WHAT IS THE USE OF PLAYING 6 IMPORTANT ODI & T20 MATCHES, PRIOR TO THE T20 WC WITHOUT OUR REGULAR PLAYERS

This is not wise decision taken by SLC to tour Pakistan prior to consulting the players. In reality we will be sending two weak B teams i.e (1) for ODI matches without 10 of the regular players (not considering Thisara & Chandimal who are not regulars) and (2) for T 20 matches without 4 regular players.

(1) Definitely PK will win the two series which will demote our ICC World Ranking status and it will also have an impact on our status, prior to the next years T20 WC.

(2) The four regular players (in T20 team) will loose some great opportunity of playing against a strong PK team in 6 matches (3 ODI & 3 T20) which will be a negative aspect when considering the valuable experience they are going to loose before the WC.

(3) SLC’s aim at this moment should have been to play every T 20 player earmarked for the next year’s WC and play these two tournaments or at least the T20 series at a neutral venue (in UAE).

  1. Yeah Dear Susantha absolutely crazy tour just to please some other country on incorrect environment.
    if SLC were headed by honest people likes of Rienzi Wijethilake, Sidath Wettumuny etc we can sure may be it’s a absolutely honest ,diplomatic, to lift spirit of the game in that precarious situations that Country going thru.
    But current SLC is run by MONEY CRAZY goons, was it a lucrative trip for SLC so called officials, did they come back with HEAVY POCKETS ur damn guess is good as mine, no point Susantha speaking further sending second string will damege further our rankings, moral and states of Countries PRIDE but for SLC GOONS it’s not a concern it’s MONEY PLUS POLITICAL DECISION mark my saying, i just don’t make crazy baseless criticism, let’s pray to God to Bless Harin Fernando in his efforts to CLEAN CRICKET in Sri Lanka against all odds
