Sharma to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, full pitched on the middle, worked to wide midwicket

Chetan Narula: " dont understand why there is so much fuss about the scheduling. and there are two reasons for it. 1) in 2001 when india were there for a series, it was lost 2-1. but i remember that this very monsoon season made the conditions very interesting,with the bowlers always in with a chance. Hence we had a result in all three tests. unlike the time when Jayasuriya and company batted for three days to pile up 900+. who wants that?

2) look at the schedule. being in the same subcontinent means that both india and sri lanka get to host home series from october to december and are able to invite teams like England and Australia who will find playing in July unbearable. and then there are the foreign tours in the months of jan to march. which leaves only these two months to visit each other. Why would india go to Sri Lanka in october when the Aussies can come and the BCCI can earn more money?"

Carl: "Some people make test cricket sound too simple... Just because SL are 200/2 does not mean they will score 500... Similarly even if they were 200/6 they could still reach 500... even if both teams score 500 in their first innings we could have any of the 4 possible results... thats the beauty of Test Cricket... Which is precisely why Test cricket will survive and will have a following..."
