Saying "if.." just does not make sense. If sanga was stumped by karthik then the other betsman would have batted differently and the bowlers would hv bowled differently after that. If a past event in time changes, then almost all the events that happen after that changes. If you say if sanga was stumped and other batsman got out just like it happened, its merely a Wish. saying "if..." is pointless!

4Tivid , you are correct , This is not a single win of Sanga , this is a collective effort , Sanga , unarguably the best batsman in modern cricket can change the games single-handedly , but for that the bowling and fielding departments should help equally . If Sanga can play till 40 ( surely he is fit enough ) , he would brake some of untouchable records

Experience also counts as sometimes the younger players tend to panic when the going gets tough.He timed the chase with a calm demeanour Well played Sanga .
