‘Oshada reminded me of Mahela’ – Sri Lanka chief selector de Mel

The performances of Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Oshada Fernando, whose strokeplay made de Mel think of Mahela Jayawardene, and Wanindu Hasaranga, have now given the selectors plenty of food for thought, not just for upcoming series but also next year’s T20 World Cup.

  1. Yes Oshada certainly does remind us all of Mahela and not sure where De Mel was but this boy was sensational in SA on his debut series against a very strong pace bowling unit and what did the selectors do – drop him! What’s worse we selected a cow like Thirimane who has been fiddling around for years and doing nothing. Here comes a genuine talent with a decent technique and we drop him – talk about rocks in the head!
