352/4 now. Morgan scored a century.

Looks like the wicket has also become easier to bat on or the spinners could not maintain the same pressure as the new ball bowlers?

I can't believe how green

I can't believe how green that wicket is. We never see anything like it in Sri Lanka.

Nothing that I have seen so

Nothing that I have seen so far from Randiv suggests that he should be in our Test team. He has been below par even against West Indies in Tests last year when we played them.

@Merlin: You can't be serious? He has done well at the first class level.

Is there video of this

Is there video of this match?

Good reply from Dilshan and P'vitana after being asked to follow on. But Mahela Jayawardene looks like he has lost all ability to graft in conditions where he has struggled. A good batsman like him should know his limitations and play accordingly. I hope Chandimal and Samarey will bat well.
