For the third time, PakSLPAKistan won four matches in an ODI series of five matches against Sri Lanka. The previous such victory came in the ODI series in Sri Lanka in 1994 (Source: espncricinfo)

Another very painful series is ended. I know that it was a hard period for both fans and players. The thing that I can’t understand is why nothing has changed after England or Australia tournaments?

As most of us, even I could see from the faces of the players something’s drastically wrong. The captain lacked application. Experience means nothing if this kind of display continues. SL team should practice harder and get their mental strength: that will be the only way to win. Currently our team is lacking both of them when compared with other international squads.

Let’s take a step back see what are the major changes done after the World cup 2011.

  1. We have change our selection team
  2. Selected Marvan to our batting coach role
  3. Made Dilshan as the captain

Have all of these worked for us? My answer is NO. I think all these changes made the situation even worse.Cricket

I can’t understand why everything goes wrong with SL cricket? Few years ago I felt that SL team was da luckiest team in the world. But today I feel that I’m wrong. Other teams use young players and they success every time. But we? Better to play a new young team and get them experienced to match situations. What are we waiting for? To be all out 50?

So many excuses from Dilshan fingering to junior players without talking about his poor batting, and captaincy, I’m looking forward to see Dilshan on Friday night (T20), Our team mates must win T20 match and keep the ranking in 2nd position.

With the current form of SL cricketers, simply SL deserves the bottom most position in both the Test and the ODI Ranking Tables in the world. It seems they are going to get there sooner!!

Come on guys, as a real cricket lover in Sri Lanka I hope our team will come back their natural form from upcoming SA tournament. I am banking on Sanga stepping up big time in the upcoming series and carrying the side like he did v Pak.
