    Yeah, Ojha is largely bowling pies but he's getting some real turn and bounce when he bowls it in the right areas. Murali could really rip through if he bowls well IMO.

    Want to see Murali bat...
    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

    Herath and Malinga get their maiden half centuries .

    Everbody seems to make their maiden centuries and half centuries against India.

    Reckon Herath would ton up here if they gave him enough time before declaring. Personally would just keep batting as I can only see the pitch getting worse and they're not going to win the game with only 500 odd runs, but they'll more than likely declare soon.

    One of these two to score a 100 and take over from Jerome Taylor as the worst batsmen to score a test match 100?

    I have to say, I really don't rate Ojha as a Test bowler at all; not even as a prospect TBH. He might prove me wrong in the future but I definitely don't think he's up to it now. If they don't want to play Mishra they should play Chawla or Kartik.

    I definitely rate Herath ahead of Taylor as a batsman. He has eleven First Class fifties and looks like he actually knows how to pace an innings. Decent player of spin too. If Malinga scores one I'll agree though.

    Refer to the previous India vs Sri Lanka thread for my comments. They haven't changed over the week.

    Yeah, Chawla, Karthik or Ashwin the next best choices after Mishra.

    Herath is someway better than Taylor as a batsman. Malinga may be, but he's out. Worst to score a 100 IMO is Saqlain.

    That's not really true, but it would be interesting to see which country does give away the most maiden centuries and half centuries.

    Hilfenhaus made one just the other day against Pakistan.

    I'm a bit surprised that Sri Lanka declared at tea. The long session will be a long one and if another 50 runs were scored they could have been useful. It would have been good for Herath if he made a ton too.

    Still with the awesome run rate, this game isn't as far behind as it could have been.
