Yep, that's the XI I expected when I saw the 13 named. Still not sure who will partner Finch at the top or the order though - probs Haddin, but I would try Khawaja or Hughes for sure.
Cricinfo is saying Hughes.

Haha that's nonsense. I'd almost be tempted to call SL favourites for this match, tbh. They've been excellent in LO cricket down here in the last few years.
Yeah same or very close to even. One of Finch or Hughes needs to make a decent score for Australia to post a competitive total IMO.
I like SL's middle to lower order, Mathews, Mendis, Perera and Kulasekera, they are all big hitters. SL really needs to target the 10 overs that will need to be bowled by Maxwell and Dussey
Yeah what the hell? SL stone-cold favourites for this game, personally. Will be backing Malinga to take a bag against this top-order.
Isnt that batting allrounder MJ playing? Game over SL tbh.
Will be disappointed if we lose this. We're a much much better team in the shorter formats.
I'm officially boycotting this "Australia B-Team" and congratulate SL on an excellent start to the series

EDIT: btw, I work only 800m from the MCG and yet I still won't be going without Warner, Watson, Clarke, Hussey and Wade....I did that at a T20i last year and it just didn't feel like Australia playing
Also, I've had a few wines so CA can go and get ...........
