The Cricket Thread, Mark 2

That was a crazy last over. 

Should have been over with a no ball on the penultimate ball that wasn't called. Sri Lanka with a run-out opportunity at each end on the last ball, one at the keeper's end that missed by centimetres, and Williamson at the non-strikers end that hit, and got his bat barely in.

Major League Cricket (US T20 league) teams have been announced: Seattle Orcas, San Francisco Unicorns, Los Angeles Knight Riders, Washington Freedom, Texas Super Kings, MI (Mumbai Indians) New York. As you can see, heavy IPL involvement which bodes well for the league in the long run.

All games will be contested at the Grand Prairie Stadium (former Texas AirHogs stadium, now converted to a cricket facility) this July.

The best bit was that this is all after a Rashid Khan hat trick in the 17th over, what a wild finish.

Cricket greats in the stone age don't know what they're missing. Meanwhile in the County Championship only three out of the first round of eight matches went to a draw.

BBC Sport:

Ireland face a final-day battle to save the second Test against Sri Lanka in Galle after the hosts declared on a mammoth 704-3 in their first innings.

That left them with a 212-run lead and the tourists then lost two wickets to stand at 54-2 - still 158 runs adrift.

Kusal Mendis (245) and Nishan Madushka (205) both fired double centuries with captain Dimuth Karunaratne hitting 115 and Angelo Mathews making 100 not out.

Irish openers James McCollum and Peter Moor then both departed cheaply.

Captain Andrew Balbirnie and Harry Tector guided the tourists to the close but the Irish know that they will have to bat well into the final day to save the contest despite having hit their country's highest runs total of 492 in their first innings.

The hosts' top four batsmen all hit hundreds for only the third time in Test history.

Sri Lanka won the first of the two-match Test series by an innings and 280 runs.
