Although I'm looking forward to this tour, I've said it before and will say again, I have a feeling this tour is going to be a lot tougher than most people think. SL were down and out against Aus, but the way they fought back in the end would give them plenty of confidence. Dilshan/Sanga/Jayawardane are a threat to score double/triple tons in home conditions in any given test match. Their bowlers bowl really well at home - their pacers know how to exploit their conditions and spinners, including Herath and Mendis suddenly turn into Murli when bowling at home. I'm hoping for a competitive ODI series, not too optimistic about the tests though.
