Pak will need to score 300+ in their second innings. Their bowling attack is crap.

Its simple for Pak from here. If the pitch isn't playing any tricks, just play time. Runs will come, Lanka will tire and they will be able to bowl on a deteriorating pitch on day 5.

Not watching, but 13 wickets on day 1, 7 wickets to fall on day 2, nothing so far on day 3. Is the pitch turning into a NZ track and getting easier to bat on?

Report detraveller December 21, 2019 10:29 AM GMT
I thought if they slowed down the draw would shorten but its drifted when they are scoring at 3.3 an over in the last 10.
Report detraveller December 21, 2019 10:30 AM GMT
Draw still looks big to me. They will play at least 1.5 sessions tomorrow and ensure the pitch is at its worst when SL bat. If SL need to bat 4.5 sessions, the draw should be much shorter. Around 5.x

Pak bowling is shet.

pitch still looks very good to bat on, you'd think Pak would want at least 450 lead, maybe 500+
Report detraveller December 21, 2019 11:06 AM GMT
I think Pak are more interested in busting this 1.1 price. And they are setting it up very nicely. They have already proven the pitch is flat so they don't have to do anything extraordinary to get a 10x return.

I would have thought 500 just before tea tomorrow!

Any signs of deterioration in the pitch?

SL will have to bat 4 plus session maybe near 5. If it stays flat tomorrow then shirley the draw must come in. How long will they need to bat is the question but I am pretty sure if the pitch plays well they will be looking at least 500. Will this be down to Yassir Shah? Will Pakistan invest some money for their pensions in the draw?
Report detraveller December 21, 2019 10:50 PM GMT
I am finally redless.

Irrespective of what total is set, there will be serious draw panic if the lankan operners survive the first 8-10 overs. Would love to know more about the deterioration of the pitch, has anyone been watching?
Report Whisperingdeath December 22, 2019 2:36 AM GMT
SL do have a couple of fellows who can bat long. If the moisture has gone from the pitch then Abbas may be neutered and Yasir Shah the obvious threat. As you say if the new ball does not take wickets a panic may well set in. Definitely worth a speculate punt although you would have to think Paki’s should win from here. Also depends how much pace is left in the pitch.

My sources in Pakistan have sent me an extremely rare picture of two famous Pakistani brothers who played test cricket for Pakistan. One was a keeper and the other's purpose in the team was unknown. Both were rather more famous for their ability to win and lose from impossible situations and make money while doing it.

Who can guess their names?

Selling the pic for 99p if anyone is interested.

Hint: Their cousin is playing this game.

For someone with sleeping issues, it is a problem when one test starts at a time he can't sleep while another starts at a tine he can't wake up at. Which test needs to be traded is quite clear to me.

Occasionally I've woken up and found an unlikely result came in on a small long-odds bet I'd forgotten about. Nice when it happens but rare.

More common is to doe off and then wake up at the tail end of a match and realise a forgotten resting bet got matched earlier and I slept through the moment when I could have traded out for a gain and am now almost guaranteed to lose. That or it just got hoovered in the dying embers of the game when if I'd been alert a few moments beforehand I would have had time to cancel it. That's a low-level sh!t feeling.

And of course there's that rotten feeling when you find you've slept through the brief moment early on when one side in an overseas Test match spikes to 10s or higher but claws it back to achieve a much more competitive position throughout the remainder of the week.
