    Declaration has happened; West Indies have an hour to bat out. Gayle has an absolutely shocking record against Sri Lanka and in particularly Vaas, so thatís one battle to watch intently.

    Looking forward to seeing the other Sri Lankan left armer, guys on here rate him and apparently his a bit lively.

    No, maybe second dig. How slow is your stream?

    80-83mph in his first over - hardly rapid, but sharp enough. What happened to Waledegera, he looked impressive against England.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Very slow it seems.

    Sri Lanka should be very disappointed with their effort. Really should have pushed harder with a declaration in mind. Good pitch, poor attack. Should've scored a fair bit quicker.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I didnt think anyone could have had worse numbers against Vaas than Flemming
    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    Was it just tortuous batting? Cricinfo seems to suggest that the slow pitch had something to do with making strokemaking and runmaking hard. I think Murali is going to find it hard on another slow surface, something similar to the surfaces he bowled on in the recent sereis against England, or so it seems. Would not be surprised if a draw is the final result.

    Sri Lanka could have batted much faster IMO. On day one in the last two sessions they made a good amount of runs. The pitch hasn't changed too much since then.

    Great to see Sarwan back. Gives the West Indies batting a touch of real class. No reason considering his ability against spin and the nature of the surface for him not to cash in tomorrow.

    True but he's a post 2000 WI batsman. Not like Lara or Chanderpaul.

    TBF to Sri Lanka I don't think our top order batted too slow. Jayawardene could have kicked on a bit more, but that not the way he bats. A s/r of 58 isn't that bad really. The guys that slowed it down were two lower order bats in Prasanna and Vaas. But really for those two it is either slow runs or no runs. It is the way both have batted in the last 18 months and with some success. You can't really expect lower order batsmen to score that fast. Reckon people are just used to the Australians scoring at 4 an over. Scoring at 3 an over is ok, not great but ok.
