Looking at the capitulation against australia sri lankan clearly needs to rethink their batting order . Though changing the batting order will not help the players confidence ,it will help the team compete better . It was sad to see that thirimanne,siriwardena,thisra perera did not believe we could win the game.When the selectors covered their asses buy picking a very old/experienced squad with lots of mental scars the current chaos was a good possibility .Shameful that players refusing to go to press conferences.It’s clear that wheels are about to come off unless things change.
2.Avishka Fernando – He’s still very young,with the wickets being batting friendly he can do a good job
3.Dhananjaya De Silva -started out as a top order batsmen ,but now seems to be sri lankas premier spinner which is laughable .He’s not a power player ,give him a chance to get going in the early overs.
4.Kusal Janith – All his best innings have come in the middle order .
5.Anjelo Matthews -What can i say,needs to do better !.
6.Kusal Mendis – Haturusinghe’s golden boy,is a better power hitter than DDS.Prefers pace on the ball. therefore can be devastating in the back 15 overs.
8.Jeewan Mendis – Has a better attitude than siriwardena.Actually tries his best though lucky to be there
9.Isuru Udana- SL current best player.Excellent attitude .
