srilanka should change their batting order. thirimanne is not having a gr8 avg against england in england. i am frm india so i dont know abt the domestic players of srilanka .i was seeing the match no one except kusal mendis and mathews had a gr8 technique . kudos to mendis he played really well in the 2nd innings he had a bit of experience in these conditions as he played for middlesex.bowling was very good they troubled england batsmen who i think where a bit overconfident but they will be cautioned enough and play well so atb 4 srilanka

Admins..That idiot BCCSL whom you blocked has come back with this new account "The.cricketer3"
Please do us all a favour and block this one too.
If you read the article without who wrote this piece it makes sense. Very pertinent points made. But it was written by Vaughan who we all know has Foot and Mouth disease. Having known his traits and respect he shown towards a country's national anthem I really doubt if he would be writing this if the boot is on other foot. I hope someone should remind him of good old days when England got a real shellacking form others most often by Australia.
I don't mind this. I want him to keep giving more oxygen. If this doesn't get to fireup our boys then we should seriously consider whether they are fit to play for our country. Talent doesn't alone win you matches. You need have to believe in yourself, the hunger and the fire in your belly.
I hope these kind of articles will help if our boys didn't have the fire in thier bellies.
@Dias He certainly wasn't interested a few years back. More interested in shorter formats...ODIs and T20s.
Reason for thinking this is because of email conversations I have from straight form the horse's mouth from upto 2013, along with some interviews I saw around same time in various sources trying to justify career record at the time as being good.
Maybe today in 2016 with his views/attitude/approach. I do not know about current but based on performances in 2015/16 just a hunch not much has changed.
Chandimal has done well in Test cricket. This topic is just stupid.
Nikang gong post thaanda epa. He was the highest scorer for sri lanka last year in test. I had been following island cricket for a while and this is a shame and I am afraid I may stop following this page.
Delan why do you think he is not interested?
Other teams have a huge talent pool but not SL. That's why even after dropping a player they have to go back and reselect the player few months later. Sanath is not mature enough to be patient. He made too many changes from 2013-2015 and caused today's issues.
SLC has not named the replacement yet.
weather condition is a lame excuse for an international team .especially when we have enough locations in Sri Lanka with closer weather to durham (11c 8:pm according to google ) , i was in nuwara eliya last month the weather went down to 13c in the early morning before the sun rise and i heard there was an ice rain in piduruthalaga as well (now 12c via google) . badulla also sometimes get very cold i believe .. there are enough gov Bungalows and hotels around sri lanka in these cold areas for these players to accommodate & get used to conditions with nice fitness camps & other practices you can do without practice pitches . they did nothing like that. so no point of crying over the weather now .
