An Amazing Performance

Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela JayawardeneWhat a spectacular achievement! I never expected to see the highest partnership in first-class cricket record broken. Mahela Jayawardene’s personal total was the fourth highest ever in Test cricket. I wonder how he is feeling tonight — satisfied with his phenomenal performance, or disappointed that he failed to take the record from Brian Lara?

I was also extremely pleased with England’s destruction of Pakistan. Hopefully this is a sign of a general improvement in our form, which has not been that good since we won the Ashes.
