Sri Lanka v Australia, 1st Test, Galle, 4th day September 3, 2011

I'm not going to change my batting - Dilshan

  shares 40

Tillakaratne Dilshan, the Sri Lanka captain, has said he will not consider changing the way he bats after a pair of impetuous innings contributed to his team's heavy defeat by Australia in the first Test in Galle.

Mahela Jayawardene and Angelo Mathews added 142 before being parted on the fourth day, showing what might have been achieved by Sri Lanka with a little more application on the most difficult of Galle pitches. Dilshan admitted his side's first innings surrender for 105 had been the key to their downfall, but has no intention of reining in his own game.

"We can't expect to get out for 105 in the first innings [and win]," Dilshan said. "That is why we lost this match. We can't give a 150-run lead, especially on this kind of wicket. We planned to get 220-230 runs [in the fourth innings] but unfortunately we had to get 400 runs.

"[But] I'm not going to change my batting, I've batted aggressively over the last three or four years and I want to play my shots. I play my natural game. Especially on a wicket that it is not easy to survive on, you have to play some shots and overcome that [challenge] with something special."

On the second morning Dilshan drove Trent Copeland's first ball for four then attempted to repeat the shot from the second and was pouched at short cover by Ricky Ponting. In the second innings he played a succession of questionable strokes before being bowled by Ryan Harris, helping open up the innings and the match for Australia.

Sri Lanka have now gone nine matches since last registering a Test victory, the sort of streak that puts Australia's struggles around the Ashes series into some perspective. The hosts are yet to win a Test since the retirement of Muttiah Muralitharan, who seems to have left the same sort of hole Richard Hadlee did for New Zealand when he retired in 1990.

"We have to find a way to win matches," Dilshan said. "After Murali retired, it is very difficult to win matches, but we've got new spinners. I look forward to winning upcoming matches.

The omission of Ajantha Mendis had been a talking point through the match, especially in the second innings when Suraj Randiv did not trouble Australia as much as a spin bowler might have expected to on a dastardly pitch. Dilshan defended the selectors' call.

"In the last few matches Randiv and [Rangana] Herath clearly did well for our team. Mendis played in the last Test series, but these two have been better overall. That is why we picked them. I feel they were a good choice for this wicket."

Sri Lanka's primary consolation came from Jayawardene and Mathews, who showed tremendous courage and skill to hold up Australia's attack. Dilshan said he had nurtured slims hopes for victory while Jayawardene was at the crease.

"Their fightback was great. After being 68 for five, I felt they put us in a winning position at one stage," he said. "Mahela batted really well, he showed his character and experience.

"He's batted in these kinds of situations a lot over the last six or seven years for Sri Lanka. When the team is struggling, he puts his hand up and puts runs on the board. Today he did the same thing. Unfortunately he got out to the new ball, but I'm really happy with the way these two batted."

    The series isn't over yet for Sri Lanka, & they could still win, but to me Dilshan is not a good captain. If SL pull off a come from behind series win, he'll probably be lauded a hero. The wicket keeper seems to me to be a better choice.

    My dear friends be cool.We have just beaten one match.Mr Jonathan Joseph , Para is not playing for Sangas club .So he is not a bady of Sanga.No point of talking about paras form since he was in the wicket when all the big guns are getting out.Do not talk about the batting style of Dilshan once he fails.Do not forget about what he had done using this style.Mr stephen is talking about dropping Sanga.Can anybody suggest the replacement??? I agree with the term of Dilshan is not an ideal captacy material.Angelo is too young to take this responsibility.He is our future. So I suggest Tilan Samaraweera is matured enough to take over the test captancy.Better to replace the out of form Randiv with Ajantha or Sekkuge prasa.Shamindra Eranga should replace either Lakmal or welagedara.

  • POSTED BY stormy16 on | September 4, 2011, 15:22 GMT

    You cant expect Dilshan to change his style just becuase he is captain after all its served him well after he was asked to open. When he come's off everyone marvels at his aggression and part of that bargain is he will also fail. His numbers suggest he comes off more than he doesnt and that's just the way its going to be. He is not a technical batter to suddenly start doing something he is not capable of. Love him or hate him this is his deal. I also dont agree that Paranawitharan should be dropped. He did a reasonable job in England and shows enough promise as a proper test bat to be given a fair chance to succeed. What I see as the biggest hurdle is batsman lacking mental toughness to handle the situation and I dont think changing the batting order or dropping guys will fix that.

If Wicket is tricky first adapt to the condition & situation especially Dilshan as a captain he must know is role. Paranavithana should replace with Thirumanne/Tharanga, Mathews should bat at No.5 we can't blame Mathews bowling unless he get a chance to bowl, Dilshan should give chance a to him because Mathews playing as batting all-rounder Mathews very intelligent cricketer, if Watson could pick wickets why not Mathews.

    @ Vishal, Sehwag is just a flat track bully when he plays aggressively. The only time in my life that I have ever seen Sehwag play well in hard conditions (and I've seen Sehwag play a lot) was in the 2nd test in Sri Lanka when he made 200* in hard conditions some 4-5 years back. The pitches that man has got his 300s are so flat it makes a flatscreen tv look bumpy

  • POSTED BY johnathonjosephs on | September 4, 2011, 9:10 GMT

    My god, ever since Dilshan has been captain of the Sri Lankan team, it has been a unsuccessful roller coaster ride. Better to give the captaincy back to Sanga or Mahela. Matthews is a good look, but I fear the captaincy will destroy his career this early on (Captaining the Sri Lankan team is extremely difficult as you are put under political pressure as well). Dilshan doesn't look like captain material after he injured his finger in England. How can any person in the team look up to him when he bats so irresponsibly? This has lots of inexperienced players and he gifts his wicket away. Do the Indians put Sehwag as their captain? Also its high time Paranavitana is put out of his misery and Warnapura/Thirimanne is put back. Only reason why parana was in was because he was on the same domestic side as Sanga and Sanga and him are good buddies. Sanga is not captain now, and the coattails should be cut

    @ stephan u cannot put a batsmen in the out of form bucket cuz he failed in one match..the suggestion to drop sanga is ridiculous.. as for the dilshan issue.. clearly he needs to improve.. and Mendis wud have been a better option too..but its easier to say these stuff after the match is over..

    now sri lankan team spirit is not like in the past.i have seen sanga encourage players when they were down.dilshan is not matured enough to be a captain.may be he is older enough,but his character and qualities are not suit for a captain in a national team.i think sanga is the best srilankan captain ever though he coudnt win the world cup.if u take all the successful captains sanga,arjuna,marven,dhoni,strauss..they are calm and gentle.but not dilshan.may be political influence.but this may take srilankan cricket to a bad end if the selectors dont take necessary steps.sanga or mahela captaincy with mathews as a vice captain will be a good option.by that way mathews can learn many things,to becaome a good captain oneday.

    We have to forget our golden boy Murali for the time being and find a replacement for him to win the forthcoming tests. No one is indispensable. Is't it? Without putting t runs on the board even Murali won't be able to win tests for Sri Lanka. Dilshan being the captain of Sri Lanka has made a foolish comment. He should adapt to the conditions and play his strokes. Being the captain of SL his responsibility is to win the games for SL and not to stick to his aggressive mindset to score quickly. Over to Sri Lankan selectors please.

  • POSTED BY on | September 4, 2011, 6:26 GMT

    His rash shots and comments show his immaturity. in this interview he starts off by saying that he wont change his style of batting and at the same time he says that Mahela's innings showed character and experience. well what about his character and experience? this should be a wake up call to selectors and all in charge of Sri Lanka cricket. Unfortunately politics decides these things in this country. The team that was selected for this game was also to question. where was Lahiru Thirimanne who scored a century in the warm up game? sangakkara is clearly out of form.why not drop him?and they bring in Samaraweera and paranavithana into the test team every time irrelevant of what kinda form they are in. also this was an ideal wicket for Ajantha mendis.where's the logic in dropping him?he along with Shaminda Eranga clearly troubled the aussie line up and would have been formidable on this wicket.

  • POSTED BY on | September 4, 2011, 3:35 GMT

    No one is asking Dilshan to change his batting style. Every batsman has his own style. However, as the captain he has to be responsible and lead by example while adapting whatever style he prefers. He cannot simply give away his wicket cheaply. It seems that his style of irresponsible batting has influenced some other team mates as well looking at the way Rangana Hearth batted. It was highly comical batting at its best by him in second innings. Just look at the way Aussie tailenders approached their task. It was also a poor peparation of a test wicket by some "higly knowledgeable ground staff of local conditions headed by Jayananda Warnaweera". It was assisting the Aussie pacemen more than Sri Lankan spinners in the end in terms of uneven bounce and reverse swing. No matter what explanation given droppping Ajantha Mendis was a huge mistake. Add to all that our pathetic batting performance in the first innings left us a mountain to climb in the second.

  • POSTED BY pradeep_dealwis on | September 4, 2011, 2:42 GMT

    @ MENDIS_Forever Interesting Comment, and something that i have been saying. Don't think spinning wickets are going to help SL that much. Of course no one can emulate the great WI attack, and i don't think it will suit SL either. A ore swing/reverse swing led attack will be good. Pakistan did it. Of course they were lucky to have some greats like Imran,Wasim and Waqar, and highlty likely SL will have any of that caliber anytime soon. But someone like Vaas with talent and dedication. That's what we need. Add a couple of fast tall fast guys to bowl in bouncy pitches, and a solid finger spinner that's a good attack. After all ENG has no special talent, just a solid and well organized bowling unit!

  • POSTED BY dsig3 on | September 3, 2011, 23:57 GMT

    As anyone who has played any form of cricket will know, if your captain plays an awful rash shot you immediately say to yourself: 'Well if he does it, he cant blame me for doing it". I dont care if they are at the highest level this still happens. Captains such as Gayle had the same issue. Dilshan is a great player but it is so hard to set an example with his style.

  • POSTED BY Garretjacks on | September 3, 2011, 23:50 GMT

    Like many other comments, I also think dilshan needs to try to see the new ball off with care and caution. Show patience and bat off the first 20 overs with caution to see the shine of the new ball. After that go for your shots. If he manages to do this it will relieve some pressure to the middle and lower order batsmen. His one day form is a bit of concern but I am sure he will do well the next time we play.

    I do agree his captaincy is a bit dodgy at times. People should realize the captaincy was thrown at him, he probably did not want it either but he had no choice to accept it, we therefore should be grateful for the fact he took the responsibility.

    Hoping to see Dilshan shine in the next two test matches and win the game for SL.

  • POSTED BY Zookinii on | September 3, 2011, 22:05 GMT

    When Dilshan plays his aggressive game and scores big we commend his technique and form, though many of us worry with so much panic as we fear he may be out next ball. However, a subdued Dilshan, playing more cautiously - first looking to build a platform, as he has done in some games looks much more dangerous and actually gives an impression that he will score big. Please Dilshan if you must bat aggressively, please do it after building a solid platform for the team first, otherwise you are only contributing to your team's difficulties and subsequent losses - please realize this fact. A leader needs to set an ideal example. If you play rash shots from ball one and get out, what will your team learn for this? I really wish Sanga would captain again.

  • POSTED BY Herath-UK on | September 3, 2011, 21:01 GMT

    While agreeing that he should not change his overall natural game,he has to be intelligent and circumspect at the beginning of a Test innings when so much depend on his contribution more so now because he is the captain.He could learn from Mahela who too shows agressive game whenever he opens for T20s and ODIs but in the Tests he curbs his agressive shots.Whatever it is Dilshan,what ultimately counts for your future as a captain is the results and if this is the way Sri Lanka is going to suffer in the coming games under you,no wonder your time is short.

    Dilshan was trying to mimic Watson, but Sehwag ghost is in him. Sehwag was successful since he played a lot of cricket against NZ, Bang teams and of course on tennis-court like flat pitches. Sehwag can afford to play baseball hits coz he was backed by solid middle order (in the past). Dilshan must drop to #4 or they will continue to be look like high school team against quality teams.

  • POSTED BY Balumekka on | September 3, 2011, 20:06 GMT

    @Vishal Sidana. Yes he may be lesser than Sehwag. Dilshan has not scored a double ton yet. He missed a double two months ago in England where he got out at 192 at Lord's against the very same English team against whom Sehwag got two ducks in both innings, three weeks ago!!!!!

  • POSTED BY on | September 3, 2011, 19:19 GMT

    Granted, each has to play his own game, but he has to play each ball on its merits instead of a preformed mindset. Test batting is not the same as T20. If Dilshan can appreciate the way Mahela batted, he could try a little bit to emulate that. Mind you, Mahela can play shots too.Part of the pressure Mahela had to bat through was due to the failure of Dilshan and others at the top.It is time for all to stop talking of Murali. What Lanka needs to search for is not another Murali but another Arjuna.

  • POSTED BY Mutukisna on | September 3, 2011, 17:46 GMT

    One of Dilshan's primary duties as an opener is to see off the shine in the new ball making it easier for the incoming batsman. He tries to achieve this by trying to reduce it to pulp in the opening overs. Show a bit of patience and get your eye in!Matthews at last showed some responsibility. If he failed in the second innings he deserved to be dropped.Randiv bowled so badly that he needs to be replaced by Seekuge Prasanna.SL should also try to accomodate Mendis. Another baffling question for the captain was that Welegedara having taken the first wicket off the first ball and had figures of 3-3-0-1, was not bowled until Khawaga had scored 26 and a total of 170 had been scored. He then gets Khawaga out off the first ball in his second spell having figures of 2 wickets for no runs. What was the captain thinking in this long interim period? He was wrongly concentraing on spin. Harris showed that pace also produced results. The selectors should think of appointing another captain soon.

    Playing strokes is one thing, having a rash fling at the start of the innings on a bad pitch is another. Dilshan has to realize that a captain has to adapt to the needs of his side or he won't be captain very long. SL look to have a murky future; their great players are in their mid-thirties now, their matchwinner Murali has gone, Malinga can't play in tests and the young players don't seem to be of the same standard, except possibly Mathews. The first thing they need to do to get better is to stop producing bad pitches. Young players need to play on good pitches in order to get better.

    This is not a good attitude by TD. As the captain of the team, he should have open mind and adjust according to situations. His repeated failures is exposing middle order to the new ball too soon and contributing to batting collapses. I think they need to bring in Upul to open and push Dilshan to no.5. Mathews should be dropped from tests, not counting his recent 95 in a losing cause. His bowling has become completely useless. I see 3-0 whitewash for SL.
