    And now Taylor's almost run out without facing a ball! What the **** is going on out there?

    Lankans slipped McCullum a tenner before the game to run the rest of his side out?

    Wow, SL commentator is surprised that Williamson's batting "as high" as number 5.

    To be fair to him, though, Williamson has slid down the order quite frequently lately.

    I don't understand how Perera takes wickets. He bowls 130km medium pacers on a length with little movement. It delights me his Test record is so poor.

    And that's even better.

    Jeepers. This is calamitous.

    Christ, completely clueless. No wonder glorified part-timers like Astle are able to average 30 in the Plunket Shield.

    Jeevan Mendis is considered a batsman who bowls in Sri Lanka - or at best a "batting allrounder" - which I've always found interesting because after watching a fair bit of him (batting and bowling) I'm quite convinced he'd be coached and selected as a specialist bowler in Australia. He'd give our Test squad a shake even if he batted like Chris Martin, but he just sends down a few in comparison to the rest of the spin stocks in Sri Lanka, even domestically.

    Jeevan Mendis is exactly the bowler Steve Smith should aspire to be.

    Reasonable accuracy, decent wrong-un for tailenders/New Zealand top order and a skidding leg-break.

    I don't understand either TBH, don't think most do. Perhaps because batsmen try to go hard against him after getting choked by Malinga and Kulasekara upfront.

    Regarding his Test career, take a look at the records of our 'frontline' pacemen. Perera is right up there!

    Awesome finish by Milne. Too many slower ones from the Mumbai boy.

    Let's hope this won't be the theme for his career. So far, one year in, it has been.
