‘Very good headaches for Sri Lanka Cricket selectors’ by Susantha Jayawardena October 10, 2019, 7:43 AM 77 Views 1 Comment Russel ArnoldSri Lanka in Pakistan 2019 One Comment Leave a comment Not long ago there were few from this site saying that Srilanka Cricket talent is barren and we don’t have talented pool of young players. The same guys said that Marven the marvelous is the best coach to coach for Srilanka only to backflip when we were getting hammered while Marvelous Marvan was in charge. It’s proven that Marvan can’t coach as he is no longer a involved in coaching. Having said we do have a good headache of having players who have shown the world what they are capable of. Dhanushka Gunatilake, Bhanuka Rajapaksha, Oshada Fernando, Kasun Rajitha, Shehan Jayasuriya , Minod Bhanuka have shown us that they are not going to be pushed over when the seniors return. I think only Kusal Perera and Angelo Mathews can come straight in to the T20 side. With the emergence of Minod Bhanuka on this tour while Sadeera Samarawickrama, Sandun Weerakody, Lahiru Udara, and Lahiru Milantha who had a good provincial tournament not long ago, we do have a talented bunch of wicket keepers who can seriously bat. I think Niroshan Dickwella is not guaranteed of a place in the side. Moreover he reminds me of a joker than a professional cricketer who usually likes to cajole the captain in persuading him to go for a DRS when its not worth reviewing. While we saw how good Minod Bhanuka was. This is my point, we need players who understand thier own role in the team and play thier role in the team and not showponys ike Niroshan or one trick pony like Thissara..I am not saying that we should never forget what they are capable of..but as far as the consistency its few and far between. Until they prove themselves again with performances they should not be considered for selection. We can’t have players who are just one hit wonders what we need players who are consistent.
