SLPL was a total failure. SLC cant organise a good tournament. You need competent people to be able to pull off a good league.
Pradeep has a larger skill set (can bowl bouncer pretty well, can swing and seam it pretty well and is probably our second fastest pacer after Chameera). Chameera has that extra pace and blows short of length stuff really well but he doesn't seam or swing it as well as he could. At the moment I'd say Pradeep.
Well, hopefully. But more importantly I think it will help them deal with pressure situations which is their biggest problem.
Drop Kapugedera & Siriwardena (you don't need a spinning all rounder, Dhananjaya & Danushka & Asalanka are there).Instead give a try to another medium pacer, what about Anuk F'do who can bat too & played recently in Zim. Why he is not considered by anyone? Is there another promising bowler who did well there. Other one is Binura who could generate bounce in SA conditions.
assuming this is not an official squad, it looks decent. Though with the tracks in Zimbabwe I would take another hit the deck bowler who generate bounce on any surface, like Binura. The batting line up looks decent, though I would personally drop one of Kapu or Siri for a bowler.
I don't think he has a cricinfo profile. Unless I got the spelling wrong: is it definitely spelled Kasun Kaldera? Was he the one bowling when they showed the net bowlers during the second (or first, I can't remember) T20 against Australia?
Not sure about him, seeing as I'm not sure how fast he is bowling or if he taken a lot of wickets. I'd say right now there a few young bowlers ahead of him but if he bowls well and takes wickets I don't see why not.
Looks ok except for kapugedara
Right now Chandimal, though if Mathews was in form I would say Mathews. Chandimal was SL's highest test scorer last year and I think he is our highest this year as well. Mathews' form has been pretty poor and he hasn't scored a entity since the last Pakistan test we played I think.
Again, Kusal Mendis and Dhananjaya have the potential to be really good, but I'll wait till they are a bit more experienced before commenting.
@Nick White Where's your evidence of there being no tests? Recent news states that there may be both a 2 test series and the truth-series.
We won 3-0 against Australia, so better to keep winning combination. Not good to drop dimuth. He will come back strong. Don't be jealous guys. Don't try to bring your players by criticising others.
