    Samaraweera's back in the squad.

    Tillakaratne Dilshan (capt), Angelo Mathews (vice-capt), Tharanga Paranavitana, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Dinesh Chandimal, Kaushal Silva (wk), Lahiru Thirimanne, Dimuth Karunaratne, Chanaka Welegedara, Dilhara Fernando, Nuwan Pradeep, Suranga Lakmal, Thisara Perera, Ajantha Mendis, Rangana Herath, Thilan Samaraweera.

    what a piss poor looking squad




    once you get to the bowlers anyway
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    I know South Africa don't like actually winning a test series, but I find it hard how they will be able to not win this one.

    I look forward to seeing Lakmal take 5/40 to trigger an absurd series-levelling collapse.

    Good to see Fernando keeps getting picked, he's really earned it.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Got tickets for the 4th day of the Newlands Test, I'm just hoping the match lasts at least until day 4. Also going to the Paarl ODI, which should be fun.

    hopefully Sanga scores big a big series here and his place gets confirmed among the all time leading batsman.

    People selling SL short here apart from one crazy session they were by far the best sub continental side to tour England.

    Not really, Pakistan was the only one to win a test.

    This is going to be an ass rape. Will need some monumental effort from Sanga to at least be competitive. But on the positive side, both Mathews and Silva are very good players of pace. If these three cn stick it out for long periods, we might escape with three draws. But my prediction is 2-0 for SAF.

    SL fast men are slowly but surely improving. Fernando has been able to string some good performances at least in ODIs. Welegedara is slowly improving. Lakmal is getting better. Losing Prasad, who was mighty impressive on flat tracks and Eranga are a blow. Eranga, Prasad, Lakmal and Mendis would have been the bowling line up for SAF. Now we have to contempt with a slightly inferior Welegedara, Fernando, Lakmal combo. Senanayake has been cleared for his action. Should have walked in as the spinner.

    I wonder how badly we'll lose this. Innings defeat every game perhaps?

    Na, so much rain about the other 2 games were basic non events anyway and they never looked like they would win a game in England.

    This could be a gruesome series with SA gaining a long overdue series win.

    No pressure Sanga, just need at least one double hundred to secure us a draw.
    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
