Dilshan should reconsider his approach to Test cricket. He carelessly put Sri Lanka on the back foot from the second ball of the innings!

Kettleborough

Kettleborough's having a forgettable match here. Misses a no-ball call, but luckily Paranavitana reviews!

@Sanki8OH8: You're right. When he was promoted open the batting, he had shed the reputation of being a daredevil and was consistent. Nowadays, consistency is not important to him, because he views himself as someone like Sehwag.

Dilshan

@Hilal, good point. He has to know the difference between the image and what's needed at that particular time. I've seen him play really good positive Test innings. You have to be attacking, but it doesn't mean wildly attacking... sometimes Dilshan just forgets what his role is. He has to control his aggression, specially on pitches like these.

PJ is out. This is a big joke. Won't even make 100 unless they attack now no point in defending from this point.

Hussey got off the mark with a 4 and he was aggressive but not loose like Dilshan. Our guys are useless.....

Gone! It'd been better if he attacked more, got 50 runs and got out earlier.

As usual low order will score

As usual low order will score some runs. Should we just drop Mahela, Dilshan and Sangakkara all together? Look at the runs the three have made in the last 10 tests. Better get the youngsters ready and show these uncles the door :)
