before every Test

before every Test match/series the discussion is always about our bowlers, about Murali not being there, our fast bowlers not effective blah.blah, but it always has been our batting that has let us down and brought about defeats whether at home or abroad.It was the same story at home, against England/Australia and away in England,Pakistan and South Africa.Even the home series vs Pakistan was won because of the oppositions mistakes.Cannot remember when Sangakkara last scored something substantial in the 1st innings of a Test match.

@Sulaimaan i think we won

@Sulaimaan i think we won that Pakistan test series because of the umpires poor decisions ..and it back fire for us in this test match for not using DRS .. SL deserve to loose

Holy... I hope we don't lose

Holy... I hope we don't lose this!

I agree with Sulaimaan. Batting is the reason for most of our losses.

Lead

shd restrict NZL for less than 200, 150+ will be a tricky chase

:D) with respect to Sanga,

:D) with respect to Sanga, most of his recent test centuries have come 'later' in the series, in 2nd or 3rd test matches. Almost like he just makes sure he wudn't be dropped for the next series.
Para looks hopeless(and clueless) in the openning overs. And that's definitely not a positive for a guy who is nearing 30yrs.

A good openner should either be aggressive or have really good DEFENCE. Wat made Atapattu a succesful openner was NOT his aggression, but his SOLID DEFENCE. Current SL openners except Dilshan, (2 Tharangas) have NO aggresion, NO defence!
(too early to judge Karunaratne, he has a decent average of 45 in f/c cricket)
