Team for 2015 world cup: part VI

In the final part, let’s find the suitable playing XI for one day and T20 format.

If you want to be successful for ever, you should be aware of the right options at the right time for everything.

So, now the time has finally come for the grand finale of the series “team for world cup 2015”. If you want to be remaining successful for ever, wise decisions at the right time are must. So, it is right time for SLC to look ahead. Just after word cup 2011, England management followed the theory of three captains for three formats. West Indies board sacked great Chris Gayle and Indians gave a opportunity to suresh raina to showcase his leadership skills during just concluded one day series against west Indies. So, obviously it is time to move ahead for any cricket playing nation.
I found dozens of young and talented players from sri lanka domestic circle in my previous five articles. The players are:

Batsman: Dinesh chandimal, dimuth karunratne, lahiru thirimane, bhanuka rajapaksha,

All-rounder: angelo perera, sachith pathirana, chathura peries, sehan jayasuriya.

Bowlers: sachitra senanayke, nuwan pradeep, suranga lakmal,

They all are quality players, no doubt about it. Plus, lanka team already have some world class player like- kumar sangakkara, mahela jayaweredne, tilakratne dilshan, who can easily play 2015 world cup. lankan team Also has some young players, like- angelo mathews, chamara kapugedera, thisara perera, suraj randiv, who already made their mark in international arena.

It’s quite an exiting face for sri lanka cricket, where it has players for all purpose- world class greats, stars of future and dozens of young stars, who are waiting for their turn.

And that’s when, management skills of selectors and board come in to consideration. Pakistan has the biggest pool of talented players, but because of poor management everything goes wrong. So, without any kind of delay, SLC and selectors should adopt a wise thought of policy.

So, here is the possible one day and twenty-20 teams for future assignments, including prestigious world cup 2015 –

Team for one day internationals in next 4 years

1. bhanuka rajapaksha
2. upul tharanga/dimuth karunaratne/lahiru thirimane

Team for twenty-20 internationals in next 4 years

1. bhanuka rajapakshe
2. sehan jayasuriya
3. dinesh chandimal
4. tilakratne dilshan
5. mahela jayaweredne
6. angelo mathews (capt)
7. thisara perera?chamara kapugedera
8. angelo perera/ chathura peries/ sachithra pathirana/ sehan jayasuriya
9. suraj randeev
10. nuwan pradeep/ suranga lakmal
11. lasith malinga

As always, like any other picking of suitable XI, many cricket lovers can easily disagree with these combinations. Yaa, lanka cricket also have some more exiting players like Dilshan Munaweera and Ramith Rambukwella, as well. Both they are dasher, suitable for twety-20 cricket especially. And we can’t forget chamara kapugedera as well. Though, he hasn’t shown true talent yet, but he is a player to watch for sure.

So, there is no dearth of talent. All, SLC need, is a simple plan and execution, to use all these great talent of a small island- srilanka.
