Sri Lanka's batting woes are

Sri Lanka's batting woes are result of,

1). Tharanga's obvious batting weakness playing the ball just out side the off stump

2). Dilshan's poor shot selection

3). Mahela's inability to concentrate for long periods of time (Wonder he is thinking about Ministry of Crabs from time to time while batting), He always does something so stupid after starting really well.

This puts so much pressure on Sanga and Mathews, If you have noticed Kuma is too defencive these days at the beginning of his inning with a very low strike rate cause he knows that if he loses his wicket Sri Lanka only have a very slim chance of getting to a match winning score.

Maharoof

Saw the idea mooted in another forum of Maharoof being given a go as an opener in place of Tharanga ?

This could mean that we can choose another specialist spinner ( wish Jeevan Mendis was there !)and one of the medium pace allrounders (Thisara ?)could go out.

People who suggest Tharanga

People who suggest Tharanga should be dropped really need to pay more closer attention. It is a really ridiculous suggestion, given that Tharanga has been one of our most successful batsmen in the last 12 months.

Tharanga averages more than Dilshan and he has made more centuries than Sangakkara in the last 12 months!

It doesn't matter if you watch every game Sri Lanka has ever played; it's useless if you're not paying attention to what's actually going on. Some of these fans who ask for Tharanga to be dropped don't appear to be following the game very closely, no?

That is why the Indians don't

That is why the Indians don't want DRS, anyway Sharma is run out. That LBW looked plumb to me
