    In few of my earlier comments I’ve classed the selectors of last 25 years as incompetent but If I had called them bunch of idiots I think most people would agree with me I’m sure. They have become god fathers of some influential players. One may notice these ordinary cricketers have found places in every National team though they have been very ordinary in their entire career. For unknown reasons these same people have been sent to every foreign tournaments. The players who have excelled at school level are continuously ignored in order to provide places for their henchmen. As I have mentioned in my many comments in this web site we would be beaten at regular basis by young Bangladeshies ,Zimbabwians & Afganistan in the very near future as our selectors and other responsible people have no life without Sangakkaras, Mahelas and other jokers.
    For information of readers I have attached herewith a comment I have submitted on a previous occasion.

    We are ranked No 2 is not because of batting skills of Mahela, Sangakkara ,Chamara Silva,Kapugedara, Mubarak or Khandamby but for young batsmen who have joined the team recently and have maintained consistency with perfect technique (Technique is not all about style but the batsman’s ability play the ball all along the ground right from the middle of the bat when it is really necessary with vast array of strokes) from their schooldays and the promotion of quality batsmen like Dilshan (who have been a given license to bat like an insane man) from middle order to a frontline.
    One cannot always bat like a mad dog with risky strokes to win matches. For situation like in the 3rd ODI on 07 XI 10 we should have picked quality batsmen to bat at No 3, 4 & 5 positions in particular who have had maintained consistency from the age of 15 years the likes of Thlan Samaraweera, Khausal Silva Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, Lahiru Thirimanna, Dimuth Karunarathna… ., ( Those who know how to preserve their wickets under difficult situations)
    We cannot win matches by picking sons of some influential persons and overrated players who are yet to learn how to play the ball all along the ground right from the middle of the bat at will. It is disgusting to watch these two highly blessed players with 900 odd International innings between them struggle when they have got caught on a difficult wicket I would like to invite all supporters of these two to verify their ODI statistics in their early careers before commenting things in their favor. The scoring of 50 runs without offering risky strokes is more precious for the team than scoring 200 with 101 chances.
    We need 1or2 Tendulkar like batsmen or modern-day front line batsmen the likes of Jonathan Trot of England, Hashim Amla, AB de Viliers,.. who have no complications in their stroke play. However the incompetent & more adamant authorities of recent times have always wanted to play some very ordinary players who have weaker skills than two blessed players for unknown reasons and above all they were allowed to bat as frontline batsmen. They the authorities have had no concern what so ever of Prestige & Dignity of the Country.
    To win an ODI tournament involving 7 matches, the frontline batsman should be able to maintain consistency rate of 5 out of 7 innings i.e. he must score 50 runs or more at least in 5 innings ( that is what Hashan Aravinda,Mahanama,& Arjuna did in 1996) but with these favorite players of Authorities who struggled to win the Tri-Nation tournament in Bangladesh in 2009 involving Zimbabwe & lost five home series to England once ,India thrice and Pakistan once in recent times, we could have end up at the Bottom in the final play list .
