Match facts


Tuesday, May 6, Clontarf
Start time 1045 (0945 GMT)

Big Picture


Sri Lanka will shudder at the thought of losing to an Associate nation for the usual reasons, but a drawn or lost series could also be particularly grim for interim coach Marvan Atapattu, whose audition for the permanent job begins with this trip.

The loss of Thisara Perera has left the squad looking decidedly green, particularly in foreign conditions. Aside from Thirimanne, and increasingly, Angelo Mathews, few of the top order possess the temperament to thrive on early-season Irish pitches. Sri Lanka are without six frontline players, five rested seniors and Thisara Perera, who failed to acquire an Ireland visa thanks to his time at the IPL.

Predictably, this leg of the tour is about blooding youngsters - particularly batsmen. Kithuruwan Vithanage and Ashan Priyanjan will almost certainly have places in the middle order, and while Priyanjan appears the frontrunner to take a place in Sri Lanka's ODI squad to England, Vithanage has the chance to force himself into the mix.

So consistent has been the narrative as Ireland inch ever closer towards acceptance among cricket's elite that they should discover a few setbacks along the way has been hard for some to comprehend. Ireland's defeat against Netherlands as they failed to qualify for the finals of World Twenty20 was one such moment. Time is, nevertheless, a great healer and six weeks on Ireland go into this week's ODI series against Sri Lanka as the underdogs once again.

Nine months out from a third World Cup appearance, there are issues - uncovered during the winter - that need addressing. Consistency in selection has been the cornerstone of recent success but chinks are appearing: Boyd Rankin's decision to decamp, the retirement of Trent Johnston and the absence of John Mooney have brought uncertainty in the lower order. With little game time between now and the World Cup in Australia/New Zealand, there is scant opportunity for experimentation.

In the spotlight


Making 23-year-old Dinesh Chandimal the T20 captain and ODI and Test vice-captain was always a gamble, but a year after he had been appointed, the selectors effectively conceded it had not paid off, when they relieved Chandimal of his leadership roles. Despite his foundering in Asia, Chandimal remains a good prospect, not only because of a Test record that remains decent, but because he has prospered in faster, bouncier conditions Sri Lanka batsmen often take years to master. Without a clot of seniors blocking out top-order spots in Ireland, Chandimal will likely have the chance to choose where he bats. He will probably be retained for the England ODIs regardless of his output in Dublin, but at least one good score against Ireland may help put the edge back into his cricket.

Team news

Ireland have six players released by their English counties to play in this series including captain Will Porterfield from Warwickshire and opening bowler Tim Murtagh from Middlesex.

Ireland (possibly) 1 William Porterfield (capt), 2 Paul Stirling, 3 Ed Joyce, 4 Niall O'Brien, 5 Gary Wilson (wkt), 6 Kevin O'Brien, 7 Andrew Poynter, 8 Stuart Thompson, 9 Max Sorensen, 10 George Dockrell, 11 Tim Murtagh

Sri Lanka may be tempted to open with Upul Tharanga, in order to allow Lahiru Thirimanne a chance at batting at his favoured no. 3 spot, but that may create complications with the jostle for middle order positions. Fast bowlers Shaminda Eranga and Dhammika Prasad will also complete for a place.

Sri Lanka (probable): 1. Kusal Perera, 2. Upul Tharanga, 3. Lahiru Thirimanne, 4. Dinesh Chandimal (wk), 5. Kithuruwan Vithanage, 6. Ashan Priyanjan, 7. Angelo Mathews (c), 8. Nuwan Kulasekara, 9. Sachithra Senanayake, 10. Dhammika Prasad/Shaminda Eranga, 11. Suranga Lakmal

Pitch and conditions


Expect it to be green and seaming: the question is just how green and seaming. If the hosts' quicks can claim early scalps on a seaming surface, they may expose a middle order more used to taking risks and dominating than surviving and rebuilding.

Quotes


"The back-end of the innings is something we need to improve on in terms of death bowling and that was highlighted in the Holland game. The big things for ourselves is trying to take wickets in the middle overs because with the two new balls now, teams are aiming to keep wickets in hand and build a platform for the final ten overs or so."
William Porterfield, Ireland captain, learning lessons from defeat against Netherlands.

    SL badly needs an experienced OPENER to stem the inning in upcoming ODI series & for the future, including WC. Wasting anymore time with a substandard guy, who was parachuted to the ODI side in 2013, at the expense of 8th highest all time Run-maker for SL, is a CRIME! Persisting with an unskilled, substandard opener like KUSAL would certainly cost heavily for SL, in the Eng series as well as 2015 WC! He has managed just 17 RUNS in SIX consecutive innings at an astonishing AVERAGE of 2.9 on lively Fast-decks! Whenever he appear in these conditions, the lacking skills are clearly visible! How on earth, a player like him GET REPEATEDLY SELECTED for 50 over games? IT is high time for Sanath to bring back SL's most experienced young 28yr opener Upul Tharanga, who has scored 13 CENTURIES + 28x50s all over the world in ODIs. This includes 2 CENTURIES vs Eng in England. This is Tharanga's Record in Eng: Batting Average 69.40 -S/R 84.42 - 5 Inning -347 Runs - 100sx2 + 50sx1 (HS 120)..!

    Good win for Sri Lanka.Congrats Important thing is Chandi came to some kind of the form. He is best batsmen in English moving bowl conditions.so it's very important he is in form. Priyanjan also played positively.it's good sign for SL cricket future Pls give chance to Niroshan Dickwella instead of Upul Tharanga. and Chathuranga De Silva instead of Kithruwan.

    The gate has been opened yet again by KUSAL PERERA for the SIXTH CONSECUTIVE TIME on fast-decks in pace friendly conditions with another FOUR-ball DUCK!! He has not survived more than 10 Balls in six consecutive matches, played in these conditions! If someone is trying to justify his inclusion… then it can't be for the interest of SL Cricket! This is his career record on fast decks: 0 Runs -(1 Balls v NZ -Cardiff -9/06/13) (6 R -10 B -v Eng- The Oval-13/06/13) (4 R-2 B -v Aus-The Oval -17/06/13) (4 R-10 B -v India -Cardiff -20/06/13) (2 R-1 B -v India -Port of Spain -11/07/13)( 0 R - 4 B -v Ireland - 06/05/14). The other Guy who DOESN'T BELONG IN THE SQUAD is KITHU VITHANAGE . He is the only other guy who couldn't survive 5 balls! UPUL THARANGA & DINESH CHANDIMAL Showed how valuable they are in these conditions. If not for experienced Upul's role as an opener, SL could have collapsed further from that 2 down situation,SL desperately need the service of Upul Tharanga in ODIs/Tests

    our young team is way ahead than ireland team but needs to develop batting to face quality fast bowling & Chandimal is a future prospect no doubt about that specially on live pitches.... best of luck srilanka

  • rizwan1981 on May 6, 2014, 10:53 GMT

    Quite a number of folks here are dissing Tharanga little realising that the matches are being played on seaming pitches in Ireland/ England in EARLY Summer - Kusal Perera's technique is not suited to play the moving ball - Tharanga has plenty of experience of batting when its nippy .

    Only Sanga , Tharanga , Mahela and Prasanna Jayawardena have the technique to stand the scrutiny of Anderson and Co. in test matches.Marvan should seriously consider playing 3 opening batsmen in the tests to protect the big 2 in the middle.Sunil Gavaskar was a proponent of the 3 opening batsmen in seaming and bouncy tracks .

  • SurathJW on May 6, 2014, 8:44 GMT

    Come on Dinesh! Show these haters what you can do when you get to bat at the right spot! DC is the next MJ in the SL line up.

  • Hareendra on May 6, 2014, 8:28 GMT

    I wouldn't play Thranga and I think No 7 for Mathews is ridiculous! He is our best ODI batsman, so I think he should be playing at No 5.

    My 11: Kusal, Thirimanne, Kithruwan, Chandimal, Mathews, Priyanjan, Chaturanga, Kulasekara, Senanayake, Eranga, Lakmal.

    Of course I would play Thisara instead of chaturanga had he been available.

  • i.Peiris on May 6, 2014, 7:44 GMT

    Why use Chandimal instead of Kusal Perera, as the Keeper??? Is this an attempt to squeeze in the out-of-form Chandimal in to the playing 11? I guess the selectors have forgotten the praise Kusal earned from the Aussie commentators (esp. Healy)! This is unfair on both of them. I wish SL Selectors could find other means to help out-of-form players to re-earn their place (County, Sheffield or even Ranji Tr. Cricket, if Local Domestic circuit is not a Sufficient indicator)!

  • Udendra on May 6, 2014, 6:10 GMT

    the point everyone is missing is that Kulasekara, Eranga & Lakmal are very good swing/seam bowlers. And if conditions favour them, Ireland is in trouble.

  • on May 6, 2014, 4:02 GMT

    Sanath... Give more opportunists to Anjelo perera, Fervaze Maharoof. Where is the ANJELO MENDIS. Is he in out of form.

    Marven...Use chaturanga de Silva properly. You can make him a very good all rounder.

  • Htc-Android on May 6, 2014, 3:18 GMT

    Good team selection from SL. I think Tharanga should bat in the middle order as he is vulnerable against swing.Thirimanne should open the innings.

  • THEBEAST7 on May 6, 2014, 3:14 GMT

    If any of the guys from SL camp reading this, Guys, all you need to do is to try and bat the full quota of 50 overs. That will do the trick as if you bat all your overs, runs will come eventually. Please come good Chandi as I have always backed you to do well in number 4 slot. Show your haters what you can do. Tharanga? AGAIN? gosh, how many chances does this fellow get? He is the "Dilhara Fernando" in SL batting line up! If we are planing for the 2015 World Cup, in fast, bouncy pitches, Tharanga is the worst player to open as he has a very bad technique out side the off stump line! Please give the chance for a youngster. All the best!

  • cjchanaka on May 6, 2014, 2:13 GMT

    First of all we can't do experiments in upcoming matches before WC, we have to give enough exposure to the certain players who will be in the WC squad 2015.Marwan also had mentioned that plan before they were leaving to this tour. Therefore I can't understand the inclusion of tharanga in to the team.We have given enough chances for him,but he didn't utilize them.And also what is the point to change the opening pair who did extremely well in asia cup.So team should be kusal,thiri,chandi,ashan,kithruwan,mathews,chathuranga,kule,sachi,lakmal,eranga/prasad.ALL THE BEST BOYS..................

  • on May 6, 2014, 1:24 GMT

    YsaKaru: There are many great ODI batsmen who have started slowly but later blossomed into top quality batters. Sanath Jayasuriya is one of them. May be selectors see something about Kithruwan that we do not see purely from statistics. His first class average is a mighty 82+. That means he can bat. Probably it is matter adjusting to a different role in ODIs.

  • on May 6, 2014, 0:44 GMT

  • TheKeeper on May 5, 2014, 22:02 GMT

  • CodandChips on May 5, 2014, 20:44 GMT

    No doubt Sri Lanka are a good team. But with a weakened team, the first match in foreign conditions, and if the Irish crowd can get going like they did against England, I can only see one result.

    Ireland have some quality players but lack depth. Tim Murtagh has been a quality performer in county cricket for years, so it's no wonder he chose to qualify for Ireland and take his opportunity of county cricket. Dockrell and Stirling are quality young players.Joyce is in excellent form from playing for Sussex.

    The O'brien brothers are no doubt talented. I'm sure Kevin would benefit from some time in county cricket, otherwise he is in danger of being a one innings wonder.

    Porterfield is no doubt an excellent leader, and he scored a true captain's hundred vs England, but I have doubts about him. His county record isn't great and suggests a lack of quality, which for me explains why his batting always seems too pedestrian.

    Hopefully with Ashley Giles gone, Rankin can go back to Ireland

  • priceless1 on May 5, 2014, 19:51 GMT

    Priyanjan's has a serious weakness out side the off stump when facing fats bowlers , i hope Marvan has fixed it , otherwise he will be useless in English conditions

  • Kotuwegogoda on May 5, 2014, 19:16 GMT

    It's nice way to start the English tour winning two out of two. But.... this won't be a walk in the park as Ireland have given enough headaches to visiting Test playing countries. Resting veterans and insert untested budding youth would not be the ideal way to begin the tour.

    Since Marvan is debuting coaching stint at International scene he would need all Assistant coaches and support staff to do their part fully well.

    Then, Angelo and Thirimanne should lead from the front in every facets of the game. The task thereafter would be relatively easier than making it tough for themselves.

  • KingOwl on May 5, 2014, 18:06 GMT

    The SL team definitely looks like an A team. But, I think they should be able to compete. It will be a good opportunity for them. But at the same time, I feel that the senior players should have played in one of the two matches against the Irish. The senior players need getting adjusted with some match practice in seaming conditions a lot more than the junior players (who will anyway not play in the test matches).

  • on May 5, 2014, 17:41 GMT
