Shanaka, Asela out of world cup contention, Oshada, Udana, Vandersay has a strong case

Sri Lanka Cricket’s Chief Selector Asantha De Mel optimistically believes that the upcoming SLC Provincial Limited Overs Tournament will fill up the remaining vacant spots in the Sri Lanka World Cup squad. “Despite our poor performances in the limited-overs leg in South Africa, we have already decided upon 10-11 players, who will make the final …

  1. But I watched the super provincial cricket tournament vedio

    That ravin wickramasingge is saying all tracks played will be good batting tracks

    So I’m now pretty sure that the tournament will be in braised and fair

  2. And coach chandika is ryt

    We have to prepare in dambulla

    And slc and selectors are very correct we have to find bowers who can take wickets in flat batting wickets which will appear in the world cup

  3. My updated squad for the World Cup

    Danushka, dinesh, kusal, mendis, Angie, thisara, sachithra, isuru, Jeffry, lakmal, chameera

    Subs

    Dananjaya de Silva, Akila Dananjaya, Kasun Rajitha, Vishwa Fernando

    Reserve

    Nuwan Pradeep
    Dickwella
    Dimuth or Oshada
    Lakshan sandakan or amila aponso

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. 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.
