sri lanka very unlucky today. but does not include the fact of sri lankas batting collapse yet again. Kapugederas shot was awful. angelo mathews played a great test innings aswell. drop catches were horrible aswell. this was the game sri lanka HAD to win, because they are never going to win against england and south africa. im afraid the group stages is where sri lanka will be staying. i have lost a lot of hope for sri lanka, as the same mistakes are being made over and over again. i dont really care anymore of sri lankas campaign in the wt20, il wait till kusal perera is back, hopefully for the england series

@Suren 1998,
Don't loose hope yet!. Our bowling is still OK especially, Vandersay and Herath. If we can put on 160 or more batting first and will not be done by some poor umpiring and horrible fielding, We can still beat ENG and SA.

So let's wait till we play ENG on the 26th.

We got to send Thisara up the order, even to open.

May be that the south african umpire wants his team and west indies qualify for the semi finals. but we can not always depend on dilshan. look at the way out batters got out. they played horrible shots. as the past, thirimanne still struggle to face leg spinners. chandimal is trying to give fielding practise sesions. so this is our young talent. It seems like mathews forget that there is an off side in the ground. he just tries to play every ball to the leg side. so thats why he played a great test knock today. but i think today dilahan looked really good. may be it is the reason for our collapse.

It was a terrible game our players were not up to mark. Several decisions went against us. It's sad to see ICC umpires do not refer these kind of decisions to third umpires, they upheld wrong decisions so confidently. These umpires are not even good for club games. Angelo should have insisted for 3rd umpire.

Don't loose hope..... there may be a silver lining on the dark clouds......... I'd like to think of Vandasay as a silver lining but it is too early. For the next games the ENG/SA will analyze the video and would have a game plan!

Umpiring looked as if it was fixed. Coz all three umpires made 3 wrong decisions.....

Even if we pardon the on-field umpires for human mistakes and blame the Indians for not having DRS.... No excuses for the 3rd umpire who showed utter ignorance about TV umpiring and basic laws of physics. As Chapell says third umpires should be trained on limitations of visuals.
