We powered through that last thread.

Hopefully by the end of this one we're getting close to that number 1 test ranking.

House rules still apply: no speaking of England unless they're losing.

my prediction for today - SL win if they bat second.

If they bat first, not sure.

Lol...
The Jaapies are in all kinds of strife in the first Test against New Zealand, so our no.1 ranking may be safe for a while yet (playing the Windies at home in May should shore up that position)
Let's hope no one else gets injured for Australia today, otherwise the plane tomorrow will be like a med evac

You forgot how much New Zealand suck

I think the prospect of taking the lead in a test got to them.

Dopherty AND Lyon are in the First XI, that's a very risky move, it'll either pay off handsomely (the Lankans struggle to get them away, don't hit many 4s/6s) or it'll be a complete arse-up and they get tonked around the ground.

Nice job by Warner, set up a decent start. Watson going well. Australia playing this nicely at the moment.

EDIT: Didn't take into account Australia's ability to shoot themselves in the foot.

I'm sorry but run outs are absolutely unacceptable at this level and have happened far too often recently. I think if a batsmen is run out he should lose his match fee or have it docked significantly. Same for no balls, esp a wicket taking no ball.

Dave Hussey has the chance to play match-saver again. 25 overs as opposed to the other night. He and Forrest are key, after them it's not good.

Haha I get that, but it's a rash run and a lack of discipline for professionals. Onus should be on the bowler to get you out.

You are now, they're into the tail. Looking at a score of 200 at the moment unless someone throws the bat and gets lucky.

If SL had someone better than Malinga they'd be a bit better off, he's been smashed around again today.

I don't care if he bowls good yorkers, going for 7+ an over is ridiculous.

SL have thrown this one away here, very sad. It's all over now.

Very confusing, only needed 4.5 an over and they've played some stupid shots - Dilshan, Sangakarra. Terrible.

No dubz, it has been good bowling for a change. Well maybe not from Lee's wickets. It turns out the blokes you mentioned both fell to Lee

McKay is awesome when he's firing. He seems to be a bit too inconsistent though.

Maybe we've just been spoilt with the likes of McGrath & Warne & expect too much now?

Brett Lee averages 22 in ODI somehow. I never remember him being miserly at all, maybe it's just because he always grabs a few wickets?

Its not really confusing - thats exactly how they went out and won every other game against the aussies.

By attacking.

No it was terrible batting. Even when they were 6 or 7 down they could've walked it but that muppet spooned Lee to mid-on (why do batsmen always manage to pick out the fielder? If he'd hit it in the air it'd have dropped safe) and that opened up the tail.

SL lost this match, Australia didn't win it. Australia were totally undeserving.
