RE: Sri Lanka Cricket Discussion Thread - Bada - 05-25-2022

It's believed some players have stated unease about the morals around touring Sri Lanka in the current circumstances.

For instance, the three-match Twenty20 series will be played under lights in the capital of Colombo, in a nation where there are rolling power cuts.

It’s believed there was some recent consideration those matches could be changed to day games, but that has not yet been confirmed.

The team will also be moving across the nation for ODIs to be played in Pallekele before the Test in Galle, at a time of significant fuel shortages.

The Australian Cricketers Association is aware of the concerns of some players, but CEO Todd Greenberg said there was no suggestion its members would not tour.

“The players are very aware of the situation in Sri Lanka and it’s fair to say there is a level of discomfort around touring in conditions that contrast those faced by the people of Sri Lanka, such as rising food prices, power cuts, and fuel rationing,” Greenberg told AAP.

They are scared of what happens if a violent breaks out. The whole caring is just a bs to say avoid saying that they are scared. Hope the series doesnt get cancelled, should play in India or somewhere like that instead.

I think the series will go ahead unless something unforeseen happens in the next few days.

The T20 series should be interesting. They should make the pitch spin friendly, especially when Theekshana and Hasaranga bowling. The Aussies aren't the ones to go on the defense, so Hasaranga and Theekshana can trouble the Aussie batsmen. The Aussies also have a good pace attack and overall this is a good Aussie team. The issue is with SL's batting. The SL batsmen still do low IQ shit and on top you gotta worry about the pace from the Aussies. Not many batsmen have it to play at the international stage. Avishka and KJP are out. This is my line up. The keeping position is going to fk it up. Kusal Mendis has to come in for DG or asalanka. BR can keep to but I think he will struggle vs Theekshana. Hasaranga's line is different, so that's okay.

Nissanka
DG/KM(only cause missing a WK)
Asalanka
BR
Mathews
Shanaka
Chamika
Hasaranga
Chameera
Theekshana
Pathirana
