    Yeah no doubt ****. Obviously Ponting didn't say that. Just thought he would've at least been on the ground.

    haha

    I ask because SL's top order really struggled against genuine swing bowlers in the NZ series.

    Of course, being that they pretty much never play outside the subcontinent, they're likely to struggle against seam bowlers as well...

    Ponting would've been on the field when Theo took the catch. Was there for the final wicket as per this photo.

    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

    On stand-by: Lahiru Thirimanne, Thisara Perera, Jeevan Mendis, Akila Dananjaya, Ajantha Mendis
    Pirana? Really?

    Dilshan
    Karunaratne
    Mathews
    Sanga
    Mahela
    Samaramaramaraweera
    Prasaana/Chandimal
    Kulasekara
    Herath
    Eranga
    Welegedara

    Pirana was atrocious in the series just gone, and Mathews was easily the best Sri Lankan batsman against the moving ball, so get him to three. Sanga isn't in good nick and SL needs to break up the collapsererers. Prasaana is a gun keeper and he scored a good ton in England iirc but overall from what I've seen of him he throws it away too easily and Sri Lanka could do with a bit more batting atm. Randiv gets dropped for a pacer because its Aus and he is dead weight anyway. I don't know what the other spinners are like so maybe they have a gun up their sleeve to play.

    Anyway, hope SL smash you Aussie ****s in this series.

    2-0 Australia. Don't think their bowling is good enough to trouble us.
    5-0

    My team is already locked in

    Warner
    Hughes
    Khawaja
    Watson
    Clarke
    Hussey
    Wade
    Johnson
    Starc
    Siddle
    Lyon

    But I know Cowan will play ahead of Hughes or Khawaja

    Hasn't Thisara been pretty consistent for SL in all forms for a while? I struggle to see how they can justify Nuwan Pradeep ahead of him.

    Would go with this XI, TBH:

    Dilshan
    Chandimal
    Sangakkara
    Jayawardene
    Samaraweera
    Mathews
    Jayawardene
    Kulasekera
    Eranga
    Herath
    Welegedera/Perera


    In doing a quick cricinfo search, it appears my perception of Perera was created by one good innings with the ball and limited overs form. Still better than Pradeep in my book.

    Yeah, he did. Few boys sledged him about that. Would be a far more effective sledge if he hadn't have held one.

    Or if he wasn't facing out quicks like he was batting with a stump at the time.

    Thisara Perea done nothing of note in test matches. Nuwan Pradeep has quite a bit of pace, and by reports can touch 150k now. SL will need a bowler who can bowl short sharp spells, to compelemt tight medium pace of Kule, Eranga and Mathews. But the minus point is we don't need both Prasad and Nuwan Pradeep.

    Will be interesting to see if Samaraweera can put aside his recent battles with black magic and be a force in this series.
