Sri Lanka v India, 3rd Test, Pallekele, 12-16 August, 2017

Jadeja out suspended for India after chucking a ball at Pushpakumara. Still, it's hard to see anything but another thrashing for the Lankans.

Disappointing return from that start. Good to see Sandakan playing. Would definitely have him above Dilruwan or Gunaratne as a spinner.

Lanka might restrict the Bannies to under 600 for a change.

Should get them for under 500.  Here's hoping, anyway.

Tharanga is right up there with Snoozer Latham as the worst Test opener ever.

They're almost back to 80s levels Sri Lanka. Desperately disappointing team.

Apparently* it is the first time an Indian has scored a 100 before lunch in Tests.

Engineer also went very close, in 1966.

Latham averages close to 40... what about all the recent English and Yarpie pretenders struggling to manage half of that? scratch

My views on Latham are well documented. He is a minnow basher of the highest order. He averages 32 against the non-minnows and 93 v BD and Zim. Against the top 4 sides his averages are: Ind - 28, Eng - 36, SAf - 12, Aus - 29.

He and Tharanga are twins in this regard.

Three test series at home this winter. Knees are already going weak in anticipation of the contest.

Lanka survived for less than 12 days of this alleged 15 day series. Rolling Eyes

Well done to the Bannies - clear World no. 1s.
