  • Prasanna Bandara

    Tilan samaraweera not match with one day squad.What about chinthake jayasinghe and youngesters chandimal and kapugedara.

  • pushpitha

    i think dinesh chandimal should be included in this team,he’s one for the future.
    nice to see lahiru in the team hope he get a chace to play.

  • ruchira

    its nt resonable to leave malinga coz he didnt get enouh amount of matches to get his rhythm.he wansnt given matches regularly.then how can a player gets into his stride without enough matches.its very unreasosanable to leave malinga.

  • niroshan

    i want to know why you drop malinga and mendis. they did not had enough chances in indian tour.i am really disappointed the way you treating the 2ms.

    Dropping Sanath Jayasuriya signifies, The Death of Sri Lankan Cricket. You hardly see the consequences with Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. The outcome in advance, India will win the final.

    “One man show”, Jayasuriya contributes lots of positive reputation to Sri Lanka. Non Sri Lankans watch Sri Lankan cricket only because of Jayasuriya. It is inconceivable to ascertain and to get wind, a third world nation, the way they treat to a natural born cricketer.

    Who is De-Mel?, Where did he play cricket?, never discovered this person’s name before. Thanks to Jayasuriya, this man is getting notable.

    God Bless Sri Lanka without Jayasuriya.

    Very disappointed to see Sanath being dropped. I assume this is just for a series, to give youngsters a chance.
