This Muppet has taken us to new lows in our Cricket history. We have lost two series at home against teams which are struggling at the minute. The reason we have a coach who can't coach. He is responsible for our Batting collapses. Because he is our Batting coach too. It's time SLC took him out of this misery and brought someone who can at least bring some sanity.

Jehan's inclusion is pointless. Too old. No impact at all.
I feel that people are being a little harsh at Kaushal Silva, he does the openers job to see off the new ball and start the scoring; the main bulk of the runs has to come from the number 3/4/5 batsmen, the openers must just make a start and take the shine away.
Tharanga cannot open in tests because of his off stump weakness. He should have been put down the order and Thirrimanne at 3, who has just had a bad series.
Dimuth has been unlucky I'd say, he still has the propensity to score big and his dynamic with Kaushal Silva is decent. They just need to keep spending time together opening and they'll develop; we don't play enough test cricket as a country so they need extended runs in the team.

Completely agree with you cricket statsGuru. There are some here who keep on harping about upul the fool Tharanga. And how good a player he is and bringing all those irrelevant statistics to make them heard again and again. Tharanga has shown us how good he was in the test matches he played. And obviously proved most of us right. If selectors saw the light little earlier and not picked Tharanga, Mubarak and dropped Karunaratne for the younger players. Maybe things could have been different. It's our batting which let us down. We need to make sure that the history doesn't repeat itself again by getting rid of all three from the squad.

Anyway all 5 of them should be DROP from the WI test squad if SL have any chance of winning the test series and come back with a force.

If these 5 players play still SL will go to deep end. ALL of them played more than 20 test with averages around 18-32. (How poor our batsman are)

Can't we find any other batsman ?

There are players called Dhananjaya De Silva, Roshen Silva, Kithuruwan Vithanage, Chamara Kapugedara for the selectors attention !!!!!

Are selector thinking naturally aggressive players can't play test cricket ??

KUSAL PERERA give a great example for the selectors in this test match for this question by scoring 57 and 70 in debut match. So why can't they give chances to Kapugedara and Kithuruwan too.

Useless players like UPUL THARANGA, DIMUTH KARUNARATHNA AND JEHAN MUBARAK SHOULD BE DROPPED FROM THE SQUAD ENTIRELY FOREVER.

All those peple who bashing Chandimal should know that he hs the same test average as Koli with better S/R. he has never been averaged below 40 and has won lot of matches for SL, famous victory against SA in SA is one example,

In cricket world they say Australia,England and South African condition are the toughest to face for foreign players. Chandimal has played 32 ODI matches in these countries and his average is 44.72 which is the highest average for a SL player in these condition and 3rd highest average in subcontinent. Sanga’s average is 44.67 which is the 2nd highest in SL.

If you check the batting average only in Australia pitches, Dinesh Chandimal holds the best average among subcontinent players with 55 batting average in 16 matches where 2nd best is G Gambir and next is Sanga. He holds the world record of scoring fastest test 1000 runs in cricket history, ABD is 2nd and Sanga is 3rd, list goes on..

Being emotional is another reason for this defeat in the third test. Especially Chandimal was in a angry mode & he sacrificed his wicket unnecessarily.
May be batting order is also not the ideal one. Besides, if Sri Lanka had three fast bowlers, we could have attacked India more with the bowl.

Further, agree with SLCricket1 too. Umpires also played well for India.
