If Thisara was in the Hobart and MCG then SL may have been in a better position because he is a wicket taker but there is no point playing him at Sydney unless they've changed Sydney to a green top. Play Nuwan Pradeep and Chandimal instead of Welagedara and PJ. The Sydney Test maybe Samaraweera's last test because SL might give his spot to a youngster in 2013 in the 2 Tests.

No point , the way jeevan bowled in that Sydney pitch i think that pitch will be more situated for randiv than perera .

I wonder why Sri Lanka did not pick Jeevan Mendis. We saw him confusing batsmen with his Googlies and getting them out. Instead, Australia got him to play BBL. Did Astralia make sure that their batsmen do not have to face Mendis? Mendis is not bad with the bat either. I like to know your opinion.

He should have played the first test and I dont understand how he was left out of the touring party. A bit late now but better late than never - he is young and in his last test got 4 wickets and scored a 50 and what does SLC do - drop him!

@ SPCG - Thisara,Jeewan & Thirimanne should have been in the original squad in the first place, Jeewan will get his chance in the middle order when Samaraweera retires. and SL should play Jeewan as the second spinner in sub-continent.

@SPCG no no there's no conspiracy in picking up jeevan for BBL , as i remember SL test team was named during the NZ tour , & jeevans sixes inclusion happened just few days before the BBL get started .the thing is that sixes was missing some all rounders in the side due to injuries , first they lost Bravo , then they have to let go mccullum & other countries international players are not available due to their national duties .. so the best option left for them is jeevan.
