No surprises in Hobart

There were no surprises in Hobart in the second and final Test between Australia and Sri Lanka as Australia went on to win by 96 runs.

Kumar Sangakkara scored a superb 192 and gave hope to Sri Lanka for an unlikely victory but I think that in the end Australia were by far a better team and deserved to win the series. It was also sad to see that Sangakkara was wrongly given out because it would have been good to see where he would have taken his innings.

I think Brett Lee had a great series and he took eight wickets in the second Test. I still think that the new Australian bowling line up was not tested very much by Sri Lanka and I am keen to see what will happen in the next Test series against India.

The much talked about Muttiah Muralitharan's record attempt came to nothing as he only could get four wickets in the entire series but he now needs just four runs to pass Shane warne's 708 haul. Possibly the good news is that he will be able to do so before his home fans in the upcoming three match Test series against England.

The next Test series for Australia is going to be against India and I am looking foward to that one. On paper it should be competitive but many teams have come here and just looked ordinary and I hope India will not do that.
