I agree with SPCG to a certain point. I think Malinga should play until the t20 WC next year and then retire..

We need a strong administration and selectors are given a set time to to reign (e.g. next world cup 2019), otherwise i suspect we will panic after a few losses and revert back to temp solutions..

Mehema blog ekak liwwata samawenna but What I tried to tell from this blog is that users cannot humiliate players who are representing national team continuously for their individual benefit. They are representing the national squad because selectors see they are fine enough to represent at national level.

Other thing is that this site should not be used to express individual opinion and interest among the public all the time and use it for private gain by some people.

Never mind seeing one or two posts regarding expressing their opinions that is what this site are all about. But this seems to be gone beyond the acceptable limit as it seems.

Hate the colours in the last two photos. Looks like they've got heads full of grey hair :/

Oh... this why Sanath & Marvan eliminate Tharanga from opening spot since 2013.!

If Tharanga was allowed to play those 60+ Odis including the 2015 WC, Certainly Dilly -Tharanga would have easily scored that 350 runs difference to improve their ranking certainly beyond Sanath -Marvan pair's 7th ranking spot, and would have probably passed 6) David Boon and Geoff Marsh-3,523 runs 5) Gilchrist and Mark Waugh-3,853runs 4) Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar-3,919 runs to improve their ranking to 4th spot and maybe even beyond..... All they needed was 967 runs from 60+ innings! How unfortunate SL is :((

It would have been a piece of cake for Dilshan & Tharanga (they have scored 800 runs from just 9 innings in 2011 WC & Totaled 3,000+ runs from just 67 innings!

7) Marvan & SJ pair had scored 3,382 runs @ 43.92 AV from 79 ings

8) Tharanga-Dilly pair had scored 3,052 runs @ 46.24 Av from 67 ings

PK, let's not forget India's WC campaign in 2007.... We have all experienced setbacks, but its all about how you come out of it. Also, our captain is so great even a great nation like India wants him to play in their premier league :) Good luck to your team!

Unfortunately, SL missed the chance of having the services of such a good world-class opening pair (Dilly & Tharanga combination) in 2015 WC. They would have certainly improved their Ever-BEST Opening Pair Record Established in WC History (in 2011) by scoring 800 runs with TWO Double-hundred PARTNERSHIPS @ an Astonishing Average of 100.00..!

I have had enough of Malinga. He can't field. His Batting is a complete joke. He bowls but can't take wickets. When he does it's no-ball. Drop him!. SLC can save big bucks and give a newcomer a chance. "Malinga" is like a brand name, Brand names do not work in cricket. We need players who can produce real results, not just the "hype".

But, if you are obsessed with him, make him the captain. That is the only way to make him play for SL with passion. I feel that his only aim is to play T20 tournaments around the world. By giving him a contract, SLC is playing his game. Maybe people who support him are getting a "cut".
