Kusal Mendis & Udara Jayasundara against Boult & Southee? ha ha lol........
Ohh dear!!! this is a really poor article. The only acceptable thing in this article is that choosing 3 spinners for this series. I know the answer for selecting inexperienced VANDERSAY. OUR SELECTORS WANT ANOTHER 200 FROM MACALUM OR KANE WILLIOMSON. So they were succeed in last time bringing KAUSHAL for that. NOW THEY LOOK FOR A LEG SPINNER. Also this guy did not watch previous matches that thirimanne played for SL. It doesnt matter who bowls. southee, boult or even starc, thirimanne also edging edging continously got out in similar way so it is good give new guy THIS CHANCE TO HAVE FUN IN NEW ZEALAND. THIRIMANNE AND KAUSHAL SILVA DID THAT in previous occasion.
This will explain why Arjuna has been having shots at everyone including Sanga and Mahela over the years but never at his beloved brother!
Not sure if I am being insensitive but folks in Chennai need to wake up and get on with cricket. What is the point of this meaningless attitude towards a cricket match. Surely game must go on..
Great to read the story of a real servant of SLC compared to the theives that arrived with the money. I would love to know the behind the scenes of the lead up to us being granted test status. The vague story I have is the Windies opposed but Aus supported.
Lara and Kholi were a surprise as I assumed Gayle and Seewag would have the fastest.
Same old thieves, same old story, same old outcomes! Talk about being suckers for punnishment.
I would question the selection of 3 spinners for early NZ conditions as well but we also need to guard against finding fault with the selectors every time. They fisrt went with experince batters of Tharanga and Mubarak but that went no where. At the same time Thiri and Kaushal failed miserably making an already tricky situation even worse. Now they have gone with youth and we are knocking the selectors again.
Agreed there cannot be a worse nightmare for young top order batter than early NZ conditions against Bolt and co but you have to start somewhere. I agree they should have gone for youth in the home series but they didnt and now they have no choice...unless they keep going with Thiri and Kaushal and we would be blasting them again.
Not sure why India doesnt want to play in the UAE? Surely that is where you play Pakistan at home. Wonder if this is payback for not towing the BCCI line during the power/money grab by the BCCI.
