  1. First Shanka should show he deserves a place in the ODI team. He has failed miserably in the ODIs so far as indicated by selectors, first the captain should show he is in the team just not for captaincy. If Shanaka is there only as a captain then deposing Dimuth is entirely wrong.Shanaka has had two average knocks in England but not for a winning cause. This is the series he should show his mettle otherwise he should be disposed of soon because Kusal did a good job in England as Mickey said.

  2. The real reason to appoint Shanaka does not seem to be a cricket point of view but for the fact Kusal with some other players were strict on the contract issue whereas Shanaka has signed it soon.Because the day before the new appointment Mickey Arthur gave a glowing tribute to Kusal as a captain.Therefore appointing Shanaka is a political issue because selectors had already told earlier Shanaka should show first he deserves a place in the ODI team. Then now also the issue of whether he has enough support in the team. The selectors should really reassess all these after the Indian series.
