Australia probably won't make the world final at Lord's. India v NZ.

Joe Denly doing his thing in the Big Bash - 26 (31) 1x4

just watched the Aus/Ind highlights. Insane courage by Pujara, probably one of the greatest sub-60 innings ever. Usual Aussie suspects heads falling off under pressure (Gary and Hazlewood). Pant is a right squirt but great knock.

Mark Wood flogs through 30 wicketless overs in the Galle heat, gets picked ahead of Stone and Woakes to do it again four days later despite Broad being rotated out.

Anderson 14 overs, 3-15
The rest 48 overs, 0-158

Think Jimmy needs a bit more support there lads

Feel like England have lost this already, because we almost always collapse when we've got even a moderate total to chase in the first innings.

what's odd was I didn't think Anderson bowled GREAT, two of those wickets were total brainfarts.

That's it Joe, give Wood an eighth over in punishing humidity at the end of the day.

Had to laugh when I saw Anderson had got through 19 overs today. Never change Joe.

Given that SL are now 300/2 against the rest of the bowlers it’s hard to see what other option Root had. Picking a stronger bowling lineup might have helped, I guess.

I mean I'm sure there's a lot of psychological and climate and tactical factors going into this and Jack Leach and Dom Bess are good blokes and they've played well in the past but to me a professional, international-level spin bowler, somebody whose job is to bowl spin and is paid for bowling spin and spends probably 60-70 hours a week playing and practicising and training and bowling spin, and who is selected as one of the absolute best spin bowlers in a nation of 60 million people, should be able to get the ball to bounce in more or less the right place and not keep dropping short all the bloody time.

Anderson's figures are helped by SL's strategy, as it was with Broad to just dead bat him and score off the rest.

They have enough runs to win the game already, I reckon.

Curran was a shit selection for this series imo

Especially when England are leaving the field out to let the guy on 60* get singles off the last ball of the over to farm the strike

... and get out, fair enough then.

Jimmy now 19 fc wickets away from busting into this club.

At 34 and counting, James Anderson appears to be on his last legs. Unless the England stalwart redefines the fitness level of an ageing fast bowler, Herath Mudiyanselage Rangana Keerthi Bandara Herath could very well be the final product of an exotic breed.

Is it possible to drop a player in the middle of a test. I'd already be wanting Sibley down the order at this rate.

SL against England spinners 195/0 off 64 overs

England against SL spinners 0/2 off 4 overs

Good to see the England openers have been doing their homework eh

Excellent. Bairstow has always struck me as the sort of player that has the capability and temperament to bat for two days.

And how useful Cook would have been. Two of the best players of spin in England history.
