  1. Not sure what form of cricket but if Arjuna is not captain would you pick up as a pure batsman ahead of say Hashan Thilekeratne or even Thilan Samaraweera? Also, would you say Kalu is the best wicket keeper we have had, especially is not opening the batting? Some would argue Prasana Jayawardena was a better keeper.
