Gulu Ezekiel Blog: Tri(al)-series
by
Aug 14, 2006
The Unitech Tri-series beginning in Sri Lanka on Monday also features India and South Africa. Coming just six months before the start of the World Cup, it provides an opportunity for the team think-tanks to make some experiments before they decide on their line-up for the mega-event.

South Africa are led by wicket-keeper Mark Boucher as both Graeme Smith and Jacques Kallis are unfit. They look the weakest of the three sides.

The hosts are once again favourites. They are coming out of a 2-0 whitewash of South Africa in the Test series and are virtually unbeaten at home. They are being led in ODIs for the first time by star batsman Mahela Jayawardene.

India look to be Lanka's likely opponents in the final on August 29. But they have not won an ODI tri-series since 1998. They were beaten 4-1 by the West Indies in their last series though they also have the confidence of beating the Lankans 6-1 at home late last year.

How will the three teams shape up in this crucial tournament?
