What Marvan thinks about Chandimal's century at Lord's
This is the reply Marvan Atapattu gave, when I asked him about Mathews helping Chandimal to get his 100!

The profile photos used on the Twitter account appear to be his personal photos, which is what led me to think its real (I know, real clever of me, neh?).

But you're right, Hatem. They should have handled themselves better, these cameras can zoom in from miles away.

I don't know if any of you recall Sangakkara asking Welegedera to bowl continuously wide to Sehwag or Sachin (can't recall which one) to deprive the batsman of a Test double century, during SL's tour of India in 2009?

Although it was brave of him, I don't particularly approve of what Mathews did because it shows disrespect to the opposition. But I'm glad Chandimal got his century and understand he wouldn't have done it if we were in trouble of not winning the match.

And it also shows that Mathews is willing to take bold decisions. Definitely a bit of captaincy material in him.
