Chief selector says Mathews has been cautioned

"As selectors, we don’t have any control over the IPL. We can’t tell them what to do and what not to do. He may be thinking that when he bowls at the IPL, his value is more as he goes as an all-rounder," De Mel told ‘The Island’.

De mel has a point, Matthews has to decide what is more important, if he keeps bowling, there is a good chance that he may miss the important games for SL like the WC final and CW Final. and that is creating unnessasary problems to the team at a vital time.

Matthews has a big future ahead with Sri Lanka cricket and I think he is short sighted here if he is bowling in the IPL. is he can recover well there will be many more IPL's that he can play

But it's not like Mathews doesn't bowl for SL, he always comes on and bowls his heart out when its required. However the problem is that he has to manage his workload,even in the ipl. As he gets injured so frequently he probably shouldn't bowl in the ipl so that is fit for international duty

Why not ask for a comment from His Manager Charlie Austin about it.
