If Mahela wins the toss in tomorrow’s crucial 2nd Final game, He has to opt for batting. Without pressure Sri Lanka has to score 280 + Runs & the score can be defended with two regular spin bowlers (Herath & Senanayake) & Part time bowler Dilshan.
Please note adelaide ground will help the spinners as the game progress.
If Mahela loses the toss and australia takes the batting – Sri lanka should restrict australia not to score more than 220 – which can be easily chased by sri lankan team.
Confidence level among the players got increased after the finals, with the same spirit Mahela team will have an edge in tomorrow’s match
Best Wishes to Lankan cricket team.
it was a great mach.wel done ,sri lankan lower order, you al were fantastic sri lanka should go and bowel with a plan specially to warner and david hussy. both of them have significant weaknesses .sl should attack warner wit a off side bowling and attack david hussy wit short pitch stuff.. good luck team sl. its kangaroo soup for tuesday night
Kulasekara taught the top order sri lankan batsmen how to chase a huge total in the flat pitch. Kudos to Kulasekara who fighted well in the slog overs. Unfortunately sri lankan couldn’t achieve the magic figure of 323 in 50 Overs.
Lower Middle order batsmen performed really well. Tharanga & Kulasekara partnership really made australians a fear.
As a batsman Dhamika Prasad did extremely well, What a six he scored against brett lee on the long off region.
If Perrera or Mathews would have played in today’s match, the story would be different.
Once again my wishes to Sri Lankan team to have a better next match in Adelaide
Sri Lankan team playing poor cricket now. After losing the toss, bowled very worst in the flat pitch & allowed australia to cross 300.
Chasing a huge target of 300 + in this ground is a tough task & top order batsmen fumbled again.
Better Luck next time.
They have to forget of the first finals and have to concentrate on 2nd finals.
Mahela should also think of including welegedhara in next match in place of Dhammika Prasad.
Mathews should play in next match & take his team to 3rd Finals
