    Dilshan is not a unlucky player or bad player. But he is not a carrect man to captency. Mahela or sanga is well to captancy

    what you think thats write or wrong

  • Ideal M

    Our skipper mr. Dilshan is not suitable for his job. And also Mahela must be the opener as he has a good history and responsibility. SANGA IS THE UNIQUE CAPTAIN…
    WE MUST OPEN THE DOOR TO YOUNGERS….. WE SEE OUR DREAMS THROUGH OUR CRICKET PLAYERS… therefore let them to play as birds…

  • Ajas

    Please change the captain. Dilshan doesn’t play well and he is unlucky.

    sl must play a balanced team of young/senior players, consisting oa a good combimation of batsmen and bowlers who could be exciting to watch and play for the team. PERHAPS TIME TO REST MAHELA FOR A WELL DESRVED BREAK. LET HIM FIND HIS FORM SLOWLY. MATHEWS IS ALSO NO MORE EXCITING. Chandimal must keep as he is a clear star, and let senior sanga score as a batter. we may play thilan for consistency. Lets see……….

    dilshan, upul tharanga, chandimal, sanga, thilan, thisara, malinga, welagedara, ajantha mendis, herath, plus a few promissing newcomers to form the pool. what happened to kapugedera?

    elvitigala can play in the 3rd test as the suprise element and sure to succeed like pattinson, de lange etc.

    Tough test,huh.. Jaques Kallis, Gramme Smith all them they all can deliver, but I have a strong feeling that Srilanka have a chance.

      srilanlk can win series, as south africa is in shock! whatever they do will now fail. wait and see.

    acording latest icc odi teams ranking sri lanka has moved on no.04 from no.02 thats very bad news and pakistan is not too far from sl being in the 5th place and at present pakistan is playing an odi series against bangaladesh therefore pakistan has a good opportunity of leading sri lankacif the win with a white wash. so sri lanka should do.realy well against south africa if not sri lanka will go back to its usual position in the odi team rankings…

  • Pubudu

    Should include Banuka Rajapaksha in the ODI squad

  • http://deleted kevin

    For the odis lets bring jeevan mendis to number 5 or 6 for a change and see if he can deliver some useful batting that is lacking in the current sl side..no more chamara please.. Atleast he was the most successful spinner in the pak tour..

    • Thilina senadeera

      Ya that’s right these days our team needs some batting performances.So the team should be strengthened with good all rounders specially in the middle order
