    According to the coach Graham Ford, Sri Lanka are not prepared for this series.. so that shows how confident Sri Lanka are about this series..

    Sri Lanka have never been prepared before an overseas tour.. plus their captain has a tendency of going AWOL on overseas tours...but this time considering Pattinson is ruled out and the rest are ordinary without him..he might just decide to stay and boost his average a little bit.

    I meant more I don't think he will get much of a chance to bowl even, so will be a bit of a waste of space. Probably should play him anyway but I think you could chuck another bat in there for all the use he will get. Not that it would happen, and it would confuse matters regarding ponting succession but you know what I mean

    those little sri lankans are a bargain at that price
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Entirely justified IMO. They have one frontline seamer bowling on what's either an alleged greentop or a historical road.

    Picking rain affected bore-draw.

    Has the Aussie batting order been locked in yet?

    I reckon now is the time to settle the order for the Ashes

    Cowan
    Warner
    Hughes
    Clarke
    Watson
    Hussey
    Wade

    This way Watto gets to open against the 2nd new ball

    Looks increasingly certain that it'll be Watson-Clarke-Hussey as the order.

    I suspected as much....but Clarke at 4 is much better for Australia.....unless all he cares about is the best ever average at 5 that he currently holds....or maybe mentally he really can't bat anywhere but 5

    SL seamers are somewhat underrated IMO. In the right conditions Kula and co can be a handful.

    Why would we move our best batsmen from a position that he finds most comfortable to one he performs terribly in
