spinner experts: how hard would it be for Tastle to gain 2-5kph and still retain some control? As we were all going on about yesterday he's just a tad too lobby atm.
To bowl quicker through the air and still get the amount of spin both through the air and off the pitch he gets currently, he'd have to become a better bowler.
Matthews is harvesting the strike and we need to put a stop to this.
Should be more difficult for him to do that vs the new ball though
Moreover, as a counter point, I certainly can't recall a bowler as outright crap as Suranga Lakmal being successful in Australia either. There's no point selecting poor man's versions of what your opposition can supply; that's basically just accepting your inferiority and conceding defeat. They'd be far better off backing the quality players they do have and hoping they can adapt to adapt to the conditions. You can't out-Australia Australia.
please let us win. just roll over and die already SL. h8 u.
this will be the day we lose an entire hour to light deadset.
Great innings from Mathews, but geez, what a road.
Fantastic perseverance from our bowlers.
Let's bring it home after tea.
Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

Sri Lanka only needs six runs an over from here.
