My attempt was to do some crowd sourcing to answer the question compared to running an NLP engine on the commentary text for the above analysis!
Batting competence can be gauged by looking at the number of balls faced, chances given, how they got out, bowlers faced, condition of the ball (new) etc..... Hope the question is clear now!
The question was to see who showed the most competent batting in order to handle the conditions in the first test. The runs scored is not always an indication of success in test cricket especially for a team like sri lanka who are on a transition phase and thrown to the deep end in ENG. I see loads of comments in these forums from people who have not watched the game when it comes to Test matches...... and commenting by looking at the score card.....
Don't be surprised if England will reach 450.
Pretty pathetic bowling from our pacers except Pradeep. He is the only one looked like to get a wicket. Even Herath not good enough. In New Zealand how many wickets he took?. Inclusion of Siriwardana is not a problem but the one who removed is the problem.

mili is getting some wickets , but feels like dropping your best bowler from the last game was a mistake by the team management
This Foolish VAUGHAN has forgetton how Srilankans beat them Comprehensively On their own soil earlier. this fool is always trying to find faults with others to cover up his smelly mouth. when this idiot was leading the team this retard's arrogant team always played like a school cricket team and was beaten by all the teams. this retard has forgetton this English team was given a thrash by Srilankan team in the world cup in Australia. so i suggest this foolish retard must go thorough their past records before criticizing other teams. so mountains are not going to come down when the dogs like this fool Barks.
great players never critisize others.. its just the mediocre ones who do it to get some attention... "one sided", nice words... You won't hear tendulkar or sangakkara or anyone of that calibre be such a loudmouth...
Could you please enlighten me. Who is A.Sasheendran? I tried to look in cricinfo. There is nothing.
