Sri Lanka 2nd test memo

-Don’t leave out Prasanna Jayawardene. Dilshan did an OK job, but at the PSS the ball will spin and I wouldn’t want Dilshan making an error at a crucial time. Plus his batting is more important to the team than anything else.

Who should they leave out? It’s a tough call. And that’s why you have selectors.

-Do get ready for a Pakitan assault. u might smile, but all it takes is for Gul to find his 2020 form for more than 5-6 overs at a stretch and Pakistan will be dangerous with the new ball.

-Pakistan’s strength is in their fast men. Which is also Sri Lanka’s weakness.

-Don’t worry too much if you loose the toss. Out of the 13 matches when the team’s won the toss and batted 6 have ended in victory, 3 in losses.

-King Kumar – don’t bat like a god in the first 20 runs of your innings. Even Kings need to ease into business. Twice he got caught on the walk in Galle. It did not look pretty and we don’t really care for it too much.

Also it would be nice if Herath comes on a bit earlier than the 47 over.

-Warnapura- do get some runs soon, your credit rating is dropping at an alarming rate.

-Mahela- don’t edge the ball outside off when your team really needs you.

-Dilshan- the 2020 world cup is over. No more scoop shots thank you very much.

-Mendis- people are asking us why we still call you splendid. It is making us very uncomfortable. Kind of like sitting on the toilet seat in winter. We don’t like it one bit and it would be nice if you picked up a few wickets.

We know you got attacked in Lahore and all that but we thought you had put that behind you in England. We understand that Pakistan are a dirty bunch who seem to have figured you out but cmmon man. You owe us.
