Half way mark

The five overs between 21 and 25 have gone 7, 3, 8, 2, 3. Which, despite those two good overs, is still averaging out to just a tick over 4 -- a function, largely, of disciplined bowling a nice tight off cordon, with point, cover and mid off all well inside the ring, denying singles in any of those areas. India basically playing the game of choking the Lankan batting, and letting the batsmen frustrate themselves -- there is so far neither inordinate seam or undue turn to really attack with, so it is the fielders now applying the pressure, the bowlers sticking to the basics. The first half of this innings, you've got to believe, has gone to the Indians -- be interesting to see if KS can, having got set, motor along here on, and if MJ can for once translate talent into runs

  • how u rank KS in current SL line-up??
    their best bat??looks to me from his body language and his writings he can be effective leader.
    MJ goes through long lean patches and someone who always bit risky when batting.
