As cricket fans I personally expected some amount of performance from players. But at the end this is the points they were able to achieve. Highlighted players offered more than what we expected from them. Please note that above points were given considering their ability and skill and what percentage they used to contribute to the winning . For example we expected more runs from thisara and Udana. Since they have not contributed much they received low points.

We did not expect much bowling from Dananjaya De Silva but he was able to contribute.

The above points were given considering

  • batting, bowling and field all considered
  • for Dimuth captaincy score also considered
  • Isuru Udana’s fielding was good, but batting bowling was not that good
  • Mathews should be more fit
  • Malinga should be more fit, concern more on body shape (benefit more for him in future health)
  • Kusal mendis should have contributed more
  • Thisara should have batted well
  • Kusal Janith did good job with keeping
