That was a great catch sanga as usual, well done! great players like you will never be faded from our hearts.
Kusal you will be a world class player, congratulations! for your reason performances, keep it up, i am sure you will be our future batting icon.
Best thing to do would be bat outside the crease and play him straight if he pitches on stumps.
But just like in England none of the batsmen are going to bat outside the crease for fear of his pace.
And few have been dismissed try to hit him across the line and/or stay stuck in crease at same time.
I am surprised with the public comment though.
For limited overs Seekuge Prasanna has more control and can offer something with bat.
I just wonder if the lack of use of Lakshan Sadakan in 2nd Test dented his confidence. He was barely used and when he was came on to bowl so late.
1. D de Silva/ D Gunathilake
2. TM Dilshan
3. K Mendis
4. D Chandimal
5. D de Silva/ A Perera
6. A Mathews
7. M Sriwardene
8. T Perera
9. MDK Perera
10. A Aponso
11. S Lakmal
Note: Seekkuge Prasanna is not good enough to find a place in XI and MDKJ Perera is not consistent. And also TM Dilshan have to announce his retirement soon.
I think sandakan's wrong un turns waaaay more than seekkuge's stock ball, hence he can be used more effectively against both right and left hand batsmen. I'd back him to come good and i think one of the main reason he is losing control is becoz mathews doesnt trust him at all... He barely bowled in the test series.. Anyway, I dont believe having another half batsman half bowler in the team is gonna help at all!! Either have a genuine batsmen or genuine bowler, we clearly lack quality allrounders....
why give away the plans?? Obviously this is the correct approach but u shouldnt let the oppoaition know u r not going to attack one of their bowlers.. it would only make the captain more attacking and place more close up fielders when starc is bowling, which is precisely what u dont want...
Is "Asantha" named in the article really Asanga Seneviratne? Has Daily Mirror purposely changed the name??
One game on a spinning track isn't enough to make a call but he was certainly impressive which is a great start.
Useful? Yes but are we content with that and most importantly can they be consistent, especially Tissera. The issue with Dilshan is, what is the long term plan and what is his role? If its an anchor role that clashes with Chandi and we cannot have two anchors in the top 4.
