Sri Lanka reached 76 for the loss of 5 wickets at lunch on the first day of the second test against Austraila being played at the Pallekele International Stadium.

Having won the toss and electing to bat, Sri Lanka were reduced to 35 for 3 within the first hour, courtesy of poor stroke-play, and some good fielding from the visitors.

Kumar Sangakkara and Thilan Samaraweera then put on a partnership before the latter was caught behind off the bowling of Ryan Harris for 17 -- Sri Lanka on 57 at that point.

Prassanna Jayawardena was the next man out for 18, after he took to Nathan Lyon's first over, scoring 12 runs off the over, before being caught in the deep playing an unnecessary lofted shot on the final delivery.

Sangakkara was on 29 with Angelo Mathews yet to face a delivery.

    Think it would be a good idea to relate their salaries to their performances.Once we do that ,we will see how they perform.This has nothing to do with IPL,the guys who played in the IPL are performing but the one who came back early is failing though his so called dedication earned him the captaincy.

    damn..

    Cannot play spin or pace. Kick out the selectors and most of the players. Players ought to give 100% to Sri Lanka and not moonlight playing in IPL. Bring in some controls and contracts to make these treasure hunters to keep them committed to Sri Lanka.

    Any fools other than family members of players who are following what's going on? I gave up watching cricket after Sanga's puppet role as captain at WC final when Indians were batting. We had better control over the game than captain who was behind stumps.

    Actually it was panic Sanga who killed the game. Agreed surely with you, though I was inspired by his speech at Lords.

    In Galle it was the DUST, wonder what the excuse would be this time around

    nawala nihal Thursday, 08 September 2011 07:16 AM

    dear sri lanka finish the match soon and save some money...

    Senna Thursday, 08 September 2011 07:16 AM

    This is IPL Curse. What Arjuna said was very correct.

    Bada Thursday, 08 September 2011 07:23 AM

    After world cup, SL failed miserably and past five tests (Under Dilshan Captaincy), SL failed to fulfill past glory. Batting & selection of team real pathetic (I.e not inclusion Mendis last test and batsmen sacrifice their wickets,). SLC should immediately select foreign coach.

    Senna Thursday, 08 September 2011 07:17 AM

    After IPL money.
