    My suggestions for the current debacle>>
    Dilshan should resign as the cricket captain and should get back to the team as an opening batsman. Thilan Samaraweera should be a member of the Test side. Marvan Atapattu the batting coach should resign. The selection committee should be sacked. SLC should hold democratic elections and appoint members to SLC accordingly. Highly talented cricketers such as Dinesh Chandimal should be a permanent team member. I believe Chandimal likes to bat at number 3 so he should be given the opportunity to bat at number three and move Sangakkara (number 4 bat) and the rest of the batting order down. Upul Tharanga who bats like a Test batsman in ODIs should be Dilshan’s opening partner in Tests. The pathetic Thirimanna & Paranawithana who are club standard players that score runs slowly with very slow Run-Rate with no rhythm should be dropped from the Test team. Ajantha Mendis, where is he? Mendis should be the number one spinner of the side not, Rangana Herath. Lastly, Mahela or Sangakkara should be asked to captain the side once more. If either of those two don’t wants to captain the national team then appoint Anjelo Mathews. My question is if South Africa appointed Graeme Smith when he was 22 years with NO Test match experience why can’t Sri Lanka appoint Mathews to the captaincy. After all, the way Dilshan has captained the side it can’t go any worse right?
