8. Sri Lanka (Group stage)
The fallen giants of international cricket, it is almost tough to comprehend what has happened with Sri Lanka. It doesn’t seem like they have a spine strong enough to withstand the pressure of a tournament as big as this and maybe, at least for the next tournament, all we can expect is an upset here and there.
They do not have anything sorted, from their batting positions to bowling options. It is almost difficult to predict 7-8 players who will definitely be present in Australia for the tournament, such is the ambiguity. With such confusion and fear in the hearts, it seems highly unlikely for them to reach the final four.
They’re trying to persevere with some players like Shehan Jayasuriya and Avishka Fernando right now and only time will decide if that will be fruitful. Yet, one thing is certain, life is not going to get any easy in the coming days, in the lead up to the big tournament.
