I (any real cricket fan doesnt ) dont know how he survived this long in international cricket without any special talent. Im sure cricketing nations like India, South Africa, Australia are laughing watching a lame player like Tharanga playing in a national XI. Had not been a match winner at any cost. Never can take the team over the line by his own and he never had. Even his highest ODI score (174 against India) was in a losing cause. His selection in the team has been ruining Sri Lankan cricket for many years and has closed ways for many young talents like Dilshan Munaweera, Danushka Gunathilake. Clearly a poor player on off side and against pace & bounce, poor fielder and gonna be a joke to the world if he is selected in the coming world cup squad.
