How to Reboot Sri Lanka Cricket ODI Systems to the Winning Way

Reboot to the Best XI and Stay with this XI for at least a series or two and you are Guaranteed to see results-
1. Danushka Gunathilaka(All-Rounder)
2. Niroshan Dickwella(W)(Batsman)
3. Kusal Mendis(Batsman)
4. Upul Tharanga(Batsman)(Captain)
5. Angelo Mathews(All-Rounder)/Dasun Shanaka(All-Rounder)(If Angelo is Injured at the time)
6. Kusal Perera(Batsman)
7. Asela Gunaratne(All-Rounder)
8. Jeffrey Vandersay(Right-Arm Leg-Spin)
9. Akila Dananjaya (Right-Arm Off/Leg-Spin)
10.Vishwa Fernando (Left-Arm Fast-Medium)(140Km/h +)
11.Lahiru Gamage (Right-Arm Medium-Fast)

Stick with the Top 7 Batsman who Won the Match Against India in England in the Champions Trophy and Stick with the Newly Crafted Attacking Bowling Line up.

Reboot the Supporting Staff to-
On Tour Selector:  [Sri Lanka]  Sanath Jayasuriya
Head Coach:  [Sri Lanka]  Chandika Hathurusingha 
Batting Coach:  [Sri Lanka]  Mahela Jayawaredene
Fielding Coach:  [Sri Lanka]] Tillakaratne Dilshan
Fast Bowling Coach:  [Sri Lanka]  Rumesh Ratnayake
Spin Bowling Coach:  [Sri Lanka]  Piyal Wijetunge
Strength & Conditioning Coach:  [England]  Nick Lee

Despite several foreign coaches being paid the big money, they have failed to deliver the goods for Sri Lanka Cricket in the recent past.So Sri Lanka Cricket should turn back to its local Cricket Superstars as they can have better communication with players and have had experience playing in every condition in the World.  

Sri Lanka cricket stated that they will announce the Head Coach in December and if this is the Team Management and Supporting Staff then Sri Lanka can rise from the Dead and will become among the Top-Ranked Teams in the World. As the current Team Mangement is Very Poor and is destroying Raw World Class Talented players mainly due to Asanka Gurusinha.

My personal opinion is Kick Asanka Gurusinha out and get rid of the Cricket Manager post. Bring Back Sanath Jayasuriya as the on tour Selector as I think he was a good selector probably one of the best in the world as the team he selected Won the T20 world cup, Reached the Quater-finals of World cup 2015 and Won many historical tours such as against England, Australia and many more. But I think it was  Asanka Gurusinha team management that was the reason for the failure of the past Selection committee. And now  Asanka Gurusinha is doing it again.


Both  Chandika Hathurusingha and  Mahela Jayawaredene want to give back something to there country and it`s cricket so the Sri Lanka Cricket Committee needs to stop spending money on useless Stuff and hire this two Legends to Save Our Cricket.
