Quite embarrasing that sri lanka went all out, but they still managed to put a decent score on the board. Chamara Kapugedera was excellent. Chandimal was a bit slow but he held the innings together otherwise we would have went out even quicker. Kusal Mendis was dissapointing. Perhaps for the next warm up match, drop Kusal mendis, Move Kapu up to 3, gunaratne at 6, and add an extra bowler like Malinga if he arrives to England by then. Not sure whether Dickwella will play next match. If he does then maybe you can try him at number 3, but i think he is best as an opener.

yeah, but with kusal perea scoring a 50 previous match and upl thranga being vice-capatin the only place Niroshan Dickwella can bat at is no.3. Chamara Kapugedera was excellent and should replace Thisara Perera. Also, Asela Gunarathne is not suited to the English condition as he only gets 20s and 30s and goes for more than 8 an over when he bowls according to 1st odi.Suranga Lakmal was awesome going for less than 4 runs an over while the others were going for 6 or 7 an over against scotland.

Hopefully, the Sri lanka Selectors acknowledge this is the best team and continue to play them for the 2nd ODI against Scotland and the 2 practice ICC matches.

The Batting performance was decent against Scotland 1st ODI but the Bowling performance was Poor espically poor performance by Asela Gunarathne going for 8 runs an over,Thisara Perera going for 7 runs an over,Nuwan Pradeep going for 6.5 runs an over

Time and time again I have to tell this.
Chandimal is a selfish ****** who never care about Sri Lanka cricket. he is adding runs to his name because he knows if he not scoring, definitely he will be out of the side. So he is playing real selfish cricket. ** ** * ***** *****

Kusal medis don't have the experience.

So my playing 11 definitely would be

1. Kusal perera
2. Dickwella
3. Tharanga
4. Asela
5. Kapugedera
6. Mathews
7. Prasanna
8. Thisara
9.kulasekara
10. Pradeep
11. Malinga

We need powerful start in opening.so kusal and dickwella are good to that. why we need these two because initially bowler balling good length. so never give the chance to ball good length all the time.we need to attack them at the beginning. Then settle down.

We need a player at 1 down position, who can play intelligent cricket with try to bat long innings. THARANGA will be the option to that place who has soo many experiences under his belt. same like sanga.

Then asela 2ND down asela is the man to go. Then kapugedera. Kapugedea must be 2ND down.

Don't give a chance to mathews because initially he struggles to get going.

Prasanna must be in the squad.

We have to choose sadakan or pradeep to play 11. above I mentioned others are OK.

I cannot believe Sri Lanka lost to Scotland. This is probably the most embarrassing defeat for Sri Lanka. We had a decent amount of runs on the board to put pressure back. But this match has shown us the quality of our bowling attack and it is horrendous. Im not quite sure what changes we need for our bowling. Our bowlers are simply not wicket takers. Lakmal has good accuracy but cannot take wickets in the shorter format. We obviously need Malinga for the Champions trophy but even he has struggled to find wickets in the IPL. At the moment the batting is OK with a few changes for the next match. But no changes can improve SL's bowling attack.

a good match but it we were not fortunate to win it. i prefer including kusal mendis as he performed well in the 2nd warmup match. further this champions trophy could be a good platform for his career. i recon placing kapugedera down the order as he may not be very handy in the champions trophy

jayapranesh's picture

my playing 11 would be

1) dickwella
2) tharanga
3) kusal mendis
4) kusal perera
5) mathews
6) asela
7) thisara perera
8) kulesakara
9) lakmal
10)sandakan
11)malinga
