I think the decision to bowl Kulasekara and take Mendis off backfired. Mendis and Murali together could have really applied the pressure. As it is, the match won't go to the 50th over.
Well played England though, to hang on. I saw 7-8 overs after coming home from dinner and thought their batsmen were really struggling out in the middle and thought they were dire. They did the important thing though. It is still not over. Makes this group interesting though.
