Short day’s Cricket

Posted on: July 23, 2008

Twenty two overs and rain stops play. That’s cricket for you. It’s been raining all over the world.. Or atleast where I am and Colombo. Sometimes you wonder ‘why can’t they just play in rain?’. I mean it would save them tons of money, and it wouldn’t take the fun out either. Oh well that’s the ICC for you.

Warnapura drives the ball on the first days play.

Warnapura drives the ball on the first day's play.

Warnapura has played a good innings, he’s started his career off with a bang. Perfect replacement for Jayasuriya? Nah, Jayasuriya can never be replaced. From his stats though it seems like he can throw a ball too. 115 Frist class wickets for him at an average of 26.86. I don’t quite know the level of Cricket in Sri lanka though.

On another note, it’s good to see Zaheer Khan back. He’s a decent bowler. It bothers me when I see Ganguly bowling 5 overs when Kumble hasn’t bowled anything in the day’s play. It’s a bad time to play this test match because reports say that there is a chance of rain every single day of this week.
