    Sri Lanka Thread

    The 30 man squad got named and the only real surprises was the random chinaman spinner Lakshan Sandakan finding a spot and Ramith Rambuckwella (famous for trying to open a airplane cabin door at 35,000 feet) taking the place of Chatarunga de Silva. This England series is showcasing our spin...

    ***Official*** Sri Lanka in England and Ireland 2014

    This tour will be starting very soon with the Ireland ODIs starting in about a week. A big tour for Sri Lanka, a chance for them to take advantage of what could be a rather weak English side with Sangakarra in the form of his life and the fast bowlers showing a bit of promise earlier in the...

    Turf vs Hard Wicket batting

    Having played almost all of my cricket on hard wickets I got called up into the second 11 for my club who play on turf pitches. Just wandering, as a batsman are there any adjustments I need to make or things I should keep in mind to make the transition successful?

    **Official** Sri Lanka Domestic Season 2013/14

    After encouragement from PEWS, I've decided to begin a SL domestic thread in the hope of generating a bit of discussion, even if it's just me and one or two others. I personally have only just begun to follow SL domestic cricket, so there are a lot of names to learn and the like, but At this...

    Fawad Ahmed

    Thoughts on this leg-spinner everyone? Looks the goods to me, gets a fair bit of spin, has good control, nice flight and his high arm gives him some extra bounce. He also has a well disguised googly and top-spinner. Should he get into the Australian side for the home ashes series? He'l be...
