Sri Lanka’s World Cup preparations, a soup of conundrums

So, what are the problems SL needs to solve in the upcoming 10 months? Basically everything. Thanks to the turmoil we went through post 2015 World Cup (the only good ODI memory I have is beating India in the ICC Champions Trophy), we must admit that we are like a wrecked ship

Yes certainly SL has a mountain to climb just to arrive at the WC despite having an invite. Just so many floating parts as the write puts it and I simply have no idea at this stage.

What I will say the plan should be to figure out what to expect. Looks like highs scores with batter running riot so lets make plans accordingly. Was a bit concerned when we picked both Kaushal Silva and Dimuth Karunaratne for the warm up against the saffers. Its the kind of plan that even if it were to succeed we would lose the game. We need to make plans for 300+ scores and this would need some genuine stroke makers.

There are alot of issues but we need to tighten p the fielding. One things for sure, unless we change from the current struggles, we will be making up numbers in 2019.
