  1. Why SL got thrashed by
    Why SL got thrashed by Bangla? 1) Solid opening pair UT/Dikka dismantled, of course, no solid opening partnership. 2) Nosedive Champion still as captain (?) & good enough only to be in test-format pool (?)… Clumsy fielder dropped Mithun at 10 then he scored 60’s, then send Dasun under the bus, a typical scene we all familiar. SL scored 30 in 3 overs, then blokatheon took 13 balls to score 1 run? What a joke to have this loser in ODI team (LOL). 3) Dilruwan dropped Mushi who then scored big. Mediocre spinner failed in bowling. 4) Why? Because when island needs badly, a selfish, non-dedicated, key spinner did not show up. All this summed up why Bangla kicked out this corrupted coach.

  3. Yes. well done Bangladesh You
    Yes. well done Bangladesh You have given another blow to Politicised srilankan team. Nowadays srilanka is not playing cricket they are playing politics, because starting from the chief selector up to head coach they are all politicised. team selection team management financial control and every thing is politicised. we all know Dayasiri, S.Pala, Laburoy, Ashely De Silva, Jerom, Mathivathan Ect. all had their political agenda and destroyed the srilankan cricket. they all continuously dropped Maliga for the comment Malinga made against the Sword Dancer’s BIG STOMACH Fairy Story Show Off. how come Street Sword Dancing politician know international cricket. he knows nothing just show off. now these big idiots can see who took 4 wickets yesterday pushing Bangladesh to back seat at the begging of their inning but unfortunately Srilanka couldn’t dominate on those bowling performances by Maling because of Very poor cricketing display by USELESS Mathew ( who dropped a vital catch and ran out a Shanaka, Kusal Mendis who is not suitable for One day cricket (50 matches average 28.6) good to work in a maternity hospital as an attendant) this guy is always looking at the ball in an excited mood not a reliable batsman at all. srilanka is keeping sky high hopes of him but a useless cricketer throw the wicket all the time playing very poor shots like Dananjaya De silva. Head coach is not the best Coach srilanka is having he has not done any thing to stop srilanka getting thrashed in the one dayers. he was also responsible for Malinga’s exclusion during the Pala and Sword Dancer’s era, because Head coach confirmed what Pala, Dancer and L.Roy’s decisions to DROP Malinga this cost many matches to srilanka. If srilanka cannot make an impact at the Asian cup they cannot do any better at the World Cup so Head coach has to do or die without pushing srilanka to further humiliation. from the time he took over Bangladesh is humiliating srilankan cricket by beating them continuously. where is the other big Talker Gurusingha HIDING NOW? (High performance Bull shit) what happened to him? he and Sanath responsible for sending the previous coach home, who was grooming a good fighting team before Present coach who has failed to make a noticeable improvement in srilankan cricket but only this he is doing is recommending his friends from Australia to become part of srilankan coaching team, but has not proved to be successful. it is better to appoint the A TEAM coach as the srilankan national team coach who has done far and far better than Hathurusingha to A team to become successful. may God protect srilankan cricket from opportunistic officers who destroyed and destroying srilankan cricket

  4. There is nothing wrong with
    There is nothing wrong with losing, but this is a humiliating loss even more so after the start Malinga gave SL with the ball.
    Great to see Malinga bowl with pace and determination on his come back

    Credit where it is due Mushfiqur played a terrific innings and was supported well by Mithun in partnership. And Tammin coming out at end may have inspired his team too.

    However the SL fielding was woeful. So many catches which at the top level should be taken. Not sure if it was the 43 degree heat or match fixers that plague this tournament and matches in this region took hold but it was shocking and the batting response that followed just as appalling.

    Now leaves the side in a tough position to progress further given NRR.

    On yesterday’s performance you really can’t guarantee SL can beat Afghanistan in next match

  5. As soon as we dropped those
    As soon as we dropped those three catches I knew this would happen. Because this happened previously over and over again. Drop catches has a demoralizing effect.
    I am not going to comment on the selection. Labrooy might be the worst we ever had. What’s troubling is Hathurusinghe. As the team coach he could have oppose to those ridicules selections like Shehan, Dilruwan. He is just a hyped money eater who thinks he is the best anybody can have. He can’t atleast read the condition and use players accordingly . Flat surfaces, no spin means almost every other country going with wrist spinners in the middle overs to counter the batting. I thought Hasaranga, or Even Jeevan Mendis bowled much better than Amila or Dilruwan but selectors going for the guys who had average performances. Also can’t understand why they are not giving extended run to Sandakan who still a strike bowler. Most likely Sri Lanka will exit in the first round as I don’t know how they gonna handle Afghan spin attack like this.
