    I hope this Lakmal injury forces the selectors/Mathews to realise that you need at least 2 front-line seamers every game and you also need Matthews bowling more earlier in the innings. You can't expect someone like Lakmal to remain injury free when he gets bowled into the ground in 35 degree heat like that

    Very much doubt NZ would take him over Wagner tbh. Junaid's career is literally Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka and Sri Lanka. He's played 9/16 matches vs them and picked 40/56 vs them. Credit to him for doing well vs SL but he's got to play other teams more(and perform) to be rated higher. Wager's not exactly set the world on fire but he's played a variety of teams in different conditions so at least there's an indication as to how his career will shape up. With Junaid it is still all rather unknown. For the same reason I don't think England would take him over Finn or Plunkett either.

    I would agree except that his vs SL record is nothing to write home about. 32 avg with no 10 wkt haul after 12 tests. If anything he could complain that he doesn't get to play Eng/NZ/WI/Zim/Ban more. Although his record is definitely helped by never having played India.

    Playing much of your career against SL in the Sanga/Mahela/Samaraweera days as spinner couldn't have been easy as far as Ajmal is concerned

    Yes, it could be argued to be worse than bowling to India (especially since the retirement of the big three and Sehwag).

    so Pakistan bat first in overcast conditions
    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

    This phase makes you question why Prasad was ever left out in the first place.. 5-10ks faster than Eranga/Lakmal and looks like his control is much better too.

    Those eyes too..

    Cheer up smali. Ali is looking good, Younis will make runs and Misbah is still to come.
    All out 340.

    No, but he is a wicket-taker, and he fits well into this attack with two spinners and Matthews bowling a little bit too, we've actually picked a well balanced team of players who deserve to be there, wait, no, Tharanga is playing, almost though.

    Nuwan Pradeep has been holding Prasad back I'd say, was particularly unfair in England when Pradeep got the nod over him despite what happened in that warm-up game
