Let's not beat about the stunted flora: Sri Lanka is a pissweak Test team, and yet they are belting us.
Rod Marsh has given up on Australia playing spin on the subcontinent. In other words, he's belatedly come to the same conclusion we came to at least 5 years ago. But while we are boneheads on a blog with rock all influence, Marsh is an Aussie cricket grandee and instead of an exasperated "What more can we do" should have the odd idea. If I could offer Rod a word in his shell-like, I would suggest we win the toss and bat first.
Interesting that Australia have been filth on the under-continent, but haven't lost a Test in Sri Lanka since 1999.
