    9.Lasith
    10.Suraj or Ajantha
    11.Murali

    (((((((((((((Malinga Bandara,Ajantha,Tissara,Kapugedara)))))))))

    Chandimal will be play in the team I think he must be good investment 4 our future.Sometime he will be the most valuable in tournament.People say Mahela bated will be opening bt I think he isn’t good 4 the fastbowler althogh he can be the best of spinners and our middleline will strong when he comes @ 5.My Dear SANA SO SORRY your aren’t in my team THILAN SAMARAWEERA on peak @ these days he can play @ 6 (LIKE HASHAN THILAKARATHNA ) . Vaas ,Kula ,Lasith must in the team.Murali is our legand no doubt bt, who is the other sppiner Ajantha or Suraj although against team have many left hand players Bandara will be good replace.

    wheather , pitches and ground support sooooooo we can rewright the future once again……..GOOD LUCK 4 THE TEAM & ARAVINDA….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1-Dilshan
    2-Mahela
    Mahela shold open. He has played lot of ODI’s at no 4 but not played justifiably to his tallent. But few matches he open he batted well with quick runs.Upul should not be in the team. He is batting slowly and also lucky in most times.
    3-Sanga
    4-Dinesh/Samara/Chamara Silva/Kanda
    But I like Dinesh. Because if Sanga want to bat at no 4 He can bat at no 3 unlike others.
    5-Angi
    6-Kapu
    He is a good batsman. He showed it in the T20 w.c agaist Ind. I also like Kapu bowling some overs if team need.
    7-Jeewa
    He can bat and also bowl legspins. Because Suraj and Dil both can bowl offspins it might be handy to take a leg spinner than Murali.
    8-Thisara
    9-Kula
    10-Suraj
    11-Mali
    extra guys should be
    Murali
    Maha-We can replace him with thisara or kula if they not performing well because he also a allrounder.
    A batsman that i mentioned at no 4
    and
    Nuwan pradeep/Dilhara/Suranga- who is performing better should get this position.

    comments????

  • Loku Duwa

    I don’t think there should be permanent places for Sangakkara & Mahela in the National ODI team just because they score runs heavily in home Test matches offering 101 chances in the process. They have let the Country down very badly in many ODI tournaments ever since they have joined the Team. Their ODI Batting Averages in their 1st 30-40 ODIs is were around 20 runs per innings, that itself shows that they are not good for ODIs even though they have always ask to bat at the most important batting positions of No3 & 4 . At least 3 quality batsmen should be able to maintain consistency throughout a tournament for that team to perform well in the tournament (i.e. in a tournament involving 7 matches, a good batsman should be able to get a considerable score of more than 50 runs). That is what Aravinda, Hashan, Mahaqnama & Arjuna did in 1996. Apart from 3 innings Sanath failed in all important matches in the 1996 WC. As for Kaluwitharana he could not go beyond 30 mark in any of those 6 innings though people were made to believe they were the main actors of 1996 WC. This kind of players can be any help to win a tournament is very remote. It is same with Mahela & Sangakkara, as we all know their performances as youth in 2003 WC was a complete flop. Even in recent past we have lost almost all ODI tournaments, if we had win any it was totally due to our bowlers and young batsmen. I would like to remind here we have lost as many as 6 home series, once to England,4 times to India & once to Pakistan. It was so pathetic to describe the performances of our senior batsmen (& other favorites of selectors) in Zimbabwe and triangular tournament in Bangladesh (involving Zimbbabwe as well) in 2009. It is very sad to note that same players who have taken part in this entire disastrous tournament are included in this 30 man squad in spite of their performances even in Domestic tournaments. As we all know every year 1 or 2 academically brilliant children get into the Universities scoring highest marks. The same manner one or two extremely talented children do come out from schools each year. It is the main duty of the knowledgeable selectors to pick them young like they do in other countries, Pakistan in particular, for the last Youth WC in NewZealnd, they have a selected young kid who was only 15 years at that time who became the 1st 3 best batsmen of that tournament, a thing our selectors of last 25 could not even think of. I strongly feel young players like Khausal Silva, Lahiru Thirimanne, Sachithra Senanayake, SPrasanna, Malinda Pushpakumara, Marlan Madusanka, Dimuth Karunarathne Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Perera, Umesh Karunarathna, Bhanuka Rajapaksha Chathura Peiris should be strong contenders for the coming WC. It is always better to entertain young rather than rotten aging players and other favorites of selectors. .

    Hey guys,,,, what is going oooon… Jaya is still in the 30 man squad ok… so be cool guys,,
    as per the news i heard the 2 veterents are practising very hard to take a place in the final 15.
    Vassi did well in England Friends Provident T20 (17 matches)

    Bowling ( Wkts23 best3/16 Avg15.82 Econ6.33)

    Jaya also did well in his matches same tour (9 matches)
    Batting ( Runs267 Best87 Avg 29.67 SR 158.92 2×50)
    Bawling (5 Wkts)

    So they did show some performance to come to the 30 member squad but remember what Aravinda said guys… We have to trust our selectors, players & evrything if we have to win this world cup thats what we need at the end the cup in Sanga’s hans. :-) We have to be together with all.
    Specially the final squad has to get together as 1 if not the wc will be a dream for us.

    so guys can we have some possitive comments as well for this 30 man squad..??

    if jaya show his blastering form again & vassi with his in swing & with the rvrswin who can stop them,,
    there are 30 members in this squad but why you are talking about 1 thing???
    cheers guys think for better things not only from the bad side of it…

    we can win this world cup,,,, dont worry guys,,,,

    hope for the best …

    14. Thilan Samaraweera (For no 03,04,05/Kandamby)
    15. Dilhara Fernando( Kulasekara)

    # If Upul come to side he will be opener n mahela going down No 4, sanga will go to no 3
    # If Jeewan mendis come to side randiv or murali will rested
    # If samaraweera – Kandamby will go out
    Samaraweera can use as a no 4 batsman when the time Upul Tharanga work as a
    opener
    # If Dilhara come Kulasekara or Vass have to go out of XI

    ** If selector wanna some kind of new thing we can use Vass as a NO 03 Batsman
    Because now everybody know he can bat as a opener if opener mark high run rate we can
    use Vass on No03 spot.
    **Other thing is in My XL – all batsman are scoring 50runs or plus without murali in ODI format
    But all of us know what the thing MURALI can do from his BAT( Is he use that as a bat or …)

    UNFORTUNATELY
    # In this team no space for the groom (Kapugedara) Selectors are given enough chance to him
    but he cant convert those chance for a his side
    # Chamara Silva He is a good batsman but he is not good enough for the WC team
    # Tisara Perera & Fervees Maharoof will c in next world cup with Lahiru Thirimanne
    # Rangana Herath & Ajantha Mendis – They will play for our test side without Suraj Randiv
    # Malinga Bandara & Thilan Thushara will be select as No16 & No17
    # Face Attack- Chanaka, Dhammika,& Suranga with Nuwan all of u have to do lot of Home Work
    # If Selectors are select Down south Tharanga there are no place for the Kandy road Tharanga

    # Then We have a MP what to do ?????????????????

    I think SL should open with Dil and Mahela. Upul is not a good player to play W.C.Sanga shoul come at no 3.
    This is the playing 11 with the position in order.
    Dil, Maiya,Sanga,Dinesh,Angi,Kapu,Jeewan,Thisara,Kula,Suraj,Mali
    extra 4 guys should be
    Murali,Maha,Silva,Nuwan Pradeep

    • ymadhawa

      I agree with you. but, I think sanga should drop down to no4 position. It’s better to have a top player in middle order. It will increase our players confidence. Dinesh Chandimal is a brilliant player. So he can bat @ no3 position. I think he’s good enough for that..

    • http://no chama

      When it come to the next WC , you know already which type of pitches you would get ,obviously subcontinent wickets are helping sppiners much so when it the team selection you have to include much spinners in to your squad of XV.BUT you have to analyse your opponent team well and make your final XI. So you havet to get the mix of players in to the final XV.96′ we had used 4 spinners and all of them delivered the goods for SL, Murali,dharmasena,sanath and aravinda. So if you want to make winning the next world cup you have to make strong bowling line up mainly base on spinners.so then we have great chance of adding a additional spiner when we play against the teams which strong against pace attacks such as WI,ausie,eng,so.afri

    MY Dream Team. -I am not an expert but strong fan of SL team. just wanted to share my view with others, specially selecting panel including sanga
    1. T.M Dilshan – should bowl 3-4 overs in between 20 -40th over
    2. Mahela Jayawardene -should play the Anchor role n have to bat atleast till 30th over.
    3.Dinesh Chandimal ( IF SLC had been given him the chance to play more ODI’s in last one and half years(at least 20 + ODIs), he is the Ideal man to play no.03 slot . But my worry is even though he is well talented , SLC had given him just only 3 odi s.So when it’s come to Big event like WC, experience is much counted.But still I beleived he is the ideal candidate for no.03, when sanga shifted to strengthen middile order.)
    4.Sanga – must take responsiblity of middle order and work the game towards big total or chase the total
    5.angie – should bowl 4-5 overs in bowling power plays
    6.chamara S /Chamara k (when the opponent attack is strong in fast bowling chamara k should play ) either one of chamara who is not playing in first XI he must be 12th man and must come to the field.
    7.Thisara p
    8.Lasith Malinga
    9.Suraj randiv / rangana h / ajantha m( you have more option in bowling , since you may iclude 2 bowlers out of 3 for playing XI and drop no.10 player, when opposition team strong against fast bowling attacks) ie. west indies/england/s.africa/australia
    10.nuwan k / dilhara f
    11.one n only murali.

    Its crazy cricket>? SANA almost 41 + still cricket. NOw he have some Eye ? also. How he will seen ball in correct time? wHAT IS THE JOKE? jEEWANTHA. BETTER THAN SANA.

    ONLY POLITICAL ?????????????????????????????????????????

    • Sanjaya

      Your argument is completely incorrect. If Sana came to SL WCup squad Why he didn’t select previos tours. Still he can plays in ODI rather Tharanga, Kapuwa, Chamara and Samaraweera.

      • subah

        kapu also useless player . but thranga. & sammaraweera dont equal to sana.

        why give to him chance??????????
        i cant agree with you?

        • Sanjaya Ekanayake

          Oya eththa katha karala thiyenawa. Thranga & Sammaraweera
          don’t equal to Sana… Mokada Sana is still better than those players.
          Do you know, Why Samaraweera (Sangakkara’s favorities) didn’t
          select to Australian tour? If he went to that tour they (selection
          committee) can’t include him to WC squad (because of poor
          performance). That’s true.
          why give to so many chances to Kapuwa, Tharanga, Chamara Silva,
          Samaraweera, Dilhara and Dhammika Prasad ??????????
          i cant agree with you?

    • Sanjaya Ekanayake

      Not only Matara persons also most of Sri Lankans know that Sana is still better than Tharanga, Chamara Silva, Kapuwa, Samaraweera

    • Sanjaya Ekanayake

      If you think SL can Win WC with Kapuwa and Samaraweera? Definetely you have a mental problem. Even SL to qualify semi final we must don’t give a chances like Kapuwa, Samaraweera, Thranga and Chamara Silva.

      Don’t worry now SL giving chance to only sanga’s combination (favorities)

      Well why don’t you tell about someone can replace him?

      • Rajitha

        I feel Kandaby will be the best option, if not train chandima( after the WC)
        Mahela avarage very low. last 20 match he is the wast batmen, LBW & slip catch. why we keep him long time jest for name of nalada/ or English knoladge

        • da game

          r you kiddn?? kandamby da best option..LOL noway! chandimal s waaay better than kanda..and ya agrees with mahelas thing..mahela is gttn worst day by day..

        • Sajitha

          Don’t make us laugh man.Kandaby is not a good player for ODIs.His fielding errors cost more runs than he scores.My personnel opinion is chandimal should be in team but he is not a alternation for Mahela.Bro. ask anybody who knows cricket ,to name the best 5 players in the team.Mahela will be in the answer.He is not a big hitter but definitely a match winner(hope you know what it means).Now tell me is it a co-incident that your both alternations are Anandians?

  • Rajitha

    My Team,
    1) Mahela
    2) TM Dilshan
    3) Mathews
    4) Sangakkara – Should go to number 4 to strength Midle Order
    5) Chamara Silwa
    6) Thilan Samaravera – Should be there – He is the only one who can play with presour
    7) Tisara perera
    8) Nuwan Kulasekara
    9) Malinga
    10) Mendis/ Suraj
    11) Murali – Top Spriner

    Special Note- IF JAYASURIYA GOING TO PLAY THE WC THIS WOLD CUP WILL NOT WIN BY SRI LANKA.

  • http://slc udara

    i think even now jayasuriya bats better than tharanga. so why not include him. better than including tharanga.for god sake give chandimal a chance. when you have got the talent why not use it.any way this the best chance we have got to win the world cup if we choose the correct squad.
    My wc team (final 11)
    dilshan
    mahela
    chandimal

    kula

    murali malinga

    • http://slc udara

      Reasoning for the squad

      Dilshan is the best opener in sri lanka right now so no problem about him. dilshan gives us the perfect run rate in the begining of the innings.But tharanga slows it down. and we finally finish on some thing about 250-280 although we had the ability to score more than 300.so right now mahela is the best batsman who can open and also not to let the run rate drop. Then we need a batsman with agression and perfect technique to keep it up with the run rate and build the innings. sanga is the best inclusion. but then our late middle order will be
      so poor. so can’t play sanga there neither samaraweera because he will drop the run rate. so right now chandimal looks the best option.although he is unexperienced he is so talented and worth a try. And then samaraweera will build the innings and can hold it togetther. then sanga @ 5 will solidify our late middle order and we have used the best batsman in the world right now to solve our biggest problem and why not? He will normally bat from 28 th over to 50 th. so there is no risk of getting balled out before 50 overs as long as sanga is there.(sanga should sacrifice his no 3 position at least for this wc for sake of the country) then mathews . He is wise enough to change his game according to the need of the hour. And kapu will provide us the much needed fire power in the end. Thisara looked a good option but he is shaky against good fast bowling and some times his technique looks so poor. right now kapu looks the best choice.

      I think there is no weakness in this batting line up.

      • http://lankahelp.com/ LankaHelp

        Sanga playing lower down the order is a waste. Sangakkara should play one down or two down.

    This is my selection for world cup 2011 and this is the most balance team to win it.
    We need to concern more about snipers rather than the facers. Because we need to get the home advantages.
    In subcontinent, Chaminda Vass is exceptional and he has expertized to do early bake through. Rangan Herath also should be in 15 man squid as leg sniper for the team.

        There is no variance from Randiv…..he may not a threat for INDIA or PAK…and also batting is not better than the Herath.

        If you want see…this is the team which is going to Enounce by SLC.

        Some time they may ignore Tharanga for Jayasuriya. (My argument is that jayasuriy is better than Tharanga.)

    Squad is good.. but here we go again Sanath included in the WC squad, in what grounds?
    He has done a valuable service to the country no doubt but he’s time is over.
    The predictions made by the critics regarding his inclusion to the WC squad is coming true. Good move to include Vassy as there is nobody to step in for his left arm fast bowling position.
    We hope that Sanath will not be in final 15 man squad, Aravinda has done good job up to now but if SJ gets into final 15 he’s reputation will also will fade & we the viewers will be disgusted seeing the obvious wrong decision being made during the WC matches.
    Cheers

    • Sanjaya Ekanayake

      I totally disagree with you. If Aravinda has done good job up to now. Why he gave so many chances for useless players like Kapuwa, Tharanga, Dihara, Samaraweera (useless for ODI), Chamara Silva, Dhammika Prasad
      Therefore, I think not Sana but if above players gets into final 15 he’s reputation will also will fade & we the viewers will be disgusted seeing the obvious wrong decision being made during the WC matches.
