that was a mauling

I have never seen a more lethargic SL ODI side recently than the one today, the main difference was the fielding - that Mathews drop was very costly.
And although Chandimal did bat well for himself, he really did put pressure on the others by playing so many dot balls(50) early on and then his crazy running out of Mathews and Thirimanne.

@Sulaimaan ohh i missed that

@Sulaimaan ohh i missed that Mathews drop catch .. what happened? is that an easy one?

lol see im always saying that a school team might field better than our national side :P ... now what they gonna do is that blame the batsman for the loss LOL , wonder this mgmt think that we can win mathches without tacking catches? run outs?

@sdf it wasnt an easy one

@sdf it wasnt an easy one but he should have caught it.Could have cost us 20-30 runs.But the fielding in general was poor, and also this new rule of 4 fielders is going to really hurt the spinners especially on good batting tracks like the one today.

@ UC_7 SL won't win in Oz if

@ UC_7 SL won't win in Oz if Tharanga open's the batting, he is a free wicket.

THE MIZ (not verified)
Tharanga???

For the love of god...!!!drop tharanga or move the guy into the middle order...How many edges to the keeper / slips will it take to prove the point that he is not a good opener??

BTW did anyone listented to Sanaa's pre match thoughts...the guy talks rubbish,questioninbg kulasekara's spot in the test xi..
