Milinda Siriwardana’s fluent innings and Dhammika Prasad’s wholehearted bowling


Milinda Siriwardana fluent innings was eye-catching, he paced the innings beautifully down the order and his technique to maneuver the ball as well as hitting is what we needed down the order in WC 19.

Meanwhile, Dhammika Prasad’s wholehearted bowling with good gas was good to see, and he rewarded with 2 wickets against Dambulla.

He is a type of bowler who makes things happen, and both Dhammika and Milinda Definitely should part of Sri Lanka’s world cup squad Dear Selectors.

It will be very disappointing if both these experience campaigners/players do not make it to the squad.

They will definitely be part of my starting 11.

  1. You mean Siriwardana purely as a batsman right? Bowling him is a risk. Let’s see how well he plays rest of the tournament. Like the guy but he just hasn’t performed at the international level. Maybe he has improved his game.

  2. Melinda wasn’t given a chance consistently to perform at the top level. It was very disappointing when he got dropped just because the team wasn’t performing well and loosing matches.

    He played really well against Pakistan and bowled really well against them in that series.

    He is a proper batsman with good technique and good hitter down the order when he gets in. A player we need down the order.

    Milinda and Asela should have been given more chances and they can contribute with bowl as well.
