All Green (and Gold)

10 Sep 11 02:36
Steady going for Australia on Day 2 with a fantastic partnership between Marsh and Hussey who were both denied opportunity to reach the century mark by bad light.

The first hour of Day 3 is pretty important for Sri Lanka, because if these two get re-settled they could both go on to make big hundreds and the test will be pretty much gone for Sri Lanka who will then be fighting just to survive.  Sri Lanka don't look like a team with a lot of fight in them, however....

The short days have helped to keep the draw price down and there isn't much hope of a full days play for the remainder of the test, so in combination with a pitch that still looks reasonably good I'm maintaining my largest green on the draw and am cheering for Aussie runs.

Regardless of my Draw/Aust bias I've now covered my Sri Lanka exposure at 29.00 to be neutral on them (at the time of writing this they are now into the 30's).  If Sri Lanka pick up Marsh and Hussey before they can settle in this morning the game will be back on, but if they don't I can see them at 60+ by lunch and an outcome in this test could well be decided by bad light.

It's always nice to be all green.  Time to kick back now and enjoy the batting. Mischief
