Aus in Lanka

Post by KP_fan on Tue 26 Jul 2016, 9:28 am

First topic message reminder :

that's another interesting test series started
Aus does well in Lanka generally and inspite of playing 4 specialist bowlers only.....they bowled out lankans for only 117
that's a huge bonus after having to bowl first.

Lyon continues to perform with steady consistency

288 the lead and 2 wickets in hand...D5 of a difficult pitch...i would declare first thing tomm morning
Not likely that Aus can go at 3.25 runs for an entire day to chase this down
at best and a remote possibility they may bat out the 90 overs for a draw

Sri Lanka out of sight now I reckon. They'll bat on tomorrow for a bit , then put Australia under a lot of pressure...

Probably 3-0 ; unless Smith and Marsh can bat a loooong time.

What was the point of picking Henriques if they didn't want to bowl him in the first innings ? Some strange selections.

Basically the selectors have tried this summer players who aren't up to standard and are still stuck with a pretty poor top 5. I guess that's why they persist with Ballance as he did at least look the part at some point whereas the likes of Hales, Lyth, Compton and Vince have not come off

And lets not forget Taylor. Who knows what may have been!

As usual theres not really an obvious easy solution, just risky alternatives.

Australia seem to be in a similar place, they kinda know guys like Marsh arent up to much but have to keep going back because the alternatives are even worse. I do feel theyve been a bit harsh an short termist on Burns though, he may have bene a rabbit in headlights but he wont learn carrying drinks and is the nearest thing they have to a long term top 5 batsman coming through.

You think England have issues with their top order, Aus will have to replace other Marsh and Voges sooner or later. Their reliance on Warner and Smith is only going to get bigger. We think England have issues with reserve spinners, then we seen Jon Holland...wow...just wow...is Beer not alive anymore?
Lyons a decent enough spinner mind, he even has a noticeably better SR than Ali...remarkable Wink

Aussies are like England - will win games with good fast bowling and cobbling together serviceable totals most of the time, with a couple of players that can make big scores on their day

At last , the Sri Lankan top order delivered. Kaushal Silva made a hundred, after averaging something like 4.2 for the series up to now! With a lead of 288, Sri Lanka are so far ahead of Australia. And they always can slow the runs down if Warner or Shaun Marsh or Smith gets going and if there is any chance of the Australians chasing it down. So Lanka should declare first thing tomorrow morning without losing out on any overs. But I have a feeling Angelo Mathews might want to have a few more runs to play with if he can. With 8 down, there is not a lot of chance of them adding a lot, but he might fancy batting for 5-6 overs and push the lead pass 300.

they have talent OK
batsmen, pacers, many a WKs who can bat.

and perhaps the only country that is producing an assembly line of all kinds of spinners....right arm--offies, leggies.... left arm orthodox and chinaman, carrom ball and also elbow spinners Very Happy

in talent they are mercurial and second only to pakistan.

Tomm-->They should give themselves only 3 overs...18 balls to have a go...off which Dsilva will be onstrike and will face the first 6.
this gives them 85 overs at Aus.....losing 2 overs for change over....means with the 2nd hard new ball they can have 5 overs to knock off the last 1 or 2 batsmen.

actually they may want to bat only 12 balls tomm morning.....will give them 6 overs with 2nd new ball

324 off 83 overs.....is impossible to get on this pitch....the flying start of Warner notwithstanding.

Lanka delayed the declaration a bit in my view, should have given themselves 2 to 3 overs more, as these extra overs will all add to the new ball......and have wasted both their referrals so early

As I write....Marsh falls.....and I have a feeling Aus will crumble when Warner goes

Its looking more like if than when!

Australias two best players in and making a real fight of it, but yes you cant help thinking if/when one of these wuickets goes the rest will follow fairly quickly. As it is though the game is really shaping up. It does seem for both sides that players who get in and settled can bat long and make big runs, but most have got out quickly and cheaply.

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

wheels have come off and Aus 6 down...this cavalier approach on a minefield like this...doesn't work....ever...it's always a matter of time before a ripper gets you...as Warner found out bolwed around the legs

Bang wow..there it goes.

Getting run out is just plain embaressing in those circumstances.
5 wickets for 23 runs, game over.

Olly I thinkHenriques got in because KwhjASKJHSAKJDAHSKHA;HA;ojIHJO and Burns looked just as bad. Some would describe it as desperation. Its the same logic people are applying to moving Ali up to open again and sticking Stokes at 5 for England.

Its interesting that theere s a number of Aus players on this tour who were amongst those who had supposedly played their last test for Australia following the Ashes defeat.

It almost feels like Sri Lanka are taking the weewee here by just using 3 bowlers to blow Aus away after they couldnt take 10 wickets using 8.

Australia just managed to lose a test where in the 1st innings they had Sri Lanka 26-5, and in their first innings they were 267-1

Impressive

well the turnaround was when after bowling out SL for 117 on D1 of the series, and leading by 100 they allowed that kid d'silva to crack 170 and win the game.

The morale and self belief was gone from that point.......and it got so bad in the end that they didn't even know how to fill the 11 playing positions.

in 35 years of Aus-SL history they had lost only one test......and now they have lost 4.

of all visiting sides to subcontinent , in recent times have only seen Eng come and win in India......the reasons for that is another story.

The ODI series has started today. Sri Lanking, putting into bat, scored 227-8 in their 50 overs. Dinesh Chandimal made an unbeaten 80 and Kusal Mendis made 67.
James Faulkner yet again showed his value in this format by taking 4 wickets. Think the Australians should seriously consider him for a test role, think he is better than the likes of Mitchell Marsh and Henriques.
Mitchell Starc took 3 wickets, and in the process became the fastest to hundred ODI wickets. He's a real champion. Hope he stays fit.......

Australia set a new record score for international T20s of 263. Following on so quickly from Englands 444 ODI score it gets harder to argue that the balance in limited overs is too much in the batters favour. Small boundaries and fat edges mean poor shots can go for 6.

what a score from OZ, couldn't believe that!! Maxwell is still an over-rated slogger, who comes off once in a blue moon...He will probably come out next time and make a golden!
