Jayasuriya-led Lanka selection panel quits after flop show vs India

India vs Sri Lanka

India vs Sri Lanka

The two-day conference is being jointly organised by the India Foundation, the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS), Singapore and the National Institute of Fundamental Studies (NIFS), Colombo. In the space of two innings now, he has scored 54 and 124 not out. Danushka Gunathilaka has been ruled out with a shoulder strain (though there remains a small possibility he could recover in time for the next match), and Upul Tharanga has been suspended due to a slow over rate.

There was a little grass on the Khettarama surface on the eve of the match, which suggests there will be a little more pace and carry than is ordinarily seen at this venue.

Malinga needs just one wicket to take his career ODI haul to 300, but he is not preoccupied with reaching the milestone. He will be 13th bowler overall, and the fourth Sri Lankan after Muttiah Muralitharan, Chaminda Vaas and Sanath Jayasuriya, to the milestone. Still three cricket matches are remaining and the 4th ODI is one of those games which are yet to be played. They've spoken about their old days at Mumbai Indians together, and how Malinga's body is still holding up, but also about what Malinga could do to regain his wicket-taking ability. He becomes Sri Lanka's fifth captain in this tour and third captain in ODI series.

The Dinesh Chandimal-led Test team was also whitewashed 0-3 in the Test series preceding the limited overs series.

"This government is committed to making Sri Lanka a global trading hub - and we can not achieve that with the key trade facilitation agency having almost 200-year-old legislation". In fact, there has been more talk in the last couple of months than in 14 previous years that I've played, but I'm used to that. "The team and I have to build a mentality whereby we don't feel pressure", he added. Also, the players' injuries have hampered the team's strength a lot right from the start of the series. "People think we are not top of the table, but I feel we can change that". "Earlier, cricketers were confident that they will be retained in the team, but now they don't know whether they will play the next match", he said, accusing the administration of allowing political interference.
