i think selectors and management got it WRONG when they expected Thisara to perform the role of a FRONT LINE BOWLER. He is more of a 7-0ver(ODI)bowler rather than a 10-over bowler.

This MISUNDERSTANDING led selectors being disappointed with THisara's performance specially with the ball.

However Thisara cannot be blameless...

Basically at the beginning Thisara=Mathews

but where they differed was Mathews worked his ass off in his batting and now a FRONT LINE batsman.... Thisara never seem to work on his batting technique... and hence now he is neither BATSMAN nor BOWLER.

PS: that was regarding Thisara's selection in the team. NO COMMENTS regarding PRIVATE LEAGUES..

We need the likes of Tharindu Kaushal and Rumesh Buddika to play for SL to stop this slide. We were very lucky in the UK not to lose the series. but against the proteas SL's weaknesses exposed.

@Stormy Marvan or the players won those matches in England ? cannot judge a coach by one tour imo

Marvan need some time , maybe till another away tour .. if his team keep winning away tours i'm ok with him as a coach . but surely we need to do something about our poor fielding , correct call by SLC if they axe kalpage

Well folks that was nothing short of pathetic! There was supposed to be contest today but SL never arrived to starters line. Lets not take anything away from the SA fast bowling, how good were they on a 5th day flat track in Galle. The deal for today was to continue from yesterday but its like SL arrived at a different venue and different game. Again there were poor shots from Thiri, Chandi and Sanga (has he every played a worse shot). Yes the bowling was good but the batting was pathetic. Didnt expect SL to win easily but was expecting a contest but there was no contest at all.

Surely Marvan has shown enough in Eng that he is the man for the job?

It would be insane if such a talent is mis-managed to the extent that he get disgrunted and is lost to the game. I dont understand what the issue is with granting a NOC to a player ahead of an A tour. In the CPL he will be playing against world class international players and how can that be bad. What's more they denied him a NOC for the big bash too. Something needs to be done to ensure this talent is not lost because the administrators cant get their act togeather.

Jarrod Kimber has got his facts all wrong too. Most players in Sri Lanka are usually employed in the commercial sector and work for banks etc and they play for the bank's team in the mercantile competition. But Herath was playing county or league cricket for a long time before getting back into SL squad so he has not worked in the bank for a long time. Most of those who are impressed by Jarrod Kimber and Andrew Fernando are those who are weak in the English language.
