    Slam Hafeez when he doesn't do well.But atleast give him credit when due.

    He was awful against SA,and deserved all the crap coming his way.But he's been brilliant against SL so far.Whatever the reason may be,he's been in top form with both bat and bowl in these 3 matches and and not giving him credit when due is pretty silly.

    his doing well against SL doesn't detract from the fact that he is ****
    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

    He's not such a bad ODI player.

    The SL test squad has been announced, Prassanna J back in thank god and Senanayake also looking likely to make a test debut and bowl alongside Herath, which will be interesting. The fast bowling attack looks pretty ****ty as per usual and but we'll see. Both sides have unproven and inexperienced openers as well, big series for both pairs.

    Have a feeling they might go with Hafeez and Shehzad as openers in the test as they have shown good form in this series. Manzoor has been injured while Shan has been preety inconsistent this season for his side also if Azhar fails in the first test then we might see Sohaib getting drafted in to the test side.

    Azhar should be opening IMO. I've been saying it for ages. Given your struggle to find openers, the fact that you have a domestic opener with a reasonable technique and a decent Test record batting #3 just seems ridiculous; you've have lots of potentially good even if unproven middle order options for a while.

    Kaushal Silva in as an opener as Dilshan's potential replacement means there's a decent chance of Sri Lanka going into the Test with four good wicket keepers.

    Have to say, I don't get the thought process of how Sri Lanka pick their fast bowlers.

    Lol, pretty annoying as well, especially with Kusal Perera also in the background, I see Chandimal and Silva becoming specialist batsmen in the future but once Prasanna is gone who will be the one who keeps?

    Neither, they might be giving that random left armer some experience on an international tour for mentoring rather than playing him though

    Younis reluctance to bat one drop in recent times might the reason of Azhar being made to bat at 3. In an ideal world this should be our test line up

    Azhar
    Haffez/Shan/Khurram/Shehzad anyone
    Younis
    Misbah
    Fawad
    Asad/Haris/Sohaib/ Salahuddin etc
    Sarfraz/Adnan/Rizwan
    Rehman
    Ajmal
    Junaid
    Gul/Rahat/Irfan/Sadaf/Talha

    I don't see Asad having a very high ceiling an avg of 40 is probably the max he can achieve. I rate him higher then Azhar as a middle order bat but Azhar's advantage is he can open and could possibly the best opener we can get. I would like to see Haris in the test line up has a gun FC record possibly second to Fawad. Maqsood also could be a good addition especially since the test batting line up is so one paced Sohaib can shake things up.

    Was there any reason in particular that SL were favourites (1.81 vs 2.00) before the toss today?

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).
