  1. Crunch match, I don’t think we should play any uncapped players. For me Asitha and Dana comes in for the 2 in experienced seamers. We should also stick to the regular batting line up, not the time to experiment. Dhanushka and Pathum open, Kusal 1 down and Asalanka at 4. Shanaka should step up. Coming in at 6 makes no sense.

  2. Hope this loss open the eyes of the selectors to bring Mathew to T20 WC squad
    .Bhanuka was stroking the ball well & should have taken the responsibility to make a substantial score but you can’t hide a ‘lousy’ crickter as Arthur pointed out, his poor running cost his wicket & to our loss.

  3. I don’t think, we should play two many fast bowlers, since they are inexperienced and pitch assisting spinners. we should replace one fast bowler with Vandersayand need to accomodate DDs in the playing eleven replacing pathum Nisanka
