@Anonymous Personally I prefer him to go up the order. Def not down. I can see I was not clear. My fault. I don't think Angelo wants to move though. He is comfortable where he's at in order. And that's prob end of that discussion.

@SLCricket1 One day go ask the manager, coach and some of the players of that Australian tour where Angelo was skipper of all 3 formats (when they are no longer contracted with SLC of course) and you will see/hear what truth is.
What Sanath said is as true as him saying SL have the best bowling attack in the world. Or numerous other public comments he has made, like why he picked certain MP's son etc etc.
Wonderful player was Sanath for Sri Lankan cricket but surely you don't take all public media comments as Gospel in his roles after retirement.

As for VC or captaincy tag. Yes They should be irrelevant but lets be realistic, from the record of SLC especially with Thiramanne are they going to do so. WT20 is different scenario...yes i know you think its same.
And seems you are taking into account Chandimals ODI and T20 performances all mixed together with Test and tour first class performances in your call for him to be dropped from the Test side. Otherwise his tour aggregates no different to some of his team-mates. And his test record with bat actually on rise in last year.

Whether it's the current board, interim one or the previous board they are all under the umbrella (name) SLC so what Sa’adi is written is true and not misleading. Personnel may have been different but same organisation/governing body.

Good to see SLC respond but they could have made all explanations without talking about being malicious and defamation. By doing so they are assuming the readers are all stupid also, and not realising the board changed.

Ireland have a good ODI side and will be home.
But at this stage you hope SL still have what is required to get over the line, and after Test series would have some acclimatisation to conditions in UK and Ireland.

@AmilaSaman get your facts right mate , kusal mendis did not arrived in the national side directly from the domestic cricket like
Chaminda Bandara in here . he played in the Sri Lanka A, Sri Lanka A Emerging Players sides and shined in those teams with stats that earns his place to the national side . I remember him scoring a century in India & was among the highest runs scorers in other practice games after that as well , before he got the national cap . so stats of mendis was the guide for him to get selected .domestic stats of Chaminda Bandara is the best among the bowlers , even it is a gamble to get a player to the national side without any SL A experience I'm okay with the our most inform fast bowler getting a direct entry to the national side . that's why we play domestic cricket for , to pick best players for the national side when they are in good form .

So far 67% of fans say he should have been the choice.

JLion85 where did you hear Chaminda Bandara has been selected?
