    Yap i also think vass doing well but there no vacant position to play Vass. butmaharoof has done well but he not doing well than vass if we get last 5 appear in county matches so selectors has to put there site back & think about future cricket in srilanka

  • Asanka

    SLC moderator,

    pls reply to sampath’s comment. why don’t u play in other ground. such as ssc, pss, galle.

  • http://No Sampath

    Why don’t you play other ground in Sri Lanka ? Though there are eight ground in Sri Lanka , the tri nation ODI play in only Dambulla. We would not allow for that.


  • M. Thillekerathne

    Mr. Aravinda

    Please have grassy pitches against Indians as we did before our first test win as spinners are nothing for Indians

  • Nihal thennakoon

    To selectors,
    Vass is doing well @county matches both bating and balling, why don’t give a another chance? May be next ODI world cup!

  • Nihal thennakoon

    My cricket team for next year world cup
    Thanranga/ chandimal
    Jeewan mendis
    Malinga. L


    not only chandimal , JEEWANTHA KULATUNGA shoud be in

  • http://SS supun

    Kan”DUMBI” & SARAMAweera are good friends of Selectors & Sangakkara

    SO our super talented young cricketer Chandimal wont get a chance

  • http://SS nana

    Chandimal should be our no 3 from here on…………for another 18 years

    Sangakkara is jealous of chandimal………because he is more talented

  • kamal


  • dgnp perera

    kulatunga should be in the team … as an opener or middle order batsman… if aravinda will not confirm player like kulatunga aravinda also like asantha my team is
    kulatunga | tharanga
    chandimal | kandamby
    kapugedara | KULATUNGA

  • api srilankan

    this tour also same as? no any new commers. Aravinda also like Asantha diffrance only name…………………

  • http://SS yy

    Rukshan is right

    but i prefer Sanga to bat @ 4 & Mahela to bat @ 5
    Mahela is a better batsman against spin than Sanga

    but this will never happen
    both sanga & Mahela want to bat up the order
    but they should think more about team than their individual preferences……….

    i would also like to see Thrimanne opening with Dilshan in TESTS…
    Chandimal should wicket keep & bat at no 6 in TESTS

  • Manula

    Sri Lanka ODI team. What I like to see.

    1. Dilshan
    2. Tharanga
    3. Chandimal
    4. Sanga
    5. Mahela
    6. Mathews
    7. Kapugedara or Jeewan Mendis
    8. Thisara Perera
    9. Kulesekara
    10. Suraj Randiv or Murali
    11. Lasith Malinga

    If our management is brave enough to drop Murali cz is out of form. We have a good batting line up til no.10 and 4 strike bowlers + 3 part time bowlers.

    What more u can ask?

  • Manula

    Just giving a chance is not enough. All we did for the past two years is introduce someone to the national team and ask him to play @ numberi 6 or 7. They never get a chance to build an innings. After few matches he’s off nd replaced by an old horse. Look at India. Karthik opens the batting. Murali @ No. 3. Rohith @ no.4. then comes the seniors Dhoni and Raina.
    Let youngsters come in and take some responsibility.Let them build an innings. Sanga Mahela can help them do that. Don’t be so selfish. Don’t just think about yourself and next IPL contract.
    What’s the point of playing Samaraweera at no6 or 7? He’s not a big hitter. he’s not a bowler. he’s not a good fielder. He’s a good test player.
    Look at all the previous matches. Dilshan and Tharanga gives us good start. first 10 overs we always have a run rate more than 6. Then comes Sanga slows everything down. Then it’s too much pressure on Mahela and rest. If sanga can’t bat freely and score runs please ask Kapugedara or Chandimal to come @ no3.


    this is my elevens
    malinga with 2 good bowlers

  • neha.

    ya jeevantha kulatunga should be choosen.. .. selecters can use him as an opener or middle order bastman

  • sampath

    i really agree with rukshan team it’s the best elevens kulatunga most suit for open plase and dinesh no 3 ..ya it’s true and sanga no 5 wat a team middle order problems are over two good openers kulatunga|dilshan this 11 can be win wc 2011 but aravinda’s 11 with samare, kandamby. tharanga we never win……

  • Chaminda

    Selectors should give a chance to janaka Gunaratna to show his colour at least in the 3 day warm up match as he is generif form during the past few months looking at his performaces in Inter provice tournament. If selectors feels that Man of the touramenent of the Inter province Tournament is not taleted enough to play even in an 3 day pratice match, then they should not continue this inter province tournment as it has no value to the selectors.

  • asela

    selectors should think about upul tharangas consistent run form in odis and should give him a chance in tests

  • udith

    upul tharanga should be the opening partner of dilshan.he has been in consistent form in odi matches

  • Rukshan Sathyananda

    i too agree with yy and sanga must bat at no 5 position just like dhoni ..
    most of the times when India or chennai lost their way dhoni just come and guide his team to the win.

    and dinesh must used as the wicketkeeper in test matches!!
    Samaraweera is good at tests but not at ODI ‘s.

  • Anony

    Chandimal and Jeevan Mendis should be chosen

  • sampath

    aravinda u must give a chance to jeevantha kulatunga up comming ind, new tour of srilanka. please remove samaraweera and add kulatunga or chandimal. but chandimal not suit for no 5 or6 position he is suit for no 3. jeevanta kulatunga will be the better option


    jeewantha kulatunga should be in the team…. he is suit 4 opening and no5 position . only player who got centuries in all provincial. formats 50 overs, t20, 4 dayers

  • virajini

    Thirimanne should bat this time.he is more talented batsman for test matches.i agree with yy.Sadly our senior cricketers are very jealous & selfish.they dont like to give a chances for new-comers.and also chandimal have to show his colours again.hope selectors give young players a chance..?

  • http://SS yy

    Chandimal should bat @ no 3………..and wicket keep

    Sanga should concentrate on his batting & captaincy

    Tissara Perera/Welagedara
    Suraj Randiv

    Why selectors dont give young players a chance..?
    look at india……….their batting line up is lot stronger but still Kholi & Sharma bats there

    Sadly our senior cricketers are very jealous & selfish
    Randiv too is better than Murali for ODIs & T20s
    he is a better batsman & a better fielder…………..

    chandimal is more talented than even Kholi & Sharma

    but unfortunately he was born in a such a backward country..
    otherwise he could have ROCK the cricket world

    ALso I hope ICC will cancel WC matches in Sri Lanka………
    its all about TOSS here in SL

    If it is a day & night match-bat first,you won the match
    in day game-bowl first , means you won the match

    India played 13 matches in SL last 2 years & won 8
    in all those matches Dhoni won the toss

    SLBCC & our pitch curators are responsible than our cricketers for our very law ICC rankings…………………………
