Sri Lanka surely has added new players to their ranks and it will take time to get them polished and perform at bigger stage of the game. Of course if great layers leave your team. Team fdo suffer a bit. Then their young talent should come forward and must take responsibility to take the team towards victories.
Australia is now a days at tour of Sri Lanka. Series started with a test match at Pallekele. Angelo Mathews won the toss and elected to bat first. Angelo must’ve thought of putting up a big total but Australian bowling denied him to do so and kept Sri Lanka batsmen on a small total.
Almost every Lanka batsman failed in front of Aussies. Only players reached double figures in their innings. It was combined bowling effort of O’Keefe, Hezzlewood, Lyon and Starc that restricted Sri Lankans to a small total of just 117 runs.
Wickets kept on tumbling for Lankans. When Australia started of their innings they looked better the Sri Lankans and played carefully. Pallekele is one of the famous venues that suffer much rain fall.
As it happened here it was merely start of Aussies innings, it started raining. Only 20 overs were bowled by Sri Lanka and Aussies scored 66 runs by losing 2 wickets. Despite having a lot of youngsters in team, it was a better performance by the Sri Lankans.
