Gonna be a high scoring draw

Barring a pakistani collapse,this match will end up being a draw.Doesn't look as we have the bowlers to take 20 wickets on this placid track.God knows why Mahela persists with Randiv??The guy isn't a spinner,he is a right arm medium bowler...

Why did Nuwan Pradeep has

Why Nuwan Pradeep has given Test Cap? He can't hit the seam straight. Still bowling like softball. It is disrespectful for the cap.

With Nuwan

With Nuwan Kulasekara in the bowling line-up,SL's attack looks so much better.Randiv too has improved, Hafeez's wicket in the 1st innings was a beauty.
@Gangster with time Pradeep will improve if he is given enough chances.SL needs someone with pace which he definitely has.For this match though he is in place of Welegedara.

My point was Pradeep is not

My point was Pradeep is not ready for Test Status. Test matches not there for gain experience. Countries like Aus/ Eng.. you need work hard to earn test cap & it is pinnacle for players. His hair style or sling action made him famous. Just check his poor record. I am over SL celebrity mania.

Hope pradeep doesnt loose

Hope pradeep doesnt loose pace when he learns hw to swing/seam like wela and maharoof did. his speeds r impressive hitting constant 140+, but yeh there isnt much swing or seam.
