Sri Lanka Captaincy A Guessing Game Ahead Of Semi

Two things are certain in Thursday night's semi-final. The West Indies players will have the Mirpur crowd eating out of their hands; a jig, happy or otherwise, is likely. And a formula surpassed only by the theory of relativity in complexity will be required to work out who Sri Lanka's captain is, and what percentage of the captain's customary tasks he has carried out that day.

 

 

Twenty-four hours before the toss, the team's official line was that they still did not know who would lead. As long as Mahela Jayawardene is allowed to marshal the team on the field, Sri Lanka fans may not mind if a rag doll was sent to conduct the toss. At least an inanimate object would not do any worse at remembering the playing XI than Lasith Malinga, bless him.
