Amila Saman That is what I think you had done wrong. I'm not always at your tail. But I don't think it is a good idea as you said posting things based on what other say. If you have to say something about a player you must first see him. I can remember you always put blame on selectors for selecting players like Herath and Kulasekara and not selecting players like Binura and Vandersay who you even haven't seen and based on what other say.
But I agree you are a very enthusiastic cricket follower with lot of hard to find videos uploaded in the IC for people to see. Thanks very much for these videos.
Finally I also agree that Vadersay is better than Seekuge it seems.
We should look for fast bowlers like Dusmantha Chameera who can deliver at a clip of 145+ consistently or fast bowlers who can bowl at 135+ with yorkers, surprised bouncers and not the ones who will bowl at 120-125 without any variations every time
Come on man Statguru.... I am just posting things based on what others say. I don't think selectors took my word to select them... They see who are the people out there and whom to try out. There are voids in the team for different roles likes of left arm seamer, right arm leggie etc. and we need to find the guys to fill that void and pointing out who are the people that can fit to the slot. Anyway why are you always on my tail?
To add few things, Jeff is somewhat ok for me. At least better than Sekku Like to see him getting some turn. Got some variations. Yes agree with Dananajaya. He may be better with ODIs or may be in tests but not in T20.
One last thing I am posing things like every other... never shouted at anything.
Amila Saman : Kapugedara and Milinda impressed a lot. I'm a fan who always shouted at Kapugedara in the past if you remember in IC because I know his ability and potential. He should be considered in ODI's as well
Amila Saman I saw you have said that we can look for Dasun Shanaka in last week. But believe me I saw few months back in a single innings where he even could not get bat to bowl and look ordinary. I honestly was surprised he was playing for SSC (One of the biggest club in SL if not the biggest) at number 5 position on that day. But hopefully he may have the potential and we will wait and see if he get the chance in next match
Amila Saman I hope you show the potential of Binura Fernando in today match where you always in the past comment he should be in the Sri Lankan squad.
Looks like very much an average bowler without any treat for the batsman by bowling at 120-125 kmph pace. Even Kulasekara and Mathews can bowl at a much pace than him.
Jiffrey Vandersay is better than Binura it seems where he has some variations other than the leg break. But he also have to lot to improve to be an international material. Because he bowl most of the deliveries are short pitch and if the batsman is good enough he should have gone for more than 25.
Dananjaya Silva seems good but not for T20. Good for ODI and Test where we can see he is a matured batsman who is not going to throw his wicket away from the small innings I saw him. But he lacks power hitting which need in T20. Impressed with his fielding though. Remember he can bowl spin bowling as well so he can be a handy player for especially for ODI's
Lot of people here shouted in the past that Binura Fernando should be in the test, ODI and T20 squad of Sri Lanka. Finally everyone saw his potential. Did anyone impressed with him. I never shouted in the past that he should be in the team because I knew he is an average bowler.
For me bowling at 120-125kmph pace is not good and we show how he treated by Pakistan batsman. Even Kulasekara and Mattews seem can bowl at a more pace than him.
-Dhanajaya de Silva looks like a very good one day player to replace Dilshan's position. He should include into the squad for next odi series.
- Kapugedera is a better player now than few years ago. He is suitable for no.7 position for the odi team.
-Milinda to me is the Micheal Beven or Mike Hussy for Srilanka.
-Vandersay looks like a very good bowler specially for Test & odi format.
-Binura needs to improve his pace. He didn't bowl 130+ ball. With the height & strong shoulders he has definitely he can improve his pace at least 135+. Coaches should work with him.Also he has a very slow run up. That is why he can't produce good pace.It is a big waste if a giant like him can't bowl 140+.
-Kithruwan we need to give him more chances. He is a match winner. We have given more than 100 chances to Chandimal & Thirimanne & 50 chances to Kusal.
First of all, we should experiment a new captain for T20s. It will be all over for Sri Lanka, if we went to T20WC with this kind of a poor performing captain.
Today Malinga has the worst bowling figures of the day. (Economy: 11.50)
milinda, chamara & binura...
Bring in Chandika Haturasinghe and Ruwan Kalpage. Under them Bangladesh have been very dominant and have completely changed the way people think of their. They whitewashed a team- Pakistan- , who we couldn't beat in ODI's. They almost whitewashed two powerhouses- India and South africa- Teams we get steamrolled by. This is under Chandika and Ruwan's leadership. Time to sack Marvan and bring these two.
