    Agreed, its better to stick to 7/4 with Sanath/Dilshan filling the 5th bowler quota and perhaps Chamara bowling a few overs too if required.

    For the Bangladesh game I would go with

    Upal Tharanga
    Sanath Jayasuriya
    Mahela Jayawardene
    Kumar Sangakkara
    Marvin Atapattu
    Tillakaratne Dilshan
    Chamara Silva
    Farveez Maharoof
    Chaminda Vaas
    Muttiah Muralitharan
    Lasith Malinga

    Don't see Arnold's worth in the team TBH.

    Agree with you about Arnold.

    But I would put Sangakkara at 3, Chamara Silva at 4 ,Atapattu at 5 and Mahela at 6 . I would like Mahela to stay at 6 for the moment .

    I rather have Silva down the order, his probably the closest thing we have to a lower hitter, probably at 6.

    IMO the best SL selection ATM is (in batting order)

    Sanath J
    Tharanga
    Sangakkara
    Chamara Silva
    Mahela
    Atapattu
    Dilshan
    Maharoof
    Vaas
    Malinga

    Agree with the side Jason, except for maybe Arnold in place of Atapattu. Isn't Marvan wasted that far down the order? He needs to come in higher if he is to play at all, imo.
    I reckon Arnold would be a better bet, though this is dependant on his form - iirc he has not played all that much in recent times. Also, Mahela needs to come in at 3 not at 5 and so needs to swap with Chamara - unless you want to protect Mahela from the new ball? If so, I disagree with that decision.

    So I would have:

    Sanath
    Upul
    Mahela
    Kumar
    Chamara
    Dilshan
    Russell
    Farveez
    Chaminda
    Lasith
    Murali

    Pity we cant watch it here in NZ, eh Jason?
    Damn, I hope we win....and win well.

    Atapattu hasn't done a bad job at 5 since his comeback. He started off as a middle order batsmen, so really there is nothing wrong with im down the order. With Silva and Dilshan in the side we do have players who can go up the order if we need quicker runs.

    Fair enough - just read some of the other comments regarding Arnold too.
    If he has not been in good enough nick, then Marvan should slot in.

    He does have to be at least at 5 though, certainly no lower. In which case Mahela can bat 3, Sanga at 4, Marvan at 5, and Chamara and Dilshan at 6 & 7 respectively.

    Actually, that is a much stronger batting line-up. _b

    Atapattu averages 40 at No 5, on par or better then when he open or batted at 3. Arnold been in very good form in OD Domestic Cricket, but the other 7 batsmen are better options.

    That's the pathetic aspect of Sky's coverage. They have missed out on showing the World Cup's huge upsets in Bangladesh v India and Pak v Ireland...

    And Now Bang v SL is a huge game for that group and they are not going to show it.

    The soccer equivalent would be like if Ivory Coast beat Italy in a group match but Sky did not show it becuase they did not expect an upset .... Dumb... (that's the India v Bang's equivalent in soccer terms, IMO)

    I have to disagree with you there about picking Arnold over Atapattu though ...Atapattu wherever he bats is a definite better option than Arnold in my opinion.

    Aaaahhhhh... if only.

    Sadly, the most wondrous batsman to walk this planet retired 4 years ago and I'd guess the more likely candidate for said slot would be a youngish man who has a very similar surname.

    SL in danger of getting kicked out of World Cup.

    If SL lose tomorrow, that risk looms large.

    Even if SL win against Bangladesh, If Bangladesh pulls off a big win against Bermuda or a Net Run rate boosting win, while SL lose to India , SL will get kicked and India and Bangladesh will still go through to Super 8s.

    For instance Bangladesh , if they win by 300 runs plus against Bermuda (lets say 350 in 50 overs and Bermuda are all out 50) then Bang will go thru....
