Sorry but personally I don't have much confidence in this so called young team. The only plus point is that we're playing in home soil, that should be converted as a huge advantage. Lets see how they perform.

Want to see post WC 2011 press conference from Aravinda. Waiting for it.

we dont have any advantage of playing on home soil as all 3 pitches are new and the team doesnt have much practice on these pitches.The pitches itself are 'not cricket friendly'.Anyways lets home for the best.

If the wickets are like Dambulla we are finished! West Indies series is going to be important. We can see how the wickets will behave. Imagine if we lose WI series 3-0??? Ha ha! Aravinda will have to change the squad quickly and beg for Vaas and Sanath to come back.
