Its stupid

Its stupid to blame Tharanga for Kapu's wicket.Kapu's batting looks horrible, another youngster should have been sent instead of him.I always expected Tharanga to be dropped if Mahela was made the captain but that said Tharanga is only a good opener while Mahela-Dilshan seem to be the best.
Anyway Malinga+the decision to bowl first have cost us this match.I think its time for SL to be put up along with SA as the chokers in cricket.We seem to be never able to finish it off.

Only thing we know we are too

Only thing we know we are too soft when it comes to finals. Best example is Dilshan, take it too easy before the job done.

Malinga is no longer a match winner, as he is worst batsman than Murali. Leaking too much runs not sharp in the field.

We need Banuka Rajapaksha/ Angelo Perera/ Ashen Silva as fringe players, just to give them experience before the next world cup.

When Dilshan lead the side

When Dilshan lead the side Mahela deliberately under performed.There is nothing special in Mahela's leadership.One top order batsman's under perfomance was enough to make Dilshan unsuccessful.

Now mahela tryed his best.But he did not deserve it.What he got was right with respect to what he did to Dilshan.Only it's sad for SL fans who dearly loved a win over Australia.

Don't say EVEN your wife, at least not on Womens' day ! Just joking but like I said from the start the playing conditions have been made impossible before the start of the game. Bating second and not playing the second spinner is the reason for this loss.

There is a certain DeJaVu about this and the world cup final. Are these matches fixed by the powers that be even before the first ball is bowled ?

Maybe the minister was there to collect his commission ?

RAVANA is always suspicious of the team and players. Better word is paranoid.

Hard to believe we lost the finals again. Is this a mental thing? I don't know why this is happening too often to our guys. If this happens one more time we ll be placed along side South Africans.

I won't say we lost the finals just because we fielded first. Our top order failed in an important match and middle order didn't do that well. Kapu is a proven failure. Its not a good decision to include him in the side just because he is young or making big runs in domestic matches once in a while. That is also in a final.

I would like to see some youngers like banuka given an opportunity rather than these kapu and silvas.
