Where is the video?
I think its time to give Chandi a break in T20 and use it as an opportunity to try others. We have an army of wicket keepers and our T20 strategy must move towards big hitting. No its not all about sixers but we are lacking in this area and need a change.
Yes - if he is not going to play limited overs cricket then there is no role for him. We dropped him after one failed test in SA doesn't mean he should be dropped from all forms.
We can't blame this coach now can we!! If it was the previous coach (hint: from SL) everyone had ago and was quick to call for the head. This was one of SL's poorest shows and understandably so it was one of our poorest teams to tour SA. A lot of inexperienced batters and the experienced one's batted like they weren't. So who do we blame? We have already blamed and changed the coach and selectors. Hey why not the captain? Just keep blaming everyone till things come right.
Hmm...not really surprised as I don't believe there are other viable options but not exactly looking forward to Anji's lethargic captaincy. Having said that, no one had any problems with Anji when we won the Aus series!
Dickwella and Dhannanjaya aren't the only players performing in domestically. Weerakody, Karunanayaka, Aponso, Milinda Pushpakumara, Asanka just few more examples. The way Dickwella and Dhananjaya played I I could see good opening pair coming through. Impressing thing is they played according to the ball unlike Chandimal. Chandimals problem is in shorter format he is predetermined and if the ball is not their what he planned he got failed. Problem with Mathews is he does not trust new talents. I heard that Thickshilla is a good baller who can ball youkers at will. Next one is Sandaken. He can be handful if the pitch is gripping. I see serious issues with Mathews captaincy. Confirming him for captaincy is 2019 is giving more freedom to do what Mathews want. What I am thinking is selectors have diffrent agenda than naming a team for winning.
KJP should replace Chandimal.
I think we should not let Dinesh Chandimal, Kusal Mendis & Dhananjaya De Silva to play in the T20 side not because they are bad but we need them in the ODI and Test. Therefore rather than practicing those fancy shots we should encourage them to focus more on their technique and to focus on building the innings and partnership which we will need in the test and odi.
awesome.. We should make sure these make a loud noise... Even the media is not applying enough pressure on these money lusting nasty two faced robbers who r slc !!! ok maybe that was too much but this is getting beyond tolerance!! The previous selection committee was by far the best we had in ages... Just a list of players i noticed got opportunities under previous committee .
1)Kusal mendis 2)dannanjaya 3) Danushka gunathileke 4)Jeffrey vandersay 5) Milinda siriwardene 6) Dasun shananka 7)Asela gunaratne 8) Kapugedara .. There may be others.. to be honest this committee unearthed some as well (aponso ,sandakan ,lahiru kumara ) but for no use as they don't stick with any youngsters.. The above mentioned players are enough to win us matches but these smart(dumb?)asses go back to old shit like thisara, prasanna, senannayake,etc... didn't meant to insult any player , they also can perform but they don't deserve to be the team... they have not earned the right to be there despite getting multiple chances..
Its about time we stop having players like chandimal in T20.. Slc is ruining sl cricket..
