Tillakratne questions shot selection of Lankan batsmen
Pallekele: Sri Lanka batting coach Hashan Tillakratane chided his batsmen for their cross-batted shots against the Indian spinner as the hosts stare at a massive defeat in the third Test. The coach expressed his displeasure with how his team folded up in the first innings for a paltry 135 in reply to India s huge 487. Playing spin, even from Zimbabwe series we couldn t cope up with. Second innings of that match and second innings of the SSC Test, the boys played really well. But there was no continuity, Tillakaratne said.
