Australia bat first and all but remove any chance of a Sri Lankan win by the end of the first day. On the second day they drive home their advantage before declaring at about 550 allowing them a few overs at the Sri Lankan openers.
That was the first Test and it’s also been the second Test too. If it ain’t broke…
This is all getting a little bit boring. We don’t blame Australia though. You can’t blame a team for being better than everyone else and making the game too predictable – you blame everyone else for not being as good.
Hands up everyone who thought Lasith Malinga would have made a big difference in the first Test as well. We certainly did. You can’t say for definite, but it really doesn’t look like it would have mattered a great deal.
