@Late cut i didn't watch the last match to listen to the commentry.It must have been a poor work by Chandi.
Are there only 2 players in the team?(anji & chandi)/(though I still beleve Chandi would be a better cap than Anji.) Why cant we look beyond them as SA did with smith.
When Mike Hesson sacked Taylor (who was a simillar captain to anji with a negative attitude)Many critisised him,But what happend then on Baz took over that struggling NZ team and made them world beaters.
KW Boult Southee who were 22 23 24 by then all groomed well under him to be the best in business
We need a inspirational captain like that not a one who puts his hands in the pockets and ask batsman "get out if you can" who asks oppositions "lose if you can" rather than win "if you can"
Why dont you talk to the selectors & step down then.Not only one but also all other 10 probabley would be a better captain if they are given a chance
The bad move was not the direction about the last ball! Not advicing the fielders to be eager to stop the 3 given on the 5th ball.
Please dont screw Chandimals head by talking about captaincy!... Let him bat and learn and take over when the time is right.... Similar to what happened with Mahela and Sanga.... By burdening the Captaincy Chandimal may endup loosing his spot in the team. History repeats!
No point in talking about Captaincy with the pathetic fielding!. As some one said we cannot go for a gun fight with a butter knife!
No one on the forums? Are all at cardiology units after 1st ODI?....
Once again it was the fielding that became the biggest liability.
I would like to see comments from those who are claiming for AMs head about the ENG SL 1st ODI.... Was it the captaincy on field ?.... in my opinion it was the poor fielding and it has been the case for the last 2 years. If I have some time i will go through the Cricinfo comments and count the number of dropped catches........ Not only the catches oposition running after hitting directly to fielders is a big problem coz they know that our guys cant throw the stumps.
@Jeewantha. Captain is only part of the selection committee on tour. From what i can remember Dimuth was one of the batsmen who showed some technical capabilities during the test series prior to the wc in NZ conditions. Thisara has some talent otherwise why would it be that he is the only one who ends up getting IPL offers continously from SL. It is case bad coaching and management not being able harness his talent.
@Jeewantha, because there is no one else for the job! We saw the results of sub-captain loosing it from 86/6...... It is only the hard-core racisists and people v.low cricketing wisdom that want him out of the job. I am sure he will not stay in the job for 1 day more than what is required for SL Cricket. Next time when you watch a game listen to some commentry so you can improve your cricketing wisdom......
