Sri Lanka squad

Australia squad
MJ Clarke*, DE Bollinger, XJ Doherty, BJ Haddin†, JW Hastings, DJ Hussey, MEK Hussey, MG Johnson, B Lee, SE Marsh, JL Pattinson, RT Ponting, SPD Smith, SR Watson
Wooo Steve Smith dropped! Shaun Marsh in.

Therefore our team tonight has 11 players not 10.
And Marsh is opening so we are another 10% better team without Haddin opening.


Now we will lose no doubt. :))
Sri Lanka should look to be steady..... a score over 250 can make it difficult for sri Lanka.
Most experienced pair in for the sri lanka...... I feel that Australia will roll them over here.
It is hard to escape the conclusion that this is a better Test bowling line up (Lee, Bollinger, MJ, Doherty) than the one we are going to field in the Tests (Siddle, MJ, Harris, Beer).
If Sri lanka wants a defend able score......... these two must stay there till 22 - 24 overs.
Watson averaging 43 with the bat 29 with the ball, top all rounder.
Don't worry guys, Sri Lanka will be back in top form after they've played Pakistan. :D
Methinks this might be a short one. Barring a miracle.
LOL at the select few PPers saying Sri Lanka could win 5-0 or 4-1 and go to number one. Sri Lanka are not a top side.

I think some people just don't get that they're overly dependent on the top four batsmen (who cannot succeed in every game), and that they are essentially rubbish without Murali.
