Reminder that the test starts tomorrow in Colombo. 10am AEST, this is the time so I can commentate on most of it and it doesn't class so much with the India test which we all know would win. The 12 has been chosen and 11 will be decided before the toss.

Ehsan, Pundit, Unknown, Piranha, Oracle, Navarene, Bourny3, Chinaman, AsifTheManRahman, Rafiq, Habibul_fan, Mueid

Hello and welcome to the Sinhalese Sports Club. A few showers have been predicted for today however at the moment it's just overcast, the covers are off the pitch and the news is that BanglaCricket's Ehsan has won the toss and elected to bat first. The pitch is a great batting wicket, it's hard and fast and will crack as the match progresses so you wouldn't want to bat fourth on it. An important toss to win
