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.
'You will look very silly said Mr Salteena with a dry laugh.
Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'
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 sport, we need our losers right there. Right in front of us. We need the schadenfreude, we need to see they are hurt, we need to know what they think went wrong. Because we already know what went wrong. We need their version of it so we can feel superior, or smug, or whatever feeling it is we need to get us through another pointless week in our lives.
