    Also disappointed your post didn't bag out Kallis in it Burgey. Thought that was a lock.

    Nah my comment was based on this innings. If you chose to take it another way then that's your fault you son of a bitch.

    itbt, I have seen a bit of Herath over the past couple of years, and it's an opinion I've held all throughout it. Takes wickets but I just don't know how.

    Gets ****loads with the arm ball. Batsmen get beaten by the quicker ball or play for turn, get plumb LBW.

    Herath is cool by me. So much wine I didn't think of bagging Kallis.

    Which is no excuse mind you.

    Like this opening combo for SL tbh. Be awesome if this test went down to the last session. I'm exclusively tipping a tie here.

    Yeah, in subcontinent the seam catches and can grip; combined with a good straighter one he is attacking both sides of the bat.

    Here in Australia, where offies are best served bowling a la Lyon with more overspin, he's really only attacking the pad to right handers.

    Herath also gets a lot of wickets due to the fact that the rest of the SL bowlers are ****e. In Colombo against England, he got 6 wickets in the innings, but he took about 40 overs to get his second wicket.

    Seriously thinking Wade is the worst first-choice Aussie keeper since Greg Dyer (who was in any event a lot better than Wade).
