Be it Chandi or Tharanga someone else would have to lead the T20 side.probably Malinga

Two pretty good balls (and a bit of luck on the bowled) and two bad balls with a stunning catch for one and the batsman hitting it straight to the fielder for the other. Wouldn't select him still, he needs to show that he can be economical and effective at taking wickets- consistently.

It was going to be tough and it was worse! The 3-0 result was never in doubt but the manner of the loss was worrying. The batting was no where all series with poor technique and shot selection. There is actually nothing to say about the batting.

One would say the bowling was decent but on perfect bowling conditions, we couldn't knock over the SA openers in 5 times they batted with 2 century stands and 2 fifty stands for the opening wicket. I must say Lakmal bowled really well but the news of the tour is Kumara. Not sure why he wasn't given the new ball but we all know the captaincy issues.

Better teams have toured SA and lost badly so the result was never an issue but the total inability to compete was awfully disappointing.

Looking for something better in the limited overs series.

Point is potential players dont use their opportunity and convert their chances to places.

My Opening pair for this T20 will be Niroshan Dickwella and Dhananjaya de Silva

Amila Aponso is performing really well in the Premier tournament. He was left out for no reason. Lets give him support through media coz he deserves a place in the side.

Not necessarily to sack the Captain or replace any players. The best players are already in the team. It is only the application to play in overseas condition. This team is capable of winning any team in home conditions. They have already shown this against Australia. Bear in mind that they list key players in the immediate past in the likes of likes of Mahela, Sangakkara, Dilshan, Dammika etc. Previous Cricket Board must take the responsibility for not looking after Mahela and others. Smooth changes would have helped to find correct combination two years ago. Our team will definitely come out very well soon.
