Yes very unlike Mahela Jayawardena who without any shame would sacrifice anybody as he did to Marvan in 2007 World Cup!

agree with Stinger . But this is a pretty old incident, it happened almost 4 years ago ,chandi and mathews were very young, almost like kids to international cricket at that time , kids do mistakes.. but what matters is that both of these players have changed now .. they have matured enough .. especially chandi have proven it by saying no to WWE & in WT20 ..no point of talking about this topic over and over again.

@Stinger, actually Mathews had trust in his OWN ability rather than Chandimal's. Apparently what Mathews had told Chandimal was "Go for it, if u mess up, I can take care of it"

for me that's how a captain should be....

Guys, what we have to understand is Cricket is not about personal milestones. I know Mathews trusted Chandimal's ability but so much risk was taken to achieve it and he put the game on the line. :) What if Keistwetter held on to that chance? :) :)

Except in 2007 final(which was affected by rain) Alan Wilkin was there in every final SL played and SL lost all of them. He was not part of the commentary team for the final in 2014 and look what happened :D)))))

@Anonymous #6,

lets call a spade a spade shall we?? I supported Sanga/Mahela and co when Arjuna unfairly tried to squeeze in a England tour blocking the 'WWE' in 2009 without prior notice to the players...

but last England tour was ON FTP, but they(Sanga/Mahela) decided to skip the warm ups. If u can remember Sanga came to terms with the conditions only in the Last Test match in that series and scored a match saving ton.Imagine if he came to terms with the conditions from the 1st test itself... That tour could've turned out even better.

note: Dilshan returned IMMEDIATELY as soon as he can from WWE and played both warm ups. and scored 193 @ Lords.... Prasanna J end up being the Man of the series....

PS: my opinions have nothing to do with SL media... they are a joke..

When you perpetuate lies and myths often enough, as Rex and others did, the ignorant masses tend to swallow these lies and myths over time. That is what has happened in the case of Uppercut it appears!

For the more discerning public though, checking the facts is an important facet before making any claims. In this case, therefore, the fact is that Sanga and Mahela did not go "straight to Test cricket without any warmup games..... practically in the 11th hour" as stated by Uppercut.

The fact is that there were two warm-up games scheduled before the first Test - one against Middlesex and one against England Lions. Sanga and Mahela missed the former against Middlesex but played in the the warm up against the Lions.

But because they both failed to contribute too much till Sanga's century in the 3rd Test, missing that first warm-up game for the IPL became the "obvious reason" as to why they both failed!
