IND v SL – Only T20I – Scorecard

  • Tom Moody

    I’m the former coach of Srilanka Cricket.I’am worried that SL is lossing too much matches more than normal.This is a small request from me to help you’ll.SL squad should be:- 01)Dinesh Chandimal 02)Upul Tharanga 03)lahiru Thirimanna 04)Kumar Sangakkara 05)Mahela Jayawardena 06)Anjelo Mathews 07)Thisara Perera 08)Nuwan Kulasekara 09)Lasith Malinga 10)Rangana Herath 11)Ajantha Mendis
    I also heard of a player called Banuka Rajapaksha.who have the temprement,talent.I got to know about him while I was spending time with some of my countries under 19 cricketers.So I also request your’ll to include him in the SL squad very soon.You might be suprised that I didn’t comment about T.M.Dilshan.He is out of form for more than one year.He was very impressive during the earlier stages while he opened the innings because thd bowlers just bowled him off side the off stump and he was able to play half volly shot.Now the bowlers knows his weak points and makes him out quickly.Now it is time to make a change. Therefore please take this into consideration.Thank you.

      Except for Chandimal the squad is good. Chandimal should be dropped.

      If we have another good batsman then Mahela should be dropped and draft in that guy.

      Lasith Malinga should not play against India. Those who have fear of India should not play against India. Mahela, Sanga and Upul all have the Indian-fear

    Yes, Correct. Graham Ford is a South African. Not an Australian.

    Good decision was made to bowl first since the bowlers are very weak against India. But poor batting as a whole.
    Just calculate and see. The target was 156 runs within 120 balls. Sri Lanka had 8 BATSMEN. If each BATSMEN were able to get 20 runs within 15 balls, Sri Lanka could have won this match. Is it too hard? But only Mahela and Lahiru did this.
    What the hell was Mathews doing at No. 5? He built up some kind of a pressure in the middle. No. 5 should be Chandimal. Mathews should be No. 6 or 7 where he has many experiences. As a result Poor Chandimal failed at low order.

  • Priyantha

    It is better SL played with India rather than Bangladesh or Kennia or Ireland. If it were them (latter three) results would have been the same: SL is so weak that they cannot even defeat Ireland, Scotland or even Namibia

    I would be so fair to drop those who do not perform at least to the average level in the series (like Chandimal, Malinga, etc). Give others also some chances
