    Only 25 overs possible on day four. Day five will start earlier than normal as India chase 10 wickets, can the weather save Australia?

      It probably will because the umpires are interpreting the playing conditions in Dickie Bird style.

        I thought of you as I was posting DD. Kohli came across as a genuinely nice guy. I even got to shake hands with him without him dragging me over the fence and kicking seven types of sh*t out of me which is what the media version of Kohli would have done. Btw, was in Calcutta for the India v West indies T20 back in November - now *that* was a dream come true - India at Eden Gardens...

            Three series defeats in a row for Australia, too. They need a bit of redemption when hosting the Warne-Murali two Test series in a few weeks' time.

            I know we all love seeing this trophy and don't find it at all creepy, so here it is again.

              Sri Lanka are extremely weak currently so I would back even a weak Australia at home. I'm not sure I'd back Aus to beat any of the teams in the top six though (SA, England, Pakistan, India, NZ) even at home so I think Australia minus Smith are current world #6 at best.

                Great to see Dhoni rolling back the years to win the ODI series. Bad luck Australia.

                  Yeah, I almost didn't spot the sarcasm there. *snork*

                    The ODI in Napier between NZ and India has been stopped for good weather. Sun in the batsmen's eyes apparently.

                      Kedar Jadhav's sidearm action is quite something, isn't it? Like grandad bowling to the kids on the beach.

                        SL 102-7 on day one suggests you're probably right.

                          Make that 106-8...

                            A recovery of sorts to finish on 144. Australia end the day on 72-2.

                                This is Sri Lanka's third Test series in two months (two away) – they must be knackered. This series will be a walkover for Australia, from which they'll nonetheless learn little.

                                  They'll lose because they're weak, not down to the schedule. Professional cricketers Worldwide now expect to trek the Globe 12 months a year, with all these 2020 circuits.

                                  Good to see Peter Siddle still getting games for Aus, he seems to have been around since the Millennium

                                    Siddle was not selected but there's a strong case that he should be in the Ashes squad based on experience.

                                    Australia must also be quite tired. Pretty much non-stop since they started the 2018-2019 season in UAE in October. After this series they go to India for 2 T20 and 5 ODIs where they will probably be heavily beaten.

                                        SL back in at the Gabba. End of day two and they're a long way behind.

                                          Hmmm, as good a place as any to shoehorn this in.......our group got lucky in the ballot for day one of the Ashes test at Lord's - I'm not one for bucket lists and all that, but we've been on about doing this for as long as we've been going to tests, so we are somewhat chuffed.

                                          Apparently Day 3 of the Ireland test is (the only one in that test) over subscribed, presume it's a Saturday?

                                            Have just seen that there is an interesting T20I thing going on between New Zealand and India. Three matches for the women and three matches for the men, all as double-headers. Wellington tomorrow, Auckland on Friday and Hamilton on Sunday.

                                            Folk may recall that the NZ v India meeting in the women's World T20 in November saw Harmanpreet Kaur score 103 and kick off the tournament thread.

                                                NZ women win the second T20I with a single on the final ball.

                                                  That means NZ have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the women's series. They also won the first men's match and the second one is in progress now. India looking good for a successful chase to set up a decider on Sunday here.
