Amazing bowling from SL
Amazing bowling from SL
England 121/6 (30.5 ov)
couple good fours for board
Herath to Broad, OUT, full, swept and missed given out! and Broad goes straight for the referral. It doesn't look as if he's hit this...no hotspot in this series remember so there's no conclusive proof and Broad will have to go because hawk-eye has it hitting in line and going on to hit the stumps
So Cook got a jaffa from a seamer, Trott managed to miss a full toss, Pietersen got out being a mug to a seamer, Bell got a jaffa.
Yep, definetly can't play spin.
James Anderson will be bowling without shoelaces in the second innings.
Pietersen gets out to a seamer.
Can't play spin
All out for 193 , Ah england and cabinet as an aussie i naturally hate england
Dilshan gets cleaned up, odd his bat onto to stumps
Thirmanne gets an amazing ball, Pitches leg hits off. BEAUTY!
About time Swann produced - game on here now!!
All hail Herath :yao: Sri Lanka on top
Bets are now open until start of Day 3
Please start raining.
That is all.
To be fair, as **** as that was, the only thing separating the two teams is Bell getting out to a beauty on 52 and Jayawardene getting dropped at a similar score.
The fact that most of our top order got themselves out is very frustrating.
FTR, England will still remain number 1 with a 1-1 draw in the series; they'll be level on points with South Africa.
There's no weather Forecast on Cricinfo for Galle.
found it on some website , 30 - 40 % chance of precipitation for next 3 days.
Hopefully there's no rain and some quality cricket from both teams.
Also the rain may damp the pitch and stop it from breaking up.
The ridiculous situation I find myself in is I don't know how I want the pitch to play. If it's flat Sri Lanka will get more runs, if it isn't then it will be harder for England to bat on.
Oh and I'm disappointed Maharoof didn't make the team, **** we could have done with some pies from him today.
Maharoof, England gotta tackle the spin here. They are making Herath look more dangerous than Murlidharan here
^ In Sri Lanka or in England ?
hmm.......When was that, gotta dig up some stats now
2007/08 I believe. Cook, Strauss, Pietersen, Bell and Prior all played.
I remember when Kevin Pietersen used to slog sweep Warne and Murali (even switch hitting Murali for six) into the stands.
:troll: get to work
