Hope

Hope this isnt the wrong decision, the same pitch is being used from Tuesday and the pitch might get slower.Australia are playing two spinners and the SL batsmen will have to target them early on in their spells.

Yeah! My thoughts exactly! I

Yeah! My thoughts exactly! I was hoping we batted first and put on the runs. This is a poor decision.

re toss

Even my wife commented that this was a wrong decision. Warner now realises by being slow last time he put
bowlers on top.

well

well so far it looks as though it has worked,though the pitch looks slightly slower than the other night.Disappointing effort from Malinga again and he will have to take a major share of the blame if SL dont manage to pull this off.

McKay/Lee partnership really

McKay/Lee partnership really undid a lot of the hard work, no?

Tharanga

Whether Sri Lanka win or lose, don't you think Tharanga's place in the side should be secure by now? I can't believe we continue to have a different set of rules for this guy. He has two bad games and he's out of the side, whereas other batsmen have prolonged failures and continue to hold onto their places. Tharanga has 12 hundreds and 23 fifties - too good to be dropped after just two bad performances!

Wrong Hilal, Tharanga cost

Wrong Hilal, Tharanga cost Kapu's wicket. He can't find the gap no brain at all. Tharanga can't win the game tonight. You watch!

Haha! That's funny! Blaming

Haha! That's funny! Blaming Tharanga for Kapu's wicket? Why didn't Kapu find the gap then? He could only manage to edge it to the keeper. Tharanga has scored 50 runs and kept our hopes alive while wickets have tumbled.

Did you see Hilal? Tharanga

Did you see Hilal? Tharanga not the middle order batsman. He is poor with his shot selection & working singles. Even Thirimanne had to go for shots while Tharanga was bog down.
