I completely agree with Stormy. Compared to previous squads this is far better with the only major question mark being three spinners. Quite excited for the upcoming tour, not necessarily because we can win but to see new talent on display. Also now that silva and thiri are gone hopefully we bat at a much better rate, perhaps it might be a positive influence on karunaratne and push him to make some good scores.
If Arjuna wants to render his services he should disassociate himself from his thieving brother. He should come clean now by removing himself from the group. It will go a long way of proving that he is only interested in good for SLC not the perks which comes with it. You can be loyal to your brother but knowing he is a thief and still supporting him is something unforgivable.
I believe Australia opposed. I remember reading a story that a delegation from Australia went into public toilets on one ground pencilled in as test venue (CCC if my memory serves me right), and reported it's not upto ICC standards.
Not sure West Indies opposed or not.
I feel that one of the reasons that Arjuna is backing his brother is, to make sure that Kumar and Mahela will NOT get involved with SLC. If they do, they will overshadow Arjuna. I think Arjuna does not like that.
SLC needs Cricket-loving new faces at the top. But the problem is, can honest people win the elections?
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.
