About time the likes of this legendary cricketer does something to help people at large. This is the first time I note a cricketer of the most recent past do some good for nothing. It is I hope not to advertise cement or material items.

#5 lol!! I do admit we are not doing well in the shorter format at the minute. I am in the believe we should have done much better in the one dayers against Aussie's. But T20, didn't we beat India in the last T20 world cup with all your star players?

As long as the money isn't going into the pockets of the officials AND better performances are rewarded with bonuses, I think it's a good move.

I think two allrounders is more than enough. Shanaka, Siriwardena/Pathirana would be my picks. And maybe Kulasaekera, but I don't think he will be picked anytime soon.

As for the others: Thisara still hasn't become the true allrounders he could have been. I hope he goes away and works on his bowling (which is more important) and adds a lofted shot. With that, he could be a decent bowler who can hit a few boundaries.
Prasanna can't bat and is inconsistent when bowling- hope they don't take him to South Africa. He seems to be riding on the 90 and 50 he made against Ireland and England respectively.

Maharoof was a failure in England- his bowling was poor and his batting was limp at best.

Jeevan, I haven't seen recently but he's still probably better than Prasanna.

Thilan Thushara and Dilhara Lokuhettige are 35 and 36. I'd rather not have senior citizens in my team- as they're fast bowlers, they will most likely break down in their first few matches.

We've become obsessed with batting depth because England have been successful. We should rather go back to our own style of play rather than try to copy England, because we don't have the allrounders who can bat down to 10 or 11. 4 proper bowlers, 2 allrounders who be more than enough. And we can bring in a batsmen if the conditions are helpful to bowlers.

Well the Sri Lankan team needs consistent all rounders not all rounders who aren't consistent like thisara so they should include players like Shanaka and so.
Inaddition to that, a player who can support Kapugedera in the middle overs with hard hitting like Vithanage would be right.

Looking around the front raw, Rangana Herth must be thinking "what the F$#@ did you all do to sit in the front raw".

Chameera. And Asitha Fernando bowled a few 140+ balls during the Under 19 WC, and I'd say he can still work on keeping his pace above 140.

When Chandi & Angie unites around the 20-30th overs its blocking & boundry here and there.

Whoever the anonymous, If you don't accalerate the Lambo, the car will be a waste. Mathews is just like that. I do not remember when he scored a 50+ score with 100+ SR. After WC 2015, He has only 2 50+ scores with 100+ SR.
