  • niel

    Shanol you should move around and watch some matches before commenting. Dilshan Munaweera is a true hard hitter from bloomfield and Nalanda college. who deserves to play 20 / 20 or one days, still he needs to work on his game for the longer version. because he under values his game in the longer version. i prefer u should stay with out coughing for others.

    Bloomfield cricket fan

  • sajith

    bad selections once again. sri lanka should consider youngsters for this world cup otherwise in 2015 it will be a joke. Dimuth, Munaweera, banuka, kusal, andy solomons seekuge prasanna should be in the 30 men pool

    • Raja

      They are just jokers you can’t expect anything more than this. The persons who’ve appointed them to thesevital positions only should be blamed.

    • shanol

      I think Sajith shoud be in 30 squad

  • uma prasanth

    final 11 should be these guys

  • shanol

    I think DIlshan Munaweera commenting abt him by him self ..

    • sajith

      shanol i have mentioned his name couple of times,as my theary on cricket i would say this fellow should be in the 20 20 at least. and so i dont see any negatives on those comments as well whether its him or not .

      • shanol

        Sajith what Do YOU KNOW ABT CRICKET ..Nothing keep quite and see wat happens..

  • Premasiri

    They won’t pick players who can be threats to and be challenge to seniors. When other countries give their 1st preference to highly talented (Maintained consistency) schoolboy cricketers our selectors of last 20 years have always come up with funny excuses to drop them. The performances in SA shouldn’t be an excuse to drop youngsters, cos 3 seniors’ performances outside the Country are far worse and pathetic to describe here. SL needs the kind of selectors they have in England & SA. The selectors have to be past Cricketers with successful careers who have gathered thorough knowledge of the Game by following extensively both in & out of the Country. The kind of selections have been done here can be made by any idiot. The performances of last IPL is enough even to drop 3seniors.
    Out of fall these names:
    Mathews,Chandimal,Thirimanne,Nuwankulaseara,ThisaraPerera,Kaushal,Lokuarachchi,Sachithra Senanayake,Lasith malinga ,Jeevan Mendis, Dhammika Prasad, Farveez Maharoof ,Thilina Kandammby,Shaminda Eranda, Ajantha Mendis can be considered as right pickings. The remaining places should go to Angelo Perera, Bhanuka, Rosen Silva, Ashen Silva, Gayan Maneshan, Kamaleen, Chathuranga Kumara,Chathuranga de Silva, Geeth Alwis,Jehan Jayasooriya, Khausal Silva, Dimuth Karunarathna,Umesh Karunarathna, Dulanjana Mendis, Rohan Jayatissa, Malinda Pushpakumara, Chathura Peiris.

  • sajith

    T.m Dilshan and Dilshan Munaweera should open in twenty twenties for Sri lanka

  • shanol

    I like C.Jayasinghe,K.Weerarathne,D.Lokuhettige,Nimesh Perera,Indika de Saram,J.Gunarathne,and old star C.Vaas they proform well last year and before bt no chance ..how abt bhanuka ?? no chance, how abt DImuth ?? no chance, How abt C Jayashinghe ??? No Chance, how abt K Weerarathne ??? No Chance , how abt J Gunarathne ?????? No chance , how abt Indika De seram ?? No Chance … selectors s**k … they allways put there players bt there r not proform well .. proform players OUT , Non Proform Players IN … Su**s

  • shanol

    what is this bullshit selection.. SLPL Still not started yet !! then how can we know abt new players,new proformares,HOW CAN WE SELECET 30 SQUAD FOR WORD T20 .. bt the bullshit selection.SELECTORS chose there 30 squad for word t20 .. hama dama play karanne ekama eun thami aluth kenekta chance denne na kawadawath .. SL s***s …..

  • Rkjdavid

    I like C.Jayasinghe,K.Weerarathne,D.Lokuhettige,Nimesh Perera,Indika de Saram,J.Gunarathne,and old star C.Vaas

  • asanka

    wher”s rangana herath..?…I think his very well economy bowler….local wickets highly support from spinners…we want left arm spiner for starting XI…..thanks

  • cricket lover

    this selection is bullshit…….i think this is the time to give chances for young players like banuka,dimuth,angelo perera and sachithra serasinghe…..i dont know why they have included kapu,prassanna,kandambi and mubarak for 30 man squad……..

  • Mahesh

    As a old nalandian I must say Mahela jayawardena you should give some hand to players like Dilshan Munaweera. Mahela atleast have you seen him playing in the recently concluded single wicket tournament. he was awesome and he was far better than some of the players who have been named in the 30 men squad. come on brother act like a true Nalandian

    Dilshan Munaweera was the provincial four day best batsmen and he was awarded four times in the ceat awards night.i still can remember i heard he smacked current sri lankan off spinner sachitra senanayake over the fence for consecutive 6 sixers.and also he played really well in the last years hong kong sixes. selectors ,Sri lankan skipper mahela ; hope u’ll give him a go in the international secene.
    Thank you

  • ranjan

    http://www.dailymirror.lk/news/20460-shocking-selections-for-world-t20.html
    Dilshan Munaweera should be in the squad.
    Please moderator consider our thoughts and do something for SL cricket

  • St Sebastian College Moratuwa

  • Moratuwa SC

    in behalf of moratuwa community,i would like to ask the brainless,money hunting selectors why arnt you’l giving a chance to players like Dilshan Munaweera,Kithruwan vithanage,Mahela Udawaththa,angelo perera.??? questions need to be asked?????
    with out giving them a chance you morons keep on giving the usless kapu’s,Muba’s chances. Kusal and banuka will take there spots in the future for sure.

  • nipun

    any one can guess for sure kapugedara & dilruwan perera will be in final 15 even mahela get dropped they will be selected

  • farzan

    something about Akila Dananjaya :his season Mahanama cricket team has registered fi
    ve outright victories consecutively in two day matches. Nimesh Deshan has scored two centuries while Akila Dananjaya and Sashika Thiwanka recorded one century each.

    Akila Dananjaya was able to get 50 wickets in eight matches. Mahanama First XI cricket team was able to have a school record by getting 405 runs for 7 wickets vs St. Anthony’s College Panadura. In that match Nimesh Deshan and Akila Dananjaya were able to build the record partnership of 217 for the fifth cricket. Nimesh Deshan made a record score in Mahanama history by getting 162 runs in 2010.

    • nipun

    T.M Dilshan
    Kumar Sangakkara
    Upul Tharanga
    Dinesh Chandimal
    Anjelo Mathews (vice capt)

  • Chutiya

    Where the hell Angelo Perera/ Bhanuka Rajapaksha

    • safraz

      y is banuka your son ? i thought he is one of romesh kaluwitharana’s son.. WTF he might be good cricketer but he needs to grow up feeling the pain,e goes on tours easily and scored a fifty in about 7 times a match then u crazy buggers are telling to put him to play for Sri lanka.com and watch players such as Mahela udawaththa,Dilshan Munaweera,Kaushal Lokuarachchi,dilhara lokuhettige play.those are true talents of the game. angelo perera,ashan priyanjan sachith pathirana are far better than your blind peoples star Banuka Rajapaksha.

  • sarath hewage

    Mubarak ,Kapugedara,Kusal janith ,maharoof,thilina kandamby , thease players are not inform but stil in the squad players like Dilshan Munaweera, Mahela Udawaththa, Dilhara Lokuhettige, really sad for them. specally dilshan has shown really good since to become great 20 20 player and one day player and still the rubish headed selectors havnt give him a chance

  • niel

    what is this bullshit selection.SELECTORS you’ll think that we are BLIND??? I’m a really good fan of the game cricket and we love this game a lot..though you’ll havent publish the winner of the single wicket tournament we are always behind the scene. Dilshan Munaweera and Dilhara Lokuhettige came to the finals and Dilshan Munaweera was the Champion.

  • Anurasiri

    what kind of selection is this? true hard hitter Dilshan Munaweera is not in the squad. i saw the recently held single wicket tournament and Dilshan Munaweera,Dilhara Lokuhettige ,Andy solomens played really well.but non of them are in the squad. Specially the champion Dilshan Munaweera.Why are the selectors are against him? give him a chance.for get about politics and love the game.its our religion. sack Romesh Kaluwitharana,Asantha Demel, Don anurasiri.

    we love the game but above mention names + politicians have destroyed the game.Ex – Please visit espn cricinfo and look at the recent shocking perfomence of the sri lanka A team.
