Bhajji ripping it out there. Can already see Murali getting to 800.
Any guess at what score Sri Lanka will finish this innings on? I'm going to go with 471.
Should get 500 at least from here and then as a cricket fan i hope Murali turns it on and reaches his 800.
Wow, this bowling attack really does look awful.

Doesn't count! Came against a minnow attack.
There is something I dont understand about India-Sri Lanka series.
India seems to own Sri Lanka at home
Sri Lanka seems to own India at home
Now if India and Sri Lanka were not neighbours and did not have similar conditions, I could understand this...but its not like there is a huge difference in conditions and weather and climate and all that..
So why does this matter so much??
When India toured Sri Lanka in 08, I really expected India to win the series... lost..The Dravids, Tendulkars and Sehwags could not prevent a series defeat although Sehwag played well.
Then Sri Lanka toured India last year and judging from Jayawardene and Sangakkara's form, and add Herath, Murali and Mendis to that, I thought finally Sri Lanka would win a series..
Not only did Sehwag do what he does with bowlers, Jayawardene and Sangakkara were inexplicably disappointing. And they were suppoesd to be disappointing.
This time, with India as the number 1 team in the world, I expected them to be favourites, and they were embarrassingly 291 all out against a board side and clearly their bowlers were ineffective against the second string Sri Lankan batsmen.
Inexplicable phenomena this.
"This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers." - Jarrod Kimber
