Streaming | 2nd Test Melbourne 26 (Boxing Day)-30 December'
Right on the next day of Christmas, that is the Boxing Day, hostsAustraliatake
on the touring Islanders Sri Lanka in the second test match at Melbourne.
Australia lead the three test-matches series by 1-0. They beat Sri Lanka by 137
runs in Hobart.
The test match is scheduled from 26 December to 30 December, which means the
match issandwichedbetween the Christmas and the New Year.
This is the second time that Sri Lankans arestartinga test match on the Boxing
Day against Australia - the first was long time back in 1995, that resulted in a
10-wicket defeat in 1995 for the visitors. Would the Sri Lankans be keeping the
defeat in mind and kind of taking a revenge?
Mahela Jayawardene does not think so:
"I think we've been through a lot of hostile things in the past. 1995 was one
thing, and even after that. I don't think it will faze our guys at all. If
anything that might give us a little extra."
In this test, performance of Shane Watson has to be good as already fans are of
the view that if Watson doesn't perform in this test he needs to go. As for the
Sri Lanka, Malinga was not supported and recommended to be included as he is not
yet good enough for longer cricket formats.
The probable oppsing teams are:
1 Ed Cowan, 2 David Warner, 3 Phillip Hughes, 4 Shane Watson, 5 Michael
Clarke/Usman Khawaja, 6 Michael Hussey, 7 Matthew Wade (wk), 8 Mitchell Johnson,
9 Peter Siddle, 10 Nathan Lyon, 11 Jackson Bird.
Clarke's fitness remains the major question for Australia, and it appears more
likely he will be saved for future contests rather than carrying a tender
hamstring into the Test.
1 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 2 Dimuth Karunaratne, 3 Kumar Sangakkara, 4 Mahela
Jayawardene (capt), 5 Thilan Samaraweera, 6 Angelo Mathews, 7 Prasanna
Jayawardene (wk), 8 Nuwan Kulasekara, 9 Rangana Herath, 10 Shaminda Eranga, 11
The tourists appear likely to enter the match unchanged from their Hobart
combination, though Dhammika Prasad is on standby for Nuwan Kulasekara, who is
still sore after a blow to the ribs in Hobart.
There is one thing special: Kumar Sangakkara enters the match 40 short or
passing 10,000 Test runs -somethingheshouldbedesperatelylooking for tocompleteas
a gift for himself, family and the country.
So let us watch the 2nd Test match that starts on the Boxing Day 26 December at
10:30 local time, 04:30 PKTand 23:30 GMT 25 December 2012.
