Sri Lanka have faced a daunting test against Australia at their Olympic stadium in Christchurch, New Zealand. At least four of them have faced Tests before. 여성 마사지Their captain, Ricky Ponting, believes they are unlikely to be as quick as they have been in recent years. His side were 5 for 45 with just one wicket when taking on Australia in Christchurch on the back of two rain-interrupted Tests and one Test in Johannesburg. Ponting has been keen to emphasise that t모나코 카지노he team need to have an identity as the team who won the T20 World Cup after losing the Ashes in 2006.
It is one thing for the bowlers in the team to be fast and aggressive and to score runs against spin. Their opponents are going to need to be quick and patient to hold on against spin. Sri Lanka and Australia will play a three-day one-day series in late May.
