I am confused, non inclusion of Dilshan Munaweera , Dhanuska Gunatilake or Shehan Jaysuriya is baffling. Shehan had a good season. Not sure the thinking behind Dilruwans inclusion. Ramith Rambukwellas inclusion... It's not worth the space for me. Malintha Puspakumara is still left out?

I completely agree how on earth they could ignore Dhanuska Gunatilake, Shehan Jaysuriya or Dilshan Munaweera? Is Ramith going to be the spinner who is going to fix the problem? Dilruwan and Jeevan?
I am confused!!

Not sure about Dilruwan, Rambukwella, And Jeevan Mendis going to fix our problems. Only selection committee should know why they didn't pick Malintha Puspakumara.? Obviously no room for Dilshan Munaweera, Dhanuska Gunatilake or Shehan Jaysuriya?

The best approach by Sri Lankan fans is to ignore the statements about the India tour coming from Jayasuriya and SLC. They are trying to put lipstick on a pig. The bottom line is that the tour was a dismal failure and a major embarrassment.

We, as fans, must look to the future. The England tour will be a marker for how we will fare in the World Cup, and also whether the negative impacts of the India tour remain. There are a number of places up for grabs. The most important of these is the second opener's position in the batting order. Kusal is far too inconsistent. Mahela or Thirimanne seem the most suitable. Mathews apart, the middle order batting is awful. Numbers 7, 8, and 9, need to contribute more runs and play to the situation. Thisara is disappointing and far too inconsistent. A player of his talents should be averaging around 30. Runs from 7,8, and 9, often make the difference between winning a losing. If Thirimanne opens, we need a good number 6. I cannot suggest one.

The return of Herath will strengthen the bowling. Eranga to me is the best of the young fast bowlers. Prasad is more than useful and can also bat. Mendis will probably be OK against England, but, I do not see him as a World Cup option. Malinga's return is presently an open question. He is no longer as effective as he once was.

Sri Lanka should have one of the best fielding sides in the world. We do not. Major improvement needed here.

Do not look to the bumbling administrators to help. They will be spending their time trying to get free tickets, claiming daily allowances, and sponging on friends and relatives.It will be the players and the loyal fans who need to pull Sri Lankan Cricket through the next few months. Cricket is the only sport at which Sri Lanka has a major presence in the world. Forget the self-serving administrators. It is only the players and fans that can help maintain our presence in the world of Cricket.

I really don't think Sanath should argue or participate to any argument against arjuna. Sanath became who he is because of arjuna and no one can say anything against that. it is a well known fact.
What arjuna said was correct and according to the body language of Mahindananda he didn't even knew we beat India in the T20 worlcup final.
as for my idea players should not come to politics. We all love them and when they choose political parties fans get stuck between player and politician.

However Arjuna is the perfect match for Sport minister.

I think its fair to give a chance to Kaushal Silva. Yes he hasn't played much ODI's but that does not mean he is bad in ODI's. Because selectors very rarely give him a chance in ODI's to prove himself. Even in test he has shown that he can accelerate scoring during the matches he played recently.
Glad that Lakshan Rangika given a chance as the frontline spinner in this squad and hope rain stays away for these important two matches with England.

nice article thivi. i strongly believe that jaffna players are the only missing figure to make our team fearsome like windies in 1970's and 1980' s.

Including Kaushal Silva to an ODI squad make no sense. He is a typical test batsman. Dimuth Karunarathne should have been included instead of Kaushal.

Looking forward to see how fringe players like Chandimal, Priyanjan, Kusal, Kithruwan and Vishwa perform in these two warm-up matches.
