ICC World Cup 2019 | Mathews' Inconsistent Form Haunts Sri Lanka
Since the Champions Trophy in 2017, Mathews had made 798 runs in 22 matches at an average of 53.2 including a hundred and four half-centuries coming into the World Cup. No other Sri Lankan batsmen had an average above 50 in this time frame. Only two - Lahiru Thirimanne and Danushka Gunathilaka - averaged 40 or more. Mathews was clearly Sri Lanka's biggest hope in the batting department as they entered the World Cup as underdogs.
