Playing roulette to lift a rambling team

If current form is the only yardstick for selection, the 23-year-old Dinesh Chandimal may not have found a place in the Sri Lanka squad that was named to face the visiting South Africans in a five-match ODI and T20 series, leave along leading the side.

That just about sums it up ! for once a "journo" so has said what HAS to be said. Albeit in a little known paper.

We are just going to throw two matches away and possibly the series by the inability of our selectors to think proactively and make the changes that are required.

Mahela should be given the captaincy on a temporary basis and Kusal Janith should be in the squad and opening with Dilshan or Tharanga. Thisara should be back in the side and a mystery spinner is a must against South Africa who have a fear of spinners.

Ajantha Mendis may be too tame an offering !
