  4. vs Form guide West Indies WWLLW (last five completed matches, most recent first) Sri Lanka WLLLW Watch out for Marlon Samuels is one of eight men still standing from West Indies' title triumph in 2012. And it was his innings that refused Sri Lanka the joy of becoming world champions at home. A man capable of taking your breath away with his strokeplay and tear your hair out when he is out of form, Samuels continues to be an enigma 15 years since his debut. Dinesh Chandimal is remaking himself as a T20 opener. Some of that is because most reckon he can slip into Mahela Jayawardene's shoes. While that can be a heavy burden, Chandimal can turn it to his advantage. Presently he tries to hit the ball a bit too hard. For a batsman whose skill lies in timing and imagination, he does not need to rely on such crude tactics. Jayawardene certainly did not. Team news Indications from West Indies' training session on the eve of the match are that they would keep to the same XI that played England. They might be tempted to find a way to include Jason Holder, who had come out as an opener during the warm-up stage. West Indies (probable) 1.Chris Gayle, 2 Johnson Charles, 3 Marlon Samuels, 4 Dinesh Ramdin (wk), 5 Dwayne Bravo, 6 Andre Russell, 7 Darren Sammy, 8 Carlos Brathwaite, 9 Samuel Badree, 10 Jerome Taylor, Sulieman Benn. Sri Lanka do have plenty of bowling options, and that is bound to come useful. They may retain the same XI that beat Afghanistan last Thursday. Sri Lanka (probable) 1.Tillakaratne Dilshan, 2 Dinesh Chandimal (wk), 3 Lahiru Thirimanne, 4 Milinda Siriwardana, 5 Angelo Mathews (capt), 6 Thisara Perera, 7 Chamara Kapugedera, 8 Shehan Jayasuriya, 9 Nuwan Kulasekara, 10 Dushmantha Chameera, 11 Rangana Herath. Pitch and conditions Dharamsala and Nagpur have been slow on the take. Mumbai has been in the batsmen's pockets, and if history is anything to go by, Bangalore will be too. There was a tinge of green to the pitch at M Chinnaswamy stadium, but it is unlikely to hinder strokeplay. If anything, it might help the ball come onto the bat quicker. Chasing has been the favoured route here, even without the complication of dew. The forecast is for a clear day, but a cloudy night.

  6. Sri Lankan Lion

    Sri Lanka has adapted the lion as its (or one of its) symbol. Its cricket team is referred to as Lions as well by SL fans. However, I had never heard about anyone mentioning seeing real Lions in SL. It got me curious to find out more about the Sri Lankan Lion and its existence. A quick google search led to to wiki and below is what I found: This is very strange. From what I understand from the above: a) A couple of animal teeth were found b) Someone did some tests, whose details are not available, and determined that the teeth belong to a species of Lions c) These lions were extinct even before humans arrived in SL Another source debunks many of the myths associated with Lions in SL - Link Also, So is there any concrete evidence available that Lions existed in SL?
