I think too much stock is being put on Hathu knowing this or that. SL team might know everything, but will they be able to actually get the job done? In theory if we win 2 of the 3 games against them, we should be able to keep the cup (provided ZIM aren't the other team in the final).

Thats a decent lineup, but has serious downsides as follows:

1) tuk tuk openers...our average PP score will be 30-1 with those two opening. Both batters put a price on their wicket and tend to score big so that offsets some of the damage. But with those openers, 300 is the highest total we can post/chase.

2) lower order impotence. Musa is a top order accumaltor, only Sabbir, shak, and Mushy can accelerate at the death. Mash is basically a slogger, and Miraz lacks the power game. Rony can tonk some but is not a reliable batter.

3) bowling looks pretty strong. Really want to see Rony with the new ball. Can he really swing it?
