    When ever Dilshan Munaweera fails Sri Lanka loose. So giving promincnace to Dilshan Munaweera in the web site is not a bad idea.

    Agree with Chinthaka… Ashan, and also Sachith Pathirana has been consistent… anyways hope these guys learn from the mistakes and start concentrating on the Provincial and future tournaments.

    very sad that we could not clear the hurdle at the last moment.

    The only consistent performer has been Ashan Priyanjana. However your website gives prominence to Dilshan Munaweera, Dinesh Chandimal and the rest. Not to Ashan, the silent achiever. In Sri Lanka what we need is consistency. Not flashes in the pan innings.

    very bad luck. but this is a main prblum for our batting side? bowling is very good (157 is good total)
    main resones are our openes not good batting . sepecial chandimal he is a bad batting in this game. he is high score only 24 ? but he is a v, capatan in the team? good games for Ashan. thissara. dilshan. others are ?

    any way we are lost the matche.
