Yeah , Canberra at least deserves a ODI , c'mon even Tasmania get a couple , if Canberra still had all their home grown talent , Bevan , Haddin , Higgs , Karpinnen , Cunningham , Anthony Stuart etc they would actually be a very competitive side these days.

Tasmania will get tests in the future for sure, they have nothing to worry about. They have a first class side, they get their 8-10 games a season, not to mention a couple of ODI's. I dont think the tasmanian people should be too upset.
They could live in Canberra, where we dont even have a FC side now, never had a test match, never had a one day international outside of the world cup. The best cricket australia could do was a match in april (football season) of aus A vs South africa A.
So overall, i dont think the Tasmanians have too much to whinge about.
Back to the topic at hand, Id like to see more cricket played at the teltra stadium, it seems that the SCG simply cant hold enough people for the major test match anymore. I would think that the first 2 days of the Sydney test would attract 70-80 thousand if held there.
