That last shot screams “match fixing” it was that bad.

Could Sri Lanka have two batsmen carry their bats in two consecutive matches?

Biggest wicket of them all gone now. Sub-200 would be an amazing result for Afghanistan.

That might be the worst shot I’ve seen this year, and I’ve watched a lot of ****ty cricket.

I don’t have anything invested in this game except my time, but I’m really disappointed in this. What an abject display.
I take that back - trying to reverse sweep Rashid Khan when you’re the only recognised batsman left is simple idiotic.

Shows you just how bad South Africa are
Which in turn highlights how s**t Australia are for continually losing to them. They’ve lost 6 series in 11 years.

In the last 2.5 years Australia has done the same.

Admittedly they didn’t lose at home to Sri Lanka though.....

We save our best cricket for the real stuff. No point winning meaningless series when you can’t back it up at World Cup’s like Eng-er-land.

I mean I agree with most of that but I'm not sure South Africa beating Australia 11 years ago has much bearing on how **** either side is now.

Australia have been ordinary for a number of year you won't get an argument here, batting especially has been flimsy and a bunch of flat home track bullies.

I'm taking nothing away from Sri Lanka, but South Africa minus ABDV just isn't the same. Miss watching ABDV at the top level.

Tests don’t mean anything?

Kudos for australia’s ridiculous ability to rise for a World Cup, it’s uncanny (though to be fair for 3 of the 5, they’ve been miles better than basically any other team around anyway) but when it’s all said and done players are rarely going to be judged at the end of their careers purely on a one day trophy cabinet.
