  3. Sadeera need more
    Sadeera need more international exposure and this is not the right time for that. Kamindu Mendis is a good gamble considering his both hands bowling ability and decent batting skills.

  4. If Tharanga and Chandimal are
    If Tharanga and Chandimal are playing in the same limited overs team we will keep losing unless one if not both change their game plan. Just look at the top 4 in other countries ask yourself if this is a plan to chase 300+ scores. What’s more this plan has been tried, for the last 2 years, and where has that got us. Let atleast makes plans, is successfull, will result in chasing and setting totals near the 300 mark.

  5. @ Stormy –
    Don’t make

    @ Stormy –

    Don’t make foolish comments on stupid assumptions man.

    How can you compare our best ODI batter since 2016, Upul Tharanga Who had scored the Most runs (10 innings lesser than Mendis) and Highest Average @ 3rd highest Strike Rate among all (who had scored a minimum 250 runs)

    Tharanga had maintained the BEST overall record among all No 1-4 SL batters 1309 runs @ 42.22 Average & 88 SR maintained over 36 Odi ings.!!!!

    How can you compare this with anyone in the side let alone the useless slow-going bottleneck like Chandimal (71 SR)??

    The performance rankings of SL batters @ No1-4 Since 2016:

    WU Tharanga – 36 – 1309 – 42.22 Av- 88 SR -2×100/ 7×50
    LD Chandimal- 25 – 906 – 39.39 Av- 71 SR – 2×100/ 7×50
    DM de Silva – 8 – 272 – 38.85 Av- 84 SR – 3×50
    N Dickwella – 34 – 1172 – 34.47 Av- 90 SR – 2×100 / 6×50
    Thirimanne -10 – 334 – 33.40 Av -65 SR – 4×50
    Gunathilaka- 28 – 855 – 31.66 Av -84 SR – 1×100 /6 x 50
    MDKJ Perera – 23 – 675 – 30.68 Av -94 SR – 1×100 /3 x 50
    BKG Mendis – 46 – 1315 – 29.88 Av -85.27 – 1×100 /11 x 50

    Pl DON’T MAKE Lopsided remarks like this.. just because you have no vision. This guy UT’s Odi record since 2016 is par with world class standard top order batters in odis. Don’t blame him for the sins of others who couldn’t even survive long enough to avoid him getting stranded at the end in at least 5 innings (one is a SL record for carrying the bat throughout the inning as Opener)or make use of those upfront blistering contributions to top 300 as seen in SA.

    Stormy – To win matches or top 300 runs, What they should have done much earlier was SHEDDING the dead weights (Selectors’/Coach’s bunnies) like Kusal Mendis, Thirimanne & even Chandimal (in SA 3 ings – 62 runs @ 20 Av – 53 SR.!!! / Vs Pk 5 ings – 41 runs @ 8 Av – 47 SR.!!! -/ ICC-CT – 2 ing – 12 runs @ 6 Av – 52 SR.!!!)

  7. Fight4right,you are always
    Fight4right,you are always right as per your name. ut is the man who is going to bring the cup for us. We are talking about a batting genius who’s capabilities are only known to few including you, mdk julius and me. Don’t care about what others say. ut is the best forget the rest. Jaya Apitai

  8. Fight4right, you are always
    Fight4right, you are always right. I can’t believe we both think alike. ut is the best player we have. He is an amazing player and only few of us know his value. Including you , mdk Julius and me. I believe he should be the captain. ut is the best forget the rest. Jaya Apitai.

  9. How funny…. those pseudos
    How funny…. those pseudos of CricexPORT at it again LoL. All this fool could do is Trying to hide his shame with lame statements. These inappropriate attempts would only highlight his desperation & inability to disprove any of my comments. This is clear to anyone following the thread.
