    I rarely follow test matches from the subcontinent that England arent involved in.

    And... after these couple of days of this test, can you really blame me?

    Who exactly is enjoying this? Is this really entertainment?

    Sri Lanka Cricket and Colombo should be fined heavily for producing such a flat, bore of a wicket.

    Test cricket will naturally struggle if even a die hard test fan like myself is bored senseless with these mundane matches.

    Such a shame.

    Watching your first match being played at the SSC, I see.

    True, I never bother to watch tests played at the SSC. Was the same in Galle but after the Tsunami the pitch has been much more favourable to bowlers. Hopefully the P.Sara Oval stays true to its reputation for the next match.

    Yes, I can blame you. First test was over in less than 4 days (when you take into account one day was washed out).

    Wow...just wow..How did Indian bowling become so dreadful??

    I can understand that this is a flat pitch
    I can understand Sri Lankan batsmen perform well at home
    I can understand that Zaheer and Sreesanth are injured...

    But 640/4?? Thats just terrible bowling..
    640 all out or 640/8 or 9 and those reasons I listed above could have been used as excuses.
    But 640/4 is just beyond terrible..no matter how flat the pitch is...I am confident that even Bangladesh with Shakib firing would have managed to grab a few more wickets..

    Sehwag the key (amazing how I keep saying that each time India play a test match these days and people question his match winning ability)

    But they aren't the best side. South Africa, England, and Sri Lanka are clearly better, as they will over-take them within the next year.

    I'm enjoying it, but that's because us here in the States are STARVED DRY for cricket, especially test cricket.

    WTH. Sehwag's gone. Is there any point in carrying on with the match anymore?!
