Herath got us a wicket against England in which stage of the game? The 47th over. Before this, they relied on the quicks to finish the final 10 overs and they all went for a few, no?

Angelo brought Herath in during the power-play (just before he got injured) and Herath's over went for less than Thisara's previous over (20+ runs) and got a wicket too.

I think they will rely a lot more on spin more from here on in, especially if Herath recovers.

I would have thought everyone would have picked Ireland.

Yes he does and if catches were taken, he could have provided the all important early break through in a lot of the games. Also consider the two available options in the squad to replace him.

I am holding on to the theory that the bowling needs some strenghtening and Sachi could be a decent option in Aus and this kind of forces the situation.

I think his comments are taken out of context - trypical of the press. Thiri clearly stated that the bowling conditions were very different and I think his point was that batting conditions were easier but the press will run a mile with it.

This is a valid point made more so with new field restrictions in the last 15 overs and the two new balls. Worth noting its just not us who have a problem defending the last 15 overs but the difference is other teams have power batters hitters to chase down big targets.

Good to know SLC selectors have genuine competitors in the ECB according to some of the critics here. The team is cryiing for a KP style player.

To play India We will either have to finish 4th (unlikely) or India will have to finish lower then 1st (unfortunately also unlikely)

Dushmantha

i say we go with Dushmantha over nuwan for the Australia game to really test if he can handle quality batting side. there is not point in throwing him in for the game against scotland. it wont do any good for sri lanka as a team

i also think mahela should bat at 5 to strengthen the middle order. I say chandimal over DK because he played against Australia before and he was pretty good. Keep lamkal in the game one bad game doesn't define him

also though I would prefer to play tharanga but selectors think otherwise. Sri lanka should move away from the mentality of never change your winning side, which is a wrong mentality, even if they didn't bat their fielding would give a good idea of their place on the team
