Outplayed at home...again!

I thought SL had a decent series despite missing the finals and some positives in the batting front in the form of the two Kusals. Both are natural stroke makers batting with a lot of freedom and exactly what is needed at the top of the order. What I liked about both is the pure stroke play as opposed to wild shots or unorthodox shots. Both play proper cricket shots with decent technique and that's a great starting point.

I am still not convinced Tharanga as Chandi should be same side in t20 cricket but I guess we are looking for experience and a captain but don't think this is the best plan. Despite not making the finals I thought we played some decent cricket but some of the major issues remain a concern. First of all the ability to lose a game in the first 30 minutes which was the case with Bangladesh in the second game. We did well to recover but it was always a losing cause. Second is the lack of quality bowlers and anyone reliable to bowl the death overs. Finally the fielding is still below par but there are decent signs.

I presume this is yet another undesirable first where SL are not featuring in a home triangular final!
