Australia v Sri Lanka, 1st Test, Hobart, 3rd day

'SL unlucky with reviews' - Dilshan

Andrew Fernando in Hobart

December 16, 2012

Tillakaratne Dilshan put Sri Lanka's misadventure with DRS down to misfortune. The team has made poor use of the review system in the Hobart test, failing to overturn any decisions with their three reviews while choosing not to review a call that would have been changed in their favour. Sri Lanka do not have the review system available in most home matches, largely because of the board's financial woes.

The visitors had been unsuccessful in their only review while bowling in the first innings, before both Mahela Jayawardene and Angelo Mathews unsuccessfully challenged lbw decisions that were found to be hitting the top of the stumps. Rangana Herath was also given out lbw, but had inside edged the ball onto his pads, and was unable to review the decision because Sri Lanka's reviews had already been spent.

Late in the day, Nuwan Kulasekara trapped Ed Cowan in front with a ball that straightened off the seam, but despite having both reviews available, Sri Lanka opted not to refer the decision to the third umpire.

"Everyone thought that the ball hit the bat," he said. "There were two sounds and we were in two minds. Now we know from TV that the sound was the bat hitting pad, but that's how the game goes. The reviews didn't come our way unfortunately, but I think we were just unlucky."

Dilshan was bullish about Sri Lanka's prospects in the Test, even if victory seems to quickly be slipping from their grasp. Sri Lanka conceded a first innings lead of 114, and trail by 141 at the end of day three, with all ten Australian second innings wickets intact. Australia lost Ben Hilfenhaus to a side strain, which will also make Sri Lanka's task easier in the fourth innings, Dilshan believed.

"Still the wicket is very good and the only thing is it was a little bit up and down. We'll have to see what target Australia will set us. First thing in the morning if we can take a couple of wickets we can put the pressure back on Australia. That will be our main target in the first session tomorrow.

"If they are giving us a target they have to know that they have only two genuine bowlers with Shane Watson. The wicket is still not helpful for the spinners - it is still a really good wicket. If the target is gettable we should go for it and try to win the Test."

Angelo Mathews helped Dilshan put on 161 on day three - a record for Sri Lanka in Australia, for any wicket. Mathews' share of the partnership was 75, and Dilshan lauded his teammate's maturity, after the pair had injected fight into Sri Lanka's performance, after having slipped to 87 for 4 at the end of day two. 

"It's good to see youngsters put their hands up. Especially Angelo, because he is being groomed to be the next captain and with the help of the senior players, he is batting really well. That's important for Sri Lankan cricket that youngsters are performing. Dimuth Karunaratne coming into the side is another plus point for us. In a few years time, players like myself, Sanga and Mahela will retire, and it's time we gave the young cricketers a chance."

Dilshan was visibly jubilant when he reached his first ton in Australia en route to 147, and backed his teammates to also find form as the tour progresses. Neither Kumar Sangakkara nor Thilan Samaraweera could progress into double figures in the first innings, while Mahela Jayawardene only made 12.

"Good thing for us is that they know how to adjust quickly and they know how to bat here. I have nothing to teach them about batting - both Sanga and Mahela have passed 10,000 runs."

Posted by Sinhaya on (December 18, 2012, 16:15 GMT), Sanga, Mahela and Dilshan will soon be gone. They wont play even for more than one more year. We have Dinesh Chandimal, Dimuth Karunaratne, Bhanuka Rajapakse, Angelo Perera, Sachithra Senanayake, Roshan Jayatissa, Kaushal Janith all ready to takeover. Of course in the recent England India test series, unending umpiring howlers. If not for Dharmasena special, Alastair Cook would never fail in the Nagpur test. Nagpur test was just the tip of the iceberg. There were lot more howlers in the other 3 tests too.

@Narbavi, I also missed Sanath Jayasuriya, Marvan Atapattu too among greats who are hard to fill in. My Durban theory is spot on right. Have a close look at the South Africa 2nd innings and see the dismissal of De Villiers and Boucher. I dont want to waste my time as I have seen the match details many times. We played very well against Pakistan in Galle and Sanga was never helped by umpires in his 199. I dont care whether you disregard our achievement in Durban last year or our series win against Pakistan, but our wins will forever be registered.

Posted by Sinhaya on (December 18, 2012, 15:55 GMT)

@matchfixerpkn, yeah India drew test series in Australia after playing how many test matches? HAHAHAHA! We have barely played a dozen tests in Australia so stop gloating. We have players to fill slots of Sangakkara and Mahela and we are fine. You dont know when Sri Lanka defeated India in a test match? Of course we beat you all in the Galle test in 2010 July. India of course won all tests in history due to umpiring help. India needs the help of 13 men to win matches and not 11.

Posted by Jojygeorge on (December 18, 2012, 12:53 GMT)

Sinhaya mate, just checked up the cricinfo records, SL have won just 1 home series (against Pak this year) in the last 3 years......don't know why you keep boasting about your team! SL have done hardly anything of note in both home and away tests in the past few years!

Posted by on (December 18, 2012, 12:02 GMT)

Sinhaya, don't know when cricinfo updates the comments that i have posted, it has been a long time now since i have posted some....looks like they are going to soon close comments for this column......all i want to tell you is to remember the old saying "those who live in glass houses should not be throwing stones at others"!! I know you are waiting for everyone to post their comments before you give one final reply to everyone.....but at the end of the day you sound like a loser all the way and guess what your team SL lost today as well.....isn't that a lovely co-incidence? Hope that the scoreline in the test series against Aus does not end up as 3-0 thrashing!!

Posted by Ranveerrsingh on (December 18, 2012, 10:48 GMT)

Sinhaya, in your post on Dec 17,2012 at 14.21 pm GMT you ended with a concluding statement that "So we(SL) have done well in test matches"......this must be the joke of the year 2012!! Please tell me the ICC test rankings of the SL team for the last 18 months.....were they in the top 2?...NO!! were they in the top 4.....?NO!! Have they been in the top 5 at all in the last 12 months....NO!! So i accept your famous conclusion "So we have done well in test matches" HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Posted by Jojygeorge on (December 18, 2012, 10:41 GMT)

Mate Sinhaya, being an Aussie i suggest that you stop posting your comments on this column till the SL team wins something.....that will give you some bragging rights against the Indians!! Sorry to say this, but can't see the current SL team winning any of the test matches against Aus......better luck next time mate!!

Sinhaya..ya ya ..srilank rebuildng team...when they rebuild team sangakara,jayavardane wil be aroiund 60 year old :)

Posted by matchfixerpkn on (December 18, 2012, 9:34 GMT)

Sinhaya..srilanka still not won single test match in australia...:) now dnt give statistics .etc.. india already draw a series in asutralia ..

Posted by matchfixerpkn on (December 18, 2012, 9:31 GMT)

poor srilankan not ready to accept defeat ..dnt lie.. dnt knwo wehn srilank defeateed india in test match :) and lucky to defeat paksinta recently due to umpire help ...

Posted by Narbavi on (December 18, 2012, 6:51 GMT)

srilanka not playing with vaas and murali you will call it as rebuilding but india without dravid laxman ganguly and kumble you won't mention it at all, double standards!!

Posted by Narbavi on (December 18, 2012, 6:50 GMT)

@Sinhaya: Wrong again, if it wasn't for lack of DRS, pakistan would have won that series, come on everyone knows that and your durban theory is completely baseless, do u want me to remind u time and time again that we dominated the south africans completely in that test, why dont u check cricinfo again, how jealous you are that u refuse to appreciate our good work, no prob, it won't take anything away from us!!

Posted by Sinhaya on (December 18, 2012, 0:54 GMT)

@Narbavi, like I replied before, since mid 2001 till date, only Australia and Pakistan have beaten us in a test series at home. Australia beat us 3-0 in 2004 and 1-0 in 2011. Pakistan beat us 1-0 in 2006. All other home test series have been a win for Sri Lanka or draw. It was Aussies who last beat us in a test series at home in September 2011, 1-0. Yes Pakistan may have made it 1-1 if DRS was there, but if DRS was in place during India's tour of SA in 2010, we may well have seen a different result on the 29th December 2010. When we beat SA on the 29th December 2011, no umpiring howlers at all. Luckily DRS was there and Kallis was given out when earlier his caught appeal was turned down and we challenged it and got him out.

Posted by on (December 17, 2012, 22:36 GMT)

Sinhaya, How come when SL have lost Murali and Vaas they are rebuilding but when Dravid, Laxman and Kumble retire the Indian team is the same....could you please clarify. Looks like you have different definitions of rebuilding for different teams.....It would be interesting to see how SL rebuilds again once Sanga,Mahela and Dilshan retire in the 2 to 3 years, but that would not be rebuilding according to your logic....HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! SL benefitted from many umpiring howlers in the home series against Pak which SL won, the Pak fans can confirm this. I think you are dreaming when you say that when cricket is played by SL there are no umpiring howlers but when India plays there are many umpiring howlers!!

Posted by Ranveerrsingh on (December 17, 2012, 22:23 GMT)

Sinhaya, isn't drawing a home test as bad as a loss!! you state that you have lost Murali and Vaas ,what about the Indian team who have lost Dravid,Kumble,Laxman etc. About the Ind-NZ series i think you had your eyes shut which is why you could not differentiate between good and bad decisions. If the umpiring was so good in the SL-NZ series why could SL not win at home against NZ against side ranked no.8 in the world. SL cricket board are the first to come and lick the feet of BCCI officials so that the corrupt and bankrupt SL cricket board can make some money out of it. In that series with Pak that you played at home, there were numerous instances of umpiring howlers that enabled SL to win the series, please check the cricinfo records and columns to confirm this. If SRT would have made only 12000 runs with DRS then Murali would not have taken more than 400 test wickets without chucking!!

Posted by Narbavi on (December 17, 2012, 16:10 GMT)

@Sinhaya: The whole world knows u won because of lack of DRS against pakistan recently, and we lost a test series at home after 8 long years, tell me when was the last time u lost a test series at home?

Posted by Sinhaya on (December 17, 2012, 14:21 GMT)

@Ranveerrsingh, we have rarely lost test series at home. We have managed to at least draw home test series. Only Australia and Pakistan have managed to win a test series in our shores starting from 2002 till today. So this year we managed to draw all 3 home test series, understand? We lost Murali and Vaas who was instrumental in our test success, so we are still re building. We got our first test win in SA without Vaas and Murali last year if you recall and since that day, SA have never lost a test match at all. Also, SA have never lost an away test series since losing to us 2-0 in 2006. So we have done well in test matches.

Posted by Sinhaya on (December 17, 2012, 14:15 GMT)

@Balaji Kumar, if BCCI okays DRS wont it be beyond marvellous?? All criticism of BCCI will instantly end when BCCI okays DRS. Since BCCI is being high handed in stopping DRS used when India plays, lot of suspicions linger on how BCCI lobbies to run the game of cricket as per its wish.

Posted by Sinhaya on (December 17, 2012, 14:06 GMT)

@Ranveerrsingh, haha forgot that we won 1-0 against Pakistan in June this year! Of course there were 14 decisions against NZ in the recent 2 test series. We never benefitted from umpiring howlers at all. Actually NZ should have won the 2nd test in Bengaluru and made it 1-1 in India. I am not in for any form of shock. @Narbavi, actually you guys only started it so I have all rights to strike back.

Posted by Narbavi on (December 17, 2012, 7:01 GMT)

@priceless1 and @LDuminda: Not really!! when u give us something we tend to give it back more, if indian cricket is school boy cricket then i don't know what to say about your team!!

Posted by Narbavi on (December 17, 2012, 7:00 GMT)

@Sinhaya: U guys started it, always making fun of india despite having a poor overseas record and also a poor record against india, how do u expect us to be quiet then? I never asked dilshan to walk by the way, he said SL were unlucky so i said it didn't matter as he got lucky in his innings

Posted by Narbavi on (December 17, 2012, 6:56 GMT)

@ Mayan Priyadarshana: That's exactly what i want u guys to do, before making fun of our 0-8 you guys should have realized about your own poor overseas record, before making fun of us not making finals of cb series u guys should have realized that we won it the previous time where you lost 6 games, but you guys never realized that!!

Posted by Ranveerrsingh on (December 17, 2012, 5:55 GMT)

Sinhaya, 14 decisions against NZ in the Ind-NZ series......i think you were looking at some live club match....mate i saw this match as well, please do not sound cheap as dirt!! What happened in the SL-NZ series played just a few weeks in SL.....did SL win without any umpiring howlers? No, even the Kiwis beat SL and drew the series in SL(please look at the ICC test rankings of NZ and England)

Posted by Ranveerrsingh on (December 17, 2012, 5:40 GMT)

Sinhaya, looks like you have lost it completely!! Crying sour grapes. Make sure that SL win something before commenting.. Sinhaya, please tell us when us when was the last time SL won a home test will be in for a shock!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Posted by dinosaurus on (December 17, 2012, 2:27 GMT)

Look, What I have learned from watching the DRS in action is that it is a gamble to review a LBW decision, so many of them are 50-50 ie Umpires call. If you know you've hit it or the non-striker is sure it pitched outside leg it's worth a go (batting side) or if the keeper is convinced it meets the in-line criteria and the bowler is sure the batsman didn't hit it, then by all means go. The present system is entirely fair (if you don't try to recover the unrecoverable). If you can't tell whether you really think it is out or are just hoping it's out, too bad!

Posted by Moppa on (December 17, 2012, 1:35 GMT)

@land47, the main argument against umpire-initiated reviews is constant intervention interrupting the feel and flow of the game, and significantly changing how on-field umpires operate. There are two models of umpire initiated review: 1) initiated by on-field umpire and 2) initiated by third umpire. Model 1) was tried in the World XI v Aust Test of 2005 and was a farce - basically, the on-field umpired reviewed everything. Model 2) might work. However, there would need to be a clear protocol for the basis of and process for intervention by the third umpire. My main concern is simply that teams would take a wicket and immediately stand around waiting for a green light to come on in the grandstand - it would ruin the spontaneous joy of taking a wicket in Test cricket. Of course, the current DRS does this to some degree, but seems to me a reasonable compromise

Posted by Dags- on (December 17, 2012, 1:05 GMT)

Surely the reason why the captains decide when to review is because - just like with the review system in tennis - you don't want to have to stop and wait for a few minutes after every slight chance. I think the system is fine and adds an extra element to the game without slowing it down unnecessarily.

Posted by Sinhaya on (December 17, 2012, 1:03 GMT)

@Narbavi, I respect Australia, England, Pakistan teams and their fans big time. I am also realistic about our test prospects too against Australia so I comment accordingly. With Aussie fans respecting Sri Lankan players I give immense credit to the Aussie players. That is why you never saw me talking trash about Australia. I am grateful to Cricket Australia for giving us the chance to play in the 2 marquee tests of the Australian summer of cricket. When you Indians keep talking trash about Sri Lanka, I am forced to respond rather than waiting like a sitting duck. Should you stop trash talking my team, I will follow accordingly. Have a look at my response to sachin_vvsfan in the match report for day 2 of this Sri Lanka Australia test match where comments are now being closed. Thank you!

Posted by Sinhaya on (December 17, 2012, 0:54 GMT)

@lukecannon-ENG, I fully agree. Tendulkar and many Indians are never walkers and now Narbavi is blaming Dilshan for not walking haha. If DRS was used, Tendulkar would have been on no more than 12000 test runs by now.

Posted by on (December 17, 2012, 0:26 GMT)

When was the last time SL won a home series? ...... cannot remember!! Has SL won a test match in Aus or India.....not yet, what? You must be joking!! SL fans first start winning atleast at home before commenting on other teams...Hilarious

Posted by Sinhaya on (December 17, 2012, 0:26 GMT)

@Narbavi, hey have a look at how NZ lost wickets in the Hyderabad and Bengaluru test. 14 decisions against NZ were nothing but umpiring howlers. You try to show how Dilshan is lucky, so what is wrong in me showing how Kohli is lucky?

Posted by cricmatters on (December 17, 2012, 0:19 GMT)

@simon cowell I agree whole heartedly. Technology should become part of decison making however players should not be part of it. When any team decides to review the decision, it is basically saying we think that as an umpire you have failed and we would like a second opinion. However when a third umpire is keenly wathcing the game and has the benefit of the technolgy, he should be an made an active decision maker. So to get a batsmen out, you need all three umpires to agree that it is the right decision. Third umpire can quickly check for the no ball and any howlers and get back to the on field umpire in a jiffy. This way the umpires would regain the control and the authority they need to control the game and it would allow the game to flow. Let umpires decide which decisions they want to review instead of players. Basic Common Sense but sadly in short supply at such an elite level.

Posted by irmark on (December 17, 2012, 0:12 GMT)

There are some changes that should be made to the review system,

But Having each captain only having 3 reviews,

(although i prefer the two unsuccessful reviews, that way the more marginal the decision the riskier it is as you lose a review,)

it reduces the delay that might be caused if all decisions were automatically reviewed, (this was one of the major criticisms against the review system before it came in) If every appeal was revied you would have 10-20 reviews a day in test cricket, not three per innings logical enough?

and adds an element of strategy and tactics

That said, I think the system could potentially be made better, but with a higher difficulty of having it available at every ground,

IF you had a set up where the Thrid upmire could just click through, No Ball view, slighly slowed trajectory and hot spot View each ONLY once, no going back gour countless reviews and frame by frame, (If it is that close then stick with umpires decision benifit to the batter)

Posted by Blakey on (December 16, 2012, 23:48 GMT)

Ed Cowan's non-appeal is the concern. Should a third umpire come in on a situation like that where obviously the Sri Lankans weren't confident in appealing to start with. I don't mind the players referring decisions. They just have to learn a bit more about the game and the conditions. The Sri's wasted their reviews.

Posted by CockeyedObserver on (December 16, 2012, 22:29 GMT)

What a crazy superficial view. The two LBW reviews were for the two inform batsmen in the side both of which should not have been given out by the umpire - how could the umpire have felt there was no doubt when both ended with only half and in one case even less hitting the stumps. If the the decision had been not out by the umpire then it would have been unlikely that there would have been a review at all. Surely a deeper analysis of the situation is not too much to ask!

What is an issue is the quality of the umpiring. Why should the SL's have to request a review for something that was blatantly out?! Is it no longer the onus on the umpire to get it right? Herath's wicket was a clear example of pathetic umpiring. The first principle of LBM is that the ball must be hitting the stumps forget the fact that is hit the bat! Where is the analysis of the quality of umpiring?!

The should be one sub-continental umpire and one other in these games to keep some level of balance!

Posted by likeintcricket on (December 16, 2012, 21:47 GMT)

If Dilshan can play than any good batsman can score on this wicket. It will be a tame draw if Sri Lankan doesn't panic.If the game last for whole day than Australian will declare at a lead of 450 which will test the Sri lankans but rain could be the ultimate winner.

Posted by   on (December 16, 2012, 21:47 GMT)

This is why the DRS needs to be taken out of the control of the captains and given to the third umpire. That way he can immediately radio down to the field umpire if there's a decision that's clearly wrong (like the Herath lbw) and overturn it that way, rather than captains gambling on millimetres either way, as we saw so much of in the recent South Africa series. If we want 100% accuracy in the decisions, get rid of the umpires altogether and have technology decide everything. Otherwise leave the DRS for the shockers and let the game flow a bit more.

Posted by Chris_P on (December 16, 2012, 21:39 GMT)

Mark Taylor has suggested that the reviews should be taken away from cricketers & allow the 3rd umpire to do more. And this actually sounds a smart way to go. There is no doubt Sri Lanka's lack of use with DRS is making their calls a little dicey. But really, the 2 earlier challenges by the batsmen were in hope. I think the 3rd umpire intervening seems a lot more even for all concerned.

Posted by   on (December 16, 2012, 21:38 GMT)

@Sinhaya and Narbavi: All I see are an Indian and Sri Lankan quarrelling like school children. Why don't you two take a hike ? I favour the DRS system and if a player becomes unfortunate along the lines while using it, so be it. It's way better than sitting in the dark ages without the DRS, like how the BCCI are doing it. The BCCI is damaging Indian cricket ever so rapidly. Especially that man, N. Srinivasan - public enemy # 1.

Posted by Simoc on (December 16, 2012, 19:39 GMT)

I have to agree with the commentators here. Take the DRS out of the players hands and give it to the third umpire. The Herath lbw is the type of decision the DRS was bought in to eliminate and wasn't available. Cowans looked plumb and there was an appeal so the third umpire could have stepped in to check for an edge as the technology is there.

Posted by Sageleaf on (December 16, 2012, 18:15 GMT)

Dilshan..who decides on Review? Skipper Mahela should know better. His review on the second day was like in desperation because they could get a wicket. I think you have do more home work Mahela. Herath cannot get a wicket but Lyon can so what is Herath lacking? Pls read the article from former Aussie spinner Ashley Mallett. SL have failed to face fast bowling again, just giving Siddle a five wicket haul. I think SL can beat Australia. But they have to do lot of home work and make fielding immaculate and be innovative...just don't wait things to happen and play negative cricket.

Posted by priceless1 on (December 16, 2012, 17:54 GMT)

looks like Narbavi and some Other Indian supporters have give up on Team India and watching the Aus & SL clash instead

Posted by landl47 on (December 16, 2012, 17:28 GMT)

As I've said many times, all decisions should be made by the 3 umpires working together, using whatever technology is available. It's ridiculous for the players to have to guess whether a decision is right or not. That's what the umpires are for. Just leave the game in the hands of the three umpires and you'll get the most possible accuracy in every decision.

I have no idea why this is not the clear and obvious policy of the ICC and the various boards. Can ANYONE come up with a logical reason why it should not be done this way?

Posted by LDuminda on (December 16, 2012, 16:26 GMT)

@Sinhaya , ya mate..lot of Indians like Narbavi seems to be putting their heads in to SL columns when the can't watch anymore the way thier "School boy team"playing.SL atleast putting up a fight unlike Indians later in the last year. (8-0)lolzz...

Posted by Narbavi on (December 16, 2012, 16:25 GMT)

@Sinhaya: Been noticing your comments, sometimes u speak as if you are the nicest man on earth, on other occasions u post some nonsense comments without enough evidence to back up your theory, best example is your claim of NZ getting 14 bad decisions to lose to india in the test series recently!!

Posted by Narbavi on (December 16, 2012, 16:23 GMT)

@Sinhaya: We are talking Dilshan's claims here, so i talked about him getting lucky, what is the need for u to bring in kohli now?

Posted by Danufur on (December 16, 2012, 15:34 GMT)

I think we are missing the point here. Yes, Sri Lanka did not make the best use of the DRS system. But the fact is that umpires continue to make lousy decisions. If they did their job well enough, this would not be an issue.

Posted by Extraz on (December 16, 2012, 15:08 GMT)

Dilshan is right SL were clearly very unlucky with the reviews but still i think SL can win this match.Best wishes to SL from Pakistan.

Posted by   on (December 16, 2012, 14:48 GMT)

Dear Narbavi, Isnt that better to get 330+ in aus and loosing a test than getting hammered by 10 wickets at home against eng? how many times india managed to reach 300 in ENg and Aus,? never mind overseas tours, how many times india reached 200 in home series against eng? i think u've been following sl way more than ind so u much have missed those scores, go check how great team india doing and then move on to sl

Posted by lukecannon on (December 16, 2012, 14:44 GMT)

Like the countless times Tendulkar didnt walk?? eh narbavi?? watch some youtube mate.

Posted by lananad on (December 16, 2012, 14:38 GMT)

ICC should get rid of DRS and have the third umpire reserve desicions if it is wrong. We want the right decision end of the day.

Posted by Last_ride on (December 16, 2012, 14:22 GMT)

Oh come on please just tell you dont know how to use it.

Posted by Sinhaya on (December 16, 2012, 14:11 GMT)

@Narbavi, hey Virat Kohli was very very lucky yesterday en route to his ton as 2 plumb LBWs were not given. Stop talking nonsense please.

Posted by Narbavi on (December 16, 2012, 13:30 GMT)

oh really? then why don't u explain how lucky u got that despite edging the ball clearly the aussies didn't appeal

Posted by NAD_SriLankanBoy on (December 16, 2012, 12:51 GMT)

Good Attitude from Dilshan...I think what he says is what must be done...good going boys

Posted by   on (December 16, 2012, 12:46 GMT)

yes, we did not use the reviews well, if there was doubt about an inside edge should have asked the umpire atleast
