    Yeah, saw that when Zac touched on it. Bayliss would do a good job from what I know of him.

    Good news for Bayliss I suppose. Wish these subcontinental teams would just get things sorted, I realise they want to make the best choice but really I get sick of hearing about all this.

    Interesting that the Sri Lanka list is apparently Bayliss, Oliver and Siddons and the India list is Embury and Ford. I would have thought there would have been some overlap.

    I suspect Moody saw the potential there and decided to give it a go.

    I mean, it's seriously enhanced his coaching credentials.

    Well, Moody was rejected by India over Greg Chappell and was happily snapped up by the Lankans.

    Gotta at the way that turned-out, really.

    Mind, you never know what'd have happened had it been the other way around.

    It's because most Indian cricket fans think the coach is going to be the saviour. Sadly, it looks like our players are also starting to get into that line of thinking.

    Interesting to note that Bayliss approached Sri Lanka, not the other way around. Its seems his pretty even to get the job. As a NSW fan i'm still not convinced about his abilities, he hasn't been that great for NSW and hasn't really got anything extra out of the players. But at the end of the day I rather someone who really wants the coach us.

    I really think Bayliss should be given the Job for 2 years with a clause for extension if he does well.(with an increased remuneration then).

    Of the three in that list , I would be averse for SL to even get anywhere near Siddons ...he really would be the worst and poorest choice.

    Bayliss would do well for us. And I hop they give him the all go and pick him. I am excited that he approached us and that really means he is keen . It would be stupid for SL cricket to let this Golden opportunity go past.

    As a NSW player Trevor Bayliss was a gutsy cricketer who gave it everything and I know he is well respected as a player , despite not really getting anywhere near Australian Team selection.. I love his fighting , gutsy sort of attitude, which is what we (Sri Lanka) want in our coaches... not the big spending Millionaires...

    FFS, this must win some sort of record for Most Naughtys In A Single Day! Even Cameron's not this keen.

    Nothing wrong with setting records.
