Kumar Sangakkara: Such has been the dependence on captain Sangakkara's batting abilities for Sri Lanka's chances in the world cup that fans are dreading the prospect of Sanga having one off-day and what happens! While the hundred against New Zealand was a special one, his fifty against Australia in the rain-abandoned match was easily the best inning thus far.
Angelo Mathews: remember the dream inning Mathews played in Melbourne a few months back to help Sri Lanka to one of the most improbable wins in ODI cricket. Now, where has that grit and determination disappeared Mr. Mathews? He has been in woeful batting form and his bowling struggles to get just above mediocrity.
