Chandi's techniques is

Chandi's techniques is flawed. I maybe bias coz I was never a fan of his very loose technique, even that 89 in the first test was full of reckless shots and he could have been out 4-5 times.

Thirimanne is a better batsman than him for tests. I also like Ashan Priyanjan, hope he make it to the test squad soon. He is very elegant and pleasing to the eye.

Cant wait for the Bangla test series after the utter shambolic performance by Lanka in the third test.

Batting order

1.Kaushal, 2.Dimuth, 3.Sanga, 4.MJ, 5.Chandi, 6.Angy, 7.PJ, 8.Mendis, 9.Eranaga, 10.Lakmal, Hera(only for bowling).

This should be the batting order and SL should declare once they reach to 9 wkts down. There is no purpose of letting Herath go for batting.

Expecting a no-nonsense series from the boys!

SL must win this series without messing about. With all respect for Bangladesh I expect SL to win but believe this to be the toughest series against them. Alot of the Bangladesh team has been togeather for a while and well experience and will not be easy pushovers.

As pointed out by @Rukshan, Chandi needs to tighten his technique and improve his shot selection. He is obviously a talented batter but he must tighten up his game and the worrying thing is he hasnt really changed anything from when he started to improve his game. Despite that he has made enough test runs but it will eventually catch up with him

Mathews doesn;t seem to

Mathews doesn;t seem to hesitate to bowl first in Test matches and has confidence on his bowlers to deliver, something we didn't see from Mahela,Sanga when they were captaining. It was always bat first and get 400+ and let the spinners go to work on day 3,4 pitches
