Pitch

No problem. Yeah I expected more from Randiv. I think they really attacked him in both innings. Mendis would have been priceless on this track. Sharp turn and bounce...

Well from the moment Herath got Watson out, they've been talking about the pitch. I like result pitches, but it'd have been nice if we had a result pitch that could have taken the game until the 5th day. This one would have taken a game until the 4th day max :D

Bowler-friendly tracks are good but once the bounce becomes inconsistent, then its an issue. Waranweera must be under a lot of pressure after Sanga's dismissal.

Hopes

Now I dare to dream of a win in this match!!!!!!!! I can not believe this. If Mathews can hold his end and pick a few singles here and there. We can go the distance.

One of the best centuries I've seen on such a very difficult wicket. Great stuff by Mahela!!

Now I jinxed it! Same fight in the first innings, we'd have won this.

So, 1-0 Australia. I hope we can turn this around quickly or another series loss is on the cards.

At least they fought !

Well the boys gave fight. It was impossible after the first innings display but that was about the best we could expect.

Now they need to take the positives out of this ( sorry for the jargon !) and forget it !

The Aussie bowling doesn't impress this hard core cynic. I don't think the off spinner will amount to much on a flat wicket.
