This is great! This Aussie team has really won over many Sri Lankan fans, unlike Ponting's team and Taylor's side in the past.

Definitely Hilal ! This Aussie side, which is captained by Michael Clarke is totaly different to the past teams, considering the spirit they shown...Even players of this side applaud when an opposition player makes a hundred, which is indeed rare from an Aussie team !!..I saw that through out the series starting from the T20 hundred by Dilshan...Also haven't seen any bad mouthing yet from this side...Michael Clarke, who himself is a gentleman too, unlike most of the past Aussie cricketers...Hats off to this side and if this is the way Aussies going to play Cricket, we Sri Lankans will always love you and support you whenever you play against other countries !!!

Previous Aussie sides got a lot of bad press because they were a) very good and b) had egos to match.

They also at one point captained by a Steven Waugh who, lest it be forgotten, has done more humanitarian work than most cricketers put together.

This good press is simply because Clarke isn't as dogged as Ponting. But it is the later that the game will remember for a long ass time :)

WELL DONE AUSSIE. CRICKET TEAM. CLARKEY AND THE TEAM IS GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION NOT ONLY IN CRICKET ALSO IN SOCIAL WORK. THEY HAVE ALREADY WON THE HEARTS OF SRILANKANS BY INVOLVING IN SO MANY SOCIAL ACTIVITIES. THIS IS HOW THE CRICKET TEAMS SHOULD BEHAVE WHEN THEY VISIT ANOTHER COUNTRY, BECAUSE THEY ARE THE TRUE AMBASSADORS TO SPREAD THE GOOD-WILL AMONG COUNTRIES. CLARKEY AND THE TEAM HAS ALREADY WON AND RUN DEEP INTO THE HEARTS OF ALL THE SRILANKANS IRRESPECTIVE OF AGE. GOO LUCK BOYS KEEP IT UP.

I love how the Australians have taken time off their busy schedule to do things like this. :)

That is how Aussies are. When they do something they do it properly. Good example for many local administrators.

This is an amazing exhibition of compassionate hearts of the visitors, now it is very hard to call them as visitors because now they are so close to us. Australia always stands for a good cause and love to see them doing such wonderful contribution to the Sri Lankan future.
