    Horrible horrible batting. I usually appreciate what other players do but this was just ridiculous batting by Younus and Afridi, the only decent ball was to Sarfraz

    Thisara has got very good success even against our batting as well. He just seems to produce these match winning spells every now and again from nowhere. He is a great prospect for SL team as a bowling all-rounder who could hit big when it required.

    What is up with Perera? To me his bowling doesn't look anything special, but look at his one day record. He may be too expensive, but he is a serious wicket taker. It can't be fluke cos it keeps happening. I'm not saying he's bad just dont get how he is averaging better than Malinga.

    Batsmen try to play out Malinga, and often getting out to Parera with "risk on" shots.

    In whatever the game I have seen him play, he bowls mainly around off-stump(more like a wicket to wicket bowler) and out side off stump with just short of full length ball that's going for runs at the same time getting wickets regularly(besides he is no trundler, he bowls consistently at mid to high 130's). This is just my observation.

    Yes I have seen him many times and he's definitely no trundler. At the same time I would not expect him to take so many wickets, but you are probably right. Let's see if he can keep this up. Average of 23 which is amazing and economy of 5.3 which is poor, overall a very valuable bowler.

    The guy took 6 wickets in the 2nd ODI as well. That's 10 wickets in 2 matches now. Quite an effort, can't be lucky all the times. A trundlindian never got that lucky


    A typical street smart Lankan swing bowler. At a glance none of them look great but they do the job more often than not.

    Another lalloo we've made to look good - along with the likes of David 'Murali' Hussey, Simon 'Warne' Katich and about a thousand other bits and pieces, part-timers.

    Our batsmen's shot selection was appalling, gifting their wickets away.

    Who's next ? Sanath Jayasuriya will probably quit the commentary box and skittle through our batting lineup for old times sake.

    And well done Perera.

    I am just watching the highlights and have to say that was the worse I seen us bat in a game. YK walks down and then was in no position to run it to third man. Afridi threw the towel in as usual with a nothing shot and Sarfraz was giving catching practice.

    Lol some ridiculous comments from posters.As it is,difficult to find good bowlers in plenty these days because of the pitches.so give credit where it is due.Seems all of u want a good bowler,a bowler who bowls at a pace of over 145 kmph,takes 3 wickets every match and those wickets must be the top order batsman,only then u will accept him as a good bowler.

    Because of the pressure put every match on these youngsters combined with excessive cricket,is the reason world is not producing lot of great bowlers these days like in the nineties.

    Spectacular ignorance by the Posters here

    I'm amazed to see some of the comments here, all of ya who are branding him as a trundler, should see the speeds he can touch. Easily can get upto 140ish, which is decent and above the trundler's benchmark. Moreover he already has more 5fers than Umar Gul, Cheema, Riaz, already has a better average than all these so called Expresses".

    I remember seeing him giving a hard time to Aussies in Their den.

    Grow up guys,he is making his performances take notice. Give appreciation where it's due.

    Both shots were equally awful.

    Why should a trundler not be a good bowler - this is not test cricket. What a poor argument to dismiss him. Perera is not so great but he appears to be good at what he does. He will be an asset to the SL team.

    Wouldn't go as far as calling Perera a trundler he looks a decent bowler actually although he did nothing special to get this hattrick just poor batting. That gives you an idea though about the pakistani batting, they have no one in the class of Mahela and Sangakkara just block or smash players, atleast Misbah and Azhar deserve some credit for holding the batting together. Srilanka have far superior batting and fielding units compared to Pakistan.Only chance for Pakistan is their bowling and that also their spinners their fast bowling is below par ATM Srilanka;s fast bowlers even the so called trundler Perera are far superior to the Pakistani pacemen and Lanka's Premier Paceman Malinga is well ahead of . Lol dont expect Pakistan to win unless Srilanka play exceptionally poor cricket or we get a special.

    That was the worst hattrick i have seen. All gifted wickets:

    There are quite alot of proper hattricks example:

    Lol Perera maybe a trundler but he is better than any of the pacemen Pakistan have ATM. Gul was busy getting hammered and dropping catches for Pak whereas the Srilankan pacers kept things tight and Pakistan capitulated. What is the team for todays match? is that trundler Hameed Azam playing today hopefully we can beat SL.

    i think we pak fans should show some magnanimity (whoops have i spelt it correctly) Parera is a great find for Sri lanka, very impressive allrounder. strong, fast and very athletic should be a great allrounder for them for years to come and alongside mathews and Chandimal they have quite an impressive lower middle order

    He was done well against other countries as well especially India, IIRC he has a couple of five wicket hauls against them. IMO a lot of people here are underrating Thisara,this guy is a pretty useful bowler especially in ODI cricket.

    he is excellent in odi. in tests he was averaging 70 odd despite a test in South Africa. similar to kulasekara who averages 90+ vs ROW and under 25 vs Pakistan

    Nope. Thisara has got only one 5 wicket haul against India. His stats are - 14 ODIs against India and 21 wickets with 1 5fer (5 for 28 in sri lanka, 2010). Overall Econ 5.78 and Avg 25.66.

    Against Pakistan 9 ODIs 17 wickets Econ 4.74 Avg 22.11

    FYI, that was a depleted Indian team, even Kohli was dropped around that time from the team. Thisara was helped by Dharamasena too.
    The Aussie team was even weaker than the current team though that was better 5fer.

    Perera is yet another potential beast vs Pakistan. will have the odd off game but will mostly go ''kulasekara'' on Pakistan

    A big IPL contract coming his way..nothing sepcial though. Pakistan have a habit of picking up lullos and making them giants.
