Not really as I was hoping we would finally make the change of not picking Tharanga and Chandi in limited overs cricket. Its time to move on and look for a different brand of limited over cricket and at best only one of these two should play, but preferably neither for now.

Yes chandimal and UPUL THARANGA are waste in ODI CRICKET.. CHANDI IS GETTING READY FOR HIS FAILIRE IN CT2017 n will come up with unbelievable excuses as usual by putting the blame on other batsmen. he can't play quality fast bowling , he can play only spin and medium pacers like lakmal n kula, not Starc ,Cummings or even rabada, shows his quality

My hunch is that selectors aren't gonna play chandi.. Otherwise why hand over vice captaincy to upul... Like @stormy suggested, i wouldn't prefer both of them in the team as well but I'll take upul over chandi.. At least he's got a great record in England..

Overall im ok with the team, but i would of liked to have seen a proper offspinner in the side. Other than that , they chose the right players.

Did you guys watch the provincial 50over tourney? Chandimal is on good form.

For your information Chandimal fans .. Chandimal was drooped twice in twenties in Provincial tournament final.. one time by slip fielder other time by Seeku.. both were very easy catches coming from very idiotic shots from Chandimal.. and of course his strike rate in whole game was like 60 ( very modern day strike rate :P ) and he scored bunch of his runs in death overs when only good fast bowler in Galle not available due to injury ( Suranga ). But no problem let him play Champions trophy, after series of worthless innings (by that i mean 50s with shitty strike rate that will get other SL batsmen have to sacrifice their wickets trying to up run rate ) then even "Chooti putha" fans wont deny his uselessness.. thats all i have to say.. have a good day guys. And final words to Chandimal fans.. if you try to defend him base on his Provincial tournament final's 100, at least watch the whole match.

It's funny THAT RANDIMAL FANS are chest thumping for low class 100 against part time spinners and funny is that death bowlers like SHANAKA (...LOL... ) are scored singles in death overs MEANWHILE HASARANGA ,SENANAYAKE WAS HITTING BIG SHOTS WHILE CHANDIMAL STRUGGLED TO HIT BOUNDARIES EVEN AT DEATH OVERS AS HE WAS EYEING HIS SELFISH LUCKY 100 WITH TWO DROP CHANCES IN 20 s AND still he finished his innings less than a run a ball in a match where 300 plus was scored, he accelerated his innings but that was by scoring singles at death overs as that moment the team needed boundaries.

CHANDIMAL is the most selfish player to play for Sri Lanka ,HE WASTED MANY OPPORTUNITIES IN T20 and the funny thing was that he was made a captain in T20 and now he is riding his FREE RUN IN ODI TEAM WHICH HE CLEARLY DOES NT DESERVE.

THE MOST FUNNY AND EYE PAINING THING WAS HIS CELEBRATION AFTER A 100 AGAINST LOWEST QUALITY BOWLING ATTACK AND THE PROOF FOR THAT IS LAKMAL IS THERE BEST MEDIUM PACER AS HE HIMSELF IS BELOW INTERNATIONAL STANDARD AND PART TIMERS LOKE DASUN AND OTHER part time SPINNERS WERE USED .WHO ON EARTH WILL CELEBRATE A 100 WITH TWO DROP CATCHES AND AGAINST LOW QUALITY BOWLERS EXCEPT MEDIOCRE CHANDIMAL AND HIS USELESS FANS.

CHANDIMAL AND THIRIMANNE ARE TWO USELESS PLAYER WHO SHOULD PLAY ONLY CLUB CRICKET OR RETIRE FROM INTERNATIONAL AS THESE TWO HAVE RUINED THE NATIONAL TEAM AND PULLING IT DOWN TO ITS LOWEST POINT IN SL CRICKET. BOTH PLAYERS WERE RUINED THE T20 team and NOW RANDIMAL IS RUINING THE NATIONAL TEAM AFTER DRAGGING THE T20 to its lowest point.

QUESTION :DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW MANY MAN OF THE MATCHES HAS CHANDIMAL GOT IN HIS CAREER FOR A TOP ORDER PLAYER???

ANSWER: LOWEST NUMBER OF MAN OF MATCHES IN THE WORLD IN ODI/TEST CRICKET EVER FOR A PLAYER WHO HAS PLAYED(wasted) MORE THAN 100 Matches . THIS STATS ITSELF SHOWS WHAT FREE LOADER CHANDIMAL IS.

WE SUPPORTERS OF SL CRICKET NOT SUPPORTERS OF SIR DON DINESH BRADMAN CHANDIMAL.

Now let his fans celebrate with CHANDIMAL his great 100 against Galle against world class attack like ONCE A UPON A TIME SOMEONE IN THE NAME OF THIRIMANNE FANS CELEBRATED HIS ONLY TEST 100 AGAINST A LOWLY BANGLA A FEW YEARS AND NEVER CELEBRATED AFTER THAT BUT WAS GIVING EXCUSEs.

NOW LETS WAIT FOR THE EXCUSES OF CHANDIMAL FANS FOR THE SURE FAILURE IN CT2017 as he will BE DROPPED HOPEFULLY atleast AFTER CT2017 like THIRIMANNE.

UNTIL THEN LET CHANDIMAL FANS CELEBRATE HIS GREATEST HUNDERED FOR THE NEXT DECADE.

I ASK HIS FANS WHEN WAS HIS LAST ODI MAN OF THE MATCH PERFORMANCE???? CAN U TELL ME HOW MANY MANY YEARS OF MATCHES AGO.

Considering all, i think this is the best squad selectors have selected in a long while... If i had picked a squad, only changes i would have made is to bring in sanjaya and danushka/dananjaya in for chandimal and kule/pradeep.. I feel we need a offspinning allrounder even if we don't have a genuine offspinner .. And sanjaya is very impressive... I wouldnt drop upul now as we need some solidity at top... Can't have top 4 very inexperienced...

Awesome. I am sure you brilliant guys will agree that Chandimal must have bribed sumathi and he is in sumathi back pocket to have picked up man of match for final and player of series.you guys should probe match fixing. Bowlers were asked to go easy on Chandi and fielder's were asked to drop catches or let boundaries go through their legs so that ChandI would get both of these awards and take that fancy ride to CT with his wife. Maybe she is connected - can someone check on that. BTW all these commentators, boru Roshan, idiot Saith, simon were on this whole shenanigans too just hyping Chandi so he could get these awards so they look good. Wonder how much Sumathi made on it, Maybe it's a larger part of a Yahaplanya conspiracy deal, How much of this did Maithri know.
