3rd odi Sri lanka vs England analysis :Two big changes for sri lanka in fourth ODI

It was a day started with joy and ended up with utter dissapoinment for the lankans where they scored 55-0 in first 5 overs and just 95 for 9 wickets for rest 16 in rain affected 3 rd odi .The only positive was sri lanka could see 50 plus partnership for opening wicket after a while.Remarkable thing was new choice at no 3 kusal mendis failing to score and gone for a duck for 3 rd consecutive inning dissapointing the passionate lankan fans.He was selected in place of experienced upul tharanga who has got some success in middle order compared to the other sri lankan batsmen.Also the bowling of sri lankan pacers were not upto the mark which gifted england the match.Kusal Mendis may deserve another chance for atleast 1 odi considering the promise he brought to the lankan fans in his first few matches but surely this is not the time to test for lankans as they must surely look for a victory so they should try the veteran upul in place of Mendis for next match.Being unsuccecsful to justify his selection of pradeep sri lanka should surely give chance for chameera/rajitha to atleast try making a mark to turn the match for sri lanka if they go for 4 specialist bowlers .Other considerable points is de silva playing at 6 deserve to play at 3 being the best batsmen of current team as he is unable to go and hit it out of ground from first ball as you saw yesterday so sri lanka can atleast take some consistency into team as we talked in previous post.Join with us D FACTO team for interesting reviews and if u missed our previous post on discussion on team selection for the worldcup,do not hesitate to see and comment your ideas on our blog.Cheers!!!
