    I hope we continue the positive approach and play with intent. We need to score runs faster if we want to give ourselves a chance to win.

    300 should be the minimum for today. However I have a feeling we will go at a snail's pace in the morning session again just to try to preserve wickets. I would say we'd make about 62/2 in the first session.

    I am watching all 90 overs today (data willing).

    Days like today graduate batsman to next level.

    Decent track with no demons. Just pressure.

    Batsmen must score at a good rate today if we're to force a result. Aim for 3.5 RPO, get to 550+ and try to bowl SRL out cheaply in the 3rd innings which will be very tough with only 3 bowlers.

    But I am saying again. It is the bowlers who have let us down in both matches so far. How can you let this SL lineup put on 400+ twice here.

    Sri Lanka have a good batting line up which will improve the more test cricket they play. They will always find spinners with variety. Also Chandimal seems like a good captain, captaincy doesn't seem to have affected his batting.If they can find a couple of good pacers to replace Lakmal and Pradeep, they will have a good test team which can compete in most conditions.

    I like Chandimal's captaincy here. Misbah mastered this in-out field strategy in the UAE and it worked wonders especially when Pakistan racked up 400+ scores in the 1st innings. Chandimal is following the same Misbah route. He knows Pakistan wants to press on but he's not allowing free boundaries by having men on the boundaries despite being 400 runs ahead. Ian Chappell would ridicule this captaincy but this is perfect.

    Nope. They've just been favored by the dull UAE conditions. Winning the toss has also helped them because in UAE you can just bat first and pile up massive runs in the first innings.


    You gotta work until your idols become your rivals.

    Being positive versus Lakmal and Pradeep is a way of putting pressure on SL.

    If Inzi hasn’t understood by now hopefully he saw that list where Shan topped with average of 23.

    They are making the exact same mistake here that they made in Abu Dhabi! You can NOT let spinners settle into a rhythm on these surfaces!! You can NOT let them bowl maidens . . they will get you out sooner rather than later . . whenever Paksitan has played Herath well, they have attacked him . . granted,w e dont have the ability of younis and Misbah . . but thats the only way they will dominate these spinners . . if they just let them bowl, they will all fall like dominos soon!

    Chandimal looks a good captain so far.
