5th ODI: Sri Lanka v New Zealand – Scorecard

  • Sahan

    Very Good decision had been made to send youngsters up in the batting order. But unfortunately they failed to take the maximum use of those opportunities. However I believe that they could learn something out of this match. That is what required by giving these kind of opportunities. Experiences will sharpen youngsters talents.
    Experienced Tharanga batted sensibly and took Sri Lankan inning out of the disaster. Well played 60 runs but unfortunately he couldn’t accelerate the inning at the end.
    However there is nothing much to worry even though overall batting failed, because an investment was done for the future by giving young batsmen more opportunity.
