WI belted SL in the first test
2 tests still to play
next one starts on the 15/6
Thought they downgraded that series to 2 tests and 3 ODIs?
Good result for the Windies. Jeez their top order is fragile though.
3rd test 24/6
No rest for SL after WI tour they play SA at home with Steyn back in the SA test squad
they lose a bit without AB though
That's positive for test cricket.
I expect the Lankans to cope a caning in both series. They look very ordinary at the moment.
This one probably does deserve its own thread.
Afghanistan v India starts tonight. Game played at 'home' for Afghanistan in India. Vibrat sitting this one out.
For all the changes for the worse in cricket over the last 10 years - the obsession with t20, the demise of Zimbabwe and the windies etc, the rise of Afghanistan is an incredible positive.
Poor old Afghanistan getting smacked, India 1/253 off 46 overs
Afghans have fought back, 6/347 at stumps. They took 5/54 at one stage which is nothing to sneeze at by any means.
2nd test SL v WI.
SL 9/252, saved by Chandimal with 119 not out
Just saw some of the highlights.
I still can't get past the fact that Rashid Khan -
- is 19 years old.
He looks about ten years younger than or two subcontinental lads I went to high school with in Penang...and I mean when we were in big school
Looking grim for the new kids on the block.
Afghanistan 109, trail by 375.
Afghanistan 4/39 after following on
India beat Afghanistan by an innings and 262 runs.
Over in less than two days. Oof.
well they have to start somewhere
Correct Mr Twizzle. They were playing the number one team in their own conditions.
Batting was always going to be their biggest challenge, Bangladesh still struggle putting 2 innings together.
A few matches a year against countries in their weight class like Ireland, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, Windies and (these SL) will get them up to speed.
SL refused to take the field for 2 hours yesterday after being charged with altering the condition of the ball.
but the Windies got 5 bonus runs
