Poor fielding during the last few orvers and Malinga's wayward bowling contributed few extra fours to the 3 rd man & cost the match for us. Hope we learn hard way and do few changes in bowling for the next match.

Malinga is responsible for the defeat. Mahela should think twice before fielding Malinga when playing against India.

Bowling Malinga at the wrong time cost us the match. Bad decision by the captain. This is not the first time that Sri Lanka has lost games like this...Sad

Correct Saliya, Malinga is the main cause for this defeat and its Mahela's wrong deciision to have him at the wrong time.

Yes correct putha, Mahela is not a good captain like Sanga. He takes silly decisions at times. Lets drop Malinga for the next game and try our luck.

Malinga is OK, we are lacking of good capatancy.

Sanga & Mahela are not good capatains. Of course very good players. Don't blaim to Malinga, he is doing well, but still he has to improve a lot. Usuru Udana one reason, another one would have utilize spinners more. I am afraid of next captain for our Cricket, seems no one there.

Bowling Malinga towards the end did all the damage. Captain should learn a lesson from past experience.

What has happend to Malinga? Now (after contracting with Ambani) he is not bowling "Yorker".

Now he balls more Jokers than yokers.

You are correct, himal. In his two overs, 36th and 38th, Mali took two wickets conceding just seven runs. With two new batsmen at the crease, instead of continuing with Mali, 40th was given to Thisara, who went for 9 runs. 42nd and 44th were given to Udana who conceded 19. These bowling changes are difficult to understand although Mahela would have had good reasons.

Well Said. You are correct. But he was a great bowler in the past certainly he will come up very high soon. He is our No 1 bowler.

During Arjuna captancy we had only one Fast bowler (Vaas), but they never lost such scorred match, they are verymuch capable to give presure. But now, they can't manage. Why they took Isuru Udana, would have taken Sachiththra. I think Malinga is better than last matches, he did well. But captancy is so poor, we don't have good captain for Our Cricket Team as well as for Our Country.

Mahela played for India that's it
Why send in mendis before thisara , he has scored freely while mendis struggle d to get the ball to the fence
Not using all rangana's overs instead bowling Isuru.
No fine third man when the ball travelled so much to that area
Shame shame that so called bla..bla. Could not defend that big total!
