Pakistan Vs Sri Lanka 3rd Test Day 1

Any predictions? :ajmal jk

3 factors for Sri Lanka
1.sangkkagara
2.fast bowling
3.resurgance of mahela and thilan

3 for pak
1.fast bowling
2.lower batting order
3.fielding


Your factors guys?
 
Looks like we need a toss-winning coach as well
 
Unfair to Rehman. Bowled really well last time.
 
Interesting that SL are maintaining their 2 spinner, 2 pacer attack but we have changed it. Surely they know their pitch better than us?
 
Garden-like pitch. Cheema will miss out.

They are also playing 3-1 to pacers
 
Rehman must be thinking he deserved a place on his batting alone! :))
 
Pradeep out = play SL pacers 3 feet out of the pitch
 
Nice place this. Pallekelle. Mountains amidst clouds.
 
Play out of the crease, Hafeez.

He's allowing it to swing too much.
 
Pleasantly surprised from Hafeez. Playing the movement very well here so far.
 
a lot of swing, mainly because of overcast conditions. should ease up when the sun comes out and dries the pitch.
 
I think pitch has lot of moisture which helps bowler to swing the ball
 
Good stuff from Taufeeq.

How many times has Taufeeq punished a drop and made a big hundred...
 
Perera appealing like crazy ..:facepalm

If you looked at the appeal and the reaction to the decision, you'd think the ball pitched middle, and was taking the middle of the middle stump out
 
SL dropping Taufeeq like no tomorrow
 
SL paying in runs for bringing the keeper up
 
Runs coming easily. That's good but time is the main factor here, need to face off the new ball fully.

Risk vs reward. I don't think Taufeeq would have edged if the keeper wasn't up. He would have advanced a few paces and been more comfortable.

Yep. Risk vs reward.
 
Hafeez is doing good, Taufeeq got really lucky. Will he ever learn?
 
weird. Taufeeq was the aggressor last time, Hafeez grinding. Now the reverse.
 
MashaAllah Hafeez has started well. I want Pakistan to score around 350 so we can enough time to get a result.
 
Uff Taufeeq's looking edgy as he's not able to step down the pitch.
 
Another one through the slips. Taufeeq must score a 300 now.
 
We criticise the umpires when they make bad decisions but we should also appreciate the good decisions they make.
