Dhananjaya de Silva, Angelo Perera, Shehan Jayasuriya make strong World Cup cases

Dhananjaya de Silva, Angelo Perera and fringe allrounder Shehan Jayasuriya all strengthened their cases for being picked for the World Cup squad with strong performances in the second round of the Super Four Provincial Limited-Over Tournament.

Angelo Mathews played himself into some form too, and fast bowler Dhammika Prasad also put in a good show, raising the possibility – for the first time – that he could be a World Cup option.

  1. It’s good that all our middle order batsmen are doing well in the tournament. Chandimal has improved his SR’s tremendously. Problem with him earlier was the initial slow SR. Dhananjaya has performed well as a batting all rounder for No 3 / 4 position. Angelo Mathews and Kusal Mendis both made good contributions.
    We still have a problem with a power hitting opener and a proper replacement for Dasun Shanaka to bat at no 6 ideally a batting allrouder who can score big sixes. Its high time we try at least Chamika K who batted well in the first match but was not given a chance to bat at the same position in yesterdays match.
