  • News

    Now time is right for Dimuth Karunaratne to be part of Sri Lanka national squad not A team. Otherwise what happened to Ian Daniel, Jeevantha Kulatunga, Mario Villavarayan and Saj Fernando will happen to this talent too.

  • hiter

    Kapu is a very talented player..those who criticize him are people who don’t have any proper knowledge about cricket..You will see his value in the T20 world cup..he deserves to be in the sri lanka squad than this A squad…

  • ravindu

    i think good side.i like to chamara kapugedara give chance.next t20 world cup need to capu

  • Dilanka

    Really true Mr. Chandrasiri.i’m a really good fan of the game Cricket and i follow the domestic and the international matches alot.Dilshan Munaweera, Mahela Udawaththa, Ashen Silva(test) are beyond the openers who have been selected to go on the tour.questions must be asked against the selectors,A team coach Romesh Kaluwitharana.
    considering players like Kusal ,Dimuth ,Banuka have got fair chances,i have no complains about it.but at the age of 20 dilshan was the provinciol best batsmen and only got one A team game,against Australia. following mahela udawaththe was the premier one day best batsman,
    But just 20, 3o runs of deference made them out of the squad.Anyway Young bloods like dilshan, mahela Ashen.dont give up,beacuse we are always behind you.and those who are doing these kind of this will get the treat from god as Chandrasiri said.
    Thank you…

  • Selector

    no regular opener in the side ashen silva who had a good seaosn scoring 900 odd runs not picked for the test matches and sohan boralessa who has been performing regularly not getting a chance to show.

    what suprises is to notice the different set of names selected when comparing with the ealrier selection of the 17 players picked for the tours.

    • ravindu

  • chandrasiri

    I dont know what kind of selection is this??? Where’s Dilshan Munaweera, and Mahela Udawaththe.. no regular openers in the side. really sad about whats happening for our cricket,it was like our religion.but involvement of politics has destroyed this religion.We believe in you god.you are the only hope for the guys like Dilshan and Udawaththe.
