SL has no plan from selectors to the coaches and players
They hadn't done a good analyze about the pitch. It was a good pitch and even wasn't difficult to bat second.
SL played with extra batsmen (problem is we can't say they are batsmen even selectors think they are batmen) on a super bating pitch.
SL middle order never learn to take singles when they new to the wickets.
They has to go with a extra batsmen instead of using Tissara as an all rounder. I prefer to see 3 spinners in upcoming matches in Colombo
This is my team and this is my batting order for the rest of the matches. what do you think
Mathews ( he is responsible and intelligent to play at this position)
Kandamby ( he is not in the 15 due to poor fielding performance. Does team desperately need a good middle order batsmen or a fielder at this position)
Randeev (He is tall,has a good variation and difficult to hit against him)
Dilhara/Mendis/Herath depending on the pitch
I would leave out Kandamby. He is not a clean hitter. Looks edgy from the time he comes to the wicket. Almost all the matches i've seen him play, he played on because opposition gave him chances. And being a big guy, he couldnt hit a six to save his life.
I would also not pick Mendis. His days are gone. Even Canada played him quite well. He may be effective in 20/20. He is also not a good fielder.
And I will not choose Dilhara as well. Despite his experience, his constant no balls still keep coming. He is all over the pitch. No discipline in line and length.
Instead I would pick Herath and Randiv. Both have performed well in the recent times.
Mathews should come 4 down. Samaraweera still earns the place in my team. He can stabilize a collapse in the top order, though he failed yesterday.
Kapugedara is a hitter, unlike Silva but Silva is more mature. He really needs to get out of his test match game though
