    So long as they don't just automatically replace Dev players!

    Shouldn't the FC warm-up matches be three- or four-day rather than five?

    What are the Sri Lanka A side / BCCSL XI going to be like?

    How about a game against Sinhalese SC, Tamil Union or Nondescripts rather than SL A and BCCSL so often?

    And a minor point on the Grounds - What happened to Galle? Dambulla wouldn't get a Test Match, and there are (at least) two grounds in Colombo (SSC & RPS) that deserve tests.

    Sorry to be picky Reuben, but I like obsessive attention to detail

    So my near 3 consecutive 50s counted for nothing. Damn.

    Just to let everyone know that the pitches will be typical Sri Lankan pitches - flat batting strips. I can just see Cloete licking his lips and Lucky Eddie holding his sore back........
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Well thanks for pointing that out , now i will make sure i will include those..

    and dambulla has just been chosen as a suprise test venue !

    As for the SL'A' squad and the presidents board squad they are the squads made up of ppl that played in those teams when Nz toured s'lanka ,

    As for the 3 day 4day question , i made it 5 day just for a change so that our players get more preparation !

    The tour is expected to be post-poned until Season 2. This should begin (along with the Dev League) on the 20th or thereabout of this month.
