comment on the article

India batted very well to reach srilanka's target today but they should never have had to chase 207.

Obviously one of the main reasons for Sri lanka scoring such a high total was because of India's huge number of dropped catches. You would expect the likes of gambhir and karthik to hold on to catches but india's fielding was dreadful today. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. But then when India batted, I saw Dilshan dropping a simple catch(for his standards).

This made me think why it was that so many catches went down in the match and I'm not just talking about one team. Could it be because both team gennerally have poor fielders? Could they not handle the pressure? Was there a problem with seeing the ball due to the light factor or was it for another reason? What are your thoughts?

Because I felt that both teams catching was poor and i wanted to find out what other supporters felt was the reason for this.

What the BBC needs to do is to have a daily Open Thread where posters can discuss various and sundry issues.

When the hosts arbritrarily sets the topics, it limits the scope of discussions.

Open Threads can be most interesting as they can evolve into great debates. Some, as the 1968 Test at Port of Spain, can be nostalgic for some regulars. But most importantly, there will some an arena where everyone can participate in.

It's an idea whose time has come!
