I had a chance when I was in Australia over Christmas to watch the Sri
Lankan side play the Aussies in several matches.  They really are an exciting
team, with several free ***s and some quality bowlers.  They are a little
thin, though, so if their top-order batsmen don't really come through,
there's not much to back them up.  

Let see if I can remember any names -
Arjuna Ranatunga is the captain
Rumesh Ratnayeke is their pace man
Aravinda de Silva is a high-scoring batsman
??? Tillekeratne is an acrobatic wicket-keeper
Asoka de Silva is a consistent, but not flashy batsman
Rashan(?) Mahanama is their opener.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This guy is fantastic.  I too was in Oz over Christmas and I am sure
he placed more than once in the Channel Nine "Classic Catches" award.
Very quick, very acrobatic, very flashy.
