This fool is not suitable for this position. pl. get out without ruining srilankan cricket.
Above 8 batters include mixer of power hitters as well as accumulators will serve very well for SL cricket in my opinion
100% Agree with R.Peterson. I also looking forward for the same 7 batters in the ODI team.
But the only problem I can see is Dilshan is aging and cannot see him playing the next world cup in 4 years time. Dilshan does not look out of sort and he is still playing well although not extraordinary like 3-4 years ago.
But for me I like Dilshan retiring soon and groom Vithanage to open with Kusal. Vithanage also a good player but does not use his brain and plying reckless shots. I hope he also does not become another Kapugedara in his early years and come back after wasting 4-5 years to the team.
So I hope SL play this batting team in 3-4 months time in ODI team.
In addition to that Dananjaya De Silva proved he also can be a good ODI player with cold sholders and look like he is a matured batsman who does not throw his wicket away easily. So we can give him also reserved batting position in ODI squad to build up for next WC
This is a clear indication that Sri lankan fans are different compared to the fans from other sub continental countries
Malinga knows the conditions better than any other. If he is fit enough to play, he should be the captain. He has a vision..
IS that commedy selection board led by a joker cum fool Kapila Wijegonawardena still experimenting T20 team which was led by another foolish Free Bull Malinga along with world Famous inconsistant opener Kusal Janith, impatient Grand Father Dilshan and Useless non performer Tissara Perera. Or else are these people involved in fixing the matches. what a shame is this the way test playing country select a team and some players play the game with responsibility. now it is nearing the end of srilankan cricket. very good this what we can expected form a bunch of Muffets who are prepared to write the deth certificate for the srilankan cricket. in the name of srilankan cricket we appeal to all the above named authorities and cricketers to get out of srilankan cricket without ruining srilankan cricket any further.
Yes, There is a vacancy at #6 batting position of SL ODI side. So definitely Kapugedera can fill that vacant position.
These are the 07 batsmen I look forward to;
I think youngsters won both the games. But Malinga was the looser. One main reason behind these two defeats is Malinga's poor bowling. He has the worst bowling figures in both T20s when comparing with other young bowlers.
In both T20s young bowlers had set up it nicely towards SL. But especially Malinga's poor bowling made it completely upside down.
I dont think this decision came only from marvan but these selectors have taken decision to give youngsters opportunity. but why they dont give our coaching stuff to a new guy?? this is the right time but they have answers always like FORMER SELECTION PREDISENT SANATH. Now they have this answer: "NOW WE ALL ARE IN A TRANSITION PERIOD NO. SO IT WILL TAKE SOMETIME". So thats how they answer infront of media and the fans. so MARVAN'S NEXT AIM IS TO LOST INDIA SERIES AS 3-0. ALL THE BEST.
