Whenever Kumar and Mahela fail, neither can succeed all the time, Lanka crumbles. They aren't getting any younger and the Lankans haven't been able to find suitable young batsmen who can develop enough to replace them when they retire. Grim times ahead for the emerald islanders if they don't get it going on that front soon. Mathews and Chandimal have LONG ways to go before filling those shoes.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
