Sri Lanka’s new T-20 captain Angelo Mathews today said he was satisfied and had confidence in his team scheduled to face the upcoming T-20 tournament against New Zealand.

“I am satisfied with the team. We came forward strongly as a team except for the last match in the last T-20 world cup. We don’t expect to make big changes. We hope to play as we have done so far. We are going to miss the services of Mahela and Malinga who have been rested by the selectors.”

Responding to a question on introducing new spinners to the team, he said such changes have to be made when playing with a non-sub continent country and those players will find it difficult to play against such spinners. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    Mathews your are a good player, but your maturity to captain is questionable. I agree that playing rash shots will not do good for the future. good Luck and god Bless...

    The point is how satisfied is he of his own performance and ability to lead his team to victory?

    Many people are sick of S L cricket the Way Mahela, and Malinga played. the last Finals.
    Why did they drop Rangana Herath and included that boy ,no body has heard of. He must be related to somebody.

    Its Time to Change the selectors, The Joker and The Muppets.

    Mathews do not give this kind of statements , has any captain in any part of the world said in the past that he does not have the confidence in his team? Do not get your head swollen for being nominated as the Captain as there is no one else and you are as bad as the others. I cannot still forget the way you and the rest of the team played the recent world cup and cannot imagine how Sri Lanka lost that match. Malinga, Mahela and you are the major contributors.to the defeat

    But do not allow a bowler who has given away 20 runs in his last over to bowl again.

    Mushi Sunday, 28 October 2012 12:00 AM

    It is unfortunate for Lankan team that Senior player like Mahela groomed here to be world class player chase behind money forgeting motherland. This is called kicking the ladder out after using it for climbing to the top. via DM Android App

    The usual baila by our captains before any match series. Always confident and rearing to go and the same excuses when they lose. All the same, wish you guys well.

    Nodrog Saturday, 27 October 2012 06:50 AM

    al rasa...don't harp on that one incident only. Lasith has won a few matches for us in the past. Any one can have a bad day. Also it was part Mahela's fault for persisting with him when he was getting thrashed.

    truly Saturday, 27 October 2012 07:17 AM

    boy sooner u also going to resign...in these condition of SL no one can captain as his best except GOD

    Epic Fail.... !!

    richardson Saturday, 27 October 2012 09:56 AM

    We should win with out Mahela and Malinga ,both played for West Indies in the finals.

    They both shared the Man of the Match Award,though West Indies won the match..

    DO IT AGAIN BOYS!!!

    richardson Saturday, 27 October 2012 09:59 AM

    Those two must take a LONG HOLIDAY after their great contribution to the last finals.

    Malinga's great knock of 54 and Mahela" giving bowling to Malinga was a treat to watch.

    DO IT AGAIN BOYS. before that take a long Holiday in The West Indies.!!!

    Yohan Perera Saturday, 27 October 2012 10:57 AM
