The Fatal Finger of Fate
This piece of commentary by one of the Cricinfo sleuths covering the Australia Vs Sri Lanka match cracked me up big time:
Sangakkara played a delicious knock, counterattacking in the end with some breathtaking shots, before the fatal finger of fate intervened. Malinga indulged in some hit and giggle before Australia wrapped up the series win.
Fatal finger of fate? I did not know fate used fingers to make its interventions. Heck, I did not know fate had fingers in the first place! It took a cruel intervention of fate to enlighten me. And am I glad or what?
Details of which finger fate exactly used are yet to come by.
