    nice work

  • Gamlath

    It’s crazy to send Kappugedara when an all rounder is injured , this is all politics, I wonder how this kapugedera is going to make a difference in teams performence. No other name that comes into their heads other than Kapugedara? This entire panel of selectors needs to be sacked again for the sake of our cricket. Disgusting

  • Eranga

    Please don’t do this. get bhanuka rajapaksha to the team.

  • PremasiriS

    Could somebody explain me the reason why Kapugedara is so valuable to the Selectors?
    Under mention statistics of Current Premier Div. League tournament gives an idea of who the batsmen in form ,at represent are and where the selectors’ babe stands in that list.
