I agree the SL side on paper is a superior Test side, but they have a lot of issues with their batting - that can be exploited by BD. Starting with the openers. But as this is at home - they are certainly fav's going in. Re: Chandimal, he had a terrible tour of SA, although before that he had a good run. Problem with him is lack of consistency and shot selection. That is is why I said earlier this is a chance for him to get back into the fold - at home - against relatively easier opposition. It is also a big tour for Mendis - who is getting starts and then throwing them away. Hopefully something that is rectified with experience and on a tour like this.
I have a terrible feeling Mehedi will trouble all our batsmen who have been very average against spinners in the last 5 years.
