More of the same?

Let’s hope not. Can the Kiwis break the cycle. Would they be able to take the game to the last session on day 5. And manage a draw.  Or dare we say even better.

If they do it would be very interesting. We have thought of a few other ways that this test could be made more viewer friendly.

-The kiwis win the toss and to everyones bemusement, send SL in

-Vetorri opens the bowling

-Dilshan plays a sedate/Dravid like innings reaching 50 by the end of day 1

-Kumar Sangakkara actually makes some runs

-Jesse Ryder has to chase the ball to the fence several times in one over, all resulting in all run 4s.

-Murali doesnt pick up any wickets

-Mendis does

-Jacob Oram does a Super Freddie Flintoff.

-Then promptly injures himself.

-A backfiring car sees the Kiwis hit the deck.

-Mahela Jaywardene doesnt get caught behind

-And Dan Vetorri reveals he considered dropping himself from the team in his new capacity as selector.

    Another wicket for Mahela, maybe? Or perhaps Sanga will bring himself on instead.

    How about Muba getting selected to the final XI and end up getting a 100 – better than a run a ball.

    How about SL picking Prasanna at Number 6 and five bowlers as a handicap to help NZ or dropping Paranavithana and bringing back Warnapura.

    So Kiwis never gonna draw this… because Mahela will give a sitter to McCullum.

    Looking at the sky these days a SL v NZ water fight is also a good possibility

    Dave- A fine suggestion. Mahela should get a bowl if he doesnt edge it behind.

    Som- You gotta pick on the fat kids. Thats just life.

    Sach- Thats just going too far buddy. Just too far.

    Shine-I think it would be quite an achievement if I do that too.

    Inside-Brining back Warnapura, once again going too far.

    Rat- Lets hope thats not the case. Some test cricket is always better than no test cricket. Or so I have been told.
