If Sri Lanka play chandimal ,sl will NOT GO TO FAR INTO THE TOURNAMENT, SRI LANKA SHOULD PLAY SADEERA SAMARAWICKRAMA INSTEAD USELESS SELFISH CHANDIMAL.

Chandimal made 5 50s on trott when he last played in ENG

SQUARE CUT's picture

All those fifties were useless selfish fifty which did not bring any wins in England that's y Sri Lanka was white washed 5-0, in those batting paradise CHANDIMAL was batting at a strike rate of 80 while all other batsman were going over hundred . He played those innings for himself to stay in team that's y he could not win even a single match for Sri Lanka after using up many balls, he takes about 70 balls for fifty on a pitch where the opponents have scored more than 320 while CHANDI scores a selfish fifty of 70 balls at his rate the Sri Lanka will score only 225 if he faces all three hundred balls , STRIKNG AT 75% on batting paradise is not a big achievement it's a selfish to play like that while other players lose their wickets trying to do catch up work for CHANDIMALs SLOPPY INNIngs. through out CHANDIMALs career his fifties have not been match winning ,he just does not have the match winning ability, for eg MARVEN ATTAPATHU WAS A SLOW SCORER BUT WHEN HE GETS A FIFTY HE MAKES SURE TO GET A HUNDRED AT A GOOD PACE AND HE CAN SCORE FAST WHEN NEEDED UNLIKE CHANDIMAL WHO MOTIVE IS TO SCORE FOR HIMSELF, HE IS PLAYING THE BRAND OF PRE- T20 Era cricket,

People like misbah ul haq, dravid ,Kalis even ASANKA GURUSINGHE were slow but if they need to score fast the can catch up later but not this self centred chandimal, he faces to many dot balls and scores at least 3 runs slower than required per over when chasing and then scores a silly looking risky fifty facing 75 balls and gets out leaving the team in disastrous position. This is been happening for too long now. Sri Lanka has enough players to replace CHANDIMAL the selfish runs accumulator who does not CARE ABOUT WINNING .

I hope Sri Lanka will drop CHANDIMAL for champions trophy or Sri Lanka will lose most matches without giving a fight.

CHANDIMAL SUPPORTERS CAN U PLEASE POINT A SINGLE INNINGS THAT CHANDIMAL HAS PLAYED FOR SRI LANKA TO WIN A GAME ON HIS OWN???

He has only played one innings in a test match vs india by getting twice lucky through DRS on ZERO ,in that match he scored 169 which Sri Lanka won DUE TO INDIA DROPPING TWO CATCHES OF CHANDIMAL AS WELL . Except that LUCKY innings .what has he done to warrant a place in the ODI/T20 teams.

HE IS NOT A ODI PLAYER , he lacks technique,temperament and power further he is nuisance to other team mates as he gives stupid suggestions from behind the wicket as he himself is not doing anything in the team. His keeping is one of the worst as there are many keeper batsman who can do a better job than CHANDI.
