Even that innings shows that they deserve more games. Would be a great thing if the likes of themselves and Bangladesh got more games.

The local broadcaster had a technical glitch and couldn't show the game, which is awful.

I'd love a Test championship with tiers.

Aren't we getting that soon? The test championship? I think most teams are in favour of it and it's going to happen from what I understand.

Really? Got a link? I think it's only ever talked about.

Nah, you're right, it's being 'planned', my bad. I was sure it had been confirmed. It would be a great thing anyway, and absolutely want to see Ireland and Afghanistan playing test cricket.

Huh, I thought the Test tiers thing was a done deal too.

And I feel bad for the person tasked with being enthusiastic on the Black Caps' social media accounts.

^how come?

Some interesting results lately. After getting thrashed in the second Test Pakistan have rolled England for 297 on day one of the third Test, with Sohail Khan - his first Test in five years and only second ever - getting five wickets.

Starc with two early wickets against Sri Lanka.

And the West Indies managed to eke out a draw against India. They were 304 runs down on first innings, but Roston Chase, a 24yo offie who got a Michelle bowling, made 137 not out and there were half-centuries to Blackwood, Dowrich and Holder.

Mendis is doing well to back up his 176 from the first test, and again having to save his side from their poor early position.

Sri Lanka can get bowled out for 100 and that would still leave them in a strong position, geez.

Wow, this is really extraordinary. Herath only the second Sri Lankan to take a Test hat trick (and the first was against Zimbabwe, though back in the 1999-2000 season before they went completely to shit).

I definitely should've tuned in today. Damn work.

it was incredible, I was calling at the time and I have to give credit to commentators, that shit was hard, with so much happening.

They're just going the tonk now. Hilarious that they have such an advantage that 4/79 is not even remotely troubling.

Herath would still have to be one of the more underrated players in world cricket, and I hope that for cricket's sake he doesn't retire too soon.

Sri Lanka are already leading by 300 which is normally pretty difficult, but on this pitch it's very improbable.

I would say that they could have declared with a lead of 200 and comfortably won. Obviously you'd never put the opposition back in but they could have done that and still won, I reckon. We are that bad in the subcontinent.

400 run lead just reached by Sri Lanka. Pretty handy 50-run partnership by Perera and Herath.
