    Rest Murali /Sangakkara
    even though your thoughts are noble I don't think they'll rest murali or sanga.

    Is it be or has there been a lot of Tri-series in Sri where India have been involved over the last 3 years. The Asia Cup 2004, The Indian Oil Cup now this & South Africa Also lost 5-0 in Sri a year or two ago. I think based on SRI current form i'd back them to prevail in home conditions but who just them in the final is going to be interesting.

    South Africa have got all manner of injury problems mounting up, not on the scale of the VB series yet but Dale Steyn might have to play!

    Boucher, Pollock and Ntini all doubts for the series opener, if Boucher missies out AB will keep.

    Can not seem them troubling India or Sri Lanka but should be an interesting series nevertheless.

    At full-strength, South Africa are right up there with the best in one-day cricket. As they are far from full-strength, I'm backing India and Sri Lanka to settle this one.

    Not relevant to the thread, but I saw Steve Hofmeyer sing live at a Blue Bulls game the other week. Quite the experience and nearly forced me to drink the free bar dry

    For those not familiar with the talent of, the above pictured, Kurt Darren here is a treat.

    Why should Muralitharan and Sangakara be rested?

    They are the key to SL 's success in Champions Trophy /World Cup and key Tests . Its best to keep these 2 guys refreshed so that they serve SL in key and important tournaments , instead of playing in meaning less ODIs. There are others who can take their place in these and show what they can do instead . These are ideal opportunities to trial others . For instance , I would like SL Team to play Bandara and Lokuaaratchchi together in some ODIs .

    Murali's cricketing tenure is not going to go on forever and this is an opportune moment as any to trial these 2 guys together instead. Murali bowled 80 odd overs in the second Test and 60 overs in the First . I would, like lot of SL fans, like to see the Guy play more Tests for us than ODIs because, we seem to rely on our Maradona in Tests .

    I think in ODIs the other spinners are equally effective and both are better batsmen than Murali which is better for the ODI team.

    it looks like the series may be cancelled. According to cricinfo, SA will pull out of the series and the indians will play a billateral series with sri lanka! That might be gd...any opinions on this?
