Good lineup...

was thinking of listing my own but it would be an exact copy of yours :) only place i am not sure of is whether we should go with Ajantha or Akila as the main spinner

@ Slion - Yes, Aussies never

@ Slion - Yes, Aussies never played Akila before, but it can be anyone of them.. Herath,Ajantha or Akila. lets hope Chandimal plays the Sydney ODI

SL must drop Tharanga at any

SL must drop Tharanga at any cost for the SCG match, his dismissal was over shadowed today. caught in the slips again batting at 6 is unacceptable.

Thirimanne
Chandimal
Mathews
Kusal
Tharanga
Thisara
Kulasekara
Malinga
Herath

SL batting is the weak link , so no point of playing an extra part time spinner(new rules always against them ) who only bowls two overs per a match and looks clueless against the quickies. yes it is the Sydney pitch but duh! it's not the galle 5th day pitch . so we should drop jeevan

@ SDF - Don't Think they will

@ SDF - Don't Think they will drop Jeevan for the SCG match, SCG will take spin and Jeevan played for the Sydney sixers in the BBL. he is the local boy for this match.

that's crazy if jeevan get

@Daniel that's crazy if jeevan get picked because he's a Sydney sixers player ? he played only 3 games in there i guess.. you can't be a local boy because of 3 t20 games , dilshan,herath bowled more overs than him in Sydney so they are local boys then :P , plus he don't have this fielding restriction to play with in T20s.SCG is not a rank turner ,it's just spin bit more comparing to other aussi pitches....we need a batsman more than a extra bowler so lets see for me no point of playing jeevan .

I know that SCG pitch is

I know that SCG pitch is different from GABBA and wud start to spin in 2nd innings, but....... Aussie batters must be low on confidence right now being bowled out for low scores in 2 consecutive matches, batting first. So shouldn't Mahela(if he wins di toss) send Aussies into bat and exploit the low confidence?

Hate to see him repeat the mistake Sanga made in WC FINAL! :-/

btw HISTORY waiting to be made tomorrow. They have da chance to be the 1st ever team to beat Aus in two consecutive bilateral series!
