 Sri Lanka vs Australia, CB Series, Perth - Feb 10, 2012 

Probables:

Australia: 1 David Warner, 2 Matthew Wade (wk), 3 Ricky Ponting, 4 Michael Clarke (capt), 5 Michael Hussey, 6 David Hussey/Peter Forrest 7 Daniel Christian, 8 Ryan Harris, 9 Mitchell Starc, 10 Xavier Doherty, 11 Clint McKay.

Sri Lanka: 1 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 2 Upul Tharanga, 3 Kumar Sangakkara (wk), 4 Mahela Jayawardene (capt), 5 Dinesh Chandimal, 6 Angelo Mathews, 7 Lahiru Thirimanne/Rangana Herath, 8 Thisara Perera, 9 Nuwan Kulasekara, 10 Lasith Malinga, 11 Dhammika Prasad.

After the first defeat in this series vs India, what kind of changes would you guys like to see for the next ODI vs Aussies?

6-5 Combination rather than batting heavy 7-4

The team clearly will need services from a spinner if not two and will have to strengthen their bowling a lot if they are to restrict teams like Australia and India. Would except Thisara or Thirimanne to be dropped in the addition of Sachithra Senanayake(who might be able to get some bounce from his off-spinners).

Probable team.
1.U Tharanga
2.TM Dilshan
3.Kumar Sangakkara
4.Dinesh Chandimal
5.Mahela Jayawardene
6.Angelo Mathews
7.Thisara Perera/Lahiru Thirimanne
8.Sachithra Senanayake
9.Nuwan Kulasekera
10.Lasith Malinga
11.Dhammika Prasad

6-5 Combination

1. Upul
2. Dilshan
3. Sanga
4. Chandimal
5. Mahela
6. Angelo
7. Maharoof
8. Nuwan K
9. Herath
10.Lasith
11.Prasad

I think we should give Maharoof a chance at the early stage of the tournament and see how he goes with his form and how he adopts to the conditions. Because i think he is a really good all rounder that can swing the ball.

They should replace Prasad

They should replace Prasad with Maharoof who can hit the ball a long way too, no?

Herath will also be a good addition.

Time to bring some change. Maharoof deserves a chance. He is someone who has always given hope to me while he bats. You can predict Angelo might fail, but Maharoof is someone whom we can bank on. He'll contribute somehow.
