    Pink-ball cricket will mark its debut in Sri Lanka when the first unofficial Test between Sri Lanka A and West Indies A commences at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Tuesday.We have been lagging behind other countries in experimenting with the pink ball, but a start had to be made somewhere, Sri Lanka Cricket vice-president K Mathivanan said. With the ICC planning to introduce day-night Test cricket in the near future we should be prepared to face the changes and not lag behind.Sri Lanka currently use the Australian Kookaburra ball in their domestic tournaments. Mathivanan said the pink ball costed as much as the red ball, priced at LKR 16,000. SLC is also likely to use the pink ball in their forthcoming domestic competition.Sri Lanka A captain Dimuth Karunaratne felt the pink ball doesnt differ drastically as compared to the red ball. We have had few practice sessions with the pink ball and found it very much similar to the red ball, he said. But with use, pink ball gets a bit strange and the colour fades.Shamarh Brooks, the West Indies A captain, said the experience of having played with the pink ball should help. The balls we use in the Caribbean are a bit light in colour, these balls are brighter, he observed.Pink ball trial aside, the series will also help Sri Lankas national selector identify players who can make the Test cut ahead of the tour of Zimbabwe in October-November.Among those fighting for the opening slot are Karunaratne, Roshen Silva and Lahiru Thirimanne. I think we have a strong team with some drop outs from the national squad. So this is a great chance for all of them to regain their form and perform well for the country, Karunaratne said, while sidestepping the question about competition for places.Sri Lanka A coach Avishka Gunawardene said the priority was to identify a battery of fast bowlers. The Zimbabwe and South African tours are coming and we have to find more fast bowlers so we will focus more on the fast bowlers during this series as that is the national sides need of the hour, he said. We have a good balanced side including Under-19 players who performed well at the last Under-19 World Cup.West Indies will play three four-day matches and three one-dayers during their month-long stay.

Weve been hearing the rumors circulate for more than?a year now that there will be a sequel to the box office hit movie Space Jam. While some are eager to watch a remake of the 1996 animated comedy that?starred Michael Jordan, there are also some who feel it would be an insult to the original.Toronto Raptors forward Patrick Patterson falls in the latter category. He?took to The Players Tribune to voice his opposition to a potential Space Jam 2.Im going to touch on something pretty controversial here, something that means a whole lot to millions of people. But I cant be silent any longer.Please, please, Hollywood, Im pleading with you, do not make Space Jam 2.Patterson believes it would take too much to re-create the cinematic experience.Im a huge movie fan. Movies are a big part of my life. This summer I even had the opportunity to help cover the Toronto International Film Festival for the CBC. So please know that I dont say this lightly: The original Space Jam is the perfect movie. The. Perfect. Movie.He goes on to say Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes characters arent as popular anymore. For the kids saake, characters like SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick would have to fill that void.dddddddddddd Patterson also doesnt think the cast would be as entertaining. As we know, LeBron James has been mentioned to play the Jordan role. But Patterson doesnt believe someone like Bill Murray, who displayed some impressive basketball skills during the movie, can be replaced.He has a point. No one wants to see the sequel to such a classic?fail to live up to the hype.?But if the movie finally hits theaters, even Patterson knows hed probably be in attendance.Look, I get why they want to make a sequel. The money will be insane. I mean, Im straight up saying I dont want Space Jam 2 to get made, but I know that Ill see it regardless. Thats how loyal the Space Jam fan base is, Patterson said.The original?is set to make an appearance in select theaters for its 20th anniversary on Nov.?13 and 16. And that could be as close as we get to seeing Space Jam hit the big?screen again.-- Josiah Turner Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
