Above is the opened black-box record of SL ODI Cricket's Crashed Jet Plane!   It's  precise Flight Path, starting from Jan 2017 is displayed here in detail, for blind to see. !! Overall Functionality of top five engine components were compared against the solitary turbocharger, that relentlessly tried to increase the power output of ill-fated jet plane without much help from all other components, hoping to reach the destination somehow……  Now what caused the crash?   Judgment is yours.!  

Everyone knows SL's brittle Batting Unit is thin as a wafer and it Caused all those repeated Humiliations, Whitewashes, Minnow's' Kicking received on the back, early exits from ICC-CT, Asia Cup & the constant pain, even Morphine wouldn't be able to subside.   

Nothing more to say .!  What's all left for us now is, watching the next move of the "wise-guys" , probably ended up removing the last bolt of the solitary working wheel remaining in the chariot…  going downhill.! 

The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent,  and that's power.  Because they control the minds of the masses.

P.S.  As someone requested here in this blog, I am adding the following stats regarding the World Ranking of Openers.

World Rankings of Most Productive Openers  since Jan 2017  to Date!

SL Opener Upul Tharanga ranked at 10  & Niroshan Dickwella at 11  (The period considered From 2017, because Upul was not allowed in 2016).  Even this rankings show who is the ideal pair to Open SL.! But they will continue with all sorts of "do-littles" until we eat the ultimate bullet.

  1. we have a specialised batsmen
    we have a specialised batsmen and dashing opener called Upul de Bradman who is 34 years old and can’t bowl nor field and played more than 230 ODI over the last 10-15 years but still average 34 and SR 75. This year Upul has played 12 ODIs with a world class average of 27 and mighty SR of 75. scoring 100s is nothing for him so he scored non this year.

  2. Awesome blog article with
    Awesome blog article with informative content. nicely presented. Julius seems to have nailed all his critics this time with unbeatable illustration of facts. 🙂 Cheers!

  3. You have made a decent

    You have made a decent defense of tharanga’s record as you continue to do in this forum.Hope you aren’t his agent .

    What i would like to see is his record stackedup against operners from other top 6 countries from 2016 onwards .

    I have no strong feelings about tharanga being in the team or him being dropped . The batting unit has failed as a group for so long everyone needs to improve .

    What i would like to see from tharanga is the ability to read situations and guide young players through tough phases.You don’t need to be the captain to be a leader. He’s the most senior batsmen in the team afterall !
