    Two Tests? That it? Is there any point to this series?

    Anyway 1-1.

    Murali to pick up about 15-20 wickets.

    SL should win the First test easily against a depleted SA without Pollock/Kallis .

    So I therefore predict 1-0 to SL . SL batsmen to find some form finally at home , I suspect.

    Kapugedera, Vandort, Tharanga to the fore !!

    South Africa just named their squad:

    *Graeme Smith
    Ashwell Prince
    Hashim Amla
    Nicky Boje
    +Mark Boucher
    AB de Villiers
    Boeta Dippenaar
    Herschelle Gibbs
    Andrew Hall
    Andre Nel
    Makhaya Ntini
    Shaun Pollock
    Dale Steyn
    Thandi Tshabalala

    Looking forward to see how Tshabalala, apparently his a pretty good spinner, but i doubt South Africa will play two spinners.

    Well done Mr Tshabalala for his inclusion into the national team. Nicely deserved tbh. Good to see that an offspin bowler will be playing a part in this series as well

    Go out on a little bit of a limb, SL 2-0, fairly easily.

    I still maintain the thought that South Africa will not lose a test series (until 2008), so South Africa to win 1-0. Gibbs to score a bucket load.

    looks like galle wont be a venue for the series, i was hoping Muralis playground will be back in business. Last time he played South Africa there he got 13 wickets, he got all 11 batsmen out combined from both innings, Jayasuriya smashed a hundred (96 not out at the end of the 1st seesion, i think ) and Sl won by an innings.

    I love Tshabalala. He is young and rips the ball. He is the only finger spinner I can think of in SA that actually turns the ball.

    I doubt he will play as he made his name in Pro20 cricket and is not developed enough for Tests but the tour should be great in aiding the mentioned required development.

    Sl should be really buoyed by their performances in two of the three tests in England, and all the ODIs, and I think these could be good test matches. Anyone know if they'll be screened in England at all?

    Itís not going to be on Sky Sports but one of the Asian networks could have it.
