Great double by Root.

There is something soothing for one’s mental health waking up on a rainy Saturday morning and watching live cricket with a cup of masala chai in one hand.

90-0 at tea. Sri Lanka showing some fight here and England need a couple of quick wickets before close. Was Roots innings the highest score by an overseas batman in Sri Lanka?

I'd like to ask our DoF's to prioritise finding a top class spinner in the current January window.
Until we find one, we won't be able to seriously threaten becoming the best side in world cricket on all surfaces

I never can understand how ball tracking can predict the amount of turn. I honestly thought Leach just got that batsmen out. It looked out on the naked eye.

Thought so too but perhaps on TV from front on you don't get a sense of how big the stride forwards is as ball hits pad.

It's already turned. No prediction required

There was an overturned decision for Broad earlier that he got full on the boot - ball tracker showed it going straight on and missing ( which it probably wouldn't have done) because ball tracker doesn't predict turn.

Yes but it’s the amount of turn. I’m not saying it’s the wrong decision but just looked out to me and surprised when ball tracking noted it would miss the stumps.

It looked as if it was doing too much to me...

Didn't see it. But yes, spinners that hit the boot are obviously difficult to predict. Surprised that ball tracking is allowed in that case. But....

I kinda get how it projects the turn but how does it predict height of bounce ?
Presumably it knows the speed but bounce still varies depending on the pitch .

I think so. You rarely get lbws given on a wicket like Perth where the bounce is high.

Bess and Leach have been disappointing this morning not being able to build any pressure. Bowling has been very inconsistent. Sri Lanka have done very well.

It's already bounced. As well as turned. After that it's O Level Physics.

Moeen Ali looks a starter for the upcoming India tour.

From elsewhere

"This is specified in the Playing Conditions, for example in Appendix D Decision Review System (DRS) and Third Umpire Protocol, part 3.4 Review of LBW Decisions:

When the ball strikes the batsman on the full, and the evidence provided by the ball-tracking technology indicates that the ball would have pitched before striking or passing the wicket, there will be no information available from that delivery that will allow the ball-tracking technology to accurately predict the height of the ball after pitching
With regard to determining whether the ball would have hit the wicket under these circumstances, the ball-tracking technology shall project the line of the ball in accordance with clause 36.2.3 (it is to be assumed that the path of the ball before interception would have continued after interception, irrespective of whether the ball might have pitched subsequently or not), and display the simulated path of the ball from directly above the wicket."

Doesn't sound ideal, does it?

No but you can't have technology guessing. I felt for the umpire as it was almost certainly a correct decision to give him out.

Exactly, it is guessing. It's guessing that the ball doesn't deviate on bouncing, and also assumes that it won't go over the wicket (which, to be fair, is an assumption that would be correct in virtually all cases)

Hopefully wrap this innings up before close - anything less than 400 should be straightforward but 450 plus would be very interesting...

Will SL go for a quick onslaught now?! Try for 100?!

Classic commentary by Aggers on BBC!!!
He thought England had taken 2 wickets in 2 balls, in exactly the same fashion.....fantastic slip catches by Root......
Before realising he was commentating on the Sky replay of the wicket!!! 🤣🤣🤣

Right let's get this done and dusted before COP today. Would really prefer to obviate any requirement for a 4.30am alarm tomorrow to listen to England&Wales collapse chasing a nervy 120 :nono:

Finally! A first Test stumping for Buttler!!

A close call but probably correct.

Foot on the line. So out!

They need the VAR line drawing technology! Would’ve been much quicker. 😉

The light and the weather could have an input yet!

A Tough 74 for England to get.
