Oh Dreary me.
This series has been built up around a whole bunch of mini shows.
Tendulkars 20th year in cricket. That’s a long time to be playing cricket Sachin. Lucky sod.
The tussle for the ICC No1 Test Ranking. Apparently either team could attain this. Which of course would be confusing to most as England are clearly no1, given that they won the Ashes.
The fact that no one really knows who will play for either team.
Sri Lanka’s batting is probably the same it was when we lost their last. I havent checked but I am sure Sanath Jayasuriya must be playing.
But Sri Lankas bowling will be interesting. We are hoping the selectors don’t do a doosey and actually pick 3 spinners. I mean ok, its India but 3 might be slightly overkill.
Nuwan, Thushara,Herath, Murali , Mathews is our choice. Do we still love Splendid? Yes, but Herath is more interesting and more importantly, in form.
The dude who got shot and King Kumar and his boi-friend Mahela need to bat well. A couple of phycotic centuries from Dilshan wont hurt.
The Indians probably dont know who they will bowl either. Zaheer is always a threat so he might get a go, although the only cricket he’s been playing is probably on his Xbox.
Ishant still rides around on the back of a performance in some test in Australia.
The key will be Harbajan and Mishra, if they are on song – Sri Lanka will struggle.
It will also be King Kumar’s first real test as a test captain.
Ok so may its not gonna be dreary after all.
