Sri Lanka’s gross disregard for public opinion
The perception among the general public is that the players simply don’t care about the rot cricket is in at the moment. Given last week’s angry crowd reaction at Pallekele, Sri Lanka Cricket should have sent a stern warning to the players to watch their status in public domain.

A proper structure could save the game of cricket - Carlton Bernadus
Talking about the much flaunted Provincial system, Bernadus says looking at needs of today and how modern international cricketers see it, he feels one also should get serious about provincial cricket. “They not only have a wealth of experience after playing at the highest level, but they have to see how it is done in other countries. You must put out what is best for your country”.

Why Test cricket still needs its fifth day
That’s about to change. Cricket South Africa wants to stage a four-day day-night Test against Zimbabwe this winter. They’re going to petition the ICC for permission at the Chief Executives Conference in New Zealand next week. And given that the game’s many mandarins have been talking up four-day Tests for some time now, it seems CSA is likely to get its way. Officials from England, South Africa, Sri Lanka and New Zealand have all spoken out in support of the idea in the last year or so. Their thinking is that since so few games last more than 400 overs, you can squeeze them down by stretching play later into the evening and making the players get through more overs in the day. This game is likely to be the first of many.

Should Dilshan have continued until Cricket World Cup 2019?

Yes No

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews


Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
