Exactly. Why would anyone even bring this here? All the players are adults and they can decide what to do and what not to do. First, bring the proof that Samthipala did this and then we can talk about it later if anyone wants or else stick to the cricket.

All the batsmans are explosive players perfect for t20s a more suitable team for the modern cricket just like All the top teams in the world like Australia, India, South Africa, England.

This is a Soild team with a good Batting unit and Bowling unit just need to improve the fielding. Hopefully the selectors are not stupid to continue with Upl Thranga instead of Kusal Perea or Daunshka Gunathlaka

Positivity is something sadly lacking in skipper Mathews... so it should start from there it self. Upul should open in all matches and best combination would be UT/ ND as openers.

KJP had ruined too many chances in English conditions dumping SL wasting 11 innings to collect 129 runs @ 11.72 av with 73 SR. .!

KJP as Opener completely doomed SL in previous 2013 ICC-CT played in Eng... comically failing in all 4 innings -14 runs @ 3.50 Av - 60 SR with 3 DUCKS.!

I agree... Just stick to cricket.. What do we hope to achieve by stirring up unnecessary issues.. If the players feel uncomfortable, its up to them.. None of our business..

This is going no where - lets stick to the cricket guys and religion especially has no role here.

People should understand that Sri Lanka is Buddhist country because of the constitution and it is a democratic country where everyone can decide on what religion that the should follow or not... If sumathipala wants to go to temple he can go but he has no right to ask others join but I m not sure whether he asked everyone to come to the temple of tooth relic, everyone must understand that Buddhism came from India and did not originate in Sri Lanka ??? is vijaya a Sri Lankan ??? No .. No.. So how can they call all Buddhists are from Sri Lanka... Most Buddhists are Sri Lankans and Indians who converted into Buddhist,,,, and there are other Sri Lankans who are Muslims and Tamils who s ancestors were Sri Lankan and they change their religion to Muslims and Hindus due to migration from Arabs and indians...

There were many Sri Lankans and they were not Buddhist or it was not a Buddhist country before vijaya s arrival to Sri Lanka who brought Buddhism with him, and likewise there were many Sri Lankans who also likewise converted to Hinduism and Islam after the arrival of arab traders and Indians in. General..

People need to understand the history that this land was with many religions even before any of the overseas religions which came with each different set of People... Sri Lanka is known as Buddhist country because of its majority are Buddhist due to the spread of religion but other Sri Lankans are also 100% Sri Lankans who follow a different religion.

Let's join hands with everyone as we did before during many disasters to this nation and during those times no one was looking which religion a victim belongs but looked them as a equal human being.

That is ridiculous. Nowhere is it stated in the constitution of this nation that this country belongs to a religion! Just because most of the people on this island worship one religion, this country is not Buddhist. It is a free country, where all religions are equal. When the governing body of cricket in Sri Lanka is organising religious events and only focusing on one religion this is a BIG problem and discriminatory.

@ Anonymous (not verified) on May 15, 2017 - 09:29. Have you gone to school mate? If Sri Lanka is not a buddhist country, what is a buddhist country? Since this is a Buddhist majority country most of the main functions carried out based on buddhist traditions. That does not make any other realigions let down or anything. I am sure any buddhist would go to a church or hindu temple if it is necessary. I don't think Samathipala forced anyone to go to Tooth temple by force even though I am not a fan of Samathipala. I don't see any issue here unless the one who posted this poll wanted to bring the racism in to this.
