Malinga to lead SL in semi

Lasith Malinga, who skippered the team in Sri Lanka's last group match against New Zealand, will captain the team at the semi final, media reports said.

According to media reports, Chandimal has "opted out" leaving the captaincy role to Malinga, who will also spearhead the bowling attack. With Chandimal opting out, Lahiru Thirimanne will surely get his second game of the tournament. The left-handed Thirimanne is a solid middle-order option and should bat at No. 5 after Kumar Sangakkara.

The 24-year-old Chandimal has been in sketchy form in recent weeks. He scored 12 in a group match against South Africa and did not get to bat against Netherlands and England. He was dropped for the game against New Zealand. Thirimanne, also 24, scored 20 off 18 balls against the Kiwis.

    SL will not leave out Dilshan at a crucial stage of the tournament and your batting line up looks very thin.
    On top of everything, your first line should say " SL will win if the play better than WI". Leave out the rest...Your comment sounds like booking...

    Lets let the team play on their own style, that way we surely can have the cup.

    First time I saw a player "opting out" of a team!

    Yes very true. Sachithra is the best bet for limited version as a spinner and a dependable batsman. Then comes Ajantha. Herath may be good for West Indies but definitely not for Indians

    Prasanna Thursday, 03 April 2014 09:25 AM

    ane mu danna magula....we gain playing against WI not with the team from ur village...
