England vs SLanka
Never judge a pitch (or even a test match) by first innings of team batting first, so they say. I do believe in it, but still, when it's a hit-and-miss batting team like England, who are notorious for routinely ending their innings short of expected target, batting at 400/4 with KP in the mood and Freddie in the queue, then I have to think its a flat-bed out there. And that SL are in deep trouble, despite the pitch. The poor batting display in warm-up games, plus the prospect of facing two of the top pace bowlers in the world, and add to it the pressure of chasing a huge first innings score (which England are surely going to it, even they can't mess this one, no?) makes me feel they're deep in the hole.
Not watching the action, just relying on live scores and reports....anyone of you out there catching the game? Any thoughts?
