@Stormy agree with you , three changes unnecessary . thiri should have played in this SSC pitch .. and i think it's bit risky to go with only one front line fast bowler , unless mathews is fit to ball 20+ overs per innings .

OMG this guy can act too??? What can't he do?!?!

Kumar Sangakkara is an absolute LEGEND, and not just a cricketing one, which makes him stand out from all other cricketers.

@Stormy No one has to say anything about the venue change. And why should they? It's his last Test match, it's played in his home country and for being such an amazing player for the country, he more than deserves it. It's not like SLC told another country to change the venue to one of his preferred ones!

I don't think anyone has a problem with it.

Sucker for punishment SLC are! All overseas coaches of the recent past have either run after a term (Ford), eloped to the enemy camp(Farbrace), left disgrunted after term (Bayliss). The choice coaches dont want to come anywhere near SL other than on a holiday or are two expensive.

We had a local coach who served under all these coaches and: has no where to run, and is not complaining, and is one of us and now - has a series win in England in both formats under his belt but we still want to search for the overseas coach with the majic wand!

Before anyone has any digs can I state that the great man deserves this. He has been a wonderful servant to the game and nation and deserves to finish his career at his beloved SSC.

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.
