Non of the Asian teams deserve to be there in final. Most deserving teams are made to go for final. But Feeling sad for south Africa. They played really well. Looking forward to watch a really good final and wishing both the teams good luck!!
For your information it was on the players request that they had hired a local coach.. more accurately the senior players request.. stop trying to blame SLC just because we failed to perform upto mark this world cup.
@MDKJulius Caesar Interesting analysis. Your analysis and the way you present reminds me of another Tharanga fan user/ (users?) of this web site. Interesting how all of you guys think alike and post alike. Quite fascinating indeed.
Anyway, I don't think SJ or Marvan wanted to protect their record by breaking another pair. Until now, they wouldn't have known these statistics and wouldn't have analyzed it that way to build conspiracy theories like you guy/guys. Tharanga lost his place coz he failed with bat later in 2011 and 2012 and Mahela had to promote himself up in the order and open with Dilly. I think you should rather analyze Tharanga's performances after 2011 world cup to 2012 CB series until he was demoted to middle order. What is his avareage in that period? Can you tell me please. You can use any user account you like mate, no rush. Just tell me the facts. I know you like analyzing a lot as different perople but from the same view.
Not Kapu, I will bring Mahroof to open and he is an allrounder.
Another whom many think has been given a lot of chances is Chamara Silva who is scoring a lot in Domestic.
Atapattu was only a technical slow scoring bat. Even his captaincy was mediocre. What experience does he have in Coaching other than being connected to Nishantha? In this modern era of openers scoring fast, where does he stand?He is only interested in money and was instrumental in dobbing Marsh and getting him sacked and was only appointed by a section o executive committee of SLC.
After the CWC 2015, SL should first target Asia cup & T20WC 2016. Then we can target next stages. So I believe following ODI team can emerge strongly in the Asia cup 2016.
02) TM Dilshan
04) Chandimal (wk)
05) Mathews (C)
However, all depends on how these players establish themselves in the team during the upcoming year. Especially the competition is tight at #6,7 & 8 positions. So hope these players will perform well during next few months & get to their peak level next year for the Asia cup.
I think jokers became chokers of SL cricket to end the wc hopes with a history making huge defeat , registering a technical-knockout in WC-QF.
Good insight to the current state of affairs. The question is how long this sad state of gloom would continue.?
PK it's time to gather some stones. Go and through them at your so called great players houses! That's what you are best known for.
We just lost a match
