Yeah, Sangakkara dropped him. To be fair, neither were easy chances, but that's the sort of thing you have to do if you only scored 150.

If Sri Lanka can take two quick wickets tomorrow there may be a game. Since I'm from Sweden so I just want a good game of cricket. Fell asleep 30 min into the game last night though after being very tired from the homecoming hockey.

Expensive drops, as it turns out. They could have had Australia 5/130 and probably bowled out for 250.

Unfortunately I missed Herath's great catch.

Cricket Australia's ban on Darren Leehman is an absolute joke. It shows that Cricket Australia is an authoritarian organisation.

Very strange as he has been called for chucking before and has actually been banned ! What Lehman says makes sense even if you if you don't think he is chucking. The action looks suspect to me.

As did I, but thankfully, Cricinfo have a picture:





Sri Lanka have really been crippled by injury. That's their third now, with just Prasad and the rest of the tail to come, the test will probably be over before the end of the day. They're effectively 7/69.

The real test for Australia will be the next Ashes Series. If we can get our bowling attack right we should be competitive. We don't need any more injuries to our bowlers.

What did he say?

Regarding our team, it seems we are like dead men walking.
3 out of the series and kula doubtful too. We'll have to fly in some replacements:

We have a ODI series after this too
