Sign of things to come I am afraid folks! Infact this could be closer than we think unless we find a few players (other than Sanga, Mahela, Dilshan, Malinga and Herath) who can bat and bowl.
The requirement should be administrative skills first and 'played cricket' as a nice to have nut not essential. Its the old story that the best cricketers arent neccessarily the best coaches....or administratots. These days one requires proper qualifications to run a multi-million dollor comapany and it would be wrong not apply this logic to cricket.
This is a Joke, he is joking. Mark is a good bloke. This is a comedy segment. People are overreacting here. All the national teams know what Sri Lanka is. As far as not being fav is the best thing a team can ask for. Less pressure. We are loosing matches, because we don't still have our best 11 out on the park. We are experimenting with our third string line up. You can't beat the best New Zealand team w/o Kulasekara, Senanayake, Malinga and Matthews. I thought the Sri Lankan cricket fans were smart. When did we start thinking like Indian cricket fans. Come on ppl.. Show some faith.
My World cup squad,
0thers - 12.Nuwan Pradeep
15.Nuwan Kulasekera/Thisara Perera.
ok, this is what we wanted! hope our guys will inspire after these comments! just like Kepler's comments during 2011 SA tour.
SL selectors need to do two changes to the squad. 1. Upul Tharanga in for Dimuth 2. Kusal Perera in for Jeewan. Then my first choice team for the WC will be .....
Chandimal should also be out!!
