Sri Lanka’s kit for ICC World Test Championship matches by Susantha Jayawardena August 13, 2019, 7:52 AM 1.4k Views 1 Comment ICC World Test ChampionshipNew Zealand in Sri Lanka 2019 One Comment Leave a comment We badly need a group of proper cricketing administrators and few qualified intelligent selectors if we want to do well in the International scene. We have no hope for the future with this kind of armature officials that do not know the importance of having DOMESTIC Cricket tournaments in a Country. Just to reduce his CONTRACT FEE, SLan administrators try to prove here that CHANDIMAL is not a very important member any longer. If the administrators of India were in the same mentality of present SLans, they could have easily dropped all the highly paid Cricketers such as Kholi, Dhoni and Co, and make a World-beating young Team with their vastly talented, well-groomed young Cricketers. Luckily they don’t have idiots in their administration, because they know better, the deserving players should be treated and well respected for what they have already given for the country at difficult times. That is why we also badly need a proper gentlemanly Cricketers in administration. We don’t need idiots as selectors either who criticizes their own players after picking them for a tour. Skillwise there is no one in this Squad to match the number of match-saving fighting innings that Chandimal has played for the Country, [ it was not like playing 200s,300s on flat tracks as in the case of 2 legends ], though not given due respect for his such performances, starting from his debut matches [last was his unbeaten 119 in WI in June 2018 ]. His performances both ODI & Test had been exceptional, under the interim committee of SidathWettimuny [ a true gentleman Cricketer ] where Chandimal didn’t receive any pressure from the top. How could Thirimanna [after 64 Test Inns his Test Ba Av 23,] find a place in this squad and the WC squad for that matter, whereas two other highly talented players such as RoshenS,AselaG were completely ignored.
