It's really unfair if he was selected based on the franchise cricket ..

Don't think he did any significant contribution in franchise cricket to his respective teams. Here and there he took some wickets but if anyone has seen those matches those wickets are mainly due to batsmen aggressiveness rather than the quality of the balls. Jayaruriya says he has learnt things but he hasn't. Otherwise how can Pathirana like players in the team?

I am watching the game and Thisara is handing out a real treat to Bangldeshi batsmen buy its not xmas yet. How on earth selectors can pick so many bowlers and none of them are good enough to be in any side? Sachith Pathirana, Lakmal, Lahiru Kumara? Seriously? I think Sanath has lost the plot.

Not sure what is going on with this guy but it sure is a sign of desperation. We dropped him and now he is back - just like he has done so many times before. Now he gets a 50 and I guess secures his place for the next year. It really is frustrating but when you have limited choices I guess anything goes.
