    Looks like the match for SL now.
    He was always pretty good, it's just that his early Test career was dominated by ridiculously high-scoring SL-India and SL-Pakistan matches.

    So they'll have a couple of extra days before the next test. Long enough to phone up Ryder and Watling and get them on a plane?

    One positive for NZ would be that Franklin got a wicket. Now has taken 5 test wickets in 5 years.

    No disrespect to Sri Lanka, but this bowling effort has not been worthy of 100-9. Some of the worst batting I've seen.

    Always been ordinary in county cricket as well which is surprising considering he has all the tricks. He was bowling the carrom ball years before Mendis turned up and he seems to have decent control of the leggies and offies he occasionally bowls.

    The disappointing thing about this match is that the pitch is my definition of a perfect wicket.

    Good bounce, a little bit of swing, and a bit of turn. But a pitch where you can get yourself in and bat with confidence.

    We're not even going to see how it holds up on day 4.

    Oh well, let's hope Southee and Boult pick up a few wickets to bring their averages down to ground.

    Herath's the leading wicket taker this year so I guess he's improved massively. Has 40 odd at 20 in 7 Tests, that's impressive figures.

    How come NZ is so darn good at rugby and so darn ordinary at cricket?

    Southee hasn't taken the field.

    If he's out for a while I don't think I have any reason to watch cricket in the near future.

    That is what I mean, gone from average to gun all of a sudden, not just the one series/game so isn't a flash in the pan either.
