Pietersen and Swann square series for England

Phew.. I still love test cricket..  Tremendous effort from the English team to square the series against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka... In the end, the 1-1 result in this 2 match test series would be fitting enough.. but would have loved to see another match to decide the winner.... but for the IPL I think this series would have got one more match..

Some amazing performances in this series:

Man of the Series Mahela Jayawardene - A star player.. showed his class with vital runs in all the innings this series..
Man of the Match Kevin Pietersen - Another star player showed his amazing power and controversial switch hit play in the second test match
England's spin king Graeme Swann - Showed his class in the Sri Lankan soil... with match winning performance in the second test and a good performance in the first one too
Sri Lankan spinner Rangana Herath - Becoming a very good player with each match he plays.. picked up 5 wickets in both the innings in the second match and did well in the first one too.
