Not considering all the other facts causing our team to drop down this low I personally think the biggest problem is the discipline including the captain's own.Does Matthews justify himself in any way by blaming everyone except himself he was talking about wins against some other teams recently before this debacle but none of these wins came under his captaincy. They all came under inexperienced captains. So it seems that the team sticks together when he is not around. I feel there is something wrong here how many run outs he had been involved recently? Why didn't they play Asela and Niroshan? Did we play the most efficient 11 players we had at that stage.I don't mind him playing as a player if he proves himself worth otherwise what is the point of him playing? To me it looks a personal vendetta to keep him in the team no matter what even dropping possible replacements to him like Asela. If the selectors think that English speaking is a necessity to lead Sri Lanka good luck to them Inzamam spoke hardly any English but how many matches he won for Pakistan. Just use the talent we have and shed all the personal favors

Batters can be done by a good ball and bowlers can be bowling to an opposition batter in fine form but there are no excuses for dropping catches!

Definitely feilding because in first match early in rahims' inning drop catch made loss everything for the team.
