^ Excuses for the pitch begin. If however it was a spin friendly wicket, by now everyone including the ICC would have been rushing to bury it.
SL may even play out of their skin and score 400 by the end of days plays, but that wicket is too green, means its too green. Its been left so green with only one intention and that is to make it as suitable to the home team as possible, and provide as much assistance to the seam bowlers as possible.
However prepare a spin friendly wicket in Asia, and everyone just loses their heads.
Excuses? You're the one suggesting a pitch should be fined for excessive swing after watching some pretty standard swing in the first hour of the first day of a test match simply because it's green and because your own horrid pitch was fined spitting and turning with variable bounce on day 1.
A green pitch does not automatically equal excessive swing.
