Such a big occasion - the Test will be in honour of Tony Greig, it's Hussey's last game and this will be the last time many of our older guys (Dilshan, Mahela, Herath, Sam) will be playing a Test in Australia. There have been murmurs that this could be Dilshan's final Test too! I really hope they make it last all five days!

disappointing for Dimuth but very positive move from Mahela to move up and face the new ball.Need a big 1st innnings score and then drag the match to the 5th day.

Not sure about the team selections though, Randiv might have been a better option seeing how Lyon got some turn so early.

Thirimanne HAS to look for

Thirimanne HAS to look for singles and rotate the strike, he s mounting unnecessary pressure on Mahela.

so disappointing

so disappointing, that could have been a real chance to get a hundred in Australia early in his career but anyway a good innings from Thirimanne. Also a good example of how Aussies take all the half chances that come their way.

But this score although an improvement from MCG is far from a good one on this track.Prasad gone as well now, we really need our tail to support Chandimal. Mathews really threw away his wicket as well and I dont see how he should hold his place ahead of the like of Thirimanne when Sanga comes back.
