As a cricketer, sanath had destroyed dozen of bowlers’s career, he had a ‘fear factor’ in his batting in true sense. Now, as a chief selector, he is doing same with his country’s young talent.
During his tenure so far, young players like- chamara kapugedera, akhila dhanajay, tharindu kaushal, bhanuka rajapaksha, roshen silva, upul tharanga finds themselves behind sidelines regularly at various stages of their career..
Now, he is doing the same with another promising youngsters’ career in a big way. At 23, angelo perera has been regarded as one of the most talented young batsman in the island. During last few months, he debuted in both one dayers and T20s. But now, suddenly, he has disappeared.
Just recently, sri lanka A had played a Non-official test series against New zealand, but angelo was not included in playing XI, though he was part of one day series. And now, in ongoing domestic four-day series, in which every single future prospect is participating in playing XI, angelo, being included in board XI, he is warming the benches.
And as, this is not enough, he has been also thrown out of the 24 probable’s list for the upcoming home series against New zealand. Some time back, he had been regarded as the next big thing in sri lanka cricket, but now he has not been given chances, to play even in domestic competition.
So, is there any conspiracy against perera ? he bats in middle order and bowls left-arm orthodox. Interestingly, A high profile cricketer called Ramith Rambukwella also bats in lower middle order, and bowls off spin. if he is injured, there is no issue. but if there is any conspiracy, then any sri lankan fan can understand, what selectors are trying to do?
