It's true that our fielding standard have really deteriorated . we do lots of mistake on the field now a days . something have to be done about this issue soon. otherwise we will keep giving ease hundreds to our opponent .

Hard to find much fault with a team that is winning everything and performing out of their skins but the fielding is a bit sloppy folks. Both games against SA could have been potential non-contests if the catching was better.

I think we can all know that no one takes Channaka de Silva seriously but he's got a point here.

Fielding has been very, very bad. We are not bad when compared to other Asian sides but our fielding is nowhere near our best ATM.
Yes, we've been winning almost everything recently but we keep giving people so many LIVES and someone from the opposition almost always scores big. Missed runouts, misfields and dropped catches cannot be ignored. As they say, catches do win matches. We keep winning even with dropped catches but matches would be so much easier for us if the fielding is of a high standard. Take South Africa, for example, they are one of the best fielding sides in the world. When we were batting well, in the 2nd ODI, they kept things tight with quality fielding and kept putting pressure on even though the bowlers couldn't do much.

Fitness levels need to improve as well. Even Paul Farbrace said that Asian teams don't bother as much about fitness as other sides too.

Apey wega pandu yawannan overs tikak eka digata dammahama hena mahansiyi. Api godak wegayen pandu yawanneth na a wunath apey kattiya ganna deyak na.

Hate to say that we have to agree with Channaka here!!

Also, our tailenders need some serious batting practice. 1st ODI - last five wickets fell for 13 runs. 2nd ODI - last five wickets fell for 11 runs. This was also evident in the recent tour of England, in ODIs and Tests.

Agree with the fitness and fielding issues but ATTITUDE???? You're f***ing kidding me, right? Our guys have probably the best attitudes out there, you retard! What are bunch of jokers these SLC admins are! :/
