  • Premasiri

    PLEASE IGNORE MY PREVIOUS COMMENT
    The Selectors should have focused on the future of Cricket here in the Country rather than the interests of individual aging club cricketers. The performances of some players (who have been selected here) in the Domestic tournaments in the recent past have been below average. For benefit of all I have attached here the 1st Class Career statistics ( curtsey CricInfo) of one such player, who has been selected as an all-rounder. Incidentally he once toured Australia as an opening batsman with the National Team.
    We may have to seek services of foreigners as selectors as it happens in Bangladesh, since these selectors too have come from the same Players Association, if not the prospective young talented cricketers would have lost his interest of the Game before long.

    • denisha

      who are you refering to and who is this karunaratne?

    • dulip

      who is this karunarathne ????? im a selector .. .. send me him bios … i’ll do some thing 4 u ..

      • nixyboy

        he’s umesh karunarathne .. ex-thurstan skipper .. u19 player for the world cup in 2008 … jz went through cricinfo cause i saw mr dulip’s comment asking who he is ..

  • umesh

    I hope T.M. sampath should play SA games because he batted well last provincial & mercantile tournament.And he already proof he got talented both bowling & batting in his recent performances.Specially he became Man of the of tournament in Mercantile cricket.And he can play this side as a WKT keeper too.I think selectors should keep their eye on sampath for give him a chance to perform in international level to develop another dilshan for Srilanka cricket.

  • shenal

    give chance to nuwan pradeep in 3rd test he’s very fast.he can do something in p.sara.give more overs to bowl mathews he need to prove real all rounder act in test cricket too.

  • i234

    jeevantha kulatunga ????? not in 50 over side…ohhhh wonder ?? jeevantha kulatunga should be in…… , subject to injustice player ……..

  • DANKAN

    ho… wat’s about shanuka dissanayake … was not picked for any squard ,,, another matter.. selecters should give a chance to jeevantha kulaunga to show his class… i think he is the best openner that we have after dilly.. so we hope mr aravinda give him a chance to play againts newzeland warm up matches for show his talent….

  • Chanaka

    Selectors should consider having Jeevantha Kulatunga in the side ,it’s useless to have players in the lineup when they’re out of form. Pls. give him one final chance to show his colours.

  • VAJIRA

    dear moderator………… please tell
    when will these asian games t20 matches be started

  • uream

    this is a good team selections..weldone .. but there is one fault…. jeevantha kulatunga have not been named for new zeland warmup matches …big fault…jeewantha should be played in that warm up 50 over matches…. bec jeevantha can be a good option …..

  • sachin

    aravinda had to give a chanse to jeevantha kulatunga to play 50 over warm up match against new zeland… bec kulatunga is a hitter and an all rounder selecters should give a chanse to indika saram and kulatunga to play t20 for srilanka also

  • navin

    weldone aravinda u come to right position jeewantha kulatunga , indika de saram , lokuhettige , udawatte, these all players are include ….. nebasan …. but i hope jeewantha kulatunga should be played for A side any way good selection…. goodluck all the guys…..
