Another test against the number one team and lets face it, this is a herculean effort just to compete! However, SL doesnt need to do a lot to compete, just hold on to catches (is this seriously that hard) and get 300 to stay in the game. It becomes awfully hard to do anything when you drop catches in the first hour or you bat and are 4 down in the first morning.

We need a batter to make a century for a start! When was the last time visiting teams have made hundreds and we haven't, for crying out aloud Zim made 2 to our none despite the result. It is not enough for Tharanga and Mathews to make fifties and give it away. That you expect from the younger players but one of the senior batters has to anchor the innings with a big hundred. The bowling is - well we need to bring Herath in to the game which in turn means we need to win the toss!

From all reports, SSC will bat well so the plan is the same. Win the toss and bat first AND made useful runs and stay in the game. I am afraid if we lose the toss, we are up against it with the powerful Indian batting.
