Mr. Sanath what are u doing as a selector at least now drop pathetic players like Dimuth Karunarathna , Dinesh Chandimal and give a big warning to Dhananjaya if we want to build a great team in future.

These guy keeping their places scoring once in every 20 innings after 6 years of international experience. Even young bangaldesh players like Shabir Rahman, Mosaddek Hossain, Soumaya Sarkar shot selection better than these players.

DIMIUTH AND CHANDI PLEASE RETIRE !!!

UPUL THARANGA, who drop the catches regularly while failing as the opening batsman should he KICKED OUT OF THE TEAM IMMEDIATELY along with Dananjaya de silvs, and foolish impatient KARUNARATNA, MENDIS AND CHANDIMAL MUST BE SEVERELY WARNED AND should be asked learn how to bat from veteran bowler DILRUWAN PERERA. what a shame. ASELA GUNARATANA AND NIROSHAN DICKWELLA PROVED THAT THEY NOT SUITABLE FOR THE TEST CRICKET. BANGLEDESH TEAM IS FAR BETTER THAN SRILANKAN FOOLS IN ALL THE DEPARTMENTS. THEY DESERVE THE VICTORY.

So you want the two guys that just scored great hundreds to be dropped in place of who or was this written before the this test? Why not drop Mendis and Tharanga? after all they failed in this test? Hey why not drop Asela - he has done nothing over two tests? While we are at it may as well drop Dickwella and recall....lets see, how about Kusal Perera and lets bat him at #3!

To be honest i would go with the complete opposite and drop dhananjaya. Why drop Karunaratne and Chandimal who scored great hundreds this match. Of course the consistency is an issue, but Dhananjaya didnt bat very well in both innings. The main concern is that he always looks uncomfortable playing. If anyone needs to be dropped at the moment its dhananjaya, but he's going to be dropped anyway when Mathews comes back.

Reason why Karanaratna should be dropped very very obvious. He had one or two lives early in the second innings but the keeper dropped & this time he rode his luck. But see, again yes , again come the next new ball he immediately got out leaving Perera alone. Even a bowler Perera weathered the second new ball. had karunaratna stayed not out still could have got a lot of runs, see what Perera & Lakmal did. So it is very obvious his 100 was very one off lucky one. i put blame on Karunaratna because once he got in, he should have gone to a double century like big score like mendis. SO DON'T BE DECEIVED BY HIS 100. HE WILL BE A DUCK WITH THE INDIANS LIKE LAST TIME. we just tell for the sake of sl cricket see what happened we are losing to bangla even.

Stormy Asela playing only his 3rd or 4th test. Dhananjaya has also not one year at international.

Dropping Mendis u??? He is the future he is way better in his shot selection and shots than these pathetic players.

Yes Tharanga also need to be dropped. Only thing I have memory in him that magnificient century he scored in SA. If not for that he must also add to this list soon rather than later

Stormoy rather than giving lame excuses for these 2 go and think about it. These 2 experience players playing over 6 years and still can't get the consistency. They have got the century in this match. They will score another century in ten tests time.

Havent you cacnt see players like Tamim, Soumay, Shabir, Shakib, Musfiqur and even youngster Mosaddek can play better shots than these 2. These 2 like chilhish players. They most scored through luckily edging through the slips, gully etc ...

I can understand your frustration and you have been living with this feeling for so long now..I think you should stop hating Chandimal and start loving him because you are not going to feel any better hating Chandi, regarding inconsistency, i think that is an even bigger joke because Chandi has never fallen below the average of 42 in test cricket, then how do you say he is inconsistent? Nobody is score 50 or 100 in every inning, Chandi is the most reliable batsmen in the SL team now and has been for last 2 years or so..

Niroshan Dickwella is banned for the first match. I also think its best if Tharanga opens. No point having him the team if he is not playing in the normal spot. Having only Sanjaya ans Thisara as are fast bowlers is not good enough. Thisara usually always gets knocked around so best to have Lakmal in aswell. If Chandimal was to not play:

Upul Tharanga
Kusal Perera
Kusal Mendis
Dhanushka Gunathilaka
Asela Gunaratne
Sachith Pathirana
Seekuge Prassana
Thisara Perera
Suranga Lakmal
Vikum Sanjaya
Lakshan Sandakan
