Pace bowling is becoming a real worry if SL's target is the WC 2015. Malinga cannot get it above 140 any more. Its fine bowling at 130 to 135 as long as you have an "effort ball" that is 140+ kph to surprise and hurry the batter. Even the diplomatic, ever-complimentary and supportive Chisty Mujahid said that Mali has put on weight. This can only exacerbate his knee problems and is sure to adversely impact his bowling. Kula is a mystery in that he seems to have lost his (minimal)out-swing and his yorker. He can bowl an in-dipper and a straight ball at 125 to 130 kph tops. This is not going to worry any top batter anywhere in the world. No variation + medium pace = carnage. Angie is pedestrian at best maybe due to his fitness issues. Thisara needs a lot of improvement and could bowl at 140+kph 3 to 4 years ago. What happened? Vaasy, though medium paced, had all the tricks and was consistently (90%) accurate. None of the present lot are in that class. SL needs a good pace bowling coach. Gibson (WI) is free. McGrath (AUS) also talks sense.

Think he is still injured, also Janith takes the pressure off Dilshan and allows him to play the longer inns, Dilshan is forced to attack from the first ball while batting with Tharnga

he plays with the tail and he plays for the team if its the 48th over and he needs 5 runs still, he is the kind of player who will go for the big shot rather than nudging singles looking for a maiden 100. when it comes it will come. i dont think he is worried about it. he is a team player.
