Lol @Yahapalanya. I think you are being harsh. Didn't know UT likes it both ways?
Galbanis, yamasana, MDK Julius Caesar, UK Hearth,Bumblebee & Andrew Silva. Don't you think it's about time. You have been caught, it's better you stop this boring blogs with irrelevant stats trying to convince everyone upul has been badly treated. He is bad. Because he is no good. Whatever he achieved in past is history. He still has his weakness outside the off stump. He can't compete with the likes of Dhanjaya, Gunatilake, Udawatte.
Thank goodness he was exposed for his behavior
Stormy, they call cricket a game of glorious uncertainties for a reason:)
Surprised not to see AB and Kholi not in Shezad in.
So we are back to the Tharanga debate again! The write has a point in that I think Thranga was not managed properly given the odd game then dropped and recalled again - one cant really gain much confidence or build a career in that manner.
When this debate started a while back (before the WC!!) I felt there was no room for Tharanga because Sanga, Mahela, Thiri and Dilshan played in the top order - all accumilators. Now that Sanga and Mahela are out (and Dilshan almost done), there are grounds to consider the experienced Tharanga. We did that (was it the Indian tour and was that for test?) but I dont think he grabbed his chance.
Is there still a role for him? Possibly yes provided he puts runs on the board. Obviously we cannot play a guy based on stats alone, especially from 10 years ago when he was a good batter. Also his issues outside the off stump cannot be ignored. Yes alot of batters have the issue but in my opinon Tharanga was noticable more than others.
Put it this way, he is not getting any younger so we need to settle this matter once and for all soon.
Well done to SLC, I reckon this is a positive move. Ara has been around and knows the game well and in a good poition for the director of cricket I reckon.
Stormy, agree with your observation. Their highest chase is 175 v NZ which is comparatively very low.
Ausis were thrashed by the Indians ....... there are in super hot form, unfortunately our Muppet selectors doesn't selected enough batsmen for the Indian tour.... it will be 3-0 on the card.... there is no anji... kusal.. danushka is not in the form.... as well as chandimal....
Galbanis, I think you must have been watching too many sci-fi movies and reading too many comic books. Because your comments is so comical made me laugh. I commend you for that. Laughter is a good medicine.
I think you should stop this disgusting behavior. As it has been pointed out correctly. You are the same person who always putting the same old stats under various names.
Whom are you trying to fool? You need to grow up. Stop using this site to pump up just an ordinary player who is past his days. With a very limited ability of strokes suspect under high ball poor runner inbetween wickets very vulnerable in ground fielding you got to be kidding that he is better than younger players whom he is trying to make way for him?
You need to see a psychiatrist for your mental disorder.
I do feel sorry for you. You need help.
@SLcricket. I agree what you said about Dilhara. He had a grate season with handful of wickets recently. Also we all know he can generate pace. SLC president said we should not always neglect the old players. If they are performing well we should include them because at the moment our fast bowling department lack some pacy bowlers. On the other hand Shaminda Eranga is also doing well. Se Malinga, Chameera might automatically will select but Eranga, Binura, Rajitha, Nuwan Kulasekara,Dilhara and Thushara has serious competition for next few places.
