uppercut yes i will upload it
bad memory all of you!
watch the video and see the date! not even kusal can play like this!!!
Agreed with Murali on Jeewan and Dimuth but not on Tharanga. I dont see the relevance of Tharangas runs in two previous WC - that was 4 and 8 ago on flat tracks. These are different wickets and Tharanga's technique will struggle.
Those of you calling for Marvan's head please consider the options we had. There were none of half baked internationals, all of who have run for one reason or another in recent times. we cant just keep calling for the coaches head - we won all forms of cricket in Eng and Pakistant under Marvan. The deal was he would be given a two year stint and then reasses, calling for his head this close after his appointment makes no sense to me. Give hims a chance and he had done a decent job in 6 months of his 2 year stint.
Also please come up with options when you call for the coaches head as SLC couldnt find anyone of repute for the job!
Yaak, Thoranak wage,
Lets stop messing around here, this series is good at lost and its not like going to make a guge difference. Rest Anji to make sure he is fit for the WC. He also must bowl against the lower ranked teams. Just keep him warm for the games that matter please.
Agreed with the author. I know Chandi took a beating and failed alot but towards the end of the English games and the only test he got, he scored runs and now left out while we try Dimuth and Thiri as openers. What is going on, surely we should have already played him in the series and given him a chance to discover his touch from past performance on fast wickets.
I am afraid I will blame the players. I note the majority vote for the selection committe but lets face its not like they left behind a Sanga or Mahela. The major match winners are all there and lets not live in the illusion that the non-selection of a Kusla or the selection of Jeewan cost us the WC. The cup will be won or lost by the core players selected.
Interesting the coach is up - this same coach won us all forms of cricket in Eng and against Pakistan!
The time for blaming and arguing is over the players simply need to stand up and be counted. You cannot blame others when a international player drops a catch and bowls rubbish.
Finally can we get over the schools and religeon matter - surely there are other forums to discuss this those that are interested and not a cricket forum.
@Surod - totally agreed.
I am reluctant yes as cover for Anji. From what I can see options are limited.
This is not the best move for cricket fans. CSN has actually been good in telecasting no news interruptions and all. But on the other hand, State Media has more coverage. But personally I think, CSN as the country's sports channel should have the right to telecast cricket matches, or atleast hand over some tournament coverage to MTV Sports. This is more of a political hate on Rajapakse after the power change.
Eranga for me surely, he has some experience and ability to take wickets. Dilhara Fernando? really?
