 Pacer's bowling in the 120s on the first day first morning.


Batsmen perishing to innocuous balls.


After such gritty and high quality test cricket between India and Australia  ... this is looking pedestrian.


Maybe Wood would crank it up.

Broad picks up two wickets.


First with a delivery on the leg stump at 128 k.


2nd with a loopy wide delivery at 121 k.


These SL batsmen are trying to play T20 in tests and perishing to innocuous balls. No wonder they have such low averages. 



 Broad  in  SC conditions is trying different grips to change the pace and bounce as he knows he cannot survive the full tour if goes full blast . Saw a video of him explaining different type of releases to be used in SC  conditions. One needs to careful early of assuming same speed & bounce while playing strokes to him till you get to make out the tricks he is using .
