Krishna has a Navjot Sidhu moment: ".If India (of course am an Indian) bats for days and days we cherish, why not the same applies for bowling! Cricket includes bowling also right!!. Its ultimately matters how convincingly you win with either bat or bowl. "If you keep on grabbing the mangoes just by jumping a 1 feet height, u can't learn climbing trees ever"

Just throw me a mango, please. Thanks

Mark Kidger: "The big difference in this match is that with no Malinga and no Muralitharan, even if Sri Lanka put 600 on the board in 2 days they may find that taking 20 wickets is impossible in the remaining 3. Is the Sri Lankan bowling going to be more threatening than the Indian attack?"

Hello there. We had quite a mango party yesterday, didn't we?

First up Kunal: "Hope to see a better performance from India today. And to cricinfo, please.... not more comments on fruits and vegetables!" So no watermelons also? I had read up on them last night ... ok no fruits and vegetables then

The rants, though, continue unabated. Madhu V: "What a pathetic situation. The current highest wicket taker in tests has bowled 325 deliveries now without taking a wicket! I think he should stop bowling and do something else to improve his bowling.."

And the stats lovers are in as well. Nagam: "In the run fest, we missed Sanga's record of Hundreds in consecutive matches and also in consecutive innings(137, 103, 130*) all against India!"

More Sanga lovers peep in. Pratap Gopala Rao: "I am delighted to see Kumar Sangakkara doing so well with the bat. But this is not a recent phenomenon. In 90 tests so far, he has scored almost 8000 runs, at the amazing average of 56.39 (higher than all contemporary batsmen, barring none. Higher than Tendulkar, Ponting,Kallis, Dravid, Sehwag, Jayawardene, Smith, etc). In addition, he has scored 23 centuries, six of them double-centuries. If that were not enough, he also holds the record for the highest partnership for any wicket in Test cricket--624 for the 3rd wicket with Jayawardene. Also, his top score of 287, beats out Tendulkar, Ponting, Kallis, Smith and Dravid--- players whose names consistently figure in any discussion on the best batsmen in contemporary cricket. Is Sangakkara not in the same class as the above-mentioned giants of the game?"

Senthil chimes in with an existential question: "Madhu: How can someone stop bowling and improve the same?"

Raj: "Ishant has this knack of bowling 'well' in patches.. Today morning might be his day ? Just trying to cheer up the Indian fans :) " Oh no Raj what have you done. Now all the Irfan Pathan fans will wake up. Be worried. Very worried.

Right then. All set, Mithun to bowl to Sanga.

90.1

Mithun to Sangakkara, FOUR, Sanga is standing well outside his crease and what a roaring start! What a cracker. What a guy! He leans well forward and smokes a full--length delivery through to right of mid-off

90.2

Mithun to Sangakkara, FOUR, This is fun! Sanga is in some mood. He flicks this one through midwicket. the buffet bowling continues.

Qalandar: "ne reason might be that Sanga's average in India, South Africa, WI and England is 40; it's 36.5 in India and 30.something in England; and 34 in WI. On the other hand, a 39.5 average in SA and a 65 in Australia is not to be sneezed at. The interesting thing is one can't determine any pattern from where he succeeds and fails."
