    Players get paid less when they lose. This should apply to coaches too on a match to match basis. Support staff should be excluded.

    Honestly, a good game. The batting looked quite solid,Matthews should come back and replace either Chandimal or Asela, preferably Chandimal since he's quite slow. The bowling front looks terrible. Thisira has been dropped time and time again but why does he keep making returns? Nuwan Pradeep, Sandakan and sekkuge all looked quite toothlesss too. However we can build a decent bowling line up for the World Cup with Malinga, Lakmal , chameera/kasun rajitha and hopefully the return of akita dananjaya.

    True! The batting look solid! Question is are they going to be consistent which is the issue. Chandimal should be dropped for Thiri and Thisira is more of a T20 player and his bowling is horrible. The biggest issue right not us consistancy in batting! We could score 300 today but all out for 100 in the next ODI. Also no proper bowlers to put breaks on the runs.Asela should stay! Remember he has not played for a year.
