Despite the fact that the Lions were led by Upul Tharanga the left handed batsman and occasional wicket keeper because of the hamstring injury to Angelo Mathews, replaced by Rangana Herath in ODI series against South Africa the Lankan will be moving forward in Champions Trophy under the captaincy of Angelo Mathews. There is no better option for Sri Lanka rather than Mathews, who had led the Lankan in many campaigns.
The Lions have not impressed the Sri Lankan cricket fans because of the fact that the Sri Lankan team now consists of the young cricketers who, despite having the potential and talent have failed to perform after the retirement of legendary cricketers such as Tilkaratne Dilshan, Kumara Sangakara and MahelaJawaradnay.
The Lankan need to learn from their mistakes, as there is no much time left for the grand cricket tournament of the year. After being steamrolled in the Test series with South Africa the Sri Lanka team managed to clinch the T20 series with 2-1 from South Africa, this shows the talent and skills of young Lankan side. If they managed to overcome their weaknesses who can say if they can win their first title for Champions Trophy without sharing it with co-winners.
