As usual THIRIMANNE. missed another hundred by 97.. why not SLC make him Sri Lanka team captain or make president of SLC ,so that he can play forever after all his failure for another decade. My kind request to JOKER sanath and foolish SLC to appoint THIRIMANNE as their new captain and make LAKMAL as vice captain ,so that SLC can see their favorite players spoiling the whole match again n again
Lol, Thirimanne failed once again. At least the new guys got runs (Sandun, Asalanka and Roshen Silva) as well as KJP. With our injury hit team, doing well in this match could mean selection for the Zimbabwe tour.
Annoyingly the cricinfo scorecard hasn't updated at all so does anyone know the bowling line up? Shanaka and Sandakan are definitely there, but who else? Vandersay? Aponso? Asitha? Lahiru Kumara?
WRONG HEADLINE CALLING THIRI MISFIRING ..LOL... Tell us when did he last fired to call him misfiring ... I think the heading should be "BELOW CLUB LEVEL THIRIMANNE AGAIN DESTROYING SL A ,AFTER NATIONAL TEAM FOR YEARS" OR
Please make the headline as " DUCKMANNE AT IT AGAIN ,RUINING CHANCES AS USUAL...
People like SIRIWARDENA ARE DROPPED FOR NOTHING OF HIS FAULT BUT FAILURES LIKE DUCKMANNE ARE PRESEVERED .DOES NT MATTER HOW MANY MORE CHANCES THIS DUCKMANNE IS GIVEN FOR SURE HE WILL FAIL UTTERLY AND WILL GIVE EXCUSES AS USUAK FIR HIS FAILURE
..we know once he said that he played well but all the shots he played went to fielder so that's why he did not score.. will anyone with proper thinking say something like that???? This shows that he will blame everything for his failures except his inability.. I won't be surprised if he blames the opposition BOWLERS for his dismissals in slips too
.HOPLESS SANATH WANTS " YES SIR PLAYERS like Thirimanne and lakmal even after failures at domestic level shows that it's all politics within SLC
Don't give him a chance ones again to sri lankan squad. There are more players who can bat better than this f*****.
This is a challenge for the newcomers because they dont have much international experience.
Zimbabwe are low ranked team but they have experienced & talented players.
Most of senior players have been injured. Selectors might try to bring Thirimanne into the national squad by giving every available opportunities like this.
Should have given a go to Rajitha & Binura with all top seamers injured you cant debut 2 u19 seamers in against SA
Please drop THRIMANNE from ALL LEVELS OF CRICKET... EVEN SCHOOL BOYS PLAY BETTER CRICKET THAN HIM, it doesn't matter how much you try to make a frog into a lion ,IT SIMPLY WONT HAPPEN... THIRIMANNE HAS DESTROYED OR RUINED TOO MANYCHANCES OF THE OTHER SESERVING PLAYERS, WHO ON EARTH WILL THEY HIM MORE CHANCES EXCEPT THE FOOLISH MODA SANATH.
Zimbabwe tour starts on 25th october. So my concerns are;
1.Whether Chandimal,Mathews De Silva & K.Perera & Pradeep Fernando are fit enough by that time. These are key players in our test ranks at the moment.
2.Forget that it is Zimbabwe. Do we have enough replaceable players for above options?
Anyhow, I would like suggest the below mentioned squad for the upcoming test series Vs Zim in case of the absence of the injured players.
2.Kaushal(Selection panel will definitely go back to these options since they believe that Dimuth has come back into the form with current performance with WI A & Kaushal may have secured his place with the century Vs Australia in final test match in SSC.)
3.Niroshan Dickwella/Sandun Weerakkody (WK)
@Mayan He scored a 40 not a fifty in that T20 WC semi final. And that was two years ago, should we recall Aravinda because he was man of the match in the WC final in 96?
I agree he doesn't deserve to be forgotten but his form does NOT merit selection into the A team squad, let alone being made captain. Let him score heavily for a season or two in domestic cricket before selecting him again.
