‘අවුරුදු 10ක් බලන් හිටියා මම මේ අවස්ථාව ලැබෙනකන්’ – භානුක රාජපක්ෂ by Susantha Jayawardena October 7, 2019, 5:35 PM 316 Views 2 Comments Bhanuka RajapaksaSri Lanka in Pakistan 2019ශ්රී ලංකා ක්රිකට් 2 Comments Leave a comment Well done Bhanuka I am so happy for you that at last you got an opportunity to play for SL where you and Dasun Shanaka were getting a raw deal from our stupid selectors due to “some reason” which I do not want to disclose here. In fact in my squad for the World Cup both Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Dasun Shanaka together with our new hero Vanidu Hasaranga were proposed by me, as all three of them have super qualities in the white ball games. All three of them were inform Power Hitting Middle Order Batsmen (plus Vanidu & Dasun) even prior to the WC but they were not considered for the squad. If we had these three players playing for the WC we would have definitely fared better and played in the knock out stage. Log in to Reply This word is also for our stupid selectors. Were you all closing your eyes and acting blindly when you picked a non performing no 3 (Top Order) batsman like Lahiru Thirimanna who does not have any aggressive approach for ODI matches as any of the other no 3 players around the world while totally neglecting a Super Quality Top Order batsman like Bhanuka Rajapaksa and helping to bring utter disgrace to Sri Lanka due to the poor performance during the WC. Similarly for selecting another non performing leg spinners Jeewan Mendis & Vandersaay in place of the fantastic leg spinner Vanidu De Silva.
