    Jayasooriya was a brilliant cricketer. no doubt. But he and the selectors should understand that everybody grows old and can not contribute the way they did when they were young. It is good to include young and talented players instead people like jayasooriya.

    Well done Kumar Sangakkara. Well done!!!! Brits stopped playing early yesterday, thinking that they could thrash our Sinhala boys!!!! Bad weather in England is a norm, but if it isn’t the bad weather, they blame the pitch. Shame the match was stopped and then decided to call it a draw today after tea. I am glad I didn’t go to Southampton all the way, over two hour journey by train, even for the £10.00 a ticket offer. Still, I so love cricket.

  • tharanga

    why they selected chamara kapugedhara ?actually he is good fielder& he got lot of opportunity but still he unable to show his color .as a batsmen i think he has played more than 50( o.d.i ) games ….so i believe selectors must give chance for new players ……because after sanga and mahella leave we must find good responsible batsmen,s .
    so selectors gave chance but he unable to show his confidence as a batsmen.still his foot work,s weak ….so he might improved his batting

    caminda vaas is great bowler why he is not selected.
    camara silva, camara kapugedara & dilhara frenando is not good selection.

  • imran

    well cricket is a funny game, one good match can bring Sanath back, people forget their past and its a good example. yes Sanath should retire from cricket but we should let him play till the world up. people who dont know about cricket will say no Sanath. I remember a time when people didnt like Dilshan, Jayawardene, but now what do people say?
