    Nuwan Pradeep should be in team.Everybody knows about Chanaka Wellagedera and Thilan Thushara but we never seen Nuwan Pradeep playing.Could he bowl at 150kmph?

    we remember when Aravinda de Silva came to seen said that he will select the players merely on the performances that they made.. I’m asking Mr. Aravinda, are you too like the others? who says something for the sake of saying something? there are players who are in this squad who have not even played on SL A teams..what is this JOKE..
    It is very bad to select players on personal backgrounds and personal relationships..
    we are asking why JANAKA GUNARATHNA is not in the squad?? because he is coming from a small club in CHILAW?? we know for sure that if he came from a colombo club he would have been made the TEST side by know.. it is a shame Mr. Aravinda.. im afraid this time you have done a very bad thing to JANAKA GUNARATHNA, especially he has performed exceptionally well in the past A team matches with the ball and the bat… very very bad decision ARAVINDA…I hope this will lit up your eyes and prompt a change..

  • Niluka
