    The problem is not about test cricket its about the way teams played it.SL is one of the boring team nowadays that's why their matches are horrible to watch.Recently concluded SA-SL odi series too was a yawnfest so its not about LOI or test its the way how games has to be played.Back then even in flat decks i would have spend some time watching sanga and mahela bat for hours and murali bowls because all they were intriguing but now their is nothing eyecandy

    That's not a new thing. Once we start playing in conditions which suit us we start thinking ourselves as world beaters but always brought down to earth once we go abroad. I saw the same overhyping when we were playing back to back series in India. Some fans thought we are becoming a world class bowling unit.

    Probably the first unbiased opinion from an Indian fan and I couldn't agree more.

    I still think SL are an average test bowling side in 'home' conditions but below average with the bat. Nonetheless very impressive to put 600 up against any opposition.

    Production quality of Sony is very good, they are not showing ad after every over like Star Sports. Very professional, clean and showing some picturesque views in between overs and Galle is a beautiful place. When we play at home it is going to be pain to watch as Star sports is our home broadcaster.

    boring match, complete walkover.

    A lot of matches with India outside India tend to be pretty boring these days save for a game in Australia where they were about to press the gas to chase a big score.

    no one said its wrong .. well done to him for the 100 but it was not a 'special' effort neither he won the match on his own like his fans portray.

    I hope India scores quickly till lunch and declares, which might set a target of around 600. India should also consider the rain interruption in match and try to finish this game by tomorrow itself. Overnight declaration would be better decision IMO.

    Disappointing stuff from Ashwin. It's still a flat pitch, but Ashwin is not doing anything. Just bowling like a machine.

    The last time we met, should've been a win. It was a harakiri from our batting.

    The gulf between these 2 teams is huge, save for rain India should take this series 3-0 even if SL roll out typical Colombo highways.

    I spent more time on cricinfo than watching test cricket. And here I am, a cricket expert. I would not have been one if I actually watched any of the matches, for I will would fall asleep within 30 minutes. Watching live scorecard on cricinfo is more entertaining than test cricket, you can at least see various stats

    South Africa winning in Australia is similar to India winning in Srilanka! Australia in fact did better than South Africa beating India at least in 1 test match (this is comparable to India winning odd test matches in Australia). The obstacle of "conditions" in test matches will go away probably when neutral teams start playing in a neutral venue (something like Australia vs. SA in India, India vs. Pakistan in England, etc). That is how ODI/T20 somewhat became neutralized at least to some extent!

    South Africa and Australia have also suffered embarrassing defeats in India. Also India has been competitive in some overseas series (would have won some series if not for some bad luck or umpire biases!) That too such bad luck occurred when the team had best players and was on verge of victory. This happened against best opponents and not necessarily against weaker teams! On the other hand visiting teams in India who won have not suffered such bad luck! (You can go through the history) In spite of all these, Australia, England and South Africa have one just 1 series probably in India in last 10-20 years! Hence so much criticism for India is uncalled for!

    Also flat pitches doesn't give the visiting team more chance, in fact it denies! Helpful conditions gives more chances for upsets. If you have observed, teams have beaten India with good spin attacks with that element of surprise! Similarly we can beat them if we are offered with helpful conditions (this doesn't hold good always, we may lose badly also like whitewashes! This holds good even for visiting teams, they are likely to be whitewashed in spinning conditions! But here we are talking about chance of winning test matches/series and not the margin of defeat/draw!)
