A first look at Mahela's Sri Lankans in the tri series.

Once again they'll be looking for their stalwarts like Murali, Jayasuriya, Sangakkara and the skipper himself to raise their game against the Indians who have one point in the bag after the abandonment against the host nation.
 
when does the match start? how many minutes after you post the answer will be great
 
5 hours and 56 minutes. I thought we'd start the discussion early for this big match :p
 
Thanks Saj. Hopefully no rain. I might be able to catch some of this match

lol .. good to know i'm not the only one bored ...
 
60-80% chance of rain. Very unlikely that we will see a full game in fact we will be lucky to even get that 20 overs maar dhaar.
 
whats the word on zaheer and rp's fitness ??

zaheer, rp, sree, ishant - suddenly india have a top quality pace attack.

that's what happens when u introduce new bowlers regularly and have a good fast bowler development system.

Both will most probably miss the whole tour. India will have to do with Ishant and Sree which is good in a way as Ishant will have a full series and Sreesanth is on a comeback trail.
 
RP, like Gul, has had surprisingly poor fitness for a guy that young.

Thats the problem with Indian pacers. The talent is there, training is right, technique is correct. However, our bowlers don't have the structure, stamina and fitness to perform consistently.

only resolution to that is to find more pace bowlers for back up cover when the top guys do go down ...

our own board has finally woken up and started to do that in the zim series.

we found 3 decent new pacers - sohail khan and wahab riaz .. both 140 kph hit the deck type pacers, and kamran hussein - pathan type swinging all-rounder.

if shoaib, aif and gul do go down again .. i'm confident that now we can bring in some decent replacements.
 
I think India is good on backup fast bolwers, so even 2 guys are down they still can play. Otherwise they always have Sir Agarkar (who nvr gets injured)

agarkar carries the same horrible affliction that sami does .. the curse of always being fit :( :D

As Ian Chappel once said about Pakistan fast bowling talent, "So they shake the magic tree and down came another fast bowler".

unfortunately sami has been guarding the magic tree and threatening to b1tch slap anyone who tries to shake it.

Our tree is being watered by Venkatesh Prasad and flowered by Agarkar, Balaji etc :p

3 hours to go
 
Just looked at the radar. A lot of rain coming this way from the north and west.
 
2nd match in a row rudi giving india the close calls (along with the pathan shocker) ... looks like he wants to keep his job ..

Hawkeye says not out...so good decision from Rudi so far

hawkeye don't mean jack .. it looked plumb.

When channel 9 commentators are saying that it was not out and straying down the leg side then how can you say it is plumb.

Whatever you say, I think Hawkeye and replays should be used in all cases if possible.
 
SL in for a hammering unless India collapse

pitch looks good for 300. sehwag and tendi have started off well, got to keep going now.
 
First Federer lost the Australian open, now it is Patriots losing in the superball, hopefully next is it going to Australia in the game of cricket.

tendu survives another good shout ..

yeah, can you imagine that? 3 good shouts he has survived.. :O

these Lankans, they sure can shout good...but to no avail, bcci has doctored the hawkeye to show any good shout against Tendi going over the stumps... :26:

remember what their first impression was - "that must have been out .. or an inside edge saved him"


hawkeye can't be used to judge umpires.

Those 3 decisions were not-out but you know what? First Heally uncle then Taylor and even M. Nicolaus were crying that Tendulkar got away with those 3 decisions.

But this hawkeye will be used as a standard in this match for both teams...Maybe sometimes the umpires might falter in their decision making.

I hope this entire syddney fiasco will improve the umpiring standards and ICC will come up with some standards to improve the same.
 
lol kashif u hate indian players don't u, ok question for u who is btr batsman
SAchin or salman butt

I am just saying that as long as it is consistent, there should not be any issues.

That's what they've been doing the whole series. I seriously think Taylor is programmed to say 'Oh that is close' for every shout. Mentioned it before too. :))

Umpire can judge better than the commentators in the box. Commies have the benefit of hawkeye after the fact.

Hawkeye should be used in future by tweaking it to be perfect

I hope all the umpires in the world satisfy your desires for the batsmen to be given out LBW when pakistani batsmen plays against OZs
 
16000th run ...almost a run out!
 
16000 runs by sachin...

body language is so different for this game - these 2 are looking relaxed and cheerful. After all that aggro, playing with SL must be like attending a day camp

what is this 5th over? India going all out and SL throwing no ball after noball. This is going to be the highest total ever

Yep watching the game live all the 3 shouts had hawkeye showing the ball missing the stumps.. :19:

Chill Dude. Take it easy! Just a game.

The continuous fire in your belly about injustice in the world is quite obviously noticeable. Save it for Bucknor time. :)

Because you never stop and go on and on like a broken tape....it gives a feeling that you have put anti-india blinders on and is only interested in spewing statements to show India in bad light.

This is not just my opinion but also of maney of the pper's.
 
Its been an excellent start by the openers, although one felt Tendi could have easily made another 20-30 runs. He does have a problem playing fast bowling, particularly the ball coming in
 
this guy gambhir is a cheetah, aint he? If supported, he could take a single to the slips/bowler!

That ball wasn't coming in far as I could see it. Probably straight, or even moving away a tiny bit. He slashed at it and it chopped back.
 
vaas starting his third spell in only the 16th over ..

interesting strategy .. maybe we should use shoaib like this.

Problem is he wants to play his shots, without wanting to take any chances.

In this dismissal, he made sure not to offer an open/cross face of the bat. With the ball going away from him at malinga's angle, it would take slight variation of pace from bowler/bounce from pitch to reproduce such edges, if you were to play it with an angled closed face of a straight bat away from the body.

ok, sopcast isnt that clear. tks
 
By the way, the 'fire or retire' boys are playing and for the moment they're both very retiring.
 
sanga doing a kamran impersonation ...

my god that was a bad drop ..

So here we go..First life for Gambhir...never learns
cant believe he is a specialist opener. jabs at the deliveries outside off. he commits himself to playing good length deliveries outside off.
 
yuvi should just go home .. evidently that's the only place where he can bat ..
 
Yuvi's poor form continues..He should go back home now ..damn..collapse started..

15 runs in last 6 overs and 3 wickets
 
I guess they will keep in line of "fire or retire", 190 guys, how much you say? pathetic against this pajama sri lankan side
