[Video] Kumar Sangakkara | 192 Vs Australia, Hobart 2007

Dealing in boundaries and steam rolling ahead it never looked like the Aussies could stop him.

The second new ball hardly rattled him in fact all the Aussie quick men were being belted to all parts. Ricky Ponting the Australian skipper was cornered tactically by Sanga's aggression towards the new ball and Malinga's resilience. The ball was too new for Mcgill to cop yet another pasting so the only suitable bowling change would have been Symonds or another part timer.

Sanga was looking beyond 200 and was surely planning to accelerate the scoring rate with Malinga getting his eye in and providing good support.

It looked very much like only an outside influence and not the opposition that could dismiss him and some times in life the worst possible thing that could happen, happens.
