Isn't that pretty sad when someone brings the race as an issue. I agree with stromy. People with that kind of attitude should be kept away from this site. I don't understand what is the admin of this site is doing?

Lots of memories but the lasting one for me was the second innings of the first test in 1985 when Mendis and Aravinda opened the batting chasing 120 odd in 11 overs. The moment was Aravinda hooking Kapil Dev's first ball for six - who does that?

Dasun for me but no idea what has happened to this guy - he would be handy for the next WC in England.

I think its time to look past Dimuth and look at other options. its a shame as this guy really looked like the real thing but has struggled to be consistent.

Happy to hear the fresh thinking but can I make a comment that Anji needs to work out his sweeps. He just doesn't look convincing with his sweeps and reverse sweeps.

Probe away as long as this is not another smoke screen for more looting but more importantly, why don't we probe who looted the money at SLC? Surely any probe in to cricket in SL has to start with who is responsible for the massive losses AND the state of the game currently in SLC where we have been unable to beat Bangaldesh and Zimbabwe in limited overs cricket at home and BOTH competed against us at home in test for the first time in history.

But hey why bother with minor issues like this when we can spend a whole lot of time and money trying to work out how we lost the 2011 WC final to a start studded Indian line up. Said this before, the changes were forced due to the injury to Anji and if anyone bothers to check, I called for the same for changes before the game. Also the dew made the spinners ineffective under lights. There is also a small measure of Sewag, Sachin, Yuvraj, Dhoni, Gambir, Zaheer and Harbajan - if anyone was throwing the game surely it would be the Indians!

The irony of it all - Thilanga calling for a truce! The reason there is a fight is due to the total loss of confidence in SLC administration. Sad state of affairs but unless the admin is fixed, we can look forward to more of the same....damage either way!

Can we please start probing the authorities and politicians related to SLC first. All these morons have a lot to say but are totally unaccountable for the millions looted and the disgraceful decisions in relation to administration at SLC.

I am happy to state that even if there was something suspicious about the 2011 WC final (which I don't for one moment believe there was), if will dwaft the crimes committed by politicians and administrators to SLC. These guy should not have the opportunity now to start pointing fingers at the players who have seated for the nation over a number of years.

Tissa48 find a kids blog mate - this is the game we love.

What a show by SL and I honestly thought this was new low but it's thankfully a new high! What a day in cricket can make. Full credit to Asela and Niroshan and also Dilruwan for two small critical knocks with the bat.

Yes its a win and yes its a record but the reality is this is major concern. Firstly, Zim are under ground as far as test cricket goes. Secondly, the expectation was to bat once and make Zim chase the game. The fact that had their noses ahead till probably the last session of the test match is a serious worry for us.
