    It seems a few players are missing from team selection list.
    Like Jayasuriya and Dippenaar in the batting department for SriLanka and SA.
    Is there a reason for that?

    I would assume that it's because those two players were not included in the squads for the last test series both of the teams played.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Excatly, we go off the last series that the country played in as a guide, if the squad changes when it's announced we will add/remove the relevent players and you will be given plenty of time to make changes if you wish to.

    Why is Andrew Symmonds a batsman not an all rounder?

    That is a strange one, since he's definitely an ODI all rounder, and is only in the Test side because of his bowling.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    We'll make this change after the current series' have finished.

    We can't make it now due to the managers have selected him as a Batsman.

    Strange. I always saw Symonds as a batsmen and a part time bowler. Kind of like how Tendulkar or sehwag.

    I wouldn't have called Symonds an all-rounder twelve months ago but with all the bowling he's doing these days he probably is one now.

    If anyone else cares to agree/disagree feel free to post your thoughts.

    He's definitely one now to be fair - bowls very regularly in ODI and is only a Test player because of his bowling.
