Sri Lanka selectors are considering using three slow bowlers against England in the World Cup quarterfinals _ a tactic initially devised for the group game against defending champion Australia.
Muttiah Muralitharan, Ajantha Mendis and leftarm spinner Rangana Herath could all pose a tough challenge for the English batsmen on a slow R. Premadasa Stadium wicket on Saturday.
Muralitharan hurt his hamstring while batting during a 153-run win over New Zealand but returned to bowl and took four wickets in the match last week. Sri Lanka is expecting the world's leading wicket taker to be available for the make-or-break match.
