who's that fucker introduce chandimal to the sri lanka cricket.
chandimal fucker is not a cricket player. He is the one destroy the 3rd match against pakistan. So many dots belongs his names.

Kapugedera need to comer early.
prasanna must included to the team.

chasing is the good option instead of batting first.
we don't have the talented bowlers to defend runs.

Sadeera should open with Tharanga, dickwella can come down and bat, him falling after making a quick 25 or 30 is not good enough, let mendis bat at 1 down and tirimmane at 2 down...

We Pakistanis expect the same love support and big heart that we showed in 1996 visiting Srilanka where there were bombs blasts everyday. 100s of people were dieing. Pakista army sent its soldiers commandoes to fight tamils supported by India. we share bond of friendship and brotherhood with our Srilankan brothers and need their help in this time. this article and the way it defined us is really heart breaking.

If these selectors had some brain, they would have kept Sadeera after his pleasing knock in the second Test in with the ODI squad guessing a potential scenario like this, had he been there Sadeera would have played in the third game. But of course we know they don't have 'it'. Why Danushka will not play tomorrow? He was due to be named in the T20 squad so should be match ready.The selectors should not pick Chandimal ever again for the ODIs, Jayasuriya said it so openly. That is why I think Chandimal heaped praise on these selectors after the Test victory taking a swipe at Jayasuriya. But Chandimal's performance again confirmed Jayasuriya (& all of us) are hundred percent right. Similarly Thrimanne should never be in the Test squad again. If they include him for the Indian Tests the fans should revolt against this set of selectors too.

Munna Salman, I must say I agree with you bro even though you're from India. I watched the game, sadly I felt that none of them (Tharanga, Chandimal Thirimanne) tried to take Pakistan bowling or not even tried to rotate the strike or try something to put them off. I can understand if it was others but we are talking about most senior batsmen in to side playing like school boys. It's not good enough making runs at the expense of gobbling up too many balls.

You can't blame these three players for that. Because that's how they bat. As my Physics teacher is to say"You can't get blood from a stone". This problem is created and the blame should be put fairly and squarely on selectors lack of ability to select a team based on horses for courses.

When they do that we will see the difference it makes. But my question is whether they think that way?

Yeah, our stupid team mgmt, coaches, and selectors have failed to see the root cause of batting collapse was due to chandimal and thirimanna. Both are just playing selfishly for a place in ODI squad. Chandimal may be decent in Tests, but he shouldn't be allowed to play ODIs at all -- at least he should prove his worth in domestic arena and/or IPL/CPL/BPL for white ball cricket. Oh yes, Kapugedara is the other one -- he may not be selfish but he has no temperament (among other issues) and virtually a useless middle order batsman

Why is he replacing Siriwardana? I agree Siriwardana has been awful but Sadeera should not bat lower than number 4. The main reason for our batting issues is with Chandimal and Thirimanne. They waste too many balls in there innings. I would rather have someone out for 2 off 5 balls rather than being out for 18 off 45 balls.

Why change Tharanga's spot after he has been doing so well there? The problem is our middle order, our top order is decent(I'm sure Dickwella will start scoring runs soon)

Upul Tharanga
Niroshan Dickwella
Sadeera Samarawickrama
Dhanushka Gunathilaka
Milinda Siriwardana
Thisara Perera
Akila Dhananjaya
Jeffrey Vandersay
Suranga Lakmal
Dushmantha Chameera
Lahiru Gamage

I think neither Chandimal or Thirimanne should play. Sadeera replaces Chandi and if Gunathilaka is playing then he should replace Thirimanne. Both Chandi and Thiri have not got the right mindset to play this format anymore. Both have a strike rate that is too low. Only the openers are allowed to take more time in there innings as they are the ones initially building up the total. Middle order players should have a strike rate of 90-100 at the minimum.

What a coach!? Great way to talk about your team! Great indication of the coaches attitude towards the team. This is obviously why the team Does not gel. During Ford's tenure, no matter how often the batsmen failed, never did he speak against them. Pothas's comments will only deteriorate the team's confidence further. Looks at what they'v now done to Kusal Mendis! Such a great talent.... ruined his confidence, and as soon as he is out of form, he's dropped! By the same logic, we should probably drop Gurusinha and Pothas for their failure to perform! Since Gurusinha's arrival, it's been disastrous

This is the type of coaching needed. Tough approach.
