couple of things srilanka could have done differently versus Australia today

  1. Australia had decent set of bowlers bowling when sangakara and mahela were bowling.  They were missing up the deliveries nicely and varying the pace.  More importantly they were bowling to fields and wanted the batsmen to take risks in uncovered areas in the field.  Did srilanka pose nice questions?  There were not many.  Australians weren't challenged much.
  2. Required run rate was 10 however the current kept falling to 6 from previous heights.  From the time Dilshan got out to the time sangakara was caught,  the run rate kept falling down. Being steady is important but more important while chasing big totals is to score at rate relevant for target and not allow the pressure to creep in.  Anchors at two ends is not required.  Chandimal or angel could have been promoted early at one end.
  3. Srilanka bowling was clueless when maxwell started toting With it.  Looking back they didn't have many bowling options honestly.
