Really don't want thisara to play. I think because we haven't seen him for a while, people are feeling more sympathy to give him a chance. He is horribly inconsistent with the bat, and very expensive the ball. I would like to see sachith pathirana take that spot because he played well during Pakistan series. Would also like to see dhammika Prasad instead of kulasekara. Prasad has been the main fast bowler for SL and I think he will be good in t20
Not sure what is going on here but what we all know is theives and looters at SLC are many. If someone stole 1M or 10M is largely irrelevant to us the fans. Stop the stealing and do the right thing for the game is all we ask.
Action at long last and well done to all concerned. This has been the call for years and finally its here. The important thing now is for every incomming committee to run with this without trying to introduce new things. We need to give this a change.
I like the idea of 5 teams around the 5 venues and clubs affiliated to each province. Its a decent plan and a step forward in the right direction and I presume games will be played at these regional venues which will be perfect.

I thought they were getting rid of or prosecuting the corrupt officials I am sure that the new sports minister wouldnt allow bad people like ranatunga to be in charge?
We used to have trial games those days before selection. Good to see SLC planning to have this tournament before T20.
It's a great concept. And it's about time. But kudos to interim committee. I hope however elected will continue. I am looking forward to it. If we can unearth another Milinda would be great.
Yahapalanaya pls don't say stupid stuff like player politics on kithruwan. Even after that incident he played for sl and he was only dropped after his awful performances. The real victim of player politics is Tharanga. Colombo school guys like kithrywan were favoured ahead of outstation players like Tharanga.
Agreed except I want to make just one change. Kula needs to be replaced either with Chameera. Chameera might have been expensive but he is an excellent wicket taking option. Kula on the other hand is useless in indian pitches where there is no swing. Totally agree on Kithuwan. SL selectors and Mathews should be blamed for omitting him even when he is in brilliant form. Wonder if he has become a victim of player politics coz of his awefull attitude. It was Mathews who reported kiththa when he broke out of the hotel room and went with that secretary girl at midnight during test match days. Shehan is a good power hitter but Kiththa is a much better batsman for number 3 in all aspects.
