India, Sri Lanka — Poised Thrillingly

Oh boy. I’ve already given up on this Indian side at least three times this match, but hope springs eternal. Say India bowls Sri Lanka out for 200 runs  — or maybe even 250 — by the end of this day. They should have a good chance of equaling the series, barring a wearying pitch and some nasty spinners. No? Impossible, you say? What with Sangakarra, Jayawardene and Samaraweera in our midst?

Either way, we’re going to get a good look at proper, exciting Test cricket. First, India’s spinners must once again shoulder the burden and run out Sri Lanka. And then, it’s their batsmen’s turn — assume Sehwag fails (as he often does in the 2nd innings) — will Dravid stand up finally? Or will have to rely on the unlikely talents of Mithun/Mishra?
