 If you go by form alone, then Sri Lanka have to be considered slight favourites, but in the sub-continent, pitches and conditions are different and will be spin friendly - so really its down to the classic case of any team that plays well on that one day will win.

 I think there is no need to say much as results speak for themselves. We won all the matches on the tour and the players gelled well to give this good performance.

 It was a pressure game for us, Everyone thought we are a far better side and when you are favourites or people think or talk about you being a good side, it creates pressure. But that pressure in a way gave us a boost when we walked in, and picking up Chris Gayle early gave us belief that we can do it straight away.

 Both openers know they have not fired yet, but I'm not worried because there is no problem with their techniques, they were in good form coming into the World Cup, so I am sure they will come good soon,

 All you can do is just smile about it. I thought we did our best. What else can you do? I don't think we went wrong anywhere. We did a good job, but you've just got to give credit to the Australians for the way they batted. They kept the momentum with them all the way, especially Cameron White's innings.

 I thought that set the tone, and then Hussey did the real damage. I still can't believe it. It was an unbelievable innings; you just don't see many like that around. I can't really blame anyone. I thought we bowled pretty well and batted outstandingly. It's just that the Australians were too good for us today.
