Hmm reckon it is time to give Hasantha a game, Weijkoon has been pretty useless. Surprised that Dilhara has been decent in this form. Also the tactics Jayawardene has used with bowling has been right on the money. Would have bowled Dilshan when Weijkoon was getting smashed.
I disagree with that. Styris had an unfortunate decision, and had he got going, they would've got into 5th gear and reached 200 , IMHO. And then Bond and Martin and even Gillespie would have looked different bowlers defending a strong score.
WRT SL bowling, I would play Maharoof in place of Wijekoon and consider Lokuarachchi in place of Mubarak very strongly in crucial matches coming up.
As far as NZ selections, I think Bracewell's decision to keep a guy like Jeetan Patel sitting it out in matches like these where he could have made a difference is inexplicable, IMO.
