Openers

Looking at the squad, I don't see a proper opener to support Dilshan. Anyone has any ideas?
My guess is it might be dickwella or jayasuriya

Dickwella?!!

Why on earth did they go with Dickwella? His only contribution at national level worth mention is a test fifty, his shot selection in both his outings against was unbelievably poor. Would've rather brought back Thirrimanne or Munaweera as a wild card.

Need to think outside the box!

I presume we all agree that on current form and resources we are looking at a miracle to get anywhere. We need to come up with some tactics from the far side I reckon. I am dissappointed that we havent picked any dark horses in the squad but that being the case, I reckon tactics are the go. Pinch hitter role is one and I reckons Kapu is the man. Block bowling is another - hey that's what won the last one and easier said than done but if we rock expecting the others will run away its not happening.

Keep on dropping players like

Keep on dropping players like thirimanna who won T20 matches for us . blind selector who thinks like the blind fans who says " thiri has to be drop from something " when they never watch him play in T20s or have no idea about SL T20 cricket will keep on hurting SL cricket . hopefully this will not ended up as a humiliating defeated for us .smash some coconuts LOL we need soo much luck to save this game

appe apthiyantha dinna .

appe athiyantham dinna . lucky escape , no point of playing half fit malinga in the rest of the Asia cup . let him recover for the WT20 . otherwise I'm not sure even we are capable of winning against an associate team in the WT20 without him .
