OH!! SRILANKA CRICKET

Progress has been our most important product.we an island nation south of India in the Indian Ocean. Its diverse landscapes range from rainforest and arid plains to highlands and sandy beaches. Pepople here are subdued yet aggressive but by no means arrogant. The game which really bound us together is cricket and our fascinating way of playing it. 1996 a year of glory Sri Lanka Cricket emerges out of nowhere and win the World Cup and since then it has been rollercoaster ride though it had some jerky moments but none like this a tumbling stairs down moment by moment especially in limited overs cricket.

"We have the talent but at the moment a lot of senior players are retired. The younger players are not performing well. Too many are playing and every time the team is changed – MURALI

We have tried 25 different players since 2014 in ODI, I mean seriously 2 teams in three years and yet we demand for more young talents. If they were (25 of them) given opportunity they must had talent, we failed to groom them or they were exposed much earlier and dropped after some bad performance something like what recently happened with Kusal Mendis and I see it forthcoming for Sadeera.

I pray to be proven wrong or some of the positives will be again destroyed, Where as in some players who we invested too much like Lahiru Thrimane gave nothing and again he is on the verge of being dropped, Not only selectors are to be blamed some of the players too like him who got chance again and again but the pain of being out of runs did not seemed in the eyes. Maybe, I am being too harsh on him but this seems with many others also and one of them is our new Captain, can any One of you feel sense in sacking of Tharanga and appointing Thishara as captain well I don't. The position in which Srilanka Cricket find itself has none to blame.
