well in fairness to dilshan,

well in fairness to dilshan, his opposite number graeme smith has similar performance in this series, but someone always steps up in SA. but difference between dilshan and smith is dilshan threw it away, while smith got out to good deliveries., but da numbers r pretty similar for two captains.

lets be fair

Lets be fair to Dilshan, I think Dilshan and co. had assessed the pitch correctly.'IF' there was anything to be taken from this pitch, it should have been on the 1st hr of the 1st day.The pitch curator had this to say "It should start doing a bit by day seven".All our batsmen have to do is bat well(hopefully) on this easy pitch, both wickets so far have been gifted.
The problem here is the pitch, all the talk about SA wanting to win is foolish.I think they didnt want to take a chance, better draw than lose.

194/6, looks like we will

194/6, looks like we will lose be an innings. All the players have gotten big headed after winning one test match. The only thing to do now is for Chandimal to play aggressivley.
