re guptil - I just worry that we might hurt his confidence if he keeps failing and keeps getting picked.
Hypothetically if Dilshan has to bat lower down who opens with Pirana? My first thought was Mathews but then he's been SLs best batsman against the moving ball in this series and it might be best to have him lower as insurance since SL have collapsed twice.

All this talk of declaring - we had just better bat - and take it a bit easier now we have lost 2 wickets.
Gutted. Stumped attempting a defensive shot? Did cricinfo get that right? Huge blow in terms of slowing the momentum for the Lankans.
Scenarios I'd be comfortable declaring on:
350-run lead at tea today.
300-run lead overnight.
250-run lead at lunch tomorrow.
Anything else and no. However we currently lead by 226 so I think a 350-run lead by tea or shortly after might be a realistic target and we could consider giving ourselves all day to bowl them out.
lol, I haven't seen a ball all day get home and bang, Williamson and Flynn go down. WTF.
