Their seamers moved the ball around at Adelaide Oval and while the Gabba has a reputation for providing assistance as well, it is as well as a venue at which giant totals are regularly accumulated in one-day cricket. Sri Lanka have never beaten Australia in a one-day international at the Gabba, and going 2-1 down in a five-match contest would be far from ideal.
In Watson’s absence, the selectors decided a seam-bowling allrounder was necessary at the Gabba and Moises Henriques was called up for his first ODI since late 2009 but after being struck on the hand at training two times over the past days, they was sent for scans and could be forced to sit out. “He’s definitely got his fingers crossed and hoping the scan comes back clear, as all of us are, because I do know he is looking forward to his opportunity,” Clarke said of Henriques. “He got hit yesterday when bowling. I actually straight drove back and they got his finger on it so it was a tiny bit sore but fine. Then while batting in the nets today they got hit again.”
It was at the Gabba last summer that Lahiru Thirimanne was at the centre of controversy when he was mankaded by R Ashwin in a one-day international, only to be recalled by India’s acting captain Virender Sehwag. Fortunately for Thirimanne, he’s only attracted attention on the current tour of Australia for his run-making, which included 91 in the Sydney Check as well as a maiden ODI century in Adelaide on Sunday. Thirimanne is a fine stroke-maker and with Kumar Sangakkara unavailable due to injury, he is quickly becoming of the most prized wickets for Australia’s bowlers on this tour.
Sri Lanka vs Australia 3rd ODI 2013 Prediction & Review
Sri Lanka vs Australia 3rd ODI Match 2013
Sri Lanka Tour to Australia Series 2012-13
Date: Friday 18 January 2013 | 18-01-2013
Time: (13:20 local | 03:20 GMT | 08:20 PKT)
Venue: at Brisbane
Matthew Wade is back in Australia’s side after being rested from the first matches and in the coursework of his time off, his wicketkeeping was severely criticised by Ian Healy in the coursework of a radio interview. The fact that Brad Haddin made runs and kept sharply, including stunning catch, in the coursework of the first ODIs will only intensify the attention on Wade’s glovework in the coursework of his return.
If Henriques is ruled out it will mean Ben Cutting & Glenn Maxwell will vie for his place. The fact that the selectors specifically wanted an additional seamer, though, suggests they would likely select Cutting, who was originally not part of the squad for this game, but may yet get the chance to play an international at his home ground. Dinesh Chandimal remains in some doubt after missing Sunday’s match due to a hamstring issue. If they is declared fit, the selectors could bring him back in a straight swap for the wicketkeeper Kushal Perera, although another option would be to drop the out-of-form opener Upul Tharanga.
“The break has been great for my body. It has given me every chance to have a lot of rehab in regards to my hamstring. It has given me a week of mentally as well, to refresh.”Michael Clarke
“We have to look forward to winning all three games. We have clicked at the right point so it’s a good positive for the whole team.”Angelo Mathews
Pitch and conditions:
The weather forecast indicates a fine and sunny day with a high temperature of 33C. There should be plenty of runs available on a good batting pitch. In the past three ODIs at the Gabba, the teams batting first have scored 288, 289 and 321. “In my opinion this is the best one-day wicket in the world,” Clarke said on the eve of the match. “It has beautiful pace and bounce for the bowlers, but as you get in as a batter there’s no better place to bat.”
