NEW DELHI,JUNE 13
We were pathetic, once again," Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews said after the loss to Pakistan and exit from Champions Trophy 2017. The words of Mathews summed up Sri Lanka’s day with an honest assessment of the proceedings and saved headline writers in Colombo from the ignominy of having to create a sharp, sensational headline for next day’s newspapers. Pathetic, in the captain’s own words will do just fine.

Ironically, it was the wicket of Mathews that started the slide for Sri Lanka early in the morning. They lost Kusal Mendis and Dinesh Chandimal in quick succession after a brisk start, but Mathews and Niroshan Dickwela consolidated well to take the team to 161/3 in 31 overs. Sarfraz Ahmed, perhaps sensing his team’s ineptness at chasing, gambled with bringing back his strike bowlers from both ends. Junaid Khan answered the captain’s call by bowling a probing 31st over, beating Dickwella three times in a row.Sri Lanka have struggled with injuries and suspension and came into this match with a batting line-up that was patched together using the spare parts in a warehouse. To compensate for the brittleness of the untested, unreliable spare parts that were just brought in, he had stacked up specialist batsmen till No 7 and Thisara Perera as an all-rounder at No 8.
But one got the feeling that this batting line-up will need the superglue of someone like Mendis or captain Mathews to stay at the crease and hold the innings together. When Mathews turned his bat awkwardly at a Mohammad Amir delivery, Sri Lankan fans feared the worst.
