Let me remind you. 28 yr UT was axed by Sanath from Odis in the prime of his career in mid 2013, just 3 weeks after Upul recording SL's 2nd FASTEST 5k runs, with his career best unbeaten 174* & 12th MoM, putting up his 7th x 200+ stand, which is a World Record to date..
IS This looks like a DECLINE of UT's Career to you ..??? Virtually Sanath is responsible for completely ruining 3 yrs of UT's career, without any decent window of opportunity., creating a massive problem in the opening spot, ongoing to date, since UT was axed.in 2013. No need to tell how SJ's pet-boy Kusal ruined 20 odis to collect 71 runs - 3.5 Av - 55 SR.
Even now Sanath is doing the same thing to destroy UT's career completely & incapable-skipper Mathews (obviously scared of players senior to him) may be also involved in it.
you can support Sanath the architect who is responsible for the pathetic state of SL cricket today.. ..to complete the demolishing job that he started 3 years back.
Both Tharanga's are in peak form as seen from their most recent premiere league 1st class records. (Paranavthana 79 Av, Upul 62 Av & 34 Av in his most recent 6 Tests played after 7 yrs, with a Test Winning Contribn)... but they have no place in the squad full of repeated failures and some undeserved rookies.
Send off was ridiculous. I think even the welcome for the 96 World Cup champs didn't cost SLC this much.
Thilanga's timely treat for the SL media worked wonders for him.
when Sanath was the captain /Senior player/ chief selector these players emergeed who later proved to be more valuable than your list.
Lasith Malinga (Malinga was helped by Sanath in his early part of career along with Champaka, a senior who later protected Mali due to a private non cricketing reason first rejected him as a dangerous net bowler)
Upul Tharanga (with the retirement of Sanath and the rise of Mathews, Tharanga's career declined)
Vandersay is unlucky. But not sure if he is still recovered 100% recovered from his injury also
vice captain isn't scoreing???
Chandi was the highest Test run getter not only from SL but also from Asia.His poor T20 form has overhyped Test perfomences.
Other facts are so true about Thiri Lakmal & Dilruwan.
He doesn't surprise by getting articles like this about himself published.
He does shock and astound us by his antics !
He belongs to the last regime of bombastic, boasters who abused their office to the maximum. The saad part is that this regime hasn't the guts to oust such people.
I would agree 100% not because he failed, but the so called "GODS" who are like rats rip anything which comes on their way. Sanath is a cancer to Sri Lanka cricket. Simple as that.....
Shame on you SANATH JAYASURIYA!!!!!!! RIP
Udara was most unlucky in NZ including a rank Hora out and a run out. He looked good in defense and had a nice flow to his strokes. Roshen Silva is an excellent middle order prospect for tests and is most unlucky to miss out. Both these players have the talent to play the moving ball
