The head of the pitch making at the SSC ground, Mr.de Zoysa, reckons the Aussies are highly annoyed to be trailed by 2 games to none and just to defend themselves, they are blaming everything.

The Aussies have had a lot of things to lament during the test series so far. First of all, they are unhappy that the tracks they have been asked to practice on have a lot of green tinge on them and they can’t be ideally prepared for the games practicing on those tracks as the tracks on which the games are played happen to be hundred per cent barren and behave totally differently to how the green tracks behave.

Apart from that, in Colombo where they are presently playing the third game, they have not been given the permission to have their fielding, catching and wicket-keeping drills in the area they wanted and they have had to do that on other side and they haven’t appreciated that.
