    Well done boys. As Arjuna mentioned earlier we need a serious thought on middle order.

    avathaany Monday, 21 February 2011 02:43 PM

    Ranjith Monday, 21 February 2011 06:54 AM

    Not both operners but the two friends Sanga and Tharanga during fist part of the innings. Sanga should come down @ no 5 or 6. Tilan and Angelo move up

    Ranjith Monday, 21 February 2011 07:02 AM

    Only Tharanga and Sanga struglled

    Tippy Sunday, 20 February 2011 04:23 PM

    Chinthana Monday, 21 February 2011 07:16 AM

    Do not brand people 'anti SL' like your great politicians do by labelling the heroes as traitors. They are not anti SL but anti jarapakses

    kalum Sunday, 20 February 2011 04:37 PM

    Canada is too easy but with pakistan you have to give full power.

    segu Sunday, 20 February 2011 04:42 PM

    as Arguna pointed out, middle order needs to be strengthened. Mahela's position needs to be replaced by either Kapu or Tilan and Mahela needs take their position.

    "The Miracle Of Asia" as some dumb anti Sri Lankan would say for anything!

    Anver Monday, 21 February 2011 01:07 AM

    Was not very impressed with the openers. They gave too many dot balls. Hope they will correct the problem in the coming matches.

    Ryan Monday, 21 February 2011 10:39 AM

    Only thing is people enjoyed a lot yesterday as SL batted first. Thanks SL for the decision.

    prabath Monday, 21 February 2011 03:02 AM

    Top Sri Lankan Monday, 21 February 2011 04:11 AM

    Not a bad news, but will all blacks celebrate after beating Nepal?

    pasha Monday, 21 February 2011 04:16 AM

    ICC should stop these children team participating in big world cup. it is making cricket boring.

    KIRI PUTHA Monday, 21 February 2011 04:13 AM

    Rosy Monday, 21 February 2011 12:26 PM

    Romel Monday, 21 February 2011 12:29 PM

    India is not in the running at all.
    Who knows if they have any luck at all.

    Guru Monday, 21 February 2011 04:52 AM

    Beating a team like Canada is nothing to be proud of.

    Rameez Monday, 21 February 2011 12:31 PM

    Don't worry there will be celebrations - a bit more to go.

    C. Senthilan Monday, 21 February 2011 01:12 PM

    Hats off to Canadian team which has a Tamil with it whereas Srilanka also has only one Tamil. No place at all for Norther East Tamils.

    asoka abeywardena Monday, 21 February 2011 05:42 AM

    we are happy about the winning...but there's nothing to celebrate...

    Calistus J. Monday, 21 February 2011 05:48 AM

    Canadian is not a team with test status... and having inexperience players...still our middle order batsmen did not do well in the match.
