SRI LANKAN CRICKET AGAINST AUSTRALIA – POSITIVES
Posted on June 16th, 2019

By M D P DISSANAYAKE

Our Team must be encouraged by the quality of cricket played by them against World Champion Australia.  We did not succumb to mighty Aussies. We did not fear their bowling attack.  All commentators Mark Nicholson, Michael Clark, Mathew Heyden  agreed on the signs of reincarnation of Sanath and Kalu days of Sri Lanka. The World best Cricketing Analyst our own best product  Kumar Sangakkara injected his articulated vocabulary to bring his motherland to the hilt.

There are clear signs of emergence of fighting spirit of Sri Lankan cricket once again.  Isuru Udana turned the tables. Relatively unknown ODI batsman known as Dimuth Karunaratne flew high Sri Lankan Flag.  Kusal Janith once again rejuvenated skills of batting sending  deliveries of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Richardson to  the boundary and over the boundary. 

Commentator Mark Nicolson was virtually nervous in his commentaries when Dimuth and Kusal were batting.  He indirectly hinted that a victory for Sri Lanka would be a foregone conclusion.

Dimuth has provided Leadership.   He need to provide Motivation to bring the taste of victory. 

Dimuth can do it and he will do it with the Team to bring back the glory of Sri Lankan cricket to the forefront.

Jayawewa, Sri Lanka.

    There is a deliberate under-performer in the team. He must be relieved of national duty. I have pointed this out a long ago and now it is obvious. But be aware he may perform well when he is certain SL cannot make it to the semis so that he can remain in the team to destroy it further.

    Well done Dimuth. He leads by example. I was wrong about his batting. My apologies.

    Keep Dimuth as the Test and ODI captain until WC2023.
