    Shows we have the talent and what is needed is commitment and application. It seems the new team management has got its act together. Well done and keep the momentum going to take on the Indians at home.

    We had talent all the time, but lacked courage and confidence. Add to that the management has to take part of the blame. Good luck and we need it.

    Wow!!! It was really colorful match from srilankan players . Akila's colors should be appreciated .and also being the most left arm wicket takener in the world ever. Rangana brought a pride for us.

    A good job done. Keep it up.

    Well done boys. I hope and pray that the Honourables’ from Diyawanna will not attempt to take credit and also Angie Mat will give permanent rest to his hamstring.

    We have a short memory when it comes to politics and cricket. Lack of gratitude with the latter.

    Well done and congratulation. This has especial significance that is winning a Test Match mainly through new youngsters. Akila's first test while Roshan's third test. It is not undermine the role other played especially captain. Hathurusinghe already proved his class as as the coach. If Hathurusinghe and senior players are genuine and more importantly our politicians do not have their hand, we can come up to a good level. Keep it up.
