    Pakistan batsmen failed to score last 21 runs which would have got them a victory in first test. Reason was they saw the OPs thread on pakpasion and said" hey runs against SL don't count,why bother making them". So technically this loss can be attributed to OP 🛅

    Runs against Sri Lanka on Asian pitches vs Herath should count, rest of their bowlers are still raw and our mediocre batters are making them out as the windies of the 80s.

    I stand by my original question, as follows:

    1. If you DO score runs v Sri Lanka, you might be a good batsman or a bad one. The runs don't count. BUT

    2. If you don't score runs v Sri Lanka, then you are either a rubbish batsman (Shan Masood) or a shell-shocked-wiped-out-mentally one (Babar Azam, Asad Shafiq).

    Sri Lanka, like Pakistan are going through a period of transition. They haven't fully recovered from the retirement of Sangakkara, Jayawardane and Dilshan. So it is harsh to brush aside a team which until recently was a top international side. In a years time I expect SL to be competitive again as I feel their batting especially looks fantastic with the young players like Karunaratne, Mendis and Dickwella looking great prospects. The advantage they have is that Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Mathews still have few years left in them.

    Pakistani fans are in an awkwardly uncomfortable position at the moment.

    They cannot criticize the Indian batsmen for scoring runs against a mediocre SL attack because the same SL side give Pakistan a proper hiding in the UAE Test series, and they cannot praise them either because it will go against what they have said previously.

    Hence, they are either praising the Indian batsmen with gritted teeth, or avoiding such threads completely.

    Sir, I really love reading your posts.

    One thing I find consistently in all you posts is that, there is bitter truth, albeit about your own team.

    Or just declare that the pitches were flat and therefore it does not count. Just like how it happened in AUS last time. As Mamoon got it spot on the hate for India over powers everything that comes in the way including logic.

    I won't lie to you, SL have been below par in ODI's and T20's but in Test matches as of recent they've been able to compete with top teams. I wouldn't call them minnows in this case.

    No minnow team can have W/L of 1.1 when you take a duration of roughly 2 decades.
    18 years is a huge sample size. Australia were the best team in the world 18 years ago but that doesn't mean that they are the best team in the world now.

    What is SL's W/L ratio in the last 3-4 years?

    That's better than i expected. I guess Sri Lanka continuously getting hammered by India over the past few years diluted my memories a bit.

    But i'm also wondering that which 4 matches did we lose in last 3 years? I can only remember 1 against Australia last year.

    How can you forget 2 losses which happened only few months back in SA?

    McCullum was a great captain but Williamson does not seem to have done too badly.


    2 possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are terrifying.

    No, it would be since 1995. They beat Pakistan in Pakistan in a series in 1995. That is HUGE deal. They came into their own after that!

    OP has a history of opening obnoxious threads and posts. Not sure why we need to bump it everytime and give him undue attention that he wants. He was the same guy who posted 9 out 10 top Asian current bowlers will be from Pakistan. His list featured likes of Zia ul Haq, Wahab Riaz, Ehsan Adil etc but no Ishant Sharma, Bumrah, Bhuvi, Fizz etc

    His bias is for all to see and lack of cricket knowledge is pretty evident.

    Shan Masood made that career-defining century in the Third Test in Sri Lanka two years ago.

    Yet look at these 2016-17 Domestic First Class records:

    SHAN MASOOD
    9 matches
    14 innings, 2 not outs
    1 century, 1 fifty, 12 innings below 50
    436 runs
    AVERAGE 36.33

    SALMAN BUTT
    10 matches
    16 innings, 1 not out
    4 centuries, 2 fifties, 10 innings below 50
    741 runs
    AVERAGE 49.40

    So Shan Masood dines out on a single Test century, made against a bunch of nobodies.

    And in an era of 45+ Test averages, he still gets picked when after 10 Tests his average is 23.10.
    So your thread should actually be " Does getting Shan Masood 's wicket in tests count "

    Herath was their last test great. None of the current bunch is world class. Even WI has interesting prospect.
