Sri Lanka is on the verge of eclipsing from the World Cricket, they need their saviors now
Sri Lanka has been struggling in the World Cup 2019 till now. The new Sri Lankan team doesn’t come even close to the 2011 Sri Lankan team in terms of quality which reached the finals. Since the retirement of legends Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Muttiah Muralitharan, and Tillakaratne Dilshan Sri Lanka haven’t found the proper replacements. There are some players in the Sri Lankan team who can revive the dooming Sri Lankan team.
If there is anyone who stands out in the playing eleven in the Sri Lankan team, it’s Lasith Malinga. The 35-year-old experienced Lasith Malinga may not have the same pace in his bowling but he surely hasn’t forgotten nailing Yorkers and deceptive slower balls with a slinging action. The former captain has taken 4 wickets in 3 games till now.
The Captain of the Sri Lanka Dimuth Karunaratne is the only batsman who has shown some restraint on the crease in the Sri Lankan side. He has scored 179 runs in 3 matches at an average of 89.50. He has been the standalone player who has put the opposition in pressure.
It is very rare that two pace attackers are have dominated our list. He proved his skills, potential and the ability to handle the pressure in the game against Australia. He bowled brilliantly in the death which had the right combination of cutters and Yorkers.
He is another batsman who has done well in the matches they have played till now. Kusal is second highest run-getter for Sri Lanka in the ongoing World Cup. We have seen some glimpses in the past where he emerged as the game changer.
The Strongest man in the team is on the list for a reason. The experienced Thisara Perera can destroy any bowling unit on his day. His sixes hitting ability in batting and some handy overs with the ball makes him one of the players from the Sri Lankan team to Watch.
