I read that SL is playing a Test in the Windies after 10 years?
Is this true?

West Indies declined with the retirement of Richards, Greenidge, Haynes, Richardson and the pace attack.

Sri Lanka declined with the retirement of Sangakkara, Jayasuriya, Jayawardene, Muralitharan.

Both are teams struggling to regroup to its past glory.

Sri Lanka very wisely avoided playing West Indies in tests during 1980s when West Indies was a world beater. Sri Lanka started to play West Indies only in 1990s after West Indies had ended up becoming a pale shadow of their glory days.

Sri Lanka all out for 185.
Windies did not enforce the follow-on.
This is going to be a tough series for SL.
Windies aren't that bad at home.
Someone or the other puts his hand up and delivers, with bat or ball.

SL charged with ball tampering

I like how they refuse to take the field every time a charge is laid against them :lol:

I'm finding Sri Lanka's denials enormously entertaining

The Sri Lankans refused to take the field for two hours which coincided with a World cup match (Serbia vs Costa Rica) being held. They agreed to take the field as soon as that match was over. :)

I would've thought most of them would be Portugal fans.
