Useless..Now we have lost a prime all-rounder due to an prolonged injury..How can he be Sri Lanka's future Captain when he is suffering so many injuries...he is just 24 and you are young you should stay fit not get injured..bye bye Angelo the all-rounder..welcome Angelo the Batsman.

Sri Lankans think this guy is some fast bowler, why was he opening the bowling in a TEST MATCH IN INDIA ?. stupidity or desperation ?

He is simply a one day fill in bowler at 80 mph he has no chance of surviving onslaughts of modernday batsmen.

WHAT HE HAS is a sound cricketing BRAIN, GUTS and a great EYE.

So, use him purely as a BATSMAN and CAPTAIN!

Looks like Cricinfo has changed the story now. It says he will miss 1st Test not the series.

baseless accusation by 'anonymous'who's cricketing point still escapes me. Talk with facts and figures or simply shut up. your mindless rants counts for nothing..
