ED JACKSON : AAP
DISMISSED for 273 on the opening
day of the first Test against Sri
Lanka, Australia aren’t prepared to
throw in the towel just yet.
Michael Hussey, Australia’s best
performer on Wednesday with a
battling 95, said the team believes
their score could prove a good total
on a dry and spin-friendly wicket
in Galle which will only become
tougher to bat on.
The 36-year-old was the only
player to get over 50 for the
tourists on a day when Trent
Copeland and Nathan Lyon were
presented with their Baggy Green
caps before play started.
But Hussey believed it will not
be until the end of day two when
Australia have a good idea of just
how useful their total is.
“It will depend on how tomorrow
goes but I think we’ve got a good
score on the board there,” the left-
handed batsman told reporters.
“But it will depend on how well
we will bowl tomorrow to see how
good a score it is.
“I certainly think we’re right in the
game there’s no question about that.”
The standard with the ball for the
series has already been set high
by the home team, particularly
by experienced left-arm spinner
The 33-year-old took three wickets,
all of them experienced top-order
players, to put Sri Lanka on top of
the match early.
He dismissed Shane Watson for 22
with his first ball and then removed
captain Michael Clarke for 23 and
Ricky Ponting for 44 in the middle
session to finish with 3-54.
But it wasn’t just Sri Lanka’s
vaunted spinners getting amongst
the wickets, with Chanaka
Welegedara (1-61) clean bowling
Usman Khawaja (21)... Read more
Players commit to Port’s future
PORT Adelaide’s off-field success continues
as more players signing up to continue
with the club.
Justin Westhoff and promising utility
Andrew Moore are the latest with Westhoff
agreeing to the terms of a new three-year
deal, while Moore will remain at Alberton
for at least another two years.
Westhoff and Moore join defenders Jackson
Trengove and Alipate Carlile in committing
to the Power in the past fortnight.
Moore, who was selected with pick No. 9
in the 2009 draft, was a chance to return to
Melbourne, but yesterday the 20-year-old
denied he considered leaving.
“It was quite an easy decision for me to stay
on at Port Adelaide,” Moore said.
“I spoke to my parents to see what they had
to say and they backed me in.
“I’ve loved the club from day dot and am
looking forward to the future.”
Moore, the younger brother... Read more
