Tri series final preview?
India, after Sri Lanka; beat them by 51 runs this week, are now at the bottom of the points table with 10/6 matches, propping up Sri Lanka 11/5 and Australia 14/5.
Today Australia play Sri Lanka at Hobart, so no matter who wins India will still be bottom. After then each team will play the other once more. Australia look safe for a finals place (as the marketers wanted) while Sri Lanka look the likelier of the other contenders to face off (which may not be what the marketers wanted).
