Pathetic fielding and bowling. How many drop catches/ mis-fieldings/wides???
we should seriously consider about those highly paid coaches and the commitment of some of the players.
This was a bad win as exposing our weaknesses was somewhat prevented by the final result.
Anyway, we will get hammered in SA tour if we continue with this kind of playing....
pls give him a permanent position. all these new bowlers are not up to the mark
We beat West Indies due to heroics off Dhananjaya, Dickwella & Kusal Mendis bat. upul scored just 26 & 12 so far in the tri series. Is he the man fit to in the one day squad let alone the leader? Anyone?
Sanath and his team has lot to answer for? I know it's a thankless job being a selector but Sanath takes it to different level with his in explainable selection process.
Most of the boys won't understand him... Lost in translation....
Thanks for the video!! A good finish but it should not have been so close after scoring so many runs!!
I don't think Pathirana should be our main spinner.He is better suited as a 2nd spinner & allrounder @7.You may win with those allrounders against WI or ZIM but not against top sides.Should Play Vandy or Sandakan as the main spinner.We got Dhananjaya for support who is not too far behind Pathirana as a spinner.
Shanaka could be a better choice than Asela in SA.He is the better power hitter of the two and his swing could be more effective in SA perhaps even in Tests.
With one of Dickwella and Dhanushka opening trying other one @ 5 or 6 wouldn't be a bad idea as many of our middle order are right handed
My team for SA ODIs
6&7 2 of Shanaka Pathirana Asela & Milinda
Maxxa! This is superb. Get him to visit twice a year if he cannot commit to long term.
Dhananjaya de silva
Dhanushka Gunathilaka/Niroshan Dickwella
I think the first 7 players all deserve a place in the team, the others can be switched according to different situations. I think that its important we try a new seamer because i think we are lacking in the fast bowling department. Neither pradeep, Kulasekara or Lakmal are able to take 3 or 4 wickets per game so we need to look for someone to be our wicket taker. Vandersay deserves to play more, if not then Aponso should be used. I think Pathirana and Gunaratne are very reliable all rounders who can get the boundaries when they want to. Its time we stop using the useless Thisara Perera and his once in a blue moon good innings and find allrounders that can win a game rather than throw it away.
What is Kusals ODI stats after returning from his ban?
Im a huge fan of KJP but i believe in players being selected based on performance... Under that light, it would be impossible to ignore dickwella now.. Without a doubt he was the overall best batsman in this series, performing in every match... Id like to see danushka and dasun in the team as well..
