Captain Strggling

Mathews destroyed the dream start made by Dhananjaya and Dickewella, by coming at #3. His struggle at that crucial situation put the whole team down. Although, the overs reduced SL should have gone with the usual batting line up.

Definitely, it should have been Kusal Mendis at #3. He is also aggressive and can hit boundaries. So, what did Mathews try to prove by promoting himself to #3. Mathews is known as a match finisher, so he could have fit into that role in this match.

Leaving Isuru Udana out is a bad decision. On the other hand, both Lakmal & Pradeep are test bowlers rather than T20 bowlers. It was proved in this match as well. But Udana can be identified more over as a T20 specialized bowler. So, hope Udana will play the next T20 match.
