Mathews bogged down again and cant rotate strike. He'll put himself under a lot of pressure and get out because he's not even looking for singles. Im beginning to wonder if this guy is mature enough to be captain.

Sri Lankans heading towards usual result, one short of achieving ultimate goal ....

You can argue now why did Mahela bowled first, had Sri Lanka tried to Bat first and failed to set a decent score, same dudes will be jumping around and shouting "why did Mahela bat first ?, last two games bowling first did the trick for us" ..etc.

Bottom line is we are a patchy side, we play well in patches but overall it's not good enough to close off series wins. Add to the woes our selectors don't plan well and tend to stay with inconsistent players. So always we fail the last hurdle.

you can't expect from side like Aussies to get out cheaply consistently, today score is the par for the ground if we can't chase it, we don't deserve to win the series.

Why this Jeewan doing exact opposite of what is require ? two games ago when we had 70 runs to chase he came out swinging from the hip, playing all the known slogs, now RR is close to 10 he defending balls inside power play.
