Is to safe to open with 2 left handers and another one at number 3? Now kusal janith is the best form batter. If he gets out early there wont be a match. Because no trust in the middle order. Need to strenghthen the low middle order.
Too much rain exactly on sri lankan match dates is not good for the team. We need match practice. On tuesday also there will be 90% chance of raining. If overs will be reduced it wont be helping our team. Because we need to get improve as team to play a 50 over game.
We must learn how to play against 150km/h bowlers. Better use their pace to make runs by scoring behind the wicket. Deep thirmand and deep fine leg areas. Also better attacking bowlers straight through long off or long on areas when fielders are inside the circle.
Also hope bowlers take wickets in regular intervals. Dont let oppositions to score huge totals. Take wickets like we did against the afganistan. Swing,seam,bouncers,cross seam, slow balls, yorkers and cutters are helpful when taking wickets. Break partnership ,take run outs, increase dot balls and put pressure on opposition batters.
