two pedestrian sides playing boring cricket in front of empty stands,just what test cricket needs

Depends who you ask. Yes we play a  brand of aggressive cricket but it's nice to watch some good old fashioned gritty, attritional cricket once in a while no? But yes, SL have failed to seize the initiative and take the game away so far.

Do you know how many catches were dropped off amir's bowling?  and dont forget it was his first test series after long lay off of 5 years. 

And a fluke fifer in decade doesnt make that particular Ishant a world beater lol.

 

Lol, always luv it deluded Pakistanis justifying Aamir's hype

hype machine never stops

Indian and Uae tracks are by no stretch of imagination a same, One have double paced wickets while other have absolute phatas with no uneven bounce therefore your analogy isnt right here. You could make a case on australian pitches though  and  ishant has done better there.

If the problem is just UAE tracks, why does Amir average 48.5 in Australia, 36 in NZ, 43.5 in Sri Lanka? And in all those places his average before and after the ban are very similar?

Amir got exceptional conditions on the year when he made his debut, it was swinging all over the place then, even Watson was talking 5fers then.Not saying he is not talented but he is was overrated then and he is still overrated now.

Watto was underrated. His avg is quite similar to that of Amir, and this is because of his bowling tapering off later. For most of his career, he had a pretty similar career avg and SR as Amir. I think Watto was an underrated (and under-used) bowler. In ODIs in particular, he was a genuine impact player with bat and a very useful bowler.

Greenbros waving white flag with the likes of Shafiq bowling.  In the 4th session of a key test match.   

 

 

"Bowling paaverhouse".     

 

 

Chandimal is gawn, but if SL somehow get to 450+, the chances of greenbros crumbling under pressure are non-trivial.  They need Dickwella out within the 1st hour of the next session.

even chandimal could have overturned the decision with a review, as we watch shafique merrily bowling a negative line :facepalm:

dickwella 47 of 44, am becoming fan of this guy

He's more than a bit annoying, but so far is a promising lungi version of Gilchrist in tests for them.   I actually liked that new kid who debuted this match better, in terms of batting.  But that's just one innings, and a short cameo at that.

i must say i agree with you that samarawickrama looked like a typical lankan attacking batsman,i liked some of his drives

on dickwella, yes a very annoying blabbering wk but good counter attacking batsman

although yasir is bowled to dust every test he plays because of ordinary pakistani seamers but yasir has improved a lot since that eng tour. i remember he was more of lbw or bowled kind of a bowler ,but now spinning some big, leg spinner is definitely coming out pretty well

Roshan and Ramiz are discussing how the unpredictability of SL and Pakistan make them exciting teams. In other words how their mediocrity make them exciting teams.

Forced to watch this snooze fest as the T20 match is held up. Crap. No crowd, boring game with both teams showing signs of sleeping any moment.

Excuses.  Apologists for the "innocent no-baller" are never short on excuses.  Amir is a poor man's Bhuvi at this point in his career.   A very good ODI bowler who is only effective in tests if the conditions give him some help.   In test matches, you need a better quality of bowler, like Shami, Yadav etc to take wickets without help from the pitch.  And over-hyped Qaidi # 5 can't get it done.   

 

Ishant is not a world beater - he's the 4th choice pace bowler for the Indian team.  But on dead tracks like the one that Amir is playing and leaking runs at 4.7 RPO with the new ball, I would say a hard-working stock bowler like Ishant may even be a better option.   Pak has a better version of Ishant in Wahab - I would expect him to take more wickets this match than Qaidi.  Poor Hassan Ali, dropped for no reason to accomodate the golden boy.  

No idea what happened to Irfan he certainly was an upgrade on Ishant in terms of control.

He was underused so that he would continue to play he was one of the most fragile players ever.

Two utterly mediocre teams ,what a snoozefest if it wasn't for herath.

And also puts in perspective India'wins and the trolls who were calling this SL team a minnow ,now thier team is getting beaten to ground by the same team.  Karma:giggle:

Btw dimuth kurnaratne is a great find for SL,great temperament.

Sweeping Sl that too at their home all of sudden does not seem so inconsequential and insignificant as some people suggested here.

 

Kohli's captaincy was relentless and that is why Indians made it look easy.
