^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.

Australia get 6 overs to bat until stumps. Burns gone in the first over, then Lyon as the nightwatchman is out in the fourth.

EDIT: Khawaja bowled the very next ball. 3 for 10.

Pakistan conceded the advantage overnight. Eng 0/120, a lead of 17 stumps day three. Not a good position for Pakistan to be in.

Stoked with Sri Lanka's efforts.

Sri Lanka win by 229 runs! Absolutely wonderful result for them and world cricket. First ever Test series win against Australia.

Amazing. Perera is 34 and that was only his 11th Test. Fastest Sri Lankan to 50 wickets.

Kane Williamson just became the first New Zealander to score a century against all other Test countries.

He's an incredible player, it's just so sad the state of Zimbabwean cricket. It's hard to give the Kiwis too much credit.
