Sub-continental blues

The Sri Lankan and Pakistani batsmen haven't come close to 200 in three matches. The spongy bounce and unfamiliar conditions have contributed to it, no doubt. But these two batting lineups look rather weak for any surface that has a bit in it for the bowlers. The only sub-continental team to have made a decent score is India, but then they had a pretty good batting surface at Cardiff. We will know at the Oval on Tuesday if the Indians are any different from their neighbours.
