Had Mathews early on taken Smith catch it would have been a different result.
Though we lost, it was a good fight and the wicket was very tough but the way Finch batted shows how we went wrong. I thought our batters didnt take enough risks, considering the long batting lineup... 275 and the game is ours..
Credit should be given to Australia, the way they bowled, batted and fielded but this is about what we could have done better
Yep, Roshan Abeysinghe is the guy knows everything about cricket, a born Pundit. He is the one who should decide whether Dilshan (who has scored over 10000 ODI runs) should continue to play or not.
Real success this was. Winning away from home is not just SL problem as the #1 ranked side just found out. The worry for me in recent times is the inability to win at home, most noteworthy against SA. Its hard to trick India and Pak with spin as we found out but still, they loses at home after a long time. Even Indian teams with Sachin, Dravid and Ganguly couldn't win in SL so to start losing at home as we did last year was a major concern and this win against Aus is real success.
Disappointed with all the hyper in the test series around the younger players, the selectors have gone back to the old trick of sticking with the same old players.

After25 innings he managed to score a century, so hopefully he can play at least two more years without scoring a century.
