    ***Official*** Sri Lanka in Australia T20s 2017

    So the little Lankans have started their series..

    PM's XI 61/3 (8.1/20 ov) v Sri Lanka at Canberra on RIGHT NOW!

    1st T20I: Australia v Sri Lanka at Melbourne on Feb 17, 2017

    2nd T20I: Australia v Sri Lanka at Geelong on Feb 19, 2017

    3rd T20I: Australia v Sri Lanka at Adelaide on Feb 22, 2017


    Australia have picked a largely development XI but I'm sure I'm not the only one who is most looking forward to seeing the oldest guy in the squad, Michael Klinger in action. Also, one of the most important things to note this series, is the weather in Geelong.

    Sri Lanka won the PM's XI match by 5 wickets, and I did not even remember that the match had been on until this morning.

    Tharanga's 47* edged out Dickwella's 47 for the SL top score.

    Is that a higher score, or just a better one?

    I know these games are kind of an afterthought in the build-up to the India series, but I'm absolutely stoked for Klinger and hope he goes well.

    good start for us but obviously its a PM XI so have to take that into account. Our squad looks better this series and its nice to see Kapugedara, Siriwardena ,Shanaka and Munaweera back in the squad. let s see what happens..Malinga is also back but not sure how fit he is..

    Mods, you going to sticky?

    Timmy Paine better not bat in the top 4 in this lineup unless we are 2 for 2 or something from the first over. Basically if we do well, he should be the guy that continues to drop down the order IMO.

    I like the Finch Klinger opening combo but with JL as coach there is a decent chance he'll want a LH+RH combo as he often implemented this tactic with the Scorchers.

    can't wait for Sportsbet social media's take on Niroshan Dickwella's name.

    And if you thought no one cared about the last ODI series . . .


    seriously when does this game start though?

    edit: 7:40 tonight apparently. Who am I kidding, I'll probably watch the whole thing.

    If a bi-lateral 2020 series of insignificance takes place in one part of the world, does a test fan die on the other side?

    Seriously though, I've seen many people call the scoop shot Dickwella plays the dickscoop. I am not entirely sure what to make of that yet.

    I liked the look of Vikum S in that PM XI's game. Malinga, potbelly and all, still seems fairly potent in this format.

    Good chance for SL to get a win or two on the board before the BD series. I feel like they've finally got the balance in their 2020 side right.

    I really wish Johnson was playing in this series. It would be a perfect situation - he'd bring star power, wouldn't have the expectations or commitment of other international cricket and would be a good influence on the younger blokes.

    CA missed a trick by not securing his services.

    Good to see Kualsekara back!

    Also this looks like a 140-150 wicket IMO

    Sanjaya's action is like David Johnson or Kamrul Islam.
