Cricket World Cup 2019 Sri Lanka Team Analysis
Thisara Perera with 512 runs at 39.38, the strike rate of 121.04 is leading the charge Sri Lankan batsmen scored 5.78 runs per year in the last 12 months. Only England (6.41) has scored faster than any. Along with Thisara Perera, Niroshan Dickwella and Kusal Perera, it is given the key in the Sri Lanka batting order. Both have scored more than 400 runs in the last 12 months, with strike rates of less than 100. Malinga, the second-best player in the world last year (17 to 28.05), is never a guarantee to play, given his age and his history of injuries.
Al-Rounder Force of Siri Lanka Team
Sri Lanka team score runs at a fast pace, they concede even faster. The team led by Seth Malinga has leaked the worst global figure of 6.21 in the last 12 months. No wonder they lost 12 of their last 16 ODIs. Troubling to Sri Lanka, its two best bowling players in the past year have had stoppages on the sidelines. Akila Dananjaya, right arm spinner of all varieties, has been its biggest threat to opponent’s team as it has taken26 wickets at 19.76 and is the most frugal bowler with the economy of 6.45 in the last 12 months. He has just returned to his duties after a season on the sidelines due to suspicious activity and will surely be the key factor in bowling line for Sri Lanka.
