    If they'd have gone at 3 an over they'd only need 3 an over of course.

    The one thing that could work is if/when Mathews bats Sri Lanka tell him he's batting for a draw, then he'll probably decide to have a thrash at everything and score a quickfire 50/100.
    Worth considering is Sangakkara is batting well within himself ATM. If he fires up after lunch the run-rate won't be the biggest concern.

    Then there's the new ball.

    What would I do if I found a healthier version of myself?

    Still a big ask.

    I suppose you've got two approaches, you can bat positively and try for a steady 3.5 an over knowing you'll get some spikes when Starc bowls and cover things that way. Or you can try and just bat normally, getting it down to 6-8 an over off 15-20 and have a dart.

    Let's get real here. SL aren't winning, SL aren't attempting to win.

    So vital they aren't 4 down by lunch. Will make it bloody tough if they are.

    I predict a close finish here, could be an awesome last 2 sessions. Love test cricket like this.

    Am I the only one that thinks a Sri Lankan win is more likely than an Australian one?

    if Watson's a robot, why can't we clone him? We could do with two or three of him (the bowling version)
