    Great thing about SL playing no tests this year is that it removed the threat of Jayawardene beating Kallis' streak of a century in 17 straight calendar years
    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

    it's funny cricketers don't seem to be treated like demigods in Pakistan like they are in India
    Ok back in the good old days, Imran, Miandad, Wasim, Waqar were the biggest celebrities.
    This decade Pakistan sadly haven't had the greatest of cricketers and that left Afridi. He is the closest thing to a demi god in Pakistan which is quite unfair because the likes of Younis, Misbah, Ajmal are 100 times the player that Afridi is and deserve far more.

    this is frustrating for pakistan.....SL's ninth wicket causing trouble for Pakistan just like in the ODIs
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Ok we need the 2 wickets now. Pakistan are going to be chasing on the 5th day against Herath, need to be mindful of that.

    This is how I look at it.
    T20 cricket is far more popular, makes much more money and is here to stay. Fans like those on CW are a minority.
    Is T20 going to win new fans for cricket? No.
    I have long accepted that test cricket is a niche sport and is never going to have mass popularity like football or even T20 cricket. Money however is extremely important to sustain test cricket and to keep it going which is why it is extremely important to make best use of the tiny proportion of test cricket fans from all around the world. Test cricket will have to look for alternative means of revenue and minimise reliance on ticket sales at the ground. This test match is being played on an empty ground literally. Internet, smart phones, tablets, smart TVs are the future, Test cricket will have to use internet to distribute and reach out to the fans and make money out of it. I am now sitting in one corner and watching this game illegally because there isn't a legal way to watch this game for me. Test cricket will have to find a way to reach out to fans like you and me from different parts of the world and offer us live cricket through internet, and use that as a revenue stream.
    I know this is a very complex topic and to go further into this would be beyond the scope of this thread.
    Good post thanks for that. Although Test cricket is still popular in Australia and England. 92k on the opening day at the MCG and a sold out Ashes series in England confirm that. I knew it was bad but thought Test cricket still rated fairly well on TV in the subcontinent but your post suggests otherwise, which is a shame.
    You know it makes sense.

    Junaid Khan to Eranga, no run, Erange plays the best pull shot I have ever seen. Literally starts high on top before cutting the ball straight into the ground. His prowess with the bat just stupifies me

    Mainly because they're not very good.

    Pakistan bowling attack is of top notch. Herath is the key for Lankans.
