Need to sort out

Indians had made a suitable pitch for Ashwin, not for T20 Cricket. Further, they played with 13 players including 2 umpires. And they may be thinking that they won comprehensively.

On the other hand, careless batting of SL batsmen also caused for this low total. Especially two openers (Dilshan & Dickwella) put all the pressure on SL up front. So, open batting is still the major issue. This should be figure out immediately before the T20 World cup.

Dilshan has to realize at least now that he is not capable now. Dickwella seems to be careless when batting. So, Dhananjaya de Silva who is the leading runs scorer of the SLC super T20 tournament can be tried out at the Asia cup.

Expected the result but not the meek showing.

Well that was a disgracefull performance two games in a row. I didnt expect to beat India but the manner in which we lost is a serious concern. The top order is a concern and the last two tracks werent really issues for openers - just didnt have the technique or ability to deal with it. Not sure where to from here, these are conditions we are expected to compete in but we hardly showed up in the last two games.
