Bowling unit gives Sri Lanka the edge – Mahela

Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene feels that the variety and the options he has in his bowling unit give Sri Lanka the edge over other teams in the World T-20. Sri Lanka’s campaign in the 12 nation competition got off to a resounding start as the hosts thrashed Zimbabwe by 82 runs..

I agree 100%. Three good allrounders in Angelo Mathews, Thisara Perera and Jeevan Mendis, add Nuwan Kulasekera, Lasith Malinga, Ajantha Mendis and thats a formidable bowling attack.

I like to see Akila Dananjaya against South Africa or in the next round. He is a trump card and Lanka must use him at some point in the tournament.

Thirimanna is a waste in the middle, better to go with Akhila. If Munaweera fails against South Africa then Chandimal should open the batting in the next round.

agree..if its a grass pitch again..will be a gud chance for mendis and new guy akhila dananjaya to perform.give him some not put him strait against india or pak.if they score more than 30 40..our selectors will throw him out..give him a chance vs south africa..

at the moment no point of putting chandimal..hes under he will play for his survival..

Thirimanna is a gud batsman,drop him and get akhila,we need another bowler who can surprise south africa.need to win next match against south get high confidence..

at the moment the strong teams are england and south africa
because they played some quality cricket in england..
