i thin kulathunga was not gud enough .. he is not a such gud player …look at him he plays soft bowl style whe he hits he was lucky thats y he score runs very poor…. wat abt jeewan mendis well proformens … playing with his un thinkable tallent wat abt jeewan wat do u say DUMINDA .. jeewa well played
hey foolish man….kulatunga is the best… hey udawatte only got 2 , mahela 0 ,,, but kulatunga 59…. jeevan is not a openner.. this is the foolish comment that i ever seen….
ha ha i think this shano may be upul tharanga … or old man jayasuriya.ha ha lol.. hey kulatunga should be in wc squad…
i hope jeewantha kulatunga should be in the world cup squad…as an oppenner..also he can bat middle order…. wasim akram yesterday said..” if this player (kulatunga) plays like this it’s never too late to come international ” that’s the aspect of …others.. so aravinda jeewantha is the one of he subject to injusitce player due to asantha and sanga….. we saw how udawatte played yeasterday… he missed out only 2 and played not as an international crickter also tharanga inconsistent… so jeevantha kulatunga should be in the squad not only for t20 ….specially in 50 over format…
due to this wonderfull perfomence of kulatunga may be selecters confirm him for t20 match against australia… thats not enough jeevantha kulatunga should be in the worldcup squad….that’s mean he should be play oneday format ….. so please give him a chance to play against australia and west indi tour to show his class not as experiment… tharanga, kapugedara. samaraweera are not suitable for world cup squad ,,, jeevantha kulatunga, chandimal, and jeevan mendis should be include.. i mention one thing.. ARAVINDA DON’T CONFIRM SANGA’S IDEAS … BEC.. SANGA CONFIRM PLAYERS BASE ON HIS RELATIONSHIP OR FRIENDSHIP… THAT’S WHY .. CHANDIMAL, JEEWANTHA WERE INGORED LAST OCCATIONS… give jeevantha kulatunga a chance.. this is the correct time… bec we have only 8 oldies before wc 2011….
This is how cricinfo described Kulatunga heroics :
“Udawatte did the same to the third ball he faced but it fell short. He lobbed the next delivery, a short one, to midwicket, giving the Warriors a dream start. But Kulatunga was about to jolt them into action.
It started with a short and wide delivery from Lonwabo Tsotsobe. It was dealt with a powerful cut, with no effort to keep it down. Anything with a hint of width was going to be dealt with similarly.
After two such boundaries, Tsotsobe overpitched, and was lofted straight down the ground. When he tried to cramp Kulatunga up with a short ball into his body, the pull shot nearly went out of the ground.
Tsotsobe to Kulatunga: four balls, 18 runs, and Wayamba were 28 after 3.3 overs.
Kulatunga responded to the fall of his captain, Jehan Mubarak, with another counterattack, a six off Nicky Boje in the same over, taking Wayamba to 58 after nine overs. His solo received semblance of support from Kushal Perera, the left-hand wicketkeeper-batsman, who hit sweetly timed sixes in the 11th, 12th and 13th overs. Kulatunga responded with one in the 14th, taking Wayamba to 110, and a big score looked on the cards.”
what a wonderful player he is…. wasim akram said…but what the idea of aravinda…………and sanga
I wonder why Sri Lankan Cricket Board’s selectors still cannot understand that Jeewantha Kulatunga is a talented player who should play for Sri Lanka at the national level.
Mahela fails most of the times in crunch games.. and does very well most of the times when there is not much of pressure … give Jeewantha a chance…& leave grudges aside, if we are
to win the World Cup
Mahela should start slowly: a combination of few defense strokes and few singles is the best start for him. Then he can catch up with his wasted deliveries. He should not bat like Jayasoriya when he(Jayasoriya) was in his good old days (not now definetely). That was the mistake he did in this match
This non inclusion of talented players like Jeewantha Kulatunga,Chandimal & Jeewan Mendis in the national side..makes the public get fed up of watching Sri Lankan cricket are the Cricket administration trying to stop fans from watching cricket????
This fundamental stuff & any dumb person would select this guys to the national side… what sort of joke are selectors playing without including them.. it’s high time they include them starting from next tour..this is really unfair & I’m sure Sri lankan public is really disappointed about this situation…
wel said pubudu ….tharanga, samaraweera , kapugedara….when they are batting very boring to watch ,,,, that’s not a their problem.. it’s a sanga and aravinda’s problem….. when jeevantha kulatunga , chandimal, young kusal perera , jeevan mendis batting.. it’s very interesting to watch……jeevantha kulatunga, chandimal, jeevan mendis should be play world cup instead of thara, samare and kapuva or silva
why selecters always try to hide jeevantha kulatunga’s talent ..kulatunga teach how to build an inning without fear for tharanga, samaraweera , kapugedara ……… if selecters ingore kulatunga this time for upcomming australia tour not for t20 ….for onedayers …… i think it will be the … sad news ever…. this is my world cup side ……. dilshan , kulatunga, chandimal, mahela, sanga, matthews , silva, kulasekara, malinga , fernando, herath, randiv, murali , jeevan mendis, and a fast bowler
J kulatunga proves himself again…Wonder when he will become good enough for selectors …… SHOULD BE IN NATIONAL SIDE NOW…
Jeewanth Kulathunga shows his talent once again what short of a playaer he is.But Kumar Sangakkara afraid to give him a chance .Sorry Jeewantha , We always with ur side.keep ur good batting form. all the best.
but i think jeevantha will get another one or two half centuries or get a one century .. this time selecters and sanga cann’t ingore him.
kulatunga show his class again 59 alone….wat about tharanga, udawatte… see the talent of kulatunga.. kulatunga should be play in squard wc 2011 .tharanga not suit
