Look at the averages of all the wicket keepers in Test cricket they all average around 35-40 bracket. Only Pant's averaging around 50 but he's a young pup still.

Did I dream that Ben Foakes made an incredible start to his career and is averaging 69.25 with the bat?

Sri Lanka cricket is a right mess - the ICC having to introduce a 15 day amnesty period to report fixing

Paine averages a shade under 35 so he's hardly a passenger. It's hardly his fault that S Marsh, M Marsh, Finch, Handscombe are inept at batting.

Exactly this

Paine cant be blamed for the top 6 failings. Not ideal for any batsmen in his position coming in repeatedly under pressure

Pakistan instantly comes to my mind

I didn't mention Foakes as he's only batted 6 times, so as per Pant comments small sample size

They are dire and have corruption hanging around them

Ask same question to winning sides.
In my opinion its been good year like any other. only one team (better one)can win and its been the case. And thats nature of any team sport

Time to scrap the toss and allow away teams decide what they want to do. eng won 3 tosses in Sri Lanka and won 3 matches. Same for nz - 2 tosses 2 wins. India the same

Warm up match started today. Australia's Test hopefuls didn't fare well. Burns 4, Renshaw 7, Marnus 6 and Pucovski 23. Kurtis Patterson scored 157* but he's not in contention

And Doran scored a 102* as well. They both batted superbly. Pucovski was looking the goods too

Patterson scored another unbeaten century in the second innings. Bizarrely considering his form Australia aren't adding him to the test squad

Josh Hazlewood has a back injury and is out of the series, Jhye Richardson gets into the Test squad. You'd hope Australia would blood the youngster rather than stiff the place out with Siddle and his dobbers

Kurtis Patterson has been added to the Australian test squad and I wouldn't be surprised if he debuts. Burns and Renshaw didn't exactly show much in the warm up match.

Nuwan Pradeep is out for Sri Lanka with a dodgy hamstring
