England have pride and top position to protect:
Jayawardena must tell his mates to be ruthless
Sri Lanka skipper Mahela Jayawardena must tell
his mates to be ruthless and go hard at the Englishmen when they
meet in the Second Test starting at the picturesque P.Sara Stadium
today. The Lankans mauled the lions inside four days and by 75 runs
in the First Test in Galle. Now that they have the Englishmen
gasping and on the ropes, they must deliver the knockout punch, that
will also knock them down from the number one ranking in world
cricket. The five-day Test which starts today will also be played on
Friday which is an important day for both Buddhists and Christians.
Friday is a Poya Day and Good Friday.
