Going to be an interesting series with Australia's weak batting, Pakistan don't normally turn up in Australia though so that should be enough for us to have a series win coupled with our fairly strong bowling attack.

Sidenote why are people comparing Travis Head's potential to a young Michael Clarke ? Lol.

Didn't they have to pretty much play an entire 2nd string bowling lineup against us? They were back to full strength or close to against SA from memory.
The Lankan pace line-up? From memory it was mostly first choice for the first Test, one out injured maybe; but all second choice in Canberra.

Pre-game be like:

We can't bust heads like we used to, but we have our ways. One trick is to tell 'em stories that don't go anywhere - like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Give me five bees for a quarter, you'd say.

Now where were we? Oh yeah: the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...
