So we are back Down Under for yet another series. The last time Sri Lanka visited Australia for a cricket tour was in 2007. In that time we have played India many many times but a tour to Australia is a rare thing.
As rare as a tour there, is winning there. Let's be real. The Aussies have kicked our asses a number of times, and it's hard to expect a change this time.
The Sri Lanka cricket team departed for Australia on October 17 and have already arrived there. They play Queensland in a warm up game on October 22 and play the first official match on October 31.
This is Muttiah Muralitharan's last tour to Australia, and the focus is already on him.
