    For Ishant, seven no balls in 15 overs is not a crime. He is striving for pace and trying to give himself every chance of getting the batsman out. The idea of Ojha and Mishra contributing 11 no balls in their overs is unacceptable though. How on earth can a spinner, with no run up or concern for speed, bowl so many no balls?
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Century for Kandamby and then out, India should be really dissapointed that both Ohja and Mishra have gone for 5 and a half an over.

    I hope some of these performances with the bat manage to push the first team into performing better.

    Mishra and Ojha came against best spin players of the country. Yeah, they are not in the first XI. But Sanga, Mathews and Dilshan won't be this attacking against spin. There's Chadimal left as well. He's a spinner keiller as well. But if Indian pacers cannot make an impression against this team, they are for some heavy punishment against the proper team

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Yeah, both Jayawardane's are possibly the best players of spin together with Samarweera in SL test XI. But Paranavithana, Dilshan, Sangakkara and Mathews are better known for their ability against fast bowlers.

    Personally, always felt Dilshan is a BIG threat to spinners. But I guess he is in the Sehwag/Lara mode against spinners (not in class or domination yet, perhaps, but in method) coz he is as likely to dominate and butcher them as he is to get out against them because of the way he goes after them...

    The similarities between Sehwag and Dilshan ends there with their methods. Sehwag is the best player of spin I've seen and Dilshan is not in that class playing spin. But on other hand, DIlshan is a better player against pacemen who hav eplenty of pace and bounce.

    Some suprising performances going on in the warm up game. India are 270/7 with Yuvraj on 115no and Ajantha Mendis picking up 4 wickets.
