    yes, Give Chaminda Vass to save Sri Lanka in 2011 world cup, He and Murali will do the best

  • Suresh

    Even my sugesstion is to bring back chaminda. Because vasi + murali is a world class combination and both are still strong for limited over matches. They both played many matches and psychologically they did well.They both were in the 1996 wining team. So, why don’t we consider this again. As a Srilankan, I want my country to win the 2011 world cup at any cost. Now everything is in Aravinda’s and the Hon. Sports Minister’s hand. Please consider.

    TO Sir Aravinda DeSilva… Our TEAM/SQUAD of Players are Good…but WHAT WE NEED IS PROPER ROLE IDENTIFICATION… BATTING is OUR MAJOR CONCERN FOR SOMETIME NOW… The Choices… OPENERS- Dilshan is Sure bet for WorldCup, then We Hav The Decent Tharanga n Anothr Opener in Mahela Who played with Much Freedom as Opener And At HIS BEST( AFTER LONG TIME) IN THIS SLOT at 20/20 WC….So Choose The Best 2 Openers…OUR PROBLEM FOR A WHILE NOW IS WHEN WE LOSE 2QUICK WICKETS WE FOLD UP… So We Need A STABLE,CAPABLE CONSISTENT BATTER AT NUM 4 TO PARTNER SANGA…MY BEST BET IS KANDAMBY… EVEN IN THE ICC CHAMPIONS TROPHY HE RESCUED US TO A DECENT SCORE AGAINST ENGLAND WEN OUR TOP FAILED… Num5 Comes THILAN THEN 6 MATTHEWS 7 KAPU WHO I FEEL IS IMPROVING…. This Batting Line Up Can Give The Much Needed STABILITY WEN OUR OPENERS FAIL… Kanda Can Also Bowl sum Leggies and Dilly n Matthews to Fill the 5th Bowler… Then We NEED TO LOOK AT OUR BEST BOWLING ATTACK… At the Moment Its KULA,MALINGA,RANDIV N MURALI….. But do We Play 2Spinners or Bring a Pacy..? Then Or Choices are Slim…its Perera,erratic Maharoof or Welagedara…

    Guys ,
    Sri lankan will never win the worldcup if they play like this.The team is largely unbalanced .There are no players of the calibere of Arjuna,aravinda,Hashan,Mahanama or Gura who cann control or steer a team to victory.The theory is if dilshan gets run we win.If he goes early everybody follows.The captain and the previous captain may be stylish batsmans but they are no even near to the skill levels of Arjuna and aravida when it comes to winning matches.Talent is definetly there but responsibilty is not even to be seen.What do you say SLC Moderator ?

  • Asanka

    SLC Moderator,

    Actually what I want to know is whether any senior player threatened to retire if he drop from todays match.

    • SLC Moderator

      Asanka,
      Selectors looked at many options to give balance to the team to feature in the final. However the final decision on the playing XI will only take place after close inspection of the wicket at noon. No player has threatened to retire if being dropped for today’s game.

  • Daasa

    If Maharoof get at least 2 or 3 wickets in the final then Aravinda’s decision is shown. Actually it seems like the team is been balanced by Aravinda. Everyone has a role to play. Dilshan to after the bowling. Tharanga to keep his wicket & go after bowling if Dilshan gets stuck. Earlier his role was to go after the bowling from ball number 1 which is why he failed most. Kapugedara has loads of talent. They are waiting till the right times for him to come good. Mistake with him was he was given the chance a bit early. 2 All rounders & 3 genuine blowers can do the job. India also have 2 all rounders in Jadeja & P Kumar. Their batsmen also are world class, But they are not clicking together as a team & which is why they are not consistent. So Sri Lanka just have your guard. All the best.

  • Shaheem

    well done boys all the best for the finals, Congrats farveez maharoof

  • kalpa

    wel done maharoof weldone mr.aravinda de silva!maharoof gave the answer for the ppl who criticize him.

  • wijayatunga

    In the final on the24th, Dilshan should be more careful when he bats than in this match. He needs to score a 50+ if SL bat first. And only one specialist spinner should play. Dilshan should bowl few odd overs. Playing two all-rounders (Mathews and Maharoof) would be an definite advantage. Mostly inswingers mixed with odd outswingers could better way to bowl by the fast bowlers

  • SL Cricket Fan

    Well done SL! this team is the best combination, once malinga & Murali comes in for Welagedara & Herath…

  • Ozzy

    Good to see Sanga making changes in the team and giving everyone in the squad an opportunity and also commendable was Sanga’s odd decsion to bat second underlights.Hope to see them work harder and Win agin the Asia cupp in the Final,Maha was outstanding and so was the Lanka batting and fielding.
