  1. Let’s stop pointing fingers and support the decision taken by the selection committee. yes players like chandimal, akila and dikwalla have been dropped we need to face the facts they may be good players but if they are not in form which we have seen over and over again.

    Let’s rally behind the team which has been named for the world sup and give are support. That is what is most impotent. As fans we need to support are players which is munch needed because mentally it is a big help when they are prepping for the upcoming tournament.

  2. Why don’t you make a police complaint ?? without that dn’t throw stones , if you are inside the Glass houses 😂😂 if you can reveal your name Cricket Fan ??? Since Dasun/ Asela unavailable he is the best choise for No 6 , seems you haven’t refer his recent performance in Last two domestic seasons 😂😂

  3. I guess this is another unprofessional act of social media who wants to condemn the team selection and this time they have selected the weakest link which is Milinda and not one from the other 7 batsmen. What a rubbish piece of news. As Sajeewa said the only other power hitting batting all rounder Dasun will not be fit for selection. So the other choice has to be Milinda. Anyway Hasaranga who is the third power hitting all rounder is also selected as a standby player. Although he is so talented and young lacks international exposure.
