Kumar Sangakkara: Very slowly. It was a pretty good game, it was important that we finish off strongly. We thought they we shouldn't be complacent. That's what I have been doing for quite a long time, it's a routine. I am about 37 now, the joints get creaky and you become slow. But when everything is going well, things look bright. It's hard to say, sometimes things just fall in place. No matter how hard you try to pin-point it, it is difficult. I don't really know what that one things is, but whatever it is, it is working for me. I think as long as we are positive, as long as we enjoy ourselves, we can do it. We have had a lot of injuries, but the real key for us is that we enjoy our cricket.
