    Bring me to some light here, when does it start and what are the probable teams ??
    especially what team are Australia playing?
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box

    Well Pakistan is playing a very young, inexperienced team. Where as Glenn McGrath was quoted as saying and I quote "Those young ****'s better have health cover as Im going to leave a few scars on them".

    Possibly Imran Nazir and Taufeeq Umer will open the batting, instead of Saeed Anwar. Imran Farhat and Faisal Iqbal are chances of playing too.

    Young Leggie Danish Kaniera also might play along with Saqlain Mushtaq. Misbah Ul Haq will play ahead of his namesake Inzamam cos good old "aloo" is injured.

    Pakistan (from): Waqar Younis (capt), Imran Nazir, Taufeeq Umar, Faisal Iqbal, Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq, Saqlain Mushtaq, Abdul Razzaq, Rashid Latif (wk), Shoaib Akhtar, Mohammad Sami, Danish Kaneria, Naved-ul-Hasan, Imran Farhat, Mohammad Zahid, Hasan Raza

    Australia (from): Steve Waugh (capt), Adam Gilchrist (wk), Matthew Hayden, Ricky Ponting, Justin Langer, Mark Waugh, Darren Lehmann, Damien Martyn, Shane Warne, Nathan Hauritz, Andy Bichel, Brett Lee, Jason Gillespie, Glenn McGrath

    No real comparison, Australia will win this series hands down. 3-0 victory, or if the tretcherous Sri Lankan rain pours again and forces a draw, then 2-0 victory to Aussies.

    The 1st game gets underway in about 15 minutes...

    I expect an easy series win to Australia...

    It will really test the so called depth of the Pakistani side, if they can match it with the Aussies then they have backup to their claims....

    This is more like a Pak B team, the most senior batsman in the team is Younis Khan who has played Just 20 test matches! I won't be surprised if such a team get out to a score below 100.
    The matches will probably won't last till the fourth day!

    Pakistan's biggest problem is their batting, missing the likes of
    Inzamam-ul-Haq, Yousuf Youhana and Saeed Anwar so will be relying
    on the newbies to come through but their strength lies in pace
    bowling with help from Danish Kaneria and Saqlain "a
    Australia could play two spinners by adding off-spinner Nathan
    Hauritz and Shane Warne but look set to back their fearsome pace
    bowling attack, Glen McGrath, Jason Gillespie and Brett Lee with
    only Warne.
    Australia's batting picks itself with Justin Langer opening the
    innings with the inform Matthew Hayden and the Waugh twins
    slipping into the middle order.
    The venue is the P. Saravanamuttu stadium with a pitch expected to
    assist fast bowlers on the first morning before becoming a typical
    slow Sri Lankan turner.
    Weather forecast not too good, calls for scattered thunderstorms
    through till Monday and last night's rain was not too heavy so an
    on time start today.
    Australia has won the toss and are batting.

    A lively first over from Waqar.

    Langer hit a hard catch to gully and is dropped by Sami. Hayden pulls his first ball for four, leaves the next two and then tries to pull the fifth ball of the day only to top edge to cover. POnting then ducks into a bouncer getting hit on the helmet for his first ball. An exciting day to come.

    That dropped catch can prove to be very costly, Langer might come up with a big score.Had that catch been taken, Aus would have been in some trouble.

    Ummm.

    Could this game be a real one sided...


    Yes.

    But could it become even more so?

    Yes!

    I can see why M Waugh is under pressure - his career average of 42 is lowest of the Aussie Top 7!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
