    So the first target will be to get the remaining 5 wickets before Sri Lanka notch up another 78 runs. Failing that we would have to bat again and hit some quick runs before pitting them back in and then take all ten wickets again?
    Surely this match is heading for a draw or foes anyone believe that a win is still possible?

    I back them to enforce the follow on but B is very unlikely. Sanga, Dilshan and Mahela would need to be dimissed early in the 2nd innings if we were to win this match.

    15 wickets is doubtful, follow-on not so much. I'm pleased with Junaid Khan's performance so far, he's proven me wrong so far

    First hour is going to be crucial. Need to try and snap up Sanga very quickly and then not let the tail wag. Going to take something special to win this.

    If we enforce the follow-on and the weather holds then I back us to win this match. If we get our tails up we won't need more than 50 or 60 overs to bowl them out in the 2nd innings.

    But it will need us to get the next 5 wickets quickly and for there to be no rain. Probably not going to happen.

    It will take a miracle even we enforce the follow on. Its the fifth day our bowlers will be tired. We are asking for 15 wickets in one day after our bowlers have bowled 90 overs already.

    A) No.

    B) Hell No.

    Hope the team captains put this match out of its misery after SL cross the follow on target tomorrow.

    Only 11 Wickets have been taken in 4 days, Do you really think 15 more can be taken in the last day?

    Don't think so

    Although I would love to be proven wrong;)(In a good way of course bcz Pakistan collapse is still possible:p)

    Even with paks strong bowling line up i think it is a tall order for them to take 15 wickets in a day. This one will be a draw.

    It might be unlikely but not impossible. Didn't we once get England out in a session in one of the test matches so no reason why we can't do the same here

    This is SSC one of the flattest track ever.

    Like i said its unlikely, but if Junaid can get the reverse swing going than SL might crumble under pressure.

    I really wish that Pakistan win this, IF we win this Junaid will have to play a big part here as you stated.

    this.

    They have to redefine flat.

    A special class of flat.

    Hafeez. 196.

    Nuff said.
