This is not a proper reason

Ashantha de Mel

“The door is not shut on Thisara. We have identified Danushka Gunathilaka and Avishka Fernando as openers. Dickwella is another option. If he can give us a good start getting a quick 40 he can put us in the game. We need to look at a spare batsman for the middle order. The problem with Bankua Rajapaksa and Oshada Fernando is that they are slow on the field and their fielding is not the best,” De Mel noted.

Then Rohit sharma also should not be in the india team  And even Thisara Perera one of the slowest in the field

  1. Correct. Asantha doesn’t want Bhanuka in the team for some “reason”. He is not identifying the great value of this hard & power hitting, no 3 batsman who has even been recognized by many T 20 Franchisers around the world. I do not agree at all for dropping Bhanuka for the recent T20 matches (even dropping him in Australia). If it comes to a point of selecting the best option for T20 between Oshada & Bhanuka, it should be Bhanuka. But Asantha does not realize this and SL Cricket is suffering a lot due to the mismanagement policies of Asantha.

    I think it’s high time to remove Asantha from holding the Chief Selector and Team Manager positions.
