This is a facebook note i have written after Sri Lanka Lost the Cricket World Cup Final 2011.I'm just Publishing it now.. It is just the copy and paste.
Loosing the cup is really painful and felt by all the Sri Lankans that night in a bad way.
But I think we should admit that the Indians well deserve it. They fought absolutely well. Each player did his duty in an exceptionally neat fashion.Their bowlers were heavy enough to put pressure on our batsmen.As usual, their batting was very powerful, only two could blast the target.
And we should admit that we were really weak in the fielding. Our bowlers were not brilliant enough as we expected. Our set target was not that bad.If we were able to break some more wickets, we could have played a brilliant game.
But for one to win, one got to loose it. That is the nature of any game. Unfortunately it happened to Sanga and Lankans.
But, Failures are more powerful than victories, for victories are forgotten when the time of celebrations is over, but the failures are badly remembered until the pain is felt by the hearts.
Let's feel the pain and learn from the mistakes. Let's accept failures in a diplomatic fashion. Failures are the pillars of success.
I just didn't forget to congratulate our players for their terrific effort throughout the series to take us up to the finals and I didn't forget Mahela for his memorable unbeaten world cup century..
