Here is our final chance to save the series and some pride. If we lose this or draw this Test we lose the series to Australia. That means we lost ODI series and Test series and only won T20 series. Lions must win this game!

Date & Time - Sep 16-20, 2011 (10:00 local | 04:30 GMT | 00:30 EDT | 23:30 CDT | 21:30 PDT)

we are nothing to lose we

we are nothing to lose we already 1 down in the series and we dont want to draw this match. if we want to win we should get 20 wicket without mendis our 4 bowlers (herath,randiv,lakmal and welage..)cant take 20 wickets so we should take risk to play extra bowler.then top order should score runs.im sure this time our top order will score big

Rain Rain !

I don't think much play will be possible during this match as the N/E monsoon seems to have started.

great stuff

I like this team ! Wow dilshan batting at 5 and my two openers in. This is the future of Sri Lanka cricket and full marks to the selectors for having the guts to do it and Dilshan for being man enough to agree to bat 5 for the sake of the team.

Eranga in is also great stuff.
