    well isn't it that they have the most crowds on boxing day? but i don't get why they have sri lanka's tour broken in two parts when they could have the sri lanka test series then tri-series and then Chappell-Hadlee Trophy

    awesome for us to get a game in Canberra, about time too, after the success of the PM's XI in recent years we deserve it...

    oooh this sounds sooo much better. Test matches later in the season is fabulous. Test cricket should be played in summer, i.e. Jan and Feb, not all over just after new years. And the Australia day Adelaide test again?! It's great IMO.

    Liking this schedule, although it'll make it a bit difficult for me to go to Adelaide etc. to see India. Boxing Day will be huge.

    I expect SL squad for the Test series to include one BSM Warnapura (touted as SL's successor to Sanath J ) and Chamara Kapugedera .

    Although I expect Sanath J will extend his career till this series.

    I hope Moody is still with us then.

    Love the schedule, althoughi would've changed when the CH series was played as with it being smack bang in the middle of 2 test series, i wouldn't be suprised if there are a few players rested for the series....

    TBH the CH series isn't all that relevent, and throw in the CB series in between the Tests and we have an old school schedule.

    At the risk of the Greigy I will rate India's chances as zero at the WACA.

    Harsh, it's my favourite series every year and I'm already looking forward to the next one.
