Thisara

Thisara's exclusion is unacceptable, not sure he is being rested ahead of the series against South Africa.

SL selectors have left out Tisara for d WI tour. A huge surprise no doubt considering its ODI series which his strength. Unless he is rested

I agree with selectors

I think it's a very good decision (Thisara's exclusion). Coz he has been representing the national team for a long time. But it is not clear whether he shows his maturity and the responsibility as a experienced player. Though he provides some spicy contributions in all departments I feel that he is not working on his weaknesses/faults/defects. I think this is a strong message from the selectors to Thisara and hope he would understand it. As cricinfo points, selectors may have wanted to test the Dilahara Lokuhettige. As long as Thisara in the squad, Lokuhettige will not get any chance. So selectors may have cut down that option as well :)

The same case could have been a one of the reasons to exclude Ajantha Mendis from ICC CT2013. Frankly I expected to see some new faces in the squad. Suranga Lakmal for Malinga and Angelo Perera for Jeewan Mendis could have been an easy replacements.

Rotation Policy into Sri Lanka Cricket?

Has the rotation policy fever caught SL? How can Dilhara find a place?

I would like to hear SJ's

I would like to hear SJ's reasons for Perera decision. Hope it's a workload matter!
And hoping Mendis make his comeback count at least this time.

Should Tharanga open? Or bat in the middle order? And let Mahela open with KJP?

bold

bold decision to drop Thisara, justified though.He has done nothing significant in the recent past, occasional heroics should not count, given the amount of time he has been in the team he has to be more consistent as an allrounder esp with his batting.

Nice to see Tharanga back, hope he performs well.
