Someone will be included instead of Sanga. Most people criticize about Kithruwan's performance. Still he has played 7 or 8 tests. What about Chandimal & Thirimanne. They have already played more than 100+ international matches. Still they are not consistent. For the last test I like to bring all other 3 batters in the squad instead of inform players. Only Dimuth, Koushal & Mathews are the form players up to now in this series. I remove Chandimal & Kithruwan from the last test & also Sanga will not play. Tharanga, Mubarak & Kusal all these players are in top form I like to include all of them. Also Pallekale pitch is fast bowling friendly pitch therefore I include 3 pacers.
My Playing 11;
7.Kusal Janith Perera
Dickwella has the capability to become a very good player. He is a attacking batsman & has a very good technique as well.
May be Kapugedera will be effective in T20 matches. When we search a player for the opening spot for the world cup we gave chances to the Tharanga,Kusal & Dickwella. Because selectors have known his ability as an opener.
My Odi squad for future;
1.Kusal Janith Perera
14.Upul Tharanga/Dimuth Karunarathna
No need to send them to the IPL. Result is they will perform well to the ipl team but not concern about the national team. Also reduces their quality & effectiveness. Even Malinga more recent past didn't perform well to the national team & gave more than 100% to the mumbai indians. Also what happen to the Ajantha & Sachithra even Thisara. Are they effective as before. May be they can be rich ASP but their long term effectiveness destroy. Murali didn't start his career as a quality spinner.But ended his career as a world best spinner. Ajantha & Sachithra started their career as a world class spinners but now they just like part tome bowlers. When money comes easily they don't make big effort.
If you want to get a specialist coach get him over for a length of time. 10 days? What are we going to achieve? He is going to turn things around in 10 days?
What is the secret that Lillee knows about fast bowling that Ramanayak doesn't? Is Fast bowling Rocket Science? Why are we exposing our players to foreigners? We are giving an opportunity for Lille to gain valuable knowledge about our players which he can share with our opponents later on. In addition, Lillee family will get a nice all-paid vacation in Sri Lanka.
If Ramanayaka is not competent enough, why do we employ him? Did'nt he undergo training as a fast bowling coach? Why SLC wants to waste foreign exchange?
I prefer Chameera to have the label "MADE IN SRI LANKA."
If they perform well, IPL will get them with nice contracts. India will analyze them and the two will gradually lose their effectiveness. Meanwhile they will become very rich-good for them- and will be more interested in playing T20 for money. Folks, rest is history.
Are Malinga 2 and Murali 2 in the making?
Hope I am wrong!
Cricket Statsguru : Why Kapugedara ? Dickwella can open and he's a good attacking young player. I think he should open and Kithuruwan should play at 6. And also, Mathews is the most experienced batsman and he should play at 4 and Chandimal at 5.
