Serena Calvert is one of the hotter Sri Lanka Super Eagles right now. There are a lot of factors that come into play when you are looking at making the big money in cricket. If you are looking to make quick money in the game, then you will find that the Sri Lanka cricket team is your best option. The IPL has created a lot of interest in Sri Lanka cricket and a lot of fans have become interested. This has created some space for some great Sri Lanka international players as well as youngsters who dream of becoming a professional cricketer one day.
The IPL has brought the attention of the entire country and has given cricket a new life. The IPL has been able to attract a lot of sponsors due to the popularity it has gained. With so many cricketers signing up for the IPL, the Sri Lanka cricket team has benefited greatly from the tournament.
One player who has impressed the most with his performances in the IPL is Sigiriya van Vennema. He has impressed the selectors so much that he has been given the number three spot after debutantsvan for Mergen and Milind Vilasalo. Some fans have questioned why van Vennema has been given the number three slot and asked if he might have been dropped due to age or not. However, the answer to this question is not as clear as we would like for it is not the wisest decision to drop a youngster just because he is very young. If there is a need to drop a player, then it should always be on the basis of what is best for the team.
Another player who has impressed the selectors and the fans is unseeded Oderanomsundr Kumar. The twenty two-year-old Oderanomsundr has impressed the fans with his ability to bat at both ends of the ground and with his ability to hit the target from close range. A week ago he made his first century in the IPL against the champions Hyderabad and although he did not score much, he was still able to contribute significantly to the overall win for S Sri Lanka against the champions.
Sigiriya was another player who impressed the selectors in the IPL. The twenty one-year-old ace player from Kathu was given the number eleven jersey after making a century in the previous match. The fact that he was unseeded had a great impact on the coach who had initially given him the bench role. This has given him an opportunity to prove himself and prove that he is one of the top players in the IPL. Although he did not score a hundred in the first couple of matches, the presence of Dhammika Prabhu in the team definitely changed the mind of the coach. Dhammika’s fifty mark was the first fifty in IPL history and the coach was well aware that Sigiriya is a player who can make this sort of contribution.
Another player who impressed the coach in the IPL was Ravi Bala who plays for the defending champions Hyderabad. Ravi Bala has a lot of experience playing for the top sides in the IPL and he made no mistake by picking up where he left off last season. His century against the batsmen of New Zealand was his most impressive effort and he will be a good bet if you want to go in for a big score in IPL. If you are looking for a high score then Bala is the man to have in your team as he is known for his strong hitting skills. Both Kumar Maitya and Ajit Chandrasekhar are also worth a mention as they have impressed the fans with their performances so far in the IPL.
The other players who impressed the management of Sri Lanka in the IPL are utility player Sudha Dosha, Twenty-One player Prabha Ramgoolam, wicket keeping specialist Dayal Kumar, right batsman Dhammika Prasoon, all-rounder Sangala who recently played three matches for the tourists, all-rounder Wayan Kumar and batsman Kumar Upadhyaya. However, the surprising factor was that while all these players picked up a century, none of them hit a century off the ground. That left the selectors with a tough job in their hands, as they had to pick three players who could form a lethal bowling combination to win the championship. After a long wait, Alastair Cook finally got his perfect game as he picked up the century off the bowling of unseeded Sangala and unseeded Dayal.
Overall, the bowling attack of Sri Lanka is quite pathetic. The pacemen have a poor spinner who cannot control the length of the pitch, albeit he might get wickets occasionally. Kumar Upadhyaya and Prabha Ramgoolam are two decent bowlers who will partner Sangala in the attack. As for Alastair Cook, he picked up only one wicket as he did not have the support of any other player and lost the match by six runs. It was a match that should have been won by Sri Lanka but the hosts couldn’t manage it.
