  1. I see Chandimal is new Tharanga! Why are we picking him? He was dropped a while back and he went crying and scoring ton of runs for the Army team and got a recall for the WC. Once at international level he has flopped and when was the last time he did anything meaningful in white ball cricket. He is not the first choice keeper and keeps a youngster out and the years go by….lets move on please and pick a youngster who may be a matchwinner in the future.

    Not convinced by Vandesay either although they do day leggies blossom late but this guy too has been around a while and done little and we have a leggie now. Don’t think we are the stage of playing two leggies in the same team.
