This is how Australian web , sportal.com.au reported Kulatunga heroics at Warriers match:
” Warriors quick Rusty Theron (3-23) removed Mahela Jayawardene (0) and Mahela Udawatte (2) in an exciting start to the match.
Jeevantha Kulatunga exploded shortly after, however, plundering the Warriors new-ball attack all over the Port Elizabeth ground.
Despite the departure of Jehan Mubarak (9), Kulatunga shared an impressive 60-run union for the fourth wicket with Kushal Janith Perera as the Sri Lankan side built their innings.
Kulatunga blasted 59 runs from 44 deliveries – including six boundaries and three sixes.”
jeewantha kulatunga is best .. we hope he will come back again…..
jeewntha kulatunga is a super hero……….one fail not a matter…..next time surely he get a 50 or big century
Pathetic…. what happened Kushal Perera who scored valuable 39 runs in the previous match..
dilruwan perera his replacement failed badly. Kaushal Lokuarrachi another additional spinner not even used surely another front line batsman would have been better.. Welegedara is useless giving so many runs.
As usual Mahela not delivering in a crunch game & causing additional pressure for the batsman to follow, should have used a young guys to pinch hit early not sending the best batters upfront Bad strategy caused the side to loose this badly.
We should use a coach to strengthen the mental ability to cope pressure situations first, it’s not the skill we are missing it’s the mental ability we are lacking, how many times we have seen SL teams crumble down pressure very easily unlike other champion teams Aussi, South africa etc.
We don’t mind loosing a match with a fight but this kind of meek cricket by SL teams makes the viewers fed up of watching SL cricket.
hmmm… lets face it…. this Jeevantha Kulatunga is no super hero…!! out with a first ball duck..!!
Yeah true..he failed this time, but from the limited opportunities given to him has proved he is a bettersteady player than some of the guys who are in the squad namely Kapugedara, Thilan. where thilan is slow in run making as well.
jeewantha kulatunga is a super heroo no doubt
hey kevin do u remember shaun marsh in last ipl.. he got 59 his frist match but he failled second match out 0 ..as a result of it marsh was droped and mahela named as panjab openner but marsh come again and got 88 his 3 match against chennai…so kulatunga is a batsman like shaun marsh ….he will come again… surely … bec..he should be in wc squad ….hey… do u knw hw many ducks (0) got by sanath jayasuriya he got 35 so one duck not a problem …………
