Good day at the office.

Good day at the office.

The same name keeps appearing in front of our faces. Not because we choose to write it, but because he’s been a phonemon. He captured 4 wickets today on the third’s day’s play. The captured were Gambhir, Tendulkar, Ganguly, and Karthik.

The off spinner looks really good and is still showing us that he cannot be replaced. Mendis also bowled well and picked up the wicket of Dravid, who looks rather ‘out of touch’.

After the extremely good batting preformance by the Lankans, in where four batsmen scored centuries, the Indians have collapsed completely.  Their only hope now is Laxman and Kumble to avoid the follow on or the miracle of god (also known as rain).

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.
