Dilshan

When we needed to go for the kill, Dilshan opted to bring himself on with Welagedara from the other end. Yes, Welagedara was getting some reverse swing, but don't know why he didn't keep Randiv or Herath on at the other end.

Haddin Gone

Randiv has the last laugh!!!! Haddin and Hussey were looking dangerous. Now we need to get the tail out quickly.

236/8 This is pretty good, getting the Aussies out so cheaply, the toss doesn't matter now.

Ok, I thought they would have one over to bat out, but I guess not.

Pitch

I think it's going to be a low scoring match. Looking at the pitch I hope our guys won't be deceived by their score. Australia might still be well in the game with the pitch getting harder to bat on as the game progresses.

It'll be interesting to see how much turn Lyon will be able to extract and how their fast bowlers will fair on this track.

But if Dilshan attacks from the start and we get 200 quickly and the middle order bats normally we can get a lead of about 150 on day 2.
