yes, this defeat is because usually the 'A' team slots r taken by 'discards' from the national team. 'A' team shud b reserved for youngsters.

A month ago we had a thread in IC. Which is the longest I believe! Many SL fans did accept that. But the Answers are coming for that thread in form of U19 WC and now against Ireland. AJ was 100% correct.

@Sakthivel, look at the sri lankan A team, it;s filled with old SL players, NOT the real talented young sri lankans. one cannot judge the talent from A team filled with old guys!

u19 wc is not a gurantee about a player as a "legend" but it can indicates the potential to be a "legend". Best example is sanath jayasuriya.he play u19 wc too but his record was average.but we all know what he did to world cricket. Same about arjuna , aravinda.if Ajay jadeja says true then azhar, jadeja,kambli,ganguly,dravid,kumble,laxman, also not talented like sanath, arjuna, aravinda,even upul chandana coz they neither in u19 wc win or icc worldcup win. As per your arguement then mohomed kaif (captain of u19 winnig india team 2000) should be in your team now. where is he? That much talented indians why face to 8-0?

India with all the talent lost to lowly ranked New Zealand in their own back yard and then blame the pitch for the loss.

That is the standard excuse for them instead of acknowledging that they were beaten by a better side on the day.

Indians dont respect anyone and dont give the due credit for the win to the opposition. When they lost to Lanka in Hambantota they again blamed the pitch.

@ Dasun : I have said many time, Come to present, You always talk about the past arjuna, aravinda, azhar.

@Rukshan Thenuwara : At least we blame about pitches. But u guys blame ur own players bribed and money etc.

We indian never blame our players about money issue.

Sakthivel is incapable of answering Dasun's question. Well done Dasun, you foxed him left, right and center.

According to Sakthivel's logic:

The Australian side of 75 which lost the world cup final is not talented?

The England teams which lost the 79 world cup final is not talented?

The West Indian team of 83 which lost the world cup final is not talented?

The England team which lost the World cup final in 87 is not talented?

The England team which lost the 92 World cup final is not talented?

The Australian team which lost the 96 world cup final is not talented?

The Pakistan team which lost the 99 world cup final is not talented?

The Indian team which lost the world cup final in 2003 is not talented?

All the South African teams since re admission are not talented since they didn't win a world cup.

What kind of foolish logic is that. Aiyooo makes me laugh.
