The Sri Lanka cricket team are one of the more formidable teams in the tournament.
Their coach is ex Sri Lankan player Marvan Atapattu and are ranked 4th in the ODI

The team is captained by Angelo Matthews and kep players include Mahela Jayawardane,
kumar Sangakkara and Lasith Malinga.Feb 12, 2015
