  • High scores

    Why few experiences in cricket can hold a candle to that of watching a game from the ramparts of the Galle Fort

  • Fightback started with Kumble - Kirsten

    India coach believes big challenge would be to keep the momentum in the third Test

  • Sri Lanka weak at the top

    Sri Lanka's opening batsmen failed to provide starts in three innings and their new-ball bowlers could not prevent Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir from rapidly building a platform

  • Another look at reviews

    The review system needed to be tried, but there are plenty of questions still unanswered and kinks to be worked out

  • Disappointed Jayawardene hints at pace boost

    Mahela Jayawardene, the Sri Lankan captain, blamed the batsmen for his side's defeat in Galle
