    Now he balls more Jokers than yokers.

    meranchi Sunday, 29 July 2012 07:13 AM

    fielding department must improve lot again [like roshan mahanama] and some of the bowler also need to improve their tactic well. front bating department also have to think the game is on their shoulder ....i

    Come on what about the two wickets he got from 2 balls?He brought us back to the game

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

    Kiris Baba Amarray Sunday, 29 July 2012 09:25 AM

    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.

    Roshan Sunday, 29 July 2012 09:31 AM

    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.

    Roshan Sunday, 29 July 2012 11:35 AM

    Malinga is OK, we are lacking of good capatancy.

    Roshan Sunday, 29 July 2012 11:41 AM

    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.

    Senna Sunday, 29 July 2012 12:51 PM

    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.

    Sam Sunday, 29 July 2012 01:05 PM

    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!

    Senna Saturday, 28 July 2012 07:57 PM

    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.

    MarikkarMarikkar Saturday, 28 July 2012 09:17 PM

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

    Saliya A Saturday, 28 July 2012 09:59 PM

    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
    .

    Saliya A Saturday, 28 July 2012 10:11 PM

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

    Abbagathaya Sunday, 29 July 2012 12:20 AM

    Sri Lanka team is good for nothing!!

    Jagath Leanage Sunday, 29 July 2012 02:31 AM

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