Paul. It is hard to explain body language. If you have played team sport and experienced what the opposition convey without actually saying something you will get my sentiments in the story.

New look Sri Lanka in historic series win over South Africa

Agree with you on some points Nuwan. But the gulf between the two is too great mainly due to the Sri Lankans inconsistency recently. Also the Gabba will give them some nightmares with its bounce. They struggled against Southee and Boult. Australia’s bowling is as or more potent than the Kiwis.

Sri Lanka face an uphill task

Dmac is a gifted player who fits anywhere in the backline. Agree I would pick him ahead of Mo’unga in the pivotal role in BBs absence.

That’s right not in the starting lineup. More due to his lack of experience at international level. In time he will prove himself.

I stand corrected on that. Apologies. Two penalties made that difference.

Did you watch the first two Tests? Reckon not.

On domestic form Richie was primed for an AB jumper. Never compared him with Beauden at any stage. Their contributions are poles apart. Picking bits to create conjecture and controversy is what makes this website a winner.

What part of testing his bench strength didn’t you get? Mo’unga was a bit shaky but his control and distribution was second to none.

Anyone else want to contest my assessment.?

New-look Wallabies hope to catch All Blacks on the hop

Hey Paul with respect to your cricketing knowledge, there are certain aspects of Sri Lanka cricket that are not your field of understanding or expertise. Bangladesh may not be feared as you make out. Give them decent exposure in Australia, England and South Africa and you will be surprised at how much they have developed as a force. Because of their former status as minnows the so called top sides deny them of an equal opportunity not proving themselves at the highest level. As for Sri Lanka, yes, I agree they need time to regroup after the loss of their superstars of the past. But this is the least of their worries due to other internal issues that continue to undermine their progress.

Hathurusinghe’s task for Sri Lanka revival is compelling

In most parts of the world, Yes. Not in Sri Lanka where the politics outside of the sport destroys any chance of a quick recovery. Meddling is a known fabric of stifling progress in that part of the world. And right now that is what has them on a downward spiral.
