Sri Lankan Criciket always had a tremendous players, they were strugling with one step back against pulling victories, Now with openers and the middle excluding Sanga & Mahela, srilanka looks very fresh and touch to beat with chandimal, mathews himself(Mathews again proved well that he is good to lead, a very good allrounder captain) & thirumanne i hope they will continue to pull the victories constantly especially against their best rival Indians. Good luck Mathews !! Good Luck SL -baji
