    Yes, there is talk that the selectors are planning to include him in the Ashes team because of his ability to swing the ball.

    Bit surprised that we are batting, not many overs bowled and big lead. Lost 3 quick wickets but hard to see us losing this one, bat while we have batsmen, hopefully not have to use bowlers, two days after this, see how the weather is Monday.

    Australia have declared at 3/196 with Khawaja finishing on 101 not out and Head 59 not out

    Sri Lanka need 516 to win, Weather could play a big part over the next day and a bit

    Head is consistent now, that's very encouraging.

    Sri Lanka survive to be 0/17 at the close of play, Rain forecast for the next 2 days so things could get interesting

    Great 1st session for Australia picking up 5 wickets, Starc on fire again with 4/22 to go with his 5/54 in the 1st innings !!

    Hopefully we can wrap this up in the next session before rain hits

    Sri Lanka all out for 149 with Starc taking 5/46 so he takes 10/100 in the match

    2-0 series win

    Interesting to note that Lyon is getting ever so close to Lillee on the all time leading wicket takers list

    Also, Starc has moved past MacGill and may well surpass Merv Hughes, Peter Siddle and the great Clarrie Grimmett in his next test
