Asela the SlayerFebruary 19, 2017
ASELA in Sinhala is pronounced “A-Say-La” … and living up to the implications of his name in English, he flayed and slayed the Aussies and Moises Henriques (that is “Hawnreeks” or something like that in Portuguese speech) for three sicxes in one over — doing a Dunkn really (that is, emulating Ben Dunk who dunked three sixes off a Munaweera over earlier in the day).
SL FAN: “One man Army, Guneratne!!”
SOME OTHER CRICINFO COMMENTS
Tharanga: Asela’s was an amazing innings. Even in South Africa he has done well. We lost too many wickets early but Asela finished the game for us. Winning in Australia is a huge achievement. This is Asela’s first tour to Australia and we are happy.
Uwaisul Karnain: “Very well Played Asela, now sit back and watch the IPL Auction tomorrow!”
HSR: “Right before IPL auction, AG Presenting his strong case.”
Karthik: “Two nail bitters in one day #NZvsSA #AUSvsSL. Can’t take anymore. “
Must Hamid: “Highest Scorer with the Bat and Most Expensive with the Bowl for His Team… What a day it was for Henriques !!”
Silva: “one should not forget Kapu’s contribution at a-run-a-ball which helped stabilise the innings!”
SamSL: “Asela’s inning can be one of the best T20I innings from a Sri Lankan ever….”
That is all we have for you from this thriller. Hope you enjoyed this game as much as we did bringing it to you. Thanks for tuning in. Do comeback for the final T20 in Adelaide. Until next time, ciao.
