    Just when I was going to post about Raina displaying good temperament for Test cricket, he gets out with a rash shot. Excellent debut still.

    *Edit*: Nvm, he mistimed the shot.

    Raina even in t20 and ODI cricket is very good on flattish and slow wickets. His problems come when the wicket has bounce or Swing or even too much turn.

    And there it is.

    Wonder how many bowlers on debut have conceded 100 runs to a single batsmen? I'd Ask Steve but he picks the ******** questions so he doesn't have to work too hard to write his article. "Durr Steeev hao many centuries in tests does sahin tendlkar have nao?"

    Nice to see Sachin get his double hundred but really this pitch is a disgrace to test cricket. Really hard to make a case for tests with this kind of dreck being served up. Give me the IPL any day compared to this test.

    What was the point of this Test? To give everybody a century and boost their averages?

    i am probably being stupid here but maybe the wicket has always been like this and nobody noticed it because murali ran through sides anyway?

    Low slow borefest.

    Why did not the groundsmen left a green track? It would have tested the batting skills more of the batsmen.

    If games can be called off on day 1 for being a dangerous pitch, we should give the discretion to the match referee to call the game off on day 1 for boring pitch.

    Ban SSC from test crciket!!

    Everybody here saw this coming. If they left the pitch covered with grass, at least would have geiven some lateral movement for the seamers. This SSC pitch is dead now. It only needs a funeral to be rested in peace. It needs to be dug up and replaced, and bring back the glory of the fast bouncy SSC pitch which was regarded as one of the best result wickets in SL.
