Sri Lanka Squad for T20 World Cup 2012
Sri Lankan Squad for T20 World Cup 2012
T20 World Cup 2012 Sri Lanka Team is placed here. Sri Lanka looks to ride history and dilute negatives. Sri Lanka may have the peach of home advantage at T20 World Cup 2012, but might not have the resource to pull a stunner.
Their batting is agreeably classy with Jayawardhane calling the shots and captain Dilshan the scoops. Sangakkara is an elegant southpaw and Chandimal shows promise. However, they lack the zing and clatter required in 20-over contests. They do have the services of a quality all rounder however in Angelo Matthews. The above named vaunted players have literally grown on Lankan pitches and may wreak serious havoc.
Their bowling appears half-baked and many of their operators appear as clone of one another, thus making them predictable. Malinga is an absolute delight to watch with his yorkers and slow balls, but he gets ridiculous pace support. Their spin also lacks venom with only Herath commanding some attention now that Mendis has ceased to be mystical. This is bound to backfire on pitches tailor-made for huge scores. Their fielding is above-par though.
Sri Lanka is a classic example of a flow team that flourishes when in flow and desiccates when things don’t turn right. History however ordains a fine performance from them as they reached the finals of 50-over World Cup both times they were held on their backyard.
