Day 1 at the Gabba, day/night test, Sri Lanka blown away for 144. Dreadful batting effort.

Australia 37-1, burns out

Credit to the aussie selectors on picking in form Jhye Richardson. Really looks like a talent and showed it on day-1

Starc must be looking over his shoulder ahead of the Ashes. Yet another mediocre display wasting the new ball. How Cummins doesn't get the new ball over Starc is staggering

Jhye looked sharp today, bowled very well. Cummins bowled well, Lyon as expected but agree that Starc wasn't as expected with the new ball, just mopping up at the end of the innings. Jhye will surely be part of the Ashes squad, offers pace, movement and skids it though from a lower trajectory than the other Aussie quicks

Cummins has been exceptional for the last year or so, really come on as a bowler.

Australia 278-8, Marnus 81 and Head 84. The Lankans getting the ball moving all over the place under lights.

Unfortunately for the visitors they are too far behind

Lakmal with an outstanding 5fer. The old war horse has been magnificent

Patrick Cummins took a career best 6-23 and match figures of 10-62 as the Australians hammered Sri Lanka by an innings. Once again Starc got smashed around. Can't see him being in the playing XI for the ashes

Depends who can stay fit for the Ashes tbh. Cummins, Hazlewood, Starc, Richardson and maybe Pattinson could be the options. Pattinson got injured again in the BBL but he's most suited to English conditions

Australia have added Marcus Stoinis to their squad for the second Test. Looks like Mitch Marsh's ship has sailed.

Thank God, it has sailed and hopefully it never docks again.

Right now SL team getting smashed by everyone, they donot seem to have any solutions.
Changing captains after every second series is not the solution, Their management have to look forward towards a permanent solution right now, on the fly fix is not going to work in this situation.

Overall SL cricket is on a decline and is in state of free-fall, player like chandimal, Mendis and Methews are not taking enough responsibility, one odd good innings here or there is not helping out the overall team motive.
As the result of constant decline we donot see any SL players in any of the leagues which is a big drawback right now as their skill set is not improving/evolving at the same pace as the other players from other countries and hence the new or even the old players are not able to cope up with the high and quick (interms of  results) demanding cricket these days.

Right now there is no space for a player to come to an International side and take time to deliver the results, at this point you have to adopt and produce results quickly.
For example Pak team -they have 3 player in top 5 to get fastest 1000 ODI runs.

Second Test started tonight. Australia unchanged whilst Sri Lanka made four changes. The tourists lost all three seam bowlers from the first Test to injury.

Paine won a rare toss but the hosts struggling 16-2. Harris and Khawaja failing
