You know something? This total negativity from the media when the Sri Lankan team tours Australia is quite amazing!! Why don't you give us a break? We've got at least five world-class players in the side, and they aren't going to roll over and die. You can bet the Aussies are going to get a good run for their money. After all, their side isn't all that hot - apart from Clarke and Hussey, and their bowling is laughable. Let's talk again in February!!
