    Kumara is released from the squad, Dimuth has finger fracture, so both of them are out. Awaiting on DDS.

    May be to drop Dilruwan as well and get Kumara back if he is fit

    Sir Vivian Richards - master or myth?

    Last match Sidhu played Murlai was in that 1998 run fest series. So yes, well before the 15 degree or steroid era.

    i'd take that there is no arguments left so here comes a rancid bait.

    KP was done and dusted after those two innings by Murali and Malinga. Murali at his height of prowess was 50-50 with Shewag (Sidhu played during the time Murali didn't have the doosra), but after 2007 circa, Murali had no chance against Shewag. Warne in his entire career never had a chance...

    Jadeja is not yet an "elite" spinner. Let's wait till he finishes the career.

    Shewag knew that his team would wallop anyone at home. Still he got "bored" and got out. :naughty: And yes, Murali was a great fieldsmen. Easily the best among elite spinners.

    Almost all cricketers rate him with Sidhu as the best ever player of spin to walk on the planet earth. And Yes, it IS a big thing.

    Roshen Silva is back, and that will give an indication how the pitch is going to play. It is going to spin square, and Roshen is an expert on playing those tracks.

    Issue is we can say the exact same about Virender Shewag, who incidentally averages very similar to Viv, probably a SR 10 - 15% higher. But Shewag is termed as rash, complacent and throwing it away instead of "bored".

    This was the downfall of those bowlers. People who didn't try to bounce him off, rather examined his foot work, like Hadlee and Kapil were way more successful.

    You can add Shewag to that. Viv to fast bowlers were equal to Shewag to Spinners.

    Viv took on the bowlers who were boasting, who had egos as big as houses. Lillee, Thompson, Hogg, Pascoe, Botham and Malcolm were some of the examples. The ones who didn't get their ego in the way of tactics like Hadlee, Kapil, Chandra and Imran were much more successful than above bowlers...
