Spinner Nathan Lyon was retained in the side announced by skipper Michael Clarke on Thursday, with Peter Siddle, Mitchell Starc and Ben Hilfenhaus making up the pace bowling unit for the match.Australia have dropped Mitchell Johnson for the first check against Sri Lanka and chosen seamers for the match on what is expected to be a lively wicket at the Bellerive Oval this week as the tourists are without Lasith Malinga.Such has been Australia’s record in head-to-head contests that it is virtually impossible to expect Sri Lanka to pose a serious challenge in the three-Test series beginning in Hobart. Although Sri Lanka lost both Tests on their last tour of Australia in 2007-08, they put up a serious fight in the second Check before going down by 96 runs. Australia have been the only team to regularly win in Sri Lanka – in their last series in Sri Lanka, Australia won 3-0 and 1-0.
Following the retirement of top players, Australia have had to work much harder for their success but are still a force to think with at home, Since 2007, they have lost home series (two times to South Africa and one time against England) but have a 11-1 record at home against major subcontinent teams (excludes Bangladesh). Left-armer Johnson, the 2009 ICC Cricket player of the Year, played his first Check in a year in the 309-run defeat to South Africa in Perth last week but was named 12th man for the Hobart check, which begins on Friday.
