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.
Very good this is done good future for sri lanka?
If sri lanka wants to come for atleast SEMI FINAL sri lanka should not consider THIRIMANNE. apart from him the above squad is ok. thirimanne's class is too good to play cricket. even he is the best batsman in the world sri lanka should replace him with SHEHAN JAYASURIYA. these guys expect 100, 200 hundreds from new comers. I am really impressed the way shehan played soo far. still learning period for him. IF SELECTORS BACKED THIRIMANNE, CHANDIMAL, WHY THEY CANT BACK THIS GUY. i think vandersay will be a better option than sachitra. he is not accurate like past. it will be good if we look for DHAMMIKA PRASAD.
DILSHAN, KUSAL, KITHRUWAN, CHANDIMAL, MATHEWS, KAPUGEDARA, MILINDA, VANDERSAY, KULASEKARA, HERATH, MALINGA
others : SHEHAN, DHAMMIKA, VANDERSAY, LAKMAL
