I Knew Damith, but Did You?

by Q

Pakistan may have lost 4 of their last 5 ODIs to Sri Lanka but the fact is Damith, that Sri Lanka has never beaten Pakistan in a world cup game.


Be it an ODI World Cup, a World T20, or even a Champions Trophy, the Lankans have always gone down against the Pakistanis.

If any pattern is to be seen, this is the one Damith - when it matters, Sri Lanka just don't have it in them!

You mention Mendis' average, but what you miss is the all important stat that counts in T20 cricket - the economy rate.

Mendis has gone for 4.73 runs per over against Pakistan in ODIs, which is higher than his career ecomomy, and higher than his economy against any other nation.

He will be left scratching his head after he faces the wrath of the Pakistani blades, while Murali will hardly be of any help; we've been handling him for decades.

I have already told you about Dilshan's 3rd innings failures, so what he averages against Pakistan is irrelevant.

His form leading up to the match - also irrelevant. You call them pie chuckers, but after Dilshan's back in the pavilion, that is all he'll be doing. Eating pies!

Angelo Matthews who?

The top 4 may look rock solid but poor Mahela has hardly laid bat on ball, while the Silvas, Mubaraks, and whats their names in your line up are going to be fodder for the likes of Afridi, Ajmal, and Gul.

No chance in hell baby.

Malinga and Udana will be thwarted around, Matthews will be left wondering whether he should just remain outside the boundary, Jayasuriya will finally realize he's too old for the Pakistanis, King Sanga will face his first loss as captain, while the entire Sri Lankan fans will be left with the thought:

Why can't we beat Pakistan when it matters!?

Alas! Afridi should not have been allowed to bowl against minnows.
