  • First impressions

    Stuart Clark has developed a liking for the early breakthrough

  • Sri Lanka Test proves to be a turn off

    Cricket Australia has denied charges of complacency after the first Test of the summer attracted disappointing crowds and TV viewing figures

  • Atapattu to stay on Australia tour

    The Sri Lanka selectors have kept Marvan Atapattu on the tour of Australia to minimise disruption for the team, but will take "the necessary disciplinary action" when they return home

  • No underestimating Murali

    Australia have not downgraded the threat of Muttiah Muralitharan despite delivering a significant obstacle to his hopes of breaking Shane Warne's Test wicket-taking record in Hobart

  • Failing to walk the talk

    Sri Lanka's tactics in the first Test were conservative and they were beaten easily despite the public mutterings of self-belief, writes Peter English
