After Kevin Pietersen’s howitzer of an innings yesterday, not to mention fine bowling from Monty Panesar and England in the final session, the 3rd day could well be the last day. Sri Lanka have an awful lot to do, but they’ve shown they have immense pride hidden behind a shield of determination. And that, folks, is possibly the most sickening sentence wot I ever wrote, innit.
Goes without saying that I expect another torrent of intelligent discourse to appear here throughout the day; player dissections; why is Flintoff not posting a short-leg?; is Hoggard going to take 300 Test wickets or will the workload kill him?
Not that I’m teaching you to suck eggs or anything.
In other words, chat away.
