Why Mathews?

It was a pleasure to see Thirimanne is getting fit into #3 position of the batting order who was expected to do so after the retirement of Sangakkara.

But after the retirement of Mahela, Chandimal was expected to grab the #4 position of the batting order. So putting Chandimal down the order is a wastage. Therefore, I think Mathews should remain at #5 position letting Chandimal to bat at #4.

On the other hand SL should definitely have a front line spinner in the ODI team whatever the conditions. Further please bring a left arm fast bowler into the squad.

Worrying signs

At the end of the series, as expected Pakistan were the better side but its more than that. SL werent really too competitive in the T20 format in which we are still ranked at the top and Pak cruised to a 3-1 win in the 50 over format. Most worryingly, no significant or exciting performances from any of the next gen players. Yes there were a few signs of life but not much more than that.

Welcome runs for Thiri and a couple of decent knocks from Chandi but neither really made an impact on the series. Kusal probably was the highlight playing two match winnining innings in the only games we won. Milinda was handy for an important 30 but otherwise nothing really too exciting.

We did expect this but still very worrying.
