Are you not trusting the 4.30am (GMT) quoted on CricInfo?

You might be able to see it on espn.in/watch - this is now blocked for us in the UK, sadly.

Is this the next Test to take place or have I missed a scheduled series in between?

Agnew is tipping Woakes to open, which says a lot about other contenders for the role. It reminds me (a bit) of Paul Downton batting at 3 against the West Indies in 1984, a similar lack of alternatives.

I think Woakes is a good enough batsman to open but it would be asking a ridiculous amount of him for him to do so. It was stupid enough asking Ail to open in the UAE. Having said that, you wouldn’t expect a swing bowler to bowl that much in SL, so arguably it’s less stupid than that, in terms of effect on the attack and the effect of the player’s bowling on his battting. It’s more absurd in terms of how far outside the player’s usual role though. So:

Woakes
Burns
Ali
?

Then you play

Root
Stokes
Bairstow
Buttler
Curran
Rashid
Leach
Anderson

It’s not a bad side but it’s far more bowling than you need. I love Curran and Woakes but I can’t fit both of them in without leaving Jimmy out. Surely it’s a better side with a specialist batsman in for one of them, even though our specialist batsmen aren’t great.

leach surely a certainty to play. gotta have a spinner who can at least tie up an end and keep it tight. judging by the recent saffer series it could be very low scoring. both moeen and rashid bowl too many loose deliveries. can't be giving away 4 balls every over
By:
Whisperingdeath
When: 21 Sep 18 18:11
Yes true. We don't need 4 seamers for sure but three of them are our best batsmen!

Leach for Woakes or Curran which is a little unfair. Need to see a little more of Leach tbf and would also like to see what Stone cane do but don't think he will play unless we get Herath'd

Yeh I've stayed away from this for now
Heavy rain forecast for tomorrow so might wait to see what transpires.
NEVER convinced by the SL forecasts.
Can easily get a four day game in Galle, so will look to lay the draw tomorrow if the rain doesn't materialise

see sense has prevailed and seems leach is gonna play after all. would have been beyond crazy to go into a test match where it will turn square from ball one without the only spinner we've got who can be relied on to put it in the right areas 6 balls an over
By:
Fatslogger
When: 05 Nov 18 17:05
Have been laying the draw all the way down from mid 3s as the market is prone to getting over excited about the forecasts, which as far as I can see always say it will bucket down. Course, sometimes it actually does so I may get burned but willing to go up to a proper red as required. So far a rather ugly looking £5k draw red for just £3k on results. Don’t think these are test match draw batting line ups on any wicket though, let alone a valedictory dustbowl for Herath.
By:

When: 05 Nov 18 17:06
Can Leach be relied upon to put six balls in the right place each over?

I don't know but if ever he was gonna play it is tomorrow!
By:
mafeking
When: 05 Nov 18 17:18
WD, maybe he can't but we know for certain neither moeen or rashid can bowl some tight overs. in low scoring games you've gotta have some control

2 saffer tests lasted 220 overs in galle and 310 in colombo. gonna have to be an awful lot of rain for there to be a draw in any of the games

If this is a bunsen Rashid and Ali will be effective and take wickets. Contrary to that the SL batsmen may go after Leach because he is new. We shall see. 20 wickets win matches! Nothing against Leach. I think having him in the side will help both Rashid and Moen. We dont need three seamers unless of course they are better batsmen than some of the batsmen, which, I think they may be. I would play both Woakes and Curran as batsmen! Stokes should be six. Three seamers, three spinners and the rest batters! Even Denly can bowl some filth!

it never rains in LankaAngrye
looks like an awkward one with lack of decent forecast/radar,although you can usually see the weather coming in over the ocean in Galle.with comms ramping of course

shame as its the great Heraths final test,strange he's not playing all the tests but maybe he wants to retire on his home ground.i will miss him for sure and will always have fond mememories of him skittling the aussies a few years back.

Goughie just been on radio at 11pm Lanka time and he said "its been raining for the last four hours and ive never seen rain like it"
he also said "unless it rains for four hours a day this match will never be a draw"

i will set alarm and go from there,dont want to get mugged here

pxb is from Aussie land and Betfair changed their rules so that the crim's there couldn't back in-play or pre-play can't remember which one so he gave it neck.

Don't like weather games but have taken a pure guess at laying the draw at 1.95. If they get some play then with two dodgy looking batting teams then hoping odds would change a fair bit. Just a guess though.

Saffers lost 2 nil in Sri Lanka. The margin here was 278 runs.

It's not that South Africa didn't bowl well (including spin). SL were bowled out for 287 and 190.

The issue was they couldn't PLAY spin. I fear the same fate will befall England. There's no doubt we've got some useful spinners but that may be irrelevant.

At Colombo Maharaj got 12 wickets (including a 9-129Shocked) but SA still got done by 199 runs!
By:

When: 05 Nov 18 20:34
I cant see England playing spin as poorly as SA

If they bat first they may be able to put themselves in a position to win a match. Plenty of aggressive batsmen who might get lucky for a short time. Runs at a premium. I don't rule England completely out of it
By:

When: 05 Nov 18 20:53
saffers were shot out for 120 and 70 but england's batting down the order often gets them to a competitive score. 250 might be enough 1st inns in this series. it's not like india where you need 500
By:

SA came in with the wrong approach and paid dearly.
Most of their wickets fell to balls that didn't spin.
They also fell into the trap of big shot or defence. You need to work out a way to get off strike, and know areas where you want to score off each bowler.
Sounds stupid but you have to play to defend your wicket, not necessarily for the turn with Herath. If you nick off so be it, but don't get bowled or LB by the slider/ball that doesn't turn.
It wasn't a raging turner against SA & that's probably why so many wickets fell.
Sometimes it can turn, bounce too much and takes LB & bowled out of the equation.

the pdf that goes with the RGB composites.

My understanding is green is low cloud, blue, thin high cloud and red thick Cumulonimbus cloud.

Assume than that the red colour holds rain??!

Over a million matched already, way more than normal for a SL home game.
Get the feeling people from the UK are blind betting on the forecast when they should know....................
IT NEVER RAINS IN SL FOR A TEST MATCH..........EVERWink
I've seen the draw start at 1.3 in Colombo and not a drop fell until the 5th day when the game had finished!!

mafe - yes, that was mentioned in cricinfo's match preview. Sri Lankan draw layers must be totally minted.

I have made a big effort to jinx this by opening up with a draw lay of my own at 1.94
By:

Lanka love Brits out there spending money, they dont want a 3 day test do they?   No other contry sends spectators in that number so if they are smart they want an extended test match so barmy army can spend whatever they have got in the bars and brothels.
