    The Pakistanis were kind last week. Beware, the Aussies are not so kind.

    First of all, we want a good match. And then we need to win it. Wish all the best for our team..!! These are even teams. But we have a slight advantage. Hope our guys will come out with positive attitudes to overcome the pressure from Aussies. We can win the match...

    Good Luck to all of you.

    Give the Aussies hell, boys. Whether we win or lose, we booze but please don't do a Bangladesh! Best of luck to Sanga and the team.

    Be careful..Aussies will use all of their physical & mental tactics to win the match !.

    Go Team!! Roar!

    I think SL should include Thisara perera instead of Kulasekara. Thisara got 5 wickets in Australia last year.

    Also selection of Mendis is doubtful for me. He is not in good form even he didn't pickup more wickets against Kenya and Canda. If he selected only one reason behind it.Still Australia hasn't much experience about him. But I don't think it would success against team like Australia.

    So I think it would be better if select Herath instead of Mendis.

    My favorite team for today's match:

    1 Upul Tharanga 2 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 3 Kumar Sangakkara (capt & wk), 4 Mahela Jayawardene, 5 Thilan Samaraweera, 6 Angelo Mathews, 7 Chamara Silva, 8 Thisara Perera, 9 Lasith Malinga, 10 Rangana Herath, 11 Muttiah Muralitharan

    Yes, but don't forget that they are on our turf and we have The Magnificent 7 with us!
