I hope that Wood and Archer can stay fit.  They will murder the Aussies in the Ashes later in the summer.

This is pretty pedestrian by the Crims so far.

Mon Sri Lanka. I've always liked that cheating no ball bastard Malinga, honest.

Without Googling, does anyone know the capital of Sri Lanka? Clue: it's not Colombo.

Gone for Sri Lanka now sadly. Got a weak middle order.

Shame. Was looking like a good finish up until a couple of wickets ago.

Yeah the let Maxwell settle too much, which meant they were left taking risks when Starc and Cummins came back.

I'd love Australia to collapse but in this specific case I'm fine with them winning, I really don't like Sri Lanka

Just heading back after watching Sri Lanka. The Aussies were pedestrian, and Sri Lanka started their batting on fire, but spin slowed them down then they started to throw their wickets away.

I have never ever understood why he is allowed to do what he does? Whatever it is it's not legal and not bowling.

Except that it is and it is.

He's a chucker.

His elbow's not over-flexed and his arm is above the horizontal.

How's that chucking ?
