level. Malinga is really a class act now.

    Rushdi al Ayad Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:34 AM

    Thanks Guys,

    U all made our dream come true..!!

    RPS Jayawardana Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:38 AM

    Well done. Congratulation

    safras Wednesday, 03 November 2010 10:38 PM

    Is not the right time to award a bit of respect to sri lanka. We dont get given to chance to play more than two test in Australia and England. ICC has to bring up some changes regarding awarding test matches to the countries.

    hemantha Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:38 AM

    Good lesson to learn some Top order batsmen..anyway did well in the fielding..totally team effort...keep it up !

    fresh_milk Wednesday, 03 November 2010 10:52 PM

    Well done..........you have shown the fighting spirit of the mighty Lions!!! Please don't get carried away....we have a long way to go before we beat the Aussies in Aussie soil. Stay Focused and we can party hard once the job is done!!!

    Riyazi-Dorking Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:38 AM

    What a match !!! Thank you Sanga for leading the Lions !!

    Lasantha Jayalath Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:08 PM

    It was one of the most memorable game I have ever witnessed at MCG. It was incredible to see Sri Lankan supporters enjoying themselves with a handful of Australian supporters. As a parent I was proud to see younger generation support the team without an incident unlike other Australian games people throw rubbish into the ground and get evicted due to drunkenness and other disorderly behaviour. Congratulations to the Sri Lankan team especially to Malinga and Angelo for this remarkable win.

    Charindra Wednesday, 03 November 2010 11:43 AM

    That was the partnership of the decade..
