Do not think he deserves respect.. he needs to earn it. This is not about his past performence. It's about attitude. Sorry.
SANATH IS A STUPID SELECTOR ...SURELY SL CRICKET WILL REST IN PEACE, AFTER BITHTHARA THIRIMANNE. SL FANS GET READY FOR FEW MORE OMMELETES FROM DUCKMANNE. THIRIMANNE IS GETTING READY AS TO DO THE FINALRIGHTS FOR SL CRICKET AND JAYASURIYA WILL BURY THE SLC TO REST IN PEACE... I HARDLY SEE SL BEATING AFGHANISTAN IN ANY FORMAT AFTER PICKING THIRI.
SLC IS SO STUPID TO GIVE MANY CHANCES TO USELESS THIRIMANNE... IF HE HAS TALENT LET HIM PROVE IN DOMESTIC CRICKET FIRST.... HOW CAN HIS JUSTIFY-HIS PLACE????? EVEN HE IS THE BEST CRICKETER OR IN THE CALIBER OF AB DEVILLIERS AND IF HE IS OUT OF FORM FORM SO LONG HOW CAN U PICK HIM... SANATH LEAVE SLC FOR GOD SAKE.
WHATS THE BIG DEAL ABT THIRIMANNE... EVEN HE IS THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD WHEN HE IS OUT OF FORM ...WHY SHOULD HE PICK... SANATH AS DUMB AS USUAL. I M SL CRICKET FAN FOR 25 YEARS N THIS IS THE WILL BE THE LAST TIME.. I VISIT A CRICKET WEBSITE. THANKS THIRIMANNE AND CHANDIMAL FOR MAKING US LOSE INTEREST IN THE GAME.. GOOD BYE
Dissapointing selection, we talk about bringing young players to the national side, then why are we having players like dilruwan perera when we know we have great talent like jeffrey vandersay. Out of all the players i never expected poor vandy to be dropped.
Next problem is Thirimanne, i think its time we let him go. And wasnt there going to be a definite under 19 cricket coming in to the squad, what a load of lies. If any changes can be made, dilruwan out, vandersay in. Thirimanne out, new young batsmen in
Mathews has injury concerns so he should concentrate only on batting. That makes one seamier short so Shanka could fill in as bowling alrounder. Dhannnjaya is a solid batsmen. Importantly he has one of the best bowling averages during last season so he could add off-spinning option too. I have no idea why they took Dilruwan instead of Jeffrey. Could it be his injury? I heard that Eranga bowled well during practice matches so bowling attack is good, probably better than last year with the addition of Chameera. Why bother to talk about bad additions..
@Gamika: if not for sanga, mahela's salvaging acts, those would have been no different to the rest. what about the most important 2015 wc and nz series? tell me what he had really done? the damaged he had done is way above any significant thing (if any at all) he had constructively done to acheive any thing.
he may be from common man's land, but his politicized backing is for the affluent Colombo guys. licking those as**S is nothing new to him, starting from his playing days.
Where is Vandersay.???
Jimmy Anderson will be licking his lips! It'll literally take him 1 over to get through Lahiru's defence, 5 outswingers and then 1 booming inswinger!
We'll stop watching SL cricket mathces. It is a waste of time. Looks like SL cricket is a private property of both overated players. eventhough they perform or not they are always in the side. I love Aravinda and Sanath as players they were my heroes. but As selectors i hate both. most sturborn selectors i hv ever seen. If these 2 have a brain they should understand that there is no point of having talent unless u perform at the international level. shame u both selectors.
