Australia made a big mistake bringing in jon holland somebody like adam zampa would have been great in these spinning conditions, he would spin the ball and would be a massive weapon on day 3 and 4 in a test match in Sri Lanka where the pitch really starts to crumble up
The 3rd test will be challenging because the SSC doesn't spin as much as galle or kandy, it is known for its friendly batting conditions offering something for the fast bowlers but it all depends on the pitch on the day
Not convinced which direction Sri Lanka cricket is going at this stage, England outplayed Sri Lanka in the tests and totally dominated. The only positive is that at least we are giving the younger generation a chance to shine.
Finally some cricket for sri lanka after the world cup but also these next few test matches are the last time we would se sangakara play so I have to watch :)
with sanga and mahela gone they would be the main players in the middle order and this would give them huge responsibility unlike before and as for the bowling sachi and ranga as spinners and as for the fast bowlers lakmal/chameera and malinga will do the trick with dili/mathews being the 5th...
