    Another disappointing bowling and fielding performance; big test now for the batting line up. Kula already sending some big inswingers

    "I never wanted a farewell match because if you're not good enough to be in the 15-man squad, there's nowhere in the world you can play in the first XI," the 36-year-old Samaraweera said. "I didn't want to be selfish and deprive a youngster of his place by requesting to play in a farewell Test."

    Mendis looks pathetic
    Diuretics are used to look good at TV shows

    I played for 20 years in the Lankan team, I did not have any problems as a Tamil - Muralidaran

    An Erenga/Malinga new ball pair could be devestating. Too bad we'll never see it

    I stopped watching after the 3rd drop of the morning. Abul and Shahadat actually bowled very, feel for Gazi as well coukd have easily gotten 6+ wicket haul if the fielders weren't scared of the red ball.

    It'll be very interesting to see how close to the follow on Target Bangladesh get to and to see if the new financial incentives for securing a draw has an effect.

    Cricman can you tell us a little more about the draw financial incentives?

    Not having Shakib could cost them, Sri Lankas run rate most likely would have been lower if he was playing so with 3 days left, reaching the follow on target is vital.

    Bangladesh Cricket News: BCB to give bonuses for draws | ESPN Cricinfo

    Bangladesh have been given financial incentive to draw a Test match. According to the BCB, the team will get an extra Tk 100,000 ($1250) per drawn Test on top of the Tk 150,000 ($1875) they will receive as Test match fee, which has also increased from Tk 100,000 ($1250).

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Utter tripe from Riyad. With Ashraful, and Mominul looking good and Anamul's potential and reserve players like Marshal Ayub looking for an opportunity, given that Tamim, Shakib, and Naeem will likely comeback for the future Riyad should be looking over his shoulder, his place in the team is vulnerable in my opinion. There's no place for a bits and pieces cricketer batting at 7 or 8.

    Look's like the Ashraful enigma continues, though we should take into consideration that Sri Lanka are his bunny team, he has scored 5 centuries (out of his total of 6) against them.
