    Hey Aussie, just checking before Sehwag bats if the pitch is considered flat or not? Thanks in advance.

    Commentary in these matches have been awful. You would think that the amount of money these people make they'd hire at least someone who can speak English.

    Good to see Dilshan getting his century....

    Could it be a match-winning one?

    Oh dear....

    I hope it's not a match-changing one.

    Mathews gets his half-century. I have to admit, I'm not yet convinced that he's a number six batsman.

    It depends on Sehwag's innings.

    He's obviously weak against spin. Actually PJ is a better batsmen on Indian tracks than even Sanga / Paranavithana / Mathews. Mathews' importance will come when SL play in non-sub continental conditions. Apparently he plays pace very well.

    It will be flat for the medium pacers. Murali / Herath might pull something out of the hat against Sehwag though. Fit would not have been flat for Prasad / Fernando / Thushara though.

    Even all round record

    Sanga 653 @ 38.4
    PJ 372 @ 53.1

    The clear reason is PJ is a supremely gifted player when comes to playing spin.

    Now he gets out trying to hit Ojha out of the attack.

    The decision to keep Mishra out now seems to be one huge blooper. What were they thinking?
    "Talent is nothing without opportunity"
    "You're not remembered for aiming at the target, but hitting it"

    Twenty20 used to be boring.
