2nd Test: Sri Lanka v Australia – Scorecard

  • Nimesh

    I don know why Dilshan Munaweera is not included in some of the guys t20 and one day team. give him a big run . he has amazing talent and one cricketer i can tell will stand up for Sl cricket in the future.before he made his debut even he showed so much of courage and talent in the SLPL. We need cricketers like him. not your selectors money giving babies .

    Mitchell Jonsson destroyed Sri Lanka again!!

    Mahela’s world class batting ability is at stakes!! The way he got out is fine indication of his lack of batting abilities. He is a leaver of the bowl rather tnan strier of it.

    Yes, we do not have any gusty players these days. We do not have gusty players like Hashan Tillekeratne, Arjuna Randtunga or Roshna Mahanama. And we do not have fearless criketers as Aravinda de Silva, Romesh Kaluwitharana,

    Bowling is the worst we can ever imaigine. A complete eye-sore

    Train our guys with Aravida, Romesh Kalu, Ajith de Sliva, Brendon Kuruppu, Romesh Rathnayake, Greame Labroy, etc.

    Send these players to some school and train them about thinking abilities, etc.

    Drop the toothless crickers like Mahela, Samaraweera, for the next Test, for goodness sake

  • wijayatunga

    For the goodness sake, please drop Mahela and Samaraweera for the 3rd Test. If you cannot middle a bowl that comes at 140+ Kilometers per hour, you are not a good batsmen. These two cannot do that now.And also they are very defensive. Not stroke players. Eye-sore to watch.

    And Mathews is also the same case.

    Ask Aravinda De Silva or Romesh Kalauwitharana to train our batsmen. Marven is only a big mouth not a good batiing coach.

    Who are training our bowlers? Pathetic bowling

  • wijayatunga

    Mahela has no cricket left with him now. He should retire immediately. Mahela.., don’t be another Jayasooriya… Go home with you credentials. It is obvious that you cannot judge the bowl now. Samaraweera is in the same status. He should retire immediately.

    Everytime after a loss you all say, there is a lot that you have learnt from the loss. But in the following match you all fail in the same way!!! Only learning no implementation of corrections!!!What does this mean? Clearly it means that you all are not physically fit to adjust. That is because you all are too old to play now. Give younsters the chance and go home. Do not play disgraceful cricket. It is not good for SriLanka and also not good for the game of cricket.

    Only Sanga and Dilshan may play for a while…but their retiremnts are also closing by.

    When we look at Sri Lankan bowling, it is clear our bowlers cannot turn a match around. They are physically weak and mentally lagging behind.

    It is really unfortunate to see that Sri Lankan batsmen cannot put away abowl that comes 140km per hour.

    Batting coach… please go home. We need a batting coach in the likes of Javed Miandad or Steve Waugh

    Current Sri Lankan team is totally dump except for Sanga and to some extent Dilshan

  • Shaun

    Mahela Jayawardena and Thilan Samaraweera should be retire for International Cricket of any format. Lasith Malinga should not be include any format. He is a IPL selfish player. T.M. Dilshan also should be retire Test Cricket. And Kumar Sangakkara should be retire for ODI and T20 format. Nuwan Kulasekara and Chanaka Welagedara have shown poor performance.
    Rangana Hearath suitable for Test Cricket only. Thisara Perera suitable for T20 only. Anjelo Mathews should be a caption in the side and Dinesh Chandimal should be a Vice Caption and Weeket keeper.

    Note: Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara and Rangana Hearath not include in this side. Beacause they have been shown poor performance in past ODI and T20 series. Mr. Mel, pls consider good talent players like these for future tours. Anjelo Perera,

They are good performers in 1st class level.
    Mr. Mel pls pls this time or give chances to above mentioning few them.

    I can surely expect better cricket from a bunch of 17-year old school boys from a remote town in Sri Lanka than this toothless Sri Lankan Test Cricket team. Even if they lose they can be entertaining to watch. With this Test team, on top of seeing huge defeats no entertaining crikcet, just boring!!
