@cgi im not saying kusal should be out and munaweera should be in. i am saying he should be getting a fair chance and need to be next in line to replace tm dilshan. And you said he olayed 4t20 s have look at the matches i am sure u hve not. out of 4 games 2 were rained off the way u are judging a player is like scraching a lottery. sorry mate you have no idea about the game just like a player critisising journalist. after being the number one run getter in the slpl played 2 world cup games scored 14,17 and next tour against new zealand was not out on 4 when match stopped due to rain. the 17 he scored was a 7 over match against SA. what i am saying is after a player comes through the ranks they should be given confidence. good that kusal scored runs on his debut otherwise he wil be among players like angelo perera ,dilshan munaweera, and another ex: is ashan priyanjan he scored runs on his debut and his in the squad thats very good bit need to give young players more confidence too as the oldies those days did,t scrach lotteries to be in the side as they got fair chances. Thanks

All the foreign coaches who came to Sri Lanka boosted their reputation and name as a high profile coaches thanx to the Sri Lankan teams talent. So Sri lanka has become a coaches making machine isn't it?

@Stormy ~ you can't say like that sis, coz we don't know what Paul has done, may be has addressed a very small impediment to overcome the last hurdle. Watching the things from the pavilion we can't judge what exactly happened in the dressing room.

Personally I think in this context we shouldn't measure anybodies contribution, yet we have to give the due respect. Paul's contribution as a coach, Malinga's contribution as a captain, Chandimal's spirit as a team player, Angy's contribution as the ODI captain, All went well and we shouldn't measure it.

you can't just measure someone's talent from looking at just one video. Munaweera played 4 T20 international matches after this heroic, but he couldn't prove him self. When it comes to Kusal Perera, he scored 33 in his first T20 outing against mighty Australian bowling attack in their soil. He scored 64 in his 3rd appearance, he has played just 17 matches and now he holds the 5th in ICC T20 batsmen ranking. It's not fair to always blame selectors when a player is not selected. With the current formation of the team I don't think Munaweera has a place to fill.

I too think Malinga should've received the trophy with Chandimal (I though he would) because Chandi did half of the job as captain (first three matches) and Mali did the other half (the next three), but I don't think anyone would've remembered it at that euphoric moment.

If Mali did do it, it would've been a great demonstration of our team spirit and how they haven't forgotten what Chandi has done as the captain in all previous T20I matches and by opting himself out in the WC. I'm not saying that they don't appreciate him, but it would've been nice of him if he did that.

Yeah, Malinga did give credit to Chandimal for setting the foundation and said that he just had to build on it.

However, I don't think Chandi would mind it, to be honest, as at the end of the day, the Sri Lankan TEAM won. All's well that ends well...! :)

sorry ma bad... they played in the last warmup game.. that too arriving on the day before that warmup game started....

my point anyway was let's not look at anyone in black and white(black being 100% bad and white being 100% good). it's better to look at everyone as GREY!

Definitely! You can tell who knows cricket and who doesn't; he gave credit where it's due instead of just blaming Yuvraj for India's loss.

And the Indian fans, jeeez! Talk about OVERCONFIDENCE! Hope they learnt that overconfidence, like WI captain, Sammy's, doesn't work...

I beleive dilshan munaweera is one of the hardest hitters and one of talented cricketer in our country he earned his place in the last t20 world cup, selectors should look at him positively and give him a fair chance as their giving kusal perera, otherwise its such a unfair thing what happen to him after playing so well in the slpl and being the highest run getter with the maximum sixes

Have a look at this video and messure his talent and skill and what a waste the selectors doing to him and for the country

Uppercut they played in a warm up game but you say they played Test series without playing any? Are you trying to lie to us or you really did not know and just believed what Sri Lankan media is saying?
