Kula keeps bowling slower

Kula keeps bowling slower deliveries with mid-on up, and keep going the distance

Mathews' bowling

Mathews' bowling changes both in the Tests and in this ODI have been poor, he seems very impatient. And I cannot understand not using Jeevan Mendis, even if SL go on to win, the effort on the field would have to go down as very very poor.

hmmmm bowling changes were

hmmmm bowling changes were fine in my view, except for the fact, the bowlers exactly didn't responded very well especially Kula(usually very dependable), that dropped catch was costly tho.
i think he didn't use jeewan as lefthanded tamim was there and striking it well....

Wind Factor

hmm.. different people have different perspectives :) I think wind also did something in this game's first half. I saw even Senanayake's bowl drifted in the air. So I think fast bowlers couldn't control their lines, especially Kula.
Lots of expectation from young guys. Kushal Janith as an opener, Angelo as a captain, Chandi as a v-captain. I feel we have to be patient, give some time to fly.

SL gets a target of 238 in 41

SL gets a target of 238 in 41 overs!!! Bangla was 209-7 at 41over mark, weren't they?! Anyone know D/L worked in this instance????

Wind Factor

Yep. its clear now, Their fast bowlers also cannot control the ball. Most probably the wind may have caused this inconsistency.
