Surprised to see Mahela at the top of this list but that's exactly the point the write is raising. You wouldnt have picked him but he is seriously effective and shows that one doesnt just need power hitting alone.
I didnt know about this till recenty. Hashan was also a keeper at one stage - like Dilshan a talentd cricketer.
Enjoyed this read.
What's with the two vice captains? I like the thought that we dont have to follow the world, being different is what brought us success but would like to workout the 2 vice captains theory.
Good question and intersting views. My call is yes based on the fact I dont think we are batting him in the right spot. I hear the views that how mnay more chances does he deserve and I would say this is the last chance. He really must deliver or the door must close.
The horrible thing is we want him to be the big hitter which see's him comming at the last few overs and having ago which of means high risk. Some including me have suggested he should up the order - could be a possible option but eitehr way he must deliver now.
Wow! that is serious skills. Its one thing to be able to do this with any accuracy but to be able to do it at competitive level is just insane. Hopeing to see another freak talent from SL at the highest level.
Interesing the majority is for Sachithra and Randiv ahead of Mendis. I would go for Herath and someone else! Not sure who but not sure about Mendis/Sachithra/Randiv. All experienced which could be important. If I were to pick one Mendis I reckon.
AAS silva has been very economical and consistent spinner in the domestic games, yet he is getting very limited opportunities to show his true colors at the top level.
In the just concluded provincial tournament, he played only one match in which he bowled just 3 overs and took 2 wickets for 20 runs.
It seems that some hidden agenda is in operation to block the upcoming players and secure the places of favourites of selectors in the national team.
I think it's a good move by SLC by playing under lights..we should encourage them to have more of this has it will be costly but it is worthy...I'm truely disappointed that they didn't telecast this matches on the tv though
