Sri Lanka Playing 11: Sri Lanka came into the world cup as the Asian champions but the conditions in which the Asia Cup happened was completely alien to where the world cup is happening at the moment. They were also lucky with the toss in Asia cup but since the toss hasn’t played much of a role in Australia, Sri Lanka have been found wanting. Their inability to play quality pace has been brutally exposed and their pace bowling has been bizarre. They were unfortunate as their lead fast bowler got injured in the group stages of the world cup, there has been no depth in their squad.
