    Just pick the Australian players out of the BBL finalists.

    It's T20. They're playing for the Who Gives a **** Cup, aren't they?

    I think in our ODI squad, Dan Christian and Callum Ferguson should be getting more of a look in

    If I have understood things correctly, the match was called off due to unfair conditions.... That can't be true, can it?

    unsafe. the outfield didn't dry = slippery = unsafe
    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

    Also the umpires held concerns that they'd have to change the ball after every over.

    Really? Not that this doesn't make sense and it's not a valid reason, but where'd you hear this?

    stu macgill stu macgill ‏@scgmacgill

    right up front- I'm on the SCG trust, so I'm far from impartial. BUT- CA/CNSW are only offering 2:1 tix at T20 coz they've sold so few

    stu macgill ‏@scgmacgill

    @scgmacgill Absolutely nothing to do with last night's match being called off due to poor weather. desperate attempt to boost ticket sales

    boom

    Makes one wonder.....

    Yeah I think it was a complete farce, If Australia were in Sri Lanka's position I don't for a minute think that the game wouldn't have went ahead with a reduced chase.

    SL deserve to have this series in the bag, not having to win the final game to win the series.

    Geez I am a dinosaur for thinking that, when you are ranked 4th in the world, guys should play in live rubbers at the peak of Summer.

    You, by contrast, are so cutting edge for thinking they should be rested. You are really on the razor's edge mate.

    I think we have seen where pulling blokes in and pulling blokes out has gotten us

    So cutting edge, you are

    Even M Clarke admits rotation is hurting....but apparently you know better

    Siddle's hammy was only metioned after the loss

    Contemporaneous evidence is always the most reliable

    Do you want to see Michael Clarke playing two contextless ODIs or a full Test series in India?

    Not trying to be 'cutting edge' so much as prioritising Test cricket. No sense having players go down with preventable injuries in the lead up to India and back-to-back Ashes series.

    If Clarke played 2 more games on his semi-injured hamstring and then broke down in the first Test, everyone would riot for him not being rested before hand. And rightfully so, it would be utterly ridiculous. No sense in risking injury for our top players ahead of such a big 12 months of cricket.
