Draw and England win both at evens now. Surprises me that, even though we've wasted the last hour letting Kev bowl his pies surely we should still win this?

You would think so, SL are only 27 ahead, as soon as we get another wicket they will start to tumble imo.

A few quick wickets with this new ball and it could change quickly Robbie.

 

Yeah, of course. I cant see it though.

 

England are 2 wickets away. If they get into the tail they should finish it off. It depends when they're taken, if its before the close then it should be a formality.

This is where the throwing away of wickets late in the innings yesterday will come back to bite us on the arse.

 

It's a shame because KP's innings yesterday deserves to be match-winning.

Actually, strike my previous post.

If Sri Lanka set England 150 tomorrow, there'll only be about half-a-dozen overs left in the match by then.

We are shitting ourselves again.

 

To be fair Jayawardene and Samawareera are excellent batsmen, and in great form.

 

We should be winning this game, but i wouldn't be at all surprised if we lost it.

Na, Lankans are not scoring quick enough to set a total and win.

SL are not even looking to set a total...they are playing for the draw imo. One wicket on these type of pitches lead to more.

Given how we have batted in the last 12 months, if Sri Lanka set us a total of 125 to win - i wouldn't be confident of getting it.

If they're playing for the draw, then England are still a chance.

No reason first session tomorrow won't be fascinating.

There'll be a result now.

 

(Fuck. Missed that. Wife's turned over to "Come Dine with Me". Keep me posted if anything else dramatic happens in the last 5 minutes.)

Not sure it is game over yet, losing Randiv doesn't really change anything.

 

Two very good batsmen in with another to come.

 

Game over, in that, tsunami aside, there'll be a result now. :whistle:

    • The outstanding start by Diogo Jota to his Liverpool career has been acknowledged with Michael Owen saying that the Portuguese star has been the best signing of the new Premier League season.   While Thiago was seen as the prize capture by the Reds during the Summer transfer window, it has been the 23 year-old former Wolves man who has made a seamless transition scoring nine goals in just 15 appearances in all competitions.   The quality performances of Jota have been worth their weight in gold when you consider the  amount of absentees Klopp has had to deal with through injury.   His rapid progress has caused Jurgen Klopp to shake up his front three with Roberto Firmino the man to miss out on a few occasions, a proposition that seemed highly unlikely just a few months ago.   That added depth to the front line has been seen by many as the final piece to the puzzle in Liverpool being the ultimate all-round team.   The performances of Jota have been worth their weight in gold when you consider the   amount of absentees Klopp has had to deal with.   Speaking on BT (via Metro) the former Reds striker said that consistent form of the forward has been a pleasant surprise.   “No one could’ve predicted that he would hit the ground running like he has.   “He’s surprised me with his pace, I must admit. I think he’s far quicker than I gave him credit for.    "Against Atalanta he was electric.   ‘He just shows composure, a lot of people panic, they just get a shot off as soon as they get any form of space. ‘I just think he’s scored headers, right foot, left foot, he’s scored everything so far and he’s looked the real deal in terms of linking play.   “Nobody could have envisaged the quality that he’s shown so far.”     Fellow former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch added that the ability of Jota to adapt his game has been clearly evident.   “Klopp’s obviously seen something in him, putting him more central or along the three of the strikers that they have. ‘He looks like a poacher.    “He’s getting goals in the six-yard box, he’s got headers, he’s got all types of goals.    “He’s a top, top signing."
