I smell a dead fish in this whole issue. Bottom line is he should be playing but he is not and there are stories - unless its like a Trott situation this smells of a dead fish.

I havent seen the wicket so not qualified to comment but I think NO. Firstly the batting is too brittle with two youngsters at 6 and 7. Yes Thiri and Chandi have dissappointed but I would have played both, if not atleast one of them.

Yes its time to retire but no not before the WC in Aus. Tests keep you going and its hard to come in cold and just play one dayers so I would have prefered to see him playing test till the WC and then retire - may be in NZ. Yes not ideal but that would be my call.

One might think 305/5 is a good position but that depends on what happens in the first hour t'row. SA with the new ball and debutant and a dodgy lower order, SL are still at a risk of not reaching the all important 400 to put presure on the opposition. SA would be the happier team I reckon knowing another wicket could result in a quick finish. Once again Mathews delivers and its official now - Sanga will get peppered short for the rest of his career (much like Ponting and Kallis).

I know there has been lots of talk on Mahela but he has been consistent in the past year and is in the top 10 run getters worldwide and got important hundreds in the UAE and Bangladesh and important runs in England. But more importantly he delivered today, when others failed and even more importantly, is still there and is the only reason we are still in the game.

Not sure what the wicket is like but I would imagine this was a 450 batting first wicket that's still a long way. I am hoping the 3 spinners mean it could be a 375 wicket and there's work to be done to get there.

@UppercuT i can't remember that video but actually arjuna once said coach take a large part of team selection process(yes others should take that responsibility as well )

anyways please show me when did i said marvan's coaching is "not a success " in that conversation ? what i have said in that conversation is we cannot say marvan is a "success or not" by just looking at one tour , even if SL team fails in this test it will be unfair to say he's a flop as a coach . lol i dunno why i have to explain this to you over and over again

:D)))) @SLCricket, while u r hesitant to give credit of bit of SL success to Marvan((conversation we had earlier abt Head Coach), u are pretty QUICK to pile the RESPONSIBILITY on Marvan! aren't u?

the team is selected by:

Captain
Coach
Selector(on tour/with the team)
Manager

So Marvan only has 1/4th of say in the selections....

What happened to this Thiri? Player of the series in the Asia Cup with two centuries. Played so well in the limited chances he got in the T20 World Cup as well. Just a few months later he can hardly score :(

Hopefully it's just a lean patch. Come back strong, Thiri! Good luck!
