    Yes, pitch is very slow. A real borefest it would be.

    yeah well, yuvi is a ****, isn't he? I so wish Badri did better against RSA.. though I still think he did better than Yuvi would have done.

    This is the South Western monsoon season. But it's waning on Colombo, which is drier than Galle. But rain is always in the air. When you consider than Colombo receives 2350mm of annual rain fall, and Galle 2800mm, possibly the two wettest venues of international cricket being played. (Compare to 2100 in Kandy, 1600 in Dambulla and 1000 in Hambantota)

    Dambulla is used only for limited over matches and the stadiums in Hambantota and Kandy are still under construction. Anyway, the rain has significantly reduced in Colombo compared to last week.

    Why does it seem to an outsider the India don't take into account there first class system when selecting new players. Raina has looked good in the IPL that I've watched but there are others with better records, what be up with that and **** yo.

    SL change their whole bowling lineup.
    Never seen that before.
    And unfortunately for SL Yuvraj is injured.
    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

    Both Indian opening bowlers haven't bowled full enough during this opening period, espeically Sharma. As Mithun has shown on the odd occasion against Paranavitana if you keep the ball pitched up you'll trouble him with the little amount of late movement he's getting.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!
