It was a decision, a ploy, to keep our key strike bowlers away from the Australian game. We wanted to bring the players out for the finals with Australia. We did not want to give the Australians a free dress rehearsal. We are saving our armoury for the finals,de Mel obviously contradicted Jayawardene who said earlier that the duo had been rested to ensure that they didn't aggravate existing niggling injuries. I've admired Sri Lanka's cricket throughout the tournament. But if what de Mel says is right, I hope they don't even get to the final. I'm not necessarily saying so, since teams can have specific strategies. But you never assume you're going to get to a final, especially when you need to win a semi-final to get to the final.
