cricket team of Sri Lanka

Sri Lankan cricket team is a strong cricket team who can put up a fight to win 2015 cricket World Cup. The strength of Sri Lankan cricket team is their batting which is full of batsmen like Tilakratne Dilshan, Kumara Sangakkara and Mahela Jayewardene who are considered to be some of the greatest batsmen of the cricket history. Luckily, even the new players at Sri Lankan side have been exceptionally great at international formats. One of the best thing about Sri Lankan cricket team is their consistent performance. No matter what, the team has always been able to perform at its best without having to deal with fitness issues. Considering 2015 ICC world cup, Sri Lankan is a very strong contender and if it plays against India, it will one of those rivalry matches that you see almost throughout the year in different series. 

In the batting line up for Sri Lankan cricket team, players like Sangakkara, Dilshan, Thirimanne, Tharanga and Mathews are very dangerous batsmen. As for the bowling side, a continuous threat for any side is Malinga who never fails to amaze with his excellent bowling attacks. For him, it is quite easy to freak out the batsmen and get rid of the team as soon as possible. Other dangerous bowlers are Mendis, Perera and Herath. 

Sri Lanka previously has reached the World Cup final of 2007 cricket World Cup and winning the 1996 World Cup behind them. And as the team is a great blend of new and old players, it seems like Sri Lankan team could be one of the distinguishing teams of 2015 ICC World Cup
