No matter how desperately the bitter bandwagon of supporters try to whitewash the crimes of their buddies... Thilanga seems to have realized it and doing the right things to rectify the total mess. He had already appointed a foreign coach and restructuring the selection process. There are many obvious reasons for him to do that, as clearly pointed out by the author of this blog.
Upul Tharanga, Farveez Maharoof, Niroshan Dickwella, Romesh Buddhika, Tharindu Kaushal are a few victims of Nepotism. Likewise, Kusal Janith, Thirimanne, Thisara Perera, Kithuruwan, Mubarak etc were a few notable failures who were given unending chances never justified, due to pure favoritism. Thar was the scenario repeatedly happened during past couple of years. This is a fact already endorsed by the actions of newly appointed SLC president Thilanga.
Please note: the above post #33 was written by a RANCID Polsambol's imaginary CLONE as accused by the looser :D)))
@Anonymous1 Mahela has given so much to Sri Lankan Cricket how can you even question his motives; anyway he's entitled to some retirement fun! We have to move on with new players otherwise the team will never develop...Mahela shouldn't come back.
We should stop talking about Sangakkar's and Mahela's retirement by now. Let us be positive and move on and try to get to a position where we can say "we are not affected anymore by the retirement of Mahela and Kumar".
I know some fans of these two will attack me for this.
Folks, we should be talking about what SL cricket is going to do to win matches, not what those two have done in the past. They were compensated with tremendous amount of wealth for their services to the country. In fact, they are still reaping the fruits of their labor, thanks to the opportunity Sri Lanka gave them.
Did they stay in Sri Lanka after the retirement and volunteer to help the SL team? No. They packed their bags and flew away looking for more money. They are not special. They are just like you and me, trying to make a buck. So, don't give them too much accolades. We should appreciate what they did to SL cricket but, don't go overboard.
Well done boys!!!
I voted no.
But he might come back. I feel that he did not retire from SL cricket to be with his family but, to make more dollars playing around the world-I do not blame him. So he might consider WC T 20 to make some money and also a chance to win a spot in the IPL. He was not bought in the IPL auction.
By allowing retired players to come back shows that SL cricket is poor in talent. Also, remember the mess we got into playing Sangakkara during the Indian tests.
Mahela, please do not come back! We can do with out you.
yeah we do have a pretty good recollection of things he did in the only occasions he got to play in 4 consecutive matches in any format during past two and half years (after 7 years in tests).
Especially the sparkling 83 runs with 14x4 and a six against S-Africa's pace men and the series winning 92 with 12 x4 and the 45 made in crucial decider vs Pak on two-phased difficult wicket as Opener, dealing with new ball.
Also, we remember how he was dropped for the next series in NZ. Also remember the 46 & 48 valuable runs made against Pak as No3 in the solitary chance given after one year vs Pak and how he was dropped again for the 3rd time within 5 tests, despite making an unbeaten run-a-ball 50* in the tour match vs India, axing from the squad for first 2 tests and given the last test changing the position to salvage failing Dimuth and that was the only time he failed in his intermittent 6 tests, but Dimuth failed in all 3 tests vs India (producing just 67 runs at 11 Average from 6 innings) and got selected for next NZ tour. But pathogens remember only UT's single failure.
Tharanga's career may have destroyed by those wicked culprits responsible for overall downfall of SL cricket. Without giving a proper chance no one could judge a player's current worthiness. Which is evident to any fool. This is simple logic only malice would try to defy.
This thread reminds me of the famous quote: "The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is"
No worries. I am no admin here but I am sure many will prefer things Sri Lanka related only. Because there are lots of pages and forums for Pakistanies and Indians but may be this is the only Sri Lankan fan site.
OH sorry ! i thought i can post all Countries Videos in this section
Mate plz kindly stick to Sri Lanka related posts only.
