    Will be interesting to see what they do with the line up for the next game. Not sure if there is 11 fit players.

    Tillakaratne Dilshan
    Dimuth Karunaratne
    Tharanga Paranavitana
    Mahela Jayawardene (c)
    Thilan Samaraweera
    Angelo Mathews
    Dinesh Chandimal (wk)
    Suraj Randiv
    Shaminda Eranga
    Rangana Herath
    Nuwan Pradeep

    I presume Prasad injuried as well. I don't think he has ever played two Tests in a row in his whole career.

    BTW Mendis isn't injured he has taken 15 wickets this month in OD domestic competition. He just out favour from the Test team behind Herath and Randiv. He will probably play in the ODI tour with Dananjaya and Herath rested. Though the 3rd mystery spinner is also bowling well, Tharindu Kaushal (12 wickets @ 10).

    68 overs has to be one of the lowest combined batting efforts in a Test of recent times surely?

    I would imagine Bangladesh may have just about beaten it somewhere and maybe one of those matches when India toured New Zealand (100 played 120 type games). Seriously awful.

    Can't see how, for the life of me, anyone can seriously think Maxwell's little offspun pies are anything above a fill in at test level.

    He either plays because he's one of the best six bats (,,,) or not at all.

    Yep, Maxwell a great allrounder replacement for Watto....1 century from 9 times past fifty and 1.5 wkts per match in FC cricket

    Although he has a demanding case for selection with 90 runs @ 22.50 in FC cricket this season

    Not sure if it's been mentioned elsewhere but I just saw that after this latest Test Clarke has now hit 900 points on the ICC ratings, only the seventh Australian batsman ever to do so.

    Tendulkar's highest ever rating - 898.

    Clarke > Tendulkar. Like anyone didn't already know that anyway, obvs.

    Drop Lyon and play Maxwell + 4 quicks

    Siddle is supposedly our best bowler

    Starc has taken 14 wickets in his last 2 tests

    Johnson has just destroyed SL's tour

    Bird looks quality

    Lyon is irrelevant so let's see whether Maxwell can be a stop gap (doubt it btw) for a few overs and bat a bit

    If we ever have a full complement of quicks to choose from, then it would be madness to pick Lyon so lets prepare for the future

    Easy

    I'm not really SL can count in this chat anyway. I mean, 3 people didn't finish their innings. that's kinda important in a lowest-overs-ever thing
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Better than stealing Chris Connolly's material.
