Nielsen to keep same XI for 4th ODI
Thursday 18 August 2011

Australia coach Tim Nielsen has suggested that the visitors are unlikely to change their starting XI ahead of Saturday’s fourth ODI against Sri Lanka.

"I think all 11 players have done a pretty good job," Nielsen told AAP.

"We'll just make sure everyone pulls up well and we'll have to have a look at the conditions.

"To be honest, we've looked at the wicket each time and tried to make a decision on what's the best XI to use in those particular conditions that were offered.”

Brad Haddin and Steven Smith's lack of positive impact is of particular concern. The wicketkeeper-batsman has failed three games in a row, while the leg-spinner has been wayward when afforded the chance to bowl.

"We felt like if we had bowled a bit fuller in game three, we could have taken a few early wickets which would have changed the complexion of the game," added Nielsen.

"If we could have got a little partnership going at the top, it would have changed the whole complexion of the game also."
