Would have been better to drop Prasanna- bowled full tosses and wides. Siriwardana can spin it away from the right handers (since he will actually get the ball to pitch) and is a clean hitter of the ball, with more shots than Prasanna. I would be amazed if Prasanna plays next match.

In my person opinion the Sri Lankan selectors should give the opening spot to the two remarkable youngsters Avishka Fernando and Danuska Gunathilaka because they provide the team with right hand and left hand combination at the top of the order. They will perform brilliantly in the ODIs and T20s and definitely be the Sri Lankan team's prospect for the future especially for the 2017 Champions Trophy, 2018 T20 World Cup, 2019 ODI World Cup and etc.. They both are creative stroke playing batsmen which can create many issues for the bowler thinking of what type of bowls to bowl during the game. They have talent to show the whole world and they should be given the chance straight after Dilshan's retirement.

Dear Mathews really kind of words from you by the way We fans many time talked about some of the name and one of that Amila aponso. and believe us, We are not a stupid fans still we are talking about some of them like Roshan Silva for Test, Lahiru Milantha and Charith Asalanka for All format. There some teen fast bowlers and few more all rounder's like Shamu Ahsan.

If not, let me be the first one to call upon our cricketers to aim to be the Number One in the Test Rankings within a reasonable time period. We've already done the near 'impossible' by whitewashing the Aussies 3/0 which is in fact better than Pak's 2/0. Pak's ascendency to No one had only two away wins in BD & SL with the current 2/2 draw with England & the rest were home wins. Have we got anything more difficult at home, answer is NO. So I call upon the SLC to make a clear plan towards this goal.We should win all (or most) of our coming home games, no other team could be better than the Aussies. For this, look after Herath well & develop other good spinners. Aim a couple or so away wins now itself with the new crop of young fast bowlers on board. This is very realistic unlike the one, the then SLC made prior to the millennium. All teams hereafter will visit us with hesitancy,no doubt & demand no less from the coach & the team. Plan away tours with enough time for accilitimazation & arrange Consultants from those countries for the major tours specially. See how many, the Aussies have got in addition to Lehmann. To begin with arrange these for the SA tour & we can surmount all hurdles to be the No one without doubt. R.Herath UK
