Mathews pilots SL to 244

1 August 2018 06:30 pm - 3     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}



Despite losing Shehan Jayasuriya, Thisara Perera and Lakmal, Mathews played a calm hand of 79 not out to steer his side to a competitive total in the Sri Lanka vs South Africa, 2nd ODI held in Dambulla. South Africa did a good job at the back end of the innings by giving away just 51 off the final 10. But the track is offering enough purchase for spinners. On a used-up surface, Sri Lanka would fancy their chances.

    Mathews did not pilot, he laboured Sri Lanka to 244.Check how many DOT balls in Mathews innings? 50 dot balls.It is evidently clear that Mathews with all his experience is unable to rotate strike. This limited overs cricket and not test cricket.Please show him the door instead of creating a hype on behalf of Mathews.
