    • God!!! Finally found the line up I was also wishing for. This is the best line up Sri Lanka could have at the moment. Most importatntly this line has a genuine batter at no.6

    • And the inclusion of Jeevan Mendis is also a must

  • “Karunaratne’s appointment was ratified by the Minister of Telecommunications, Foreign Employment and Sports Honorable Harin Fernando,” Sri Lanka Cricket confirmed through a media release.

  • The Nondescripts Cricket Club reports that opening batsman Dimuth Karunaratne has been named as the Captain of the Sri Lankan national – Get the latest breaking news and top stories from Sri Lanka, the latest […]

    • This should be the team in batting order.
      1. Dimuth Karunaratne (Capt)
      2. Lahiru Thirimanna (V. Capt)
      3 Kusal Perera
      4. Kusal Mendis
      5.Angelo Mathews
      6.Hasaranga De Silva
      7.Isuru Udana
      8.Jeevan Mendis
      9.Chamika Karunaratne
      10.Suranga Lakmal
      11. Lasith Malinga

      Reserves
      12. Dhananjaya De Silva
      13.Dushmantha Chameera
      14. Lahiru Madushanka
      15.Jeffrey Vandersay

      Dimuth and Thirimanna will give a solid opening partnership. But they are not quick scorers, Most promising explosive batters are Hasaranga and Madushanka. Malinga confirms this.We don’t need Thisara.He is a below par bowler and a very inconsistent batsman. Chamika is a good fast bowler and a fine batsman.Apart from Malinga all others can score. We need a 350 plus score in every match.
      Chandimal and Tharanga should be asked to retire from international cricket.

    • 1. Dimuth Karunaratne (Capt)
      2. Lahiru Thirimanna
      3 Dananjaya de silva
      4. Bhanuka rajapakse
      5.Angelo mathews
      6.kusal perera(wk)
      7.jeevan mendis
      8.isuru udana
      9. Kasun rajitha
      10.Suranga Lakmal
      11. Lasith Malinga

      Reserves
      12. Thisara perera
      13.dinesh chandimal/ kusal mendis
      14. Chamika karunarathne
      15.sachithra senanayake

      If kusal perera is not fit for the wc Chandimal should be instead of him. Sachithra will play a great roll in England pitches. Bhanuka performs well in super 4 than thisara. Hoping a good selection from the slc board. Good luck.

  • Also probably underestimating Sri lanka is a good thing. No one expected Sri Lanka to win a test in South Africa but we all know what happened after that. We all should back our team no matter what. If we play better than we used to play recent past, with some luck we can still make into the semis.

    • Does this mean that he will withdraw from the team if he is not appointed as captain for the WC ? If there is any truth in it I think he is going in the wrong direction. I saw in another article that he has criticized the other 3 captains Dimuth, Mathews Chandimal stating that none of them are suitable for the captaincy as he is. How can he make such a stupid statement like that. We all know that Mathews is the best captain we have from the current lot of players. He has proved it by his performances. Not playing due to injuries cannot degrade his ability in captaining the team.

      Even in Dimuth’s case Malinga is so wrong to say that he is not an option for the captaincy as he does not have sufficient previous ODI experiences. Its true that he last played in an ODI match in 2015. But during the recent past he has improved his performance in other ODI matches (List A) tremendously. In the last 7 List A matches (including Super Provincial 4 matches) he scored 309 runs at an average of 61.8 and a SR of well over 85%. If you look at his List A records during the recent past it is very clear tat he has improved his game with respect to the tough batting requirements like high batting av and high SR in the present ODI format.. I think to get the credit from all cricket fans for his good bowling performances he must concentrate on his game as a bowler and just forget about the captaincy. Even the selectors said that he was appointed only for the SA tour. My personal view is that I will give him only the third rating out of the 3 captains I mentioned. We lost all ODI matches played in SA and NZ under his captaincy.

      Besides, we should not forget that poor batting is the main problem with our ODI team. So me need to have a Batting Captain and not as Bowling Captain like Malinga. If he captains, can he give any help or guidance or advise to our batsmen during playing. So Malinga please don’t make any demand for the captaincy. We respect your bowling quality. You will get our full credit for it.

  • Hope someone gets a snapshot of this post. I think this is absurd. Of course, Sri Lanka is in complete disarray but for me, Sri Lanka is still at 6th position. Bangladesh, Afganistan hasn’t much experience in English condition where Sri Lanka has lots of those in recent past. Also, we played without the main players and was an experimental side.

      That asela and dasun is missing so I might have to update the line up

    • Guys we are all srilankans and love our cricket that’s are passion ❤️ In mother Lanka

      Okie I agree that Lasith Malinga captaincy was not supported by senior players and also junior players didn’t perform well

      My points are

      1. Asantha De Mel did a great thing by putting youngsters in test correctly but got carried away and he put too much youngsters in Odis without letting anyone settle

      Just to c who is good without any plan

      2. This last South Africa one day matches proved a point

      That is just check the Ireland a team xi matches before the South Africa series Upul Tharanga and Avishka Fernando scores bulk of runs

      Week bowling attack and flat tracks in srilanka

      All these bloggers start writing articles about Tharanga saying the best batsman in the country and all lies just to get Tharanga in the team

      Then suddenly every match 100 scoring Tharanga comes to South Africa with Avishka Fernando

      Aney paw both are struggling like kids to play against pace

      Actually for Kusal Mendis in that ODIs series against South Africa impressed me a lot

      Soo we’re is Tharanga quality now in south africa

    • Can someone here please remind me of a match that we won after Lasith Malinga played after returning to the team

      Just watch South Africa vs srilanka home series here in srilanka look at the team spirit of the players

      And c how good lakmal and Thisara perera is bowling

      Soon as with the change in management Lasith Malinga takes rule of cricket

      He gets into the Asia cup squad pick few wickets and hero status back

      Firstly he is the one who creates mishaps within each players in the dressing room

      අපි සින්හලෙන් කිව්වොත් “කොටවන්නේ”

      First thing he did was got Angelo out of the team
      Because he lost captaincy to angelo after winning the 2014 t20 world cup

      Lasith Malinga doea not like both Dinesh Chandimal and angelo mathews

      Angelo became the captain of 2015 wotld cup with everyones liking

      Then u can c throuhhout history that lasith malingas performance for the country was not in priority his priority is ipl and bpl and so on

      Never comes fully fit to the team when chandi and angelo are capataining

      Senior players knew rhis thats y they advised selection committee to keep malinga out

      Malingas behaviuor is clearly seen in asia cup t20 2016 , t20 World Cup 2016 and champions rrophy 2017 both chandi and angelo was captaiming and how did malinga perform was injured playing for ipl or came with a fat belly

      What lasith did firtst aftrr rrturning to the asia cup squad was to take out angelo of the team and captaincy

      Although for sure chandi and angelo are great friends

      By giving praise to chandimal because Angelo had a injury and in the Asia cup we saw his poor running which Angelo what ever said should admit.

      Angelo had to resign because malinga tempted both coach and selectors to get him out

      Chandimal came to captaincy lasith knew chandi was not in great form so he knew srilamka would lose the series to england

      Then just before the New Zealand tour chandimal is out of captaincy of odi and suddenly ahhh malinga is the captain of odi cricket in srilamka.

      Ahhhhh now the players inside the dressing room know whoos the traitor of the
      Team

      Who wanted only captaincy but no team spirit

      The only one who was capable of captaining the country left in the team was Thisara perera

      Malinga used his wife to stab thisara in social media pulling him down but didnt thisara reply with a slap in malingas face

      Tjisara for me has balls and gutts to withstand all these he wrote a letter to get this lasith coward out of the team

      You c there is no team spirit in the team when lasith is captaining

      I saw some purposeful misfields by lasith malinga on the field for the bowling of kasun rajitha

      And I saw kusal janith seing that next ball kusal dived and got his hamstring

      But I think kusal swing that misfields from.malinga
      And knew didn’t want to play under the shit captain and returned home

      Sooo guys let God decide on the captain on performance but I pray may it not be malinga for the sake of the country such a coward no.way

    • Have u ever seen earlier malinga returning from IPL earlier I think SLC did the right thing by releasing him for IPL

      Now malinga wants srilankan captaining and will return to play the domestic even for few matches and say his priority is to play for the country my ass

    • Angelo chandi dimuth even thisara

      All four great leaders to lead srilankan they will play for the country not for money or for captaincy

      May the best captain lead and with all blessings of the whole nation

      Chandi Angelo hathu de Mel and SLC will all unite as a fimily and win the world cup thank you

    • How come niroshan dickwella becomes vice captain tell me

      Kusal janith Pereira warrior isn’t he can even dickwella get close to him

      I mean suranga lakmal what a player senior players

      Decent personality

      Malli Ayya malli Ayya chubarai – dickwella

    • The people at SLC are bunch of idiots. Just like a month ago they said the performances of players in the provincial tournament will be the only deciding factor on whether they will have a place in the team or not. I understand someone like Mathews is already picked but no one else should have been straight away picked. Instead these idiots already picked most of the bloody team before the tournament has even started. And apparently they are spending 63million rupees for this tournament. Thats now 63million rupees spent on just deciding 4 more stupid players. Sad to hear that Gunaratne and Shanaka are out. Those are 2 players I would have put in my XI because of their good performances in England.

    • It’s a huge win by SLC and well done to the admin team. The question is will they send the full strength team? Regardless it’s an opportunity to play against the top dog which is what you want. After the recent thrashings I thought we would not get a full series for a while.

    • Yeah I think a good achievement by slc this instance

    • Guys what you think
