Good move i feel.. but i think they shouldn't have reduced the salaries so much... just a small drop would be fine...
PLAYERS LIKE THIRIMANNE WERE OVER PAID FOR THEIR SLOW SELFISH RUNS AGAINST WEAK ATTACKS , NOW IT won't happen again .... Good job SLC... With this system players like lakmal will be always paid less for his poor performances and that's a good start SLC ... Well done... True class players will emerge through the proposed payment system...
Poor performers like THIRImanne won't represent Sri Lanka because of the current system.. well done SLC on this matter.
@Latecut, stand up man, true SLC should be brought to justice for whatever wrong they do. However it does not mean, equally a wrong set of individuals, players in this instance, getting unreasonably rewarded when the game suffers humiliation after humiliation. They are not bothered because they get the pay & a gang of them protecting each other, to the whims & fancies of a few agents for their own selfish cause. We heard recently the captain was insisting on inclusion of certain players in spite of their repeated failures and then it was suggested some could be due to school ties, now the real reason is out in the open.
Hope the parents wont have to regret the day he gets into a non-fixable state.
Forget about saving cricket please save the innocent road users by at least suspending his DL....... what state of affairs I don't blame the legal system it is the State/Police who should have demanded that his DL be suspended...... I wonder we can build a tracking system that can track these thugs dynamically so that we can avoid hot spots of danger!!!!
Performance targets for the Test seems to be ok. But for the ODI and T20s it may be detrimental to have targets without consideration of the scoring rate. And also scoring 100s and 5WI are so rare in t20s. These targets look like targets designed by a baseball player who has never watched a game of cricket!
Very poorly implemented. Just an excuse for SLC to save some money to be used for their trips overseas with families. The performance targets are way too steep and crisp. They should be bit more fuzzy and achievable.
Two great hundereds by Thirimanne but both innings missed by only 97 and 96 runs respectively... I wonder how HE managed to get into Sri Lanka national team.
what poor performance by the so called great Sri Lanka technician who can't even handle BOWLERS of lowest class... pure amateurs are just picky Ng up his wickets for fun.. I hope SLC doesn't give him anymore chances even in Sri Lanka A BECAUSE ITS a waste of a spot of player who can make the cut into the next level.another undeserved player is suranga lakmal he should dropped from all formats , what has he done to stay in the the team after having so many chances, he can be only good against WEAK opponents...
Further SLC has to drop CHANDIMAL from t20 s because he is not a slam bang t20 player but he is a must in tests and ODI s for stability of the Sri Lankan batting order...
Apart from it players who deserve to play all three formats are talented MILINDA SIRIWARDENA and dasun Shanaka.
Well, another flop for Thirimanne. Hope he gets finally dropped, the guy has been useless for a while now. I can only pray that the youngsters can bat well to stave off defeat against what appears to be a completely different Windies A team that lost the first 4 day match pretty easily.
LAHIRU THE TECHNICIAN THIRIMANNE NEVER FLOPS AS FAR AS SLC CONCERNED...
PLEASE CHANGE THE TITLE AND MAKE IT AS 'LAHIRU MISSED A HUNDRED BY 97 runs in first INNINGS and missed yet another HUNDRED by ONLY 96 RUNS...'
I really hope SLC don't give chances to NON PERFORMERS LIKE LAKMAL TOO. HE IS ANOTHER WASTE IF SPACE FOR SLC.
