Mathews’ form, a huge relief for Sri Lanka



article_image

Amidst the rubbles of Sri Lanka’s heavy 141-run defeat in Mohali on Wednesday, former captain Angelo Mathews stood tall with his second hundred on the tour. Sri Lanka desperately need their leading batsman to fire and on this tour, he has come up with some remarkable efforts.

In the second ODI in Mohali, after being set an improbable target of 393, he was fighting a lone battle and remained unbeaten on 111. It was his first ODI hundred in three years.

Mathews had a prolific 2014. It was a remarkable year for Sri Lanka as well with a maiden Test series win in England. The captain made centuries in both Tests at Lord’s and Headingley as Sri Lanka secured a tensed 1-0 series win. Mathews was named Player of the Series.

That year, he scored over 1,300 runs in Tests, the second most in the world, only behind Kumar Sangakkara. His average in 2014 was a stunning 87. His figures were awesome in ODIs as well with an average of 67. His 1,244 runs were just behind Sangakkara (1,256). Since 2014, Sri Lanka have never had world’s two highest run-getters in both forms of the game.
