Finally a Final

You know how semi finals have been a bitch for us lately, right? See there, how conveniently I assumed that you're a regular reader here and that you are familiar with every little detail of my life. Of course the chances are you don't, or even you don't care. In case you don't know but do care, well, I've been playing cricket here in Japan, and after two unsuccessful attempts this time we got through to a final! Yey! The match was far easier than we thought, with the opponents (Indians, this time) being bundled out for a below par 70. Being true to our national team's performance of late, we almost fucked up chasing it but managed to reach the target with a couple of wickets to spare. Now, in couple of week's time we'll play the final, and gee don't we wanna win it.

Talking about cricket and Indians, didn't Sachin play one hell of an innings the other day? Man he almost pulled it, but lost the wicket at the most crucial time. Yet it was a true masterpiece, what an innings it was. The dude's been around for like forever and he's still 36! It's gonna be a long time before somebody break all his records.

Autumn is almost about to finish, or has it already? Anyway, too bad couldn't go see any Autumn Leaves this time around which is one of the most beautiful things you'd see here in Japan. I so love the wonderful colors, the feeling and everything. If you're in Paradise Island there are so many things you have that you can make us poor fellas envy you, but this is one where we get to score a point. Ain't that cool?

Anyway, fellas, what's been going on in the Lankanosphere of late? Couldn't even get to read many - this is a time where I could use one of those Lately in the Lankanosphere posts by the Drummer. Wait, has he done one already? Let me check...


  1. oooh yall won the semi final?!! congratulations man! (you seem to be doing better than our national team anyway! hehe)

    good luck with the finals, and as for the lovely autumn colours, it doesn't really make up for the hell that is winter does it? ;)

  2. Thanks dude.
    And yeah, have to agree with you - winter is fucken hell!

  3. Hey Sach, man... you took cricket to Japan? Next thing, the Japs would be eating curry - not sushi. ;)

    Congrats Sach, hope you win the finals too!

  4. Wijitha, nah man I didn't! LOL
    There are a lot of Sri Lankans, Indians, Pakistanis and Aussies living in Japan, so there are a few hard-ball leagues are being played. I'm friends with one of the Sri Lankan teams so joined 'em and been playing cricket lately. It's fun!

    Thanks for the wishes bro!
