    Wr is Chamara kapugedara have u ignred ???

    I don’t see much wrong with the selection of most players be it for test, odi or T20 (although not a great fan of this format).
    In my opinion Chandimal has great potential, I wish him and all the youngsters all the best.
    I like to know though why is there political influence in the sport of cricket or any sports for that matter.
    The Board of control should be independents and consist of good honest and decent personnel. The politicians should butt out of sports and concentrate on doing their jobs honestly and efficiently.

    dropping thilan samaraweera is bad mistake. he is sri lankan anchor. no replace for him yet.

  • Wando

    Sigh.. Bhanuka Rajapakse soo much talent there, if only the chance and confidence is given.. we all mark him so high as a cricketer and individual but currently outa form SLC should do something about it, probably maybe a T20 Call up, ?

  • Buwaneka

    Chandimal Will be the next Captain for 2015 world cup..

  • Mike

    Where is Anjelo Perera & Bhanuka Rajapaksha? Mr. Sanath Jayasuriya, Why not include both of them. They are similar to future Sanga and Mahela.

  • chamara

    where is tharanga? captaincy is not suitable for chandimal,he has not permanet place in team

  • Ian

    I hope Chandimal move will work, because his batting has been poor in T20.

    Not sure about Ajantha Mendis, Jeevan Mendis and Kusal Janith for Tests. Decent selection otherwise.

  • mrcricket

    why is chandimal the t20 captain?? he’s not even a regular player in the side and i dont think he can even play a good t20 game. disappointing to see whats happening to lankan cricket!

  • Razak

    what about dilshan munaweera he must get chances to play in ODI and T20 side. it is unfair for him, he has got only 2 T20 matches at this time he is doing well in bangaldesh not only bat
    from the ball also. why dont u all consider about him please?????
