  • lassi

    in case of sanath he should be given a chance to retire in a respectable manner he really deserves that for what he has done for the country . an

    and i dnt think its a good idea to just dump samaraweera, silva although we,ve got to give opportunity to the youngsters

  • Indira Gandhi

    Shame Srilankan cricketboard and the sports minister, loketama wihiluwak, Why Jayasuriya? he is a old man now, why don’t you give chances to young guns, there are plenty of young guns never get the opportunity due to this old money greedy Jayasuriya, his time gone, he should be retired.

  • Pubudu

    JEEWAN MENDIS IS A GOOD SELECTION.. IT WOULD BE GOOD IF BANUKA RAJAPAKSHA IS DRAFTED IN TO THE SQUAD AFTER THE 1ST ODI ONCE SANATH JAYASOORIYA GETS RETIRED.

  • mendis

    I think sanath is the greatest player what we found so far from srilanka. we must give him a chance to say good bye for the cricket. (at least one match)

  • Sanjeewa

    It’s gud 2 salute jayasuriya 4 wht he has done 4 SL cricket.He’ll play only 1 ODI

  • jaya

    i think we cant win any matched with oaly sana?

  • Darusman

    Ok team was selected so we can’t say wrong about it.but i like to see more young players than 40+teens

  • Darusman

    Sri Lanka grand papa’s vs england teens

  • Randika

  • ran- uae

    Why? Sana. recall “kALU ” also. Than Upul CHANDHANA. DARMASENA. VASS. Even Aravinda. mahanama ALso .

    Follish Crickeet. Funy joker in world Dulip ???????????????

    NO NEED TO WAISTED OUR TIME 4 CRICKET?

  • subah

    I THINK JAYASOORIYA WANT SOME MONEY ? THAT WHY NEED TO GIVE CHANCE? BZUSE DULIP ALSO WAISTED MAN IN OUR LAND? HE IS ONLY ARRANGE S. AFRICA TOUR ( MAY BE MORE THAN 20 YERS)

    HE ALSO FOOLISH & USELESS GEN ???????????????

  • Kandahewa

    Aiyo why not include aravinda,mahanama,gurusingha? even bandula warnapura…we should recall them also..pathetic decision by SLC.. Sanath been in srilankas cricket team since 15000 bc is he ever gonna retire??

  • Priyantha

    This limited overs cricket series is NOT the final one of that kind that SL is playing. It is a series that SL should look for forming a stable and solid team for the future. So, there is no point in bringing in some of our old players for short stints. So, SELECTORS PLEASE DO NOT BRING IN JAYASOORIYA, VAAS, or even MURALI for that matter. We have quite matured players in the side: they are Sanga, Mahela and Dilshan. We need new blood in the team. Please play Chandimal and one or two other new players.

  • wimal

    This is typical Sri Lankan cricket,this is again remine us this is Sri lanka not Australia or els

  • Pubudu

    Sanath ??? C’mon is he going to play for lankan team till 60…what a joke…greedy players & political selections that’s whats so evident.. give a chance to a younger guy like Banuka Rajapaksha..

    • ajanth

      ya . i agreed with you?
      Banuka. schintha. our good youngres . i think cricket also like political no need age for doing that. i think dulip doing political thing . What to do this is a srilanka .

      All doing political . ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

      .

  • ajanth

    i think may be 80% good selection. only prblum sanath. & kulasekara. he is not good form in last wc matches also.

    but dinesh. should be play?

  • bbb

    i think our team 1. dilshan. 2, dinesh. 3, sanga. 4. mahela. 5. malinga. 6. suraj. 07. jeewan. 08.kandambi. 9. dilhara. 10. tissera. 11. anglow/ sanath.

  • goda

    i think this time will give chance for Dinesh . & dimuith. But KULASERA waisted player.

  • supun

    Jayasuriya in for tharanga, thats ok..but why kandamby??n he s the vice captain?lol

  • RANGA

    I think Political selection. OVER 41 yers sana (I am sorry MP) also playing cricket.

    Duleep. PLEASE CALL to vas. murali. Arajuna. Hashan. Aravinda. Chandha ETC/ all masters players in the sl.

    Foolish cricket.???????????
    i think we cant win any matched in Eng

    better think we have to help India?

  • Dharshana Jayasuriya

    Rangana Herath should have been included in the squad since he’s a very accurate and experienced left arm spinner. His accuracy will suit the one day game plus he’s got english county experience as well.

  • kanishka

    i think the credit should go to the selection commitee for selecting the right squad. i am really impressed about the inclusion of chandimal and dimuth. they are young and doing extreamly well in domestic arena.not sure about sanath’s inclusion but we can give him a run and wait and see.it is up to him to prove himself.

  • Mr.Cricket

    A promising Team… 1000 times better than the test team… My Playing 11 should be
    1) Dilshan
    2) Sanath
    3) Sanga
    4) Mahela
    5) Kandambi
    6) J. Mendis
    7) T. Perera
    8) S. Randiv
    9) L.malinga
    10) N. Kulasekera
    11) D. Fernando

    • Mr.Cricket

      Ok…then is we drop Sanath and play Chandimal???

    • Mr.Cricket

      If we drop sanath and play Chandimal?

  • Bhanuka
