Agree.its a good analysis .but another point need to keep in mind is our game plan need to be updated. Our current strategy is suited for 2011-2013 or even in 2007. Score 250+ in Aussie track with average bowling attack will not work.plus at the moment we can generally chase 250-270 targets but not 300-350 .yes we did it vs eng who struggled .same cannot say against nz or Sa or even aus.keep in mind we are playing 2019 wc in England.since our bowling expect to struggle
due to inexperience we must be ready to chase 250+ regularly.

So the conclusion is simple . We have to bat out our opposition. My suggestions for our odi batting line up (first choice)

Kusal

Thiri

Chandimal - that controlled aggressive chandimal we saw in lords,and even against Australia

Bhanuka

Mathews

Kithruwan

Roshen de silva

Addition for that we need to look at these players too

Priyanjan

Danushka gunathilake

Angelo perera

Dilshan munaweera

Dear Readers of Island Cricket blog articles.

I have been a member of Island Cricket site for more than 4 years since 2011, unlike the person who is accusing me CricketEvaluater (has been a member for just 8 weeks) for posting my personal opinions, with legitimate statistics (from Cricinfo) to prove a point. I have nothing against any individual & have never insulted anyone in anyway, as clearly seen from my articles.

Writing stats based facts openly can go against certain types of minds, who cannot withstand it. After all, these blogs are meant for that kind of constructive view points, isn't it ? As far as I can see, expressing your views with analyzed data is not any insult or abuse & anyone can do that. But, if the Island Cricket admins think differently. I may stop writing.

As you can judge from my submissions, submitting solid facts based on legitimate stats are not any form of insult or abuse on anyone, but just revealing the actual reality as it is. If these facts go against someone's opinion, what can I do? They all have the freedom to counter any of my view points, with some substance to prove that I am wrong. When they are unable to do it that, this is the way they try to stop my writings.! :))

There were few such people, who tried with several threatening (abusive) comments to stop my writings. If you follow some of the abusive comments made by the same CricketEvaluater's LATEST COMMENTS in these decent forums, opened for constructive criticism & ideas of general public, you will see what I am saying:

PS:

I have no hard feelings on anyone or nothing personal with any player or any individual. I love to see SL cricket progress to the highest level & followed the game closely for many decades. This is all I have to say. You can judge what is going on here..! HumbleBee

I agree with SPCG to a certain point. I think Malinga should play until the t20 WC next year and then retire..

We need a strong administration and selectors are given a set time to to reign (e.g. next world cup 2019), otherwise i suspect we will panic after a few losses and revert back to temp solutions..

Mehema blog ekak liwwata samawenna but What I tried to tell from this blog is that users cannot humiliate players who are representing national team continuously for their individual benefit. They are representing the national squad because selectors see they are fine enough to represent at national level.

Other thing is that this site should not be used to express individual opinion and interest among the public all the time and use it for private gain by some people.

Never mind seeing one or two posts regarding expressing their opinions that is what this site are all about. But this seems to be gone beyond the acceptable limit as it seems.

Hate the colours in the last two photos. Looks like they've got heads full of grey hair :/

Oh... this why Sanath & Marvan eliminate Tharanga from opening spot since 2013.!

If Tharanga was allowed to play those 60+ Odis including the 2015 WC, Certainly Dilly -Tharanga would have easily scored that 350 runs difference to improve their ranking certainly beyond Sanath -Marvan pair's 7th ranking spot, and would have probably passed 6) David Boon and Geoff Marsh-3,523 runs 5) Gilchrist and Mark Waugh-3,853runs 4) Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar-3,919 runs to improve their ranking to 4th spot and maybe even beyond..... All they needed was 967 runs from 60+ innings! How unfortunate SL is :((

It would have been a piece of cake for Dilshan & Tharanga (they have scored 800 runs from just 9 innings in 2011 WC & Totaled 3,000+ runs from just 67 innings!

7) Marvan & SJ pair had scored 3,382 runs @ 43.92 AV from 79 ings

8) Tharanga-Dilly pair had scored 3,052 runs @ 46.24 Av from 67 ings

PK, let's not forget India's WC campaign in 2007.... We have all experienced setbacks, but its all about how you come out of it. Also, our captain is so great even a great nation like India wants him to play in their premier league :) Good luck to your team!
