Score Card: SL v NZ

  • Saju

    Why silva and thilan?
    Kapu is capable of making score fast than both these test batsmens.he is a good fielder than these 2 old aged players.where is Perera.he is better in bowling and batting than useless herath!

  • tth

    but thian not suitable for batting. i think chamara kapu better to him.
    samaraweera cant play good innigs with big scores. useless

    • Ajith

      Kapugedara is same as Samaraweera. both players not suit for SL team.

  • Premasiri

    Sangakkara & Mahela are being in their mid-thirties it is quite natural, their reflexes and foot-movement to become very slow with age. As a result they waste lots of scoring opportunities. These two vital places have to be filled with stroke-filled young batsmen of solid technique & lightning foot-work that have maintained consistency from their young schooldays (at least immediately after the WC). Otherwise future performances of SL won’t be that good. Foreign commentators may make various favorable remarks about these two veterans but that won’t make any good for the future of Cricket in the Country.
    Bangladesh uses foreign experts to unearth the best young talent in that country. Whereas our inept selectors are somewhat vary of introducing even players of extreme talent. A young promising player should be introduced to the Side at the time that player’s confidence at its peak but definitely not at the time,the selectors want. These spineless people of last 15 years have always waited till the established players to die to introduce a prospective future player. Sometimes they (the selectors of recent past) have brought in very ordinary (young) players of limited skills for unknown reasons.

    Are these selectors going to believe Chamara Silva and Samaraweera any more? I think now its time to think about Kapugedera again. He is an excellent hitter of the ball, and also he is the best fielder in the side. Selectors have to think about this before the quarter finals start. If not we all will be in trouble.

  • kalu

    This is a good lesson to the selectors. Fortunately Sanga and Mahela played well. See the way that Samaraweera and Silva played. Why these selecters are this much of reluctant to at least give one another chance to Kapugedera. What we can accept from silva. Kapugedera is far better than Silva.
