Wha is your 1st choice XI for the first ODI
With this exact batting order
I wonder what the wicket will be like in Pallekele? I'm sure they'll pick Fernando over Pradeep.
We will lose this series our cricketers are numb-nuts and getting dumberer....lolz..take a look at Sanga and Dilshan..both playing like school boys.
I think Lanka has good chance to win the series in the presence of stars like Mahela and Malinga, though pakistani team is always unpredictable either.
It has been very dry in Pallekelle over the last few months. Of course it started raining yesterday ! However the showers are short and sharp.
I think the wicket will turn and this is not good for us.
we need another spinner / allrounder too many batsmen. I would consider one of the Mendis's.
1st ODI - won toss and batting first.
