So this is what Greg Chappell's 'Vision of Excellence' came down to.
India out of the World Cup. Two innings and not one score in excess of 200.
Sri Lanka crushed an Indian side miserably low on confidence. The two crafty veterans, Chaminda Vaas and Muttiah Muralitharan, ripped the heart out of a brittle batting order.
Pretty numb right now.
Just hope all the ads stop. No Sachin selling glucose biscuits. No Dravid riding mobikes. No Zaheer and razor blades.
