    Oram hasn't been successful in T20Is but at least he's a useful lower-order batsman, is used to these conditions and has bowled well in Sri Lanka recently. Guys like Ellis shouldn't be close to the team.

    Think Mike is referring to SLPL

    Edit: PEWS beats me

    Which counts for about as much as Rob Nicol's 80 he scored in the hotel lobby after practice was cancelled yesterday.

    T20 in Sri Lanka isn't relevant to a T20 game in Sri Lanka? Nice logic there mate. If we picked the team based solely on the T20 world cup there'd be about six players.

    The Waterpolo tournament: AKA New Zealand Tour of Sri Lanka

    One of the worst times to have a tour in SL. The whole country is getting heavy rains in November. "Neelam" cyclone has made it worse, with rainfalls getting up to 500mm in last two days.

    T20 already washed off. 5 ODIs and two tests to be washed off.

    I played for 20 years in the Lankan team, I did not have any problems as a Tamil - Muralidaran

    1st ODI gone. This does seem like a scheduling debacle.

    I was gonna suggest this thread be stickied, but maybe there's no point.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Can we send Latham and Milne back to NZ to get some domestic cricket?
    What a waste of time.

    Neelam is gone now, but the evening showers will continue. This is the inter-monsoonal period of SL. Test matches will be in abetter state. But ODIs I don't want to talk about.
