On the cricket schedule for Thursday, September 8th will be the 2nd Test series involving Sri Lanka vs. Australia. Captains Dilshan and Clarke will lead their teams into this latest battle. Fans will be able to view this game with satellite TV packages from Willow, as well as with the live streaming video feeds given online.
The 2nd Test Series gets underway on Thursday at 12:30 AM EST, or 10:00 local time from Pallekele. The first series had its share of controversy due to the dust weather conditions. A recent article from ESPNCricInfo described the surface as “a desert in the middle of the oasis.” In the latest match, weather shouldn’t be quite as much of a factor. Here’s a look at the two squads that will be facing off in the 2nd Test series:
Sri Lanka squad:
TM Dilshan*, RMS Eranga, HMRKB Herath, DPMD Jayawardene, HAPW Jayawardene†, S Randiv, RAS Lakmal, AD Mathews, BAW Mendis, NT Paranavitana, KTGD Prasad, S Prasanna, TT Samaraweera, KC Sangakkara, HDRL Thirimanne, UWMBCA Welegedara
MJ Clarke*, SR Watson, MA Beer, TA Copeland, BJ Haddin†, RJ Harris, PJ Hughes, MEK Hussey, MG Johnson, UT Khawaja, NM Lyon, SE Marsh, JL Pattinson, RT Ponting, PM Siddle, DA Warner
Australia grabbed the win in the first Test series and will look to continue momentum. The latest odds from Bodog’s website have Sri Lanka at +220 and Australia at +200, with a draw at +125.
