What about Kusal Mendis?
Yesterday's performance in the field as a bowling, fielding unit and the captaincy is by far the worst I've witnessed in the last 15-20 years. The Daily Mirror was right! RIP Sri lankan Cricket! You've lost a fan.
No prizes for guessing, this a poll submited by cricket statsguru,where chandimal is labeled as pathetic even after doing well this tour.
This guy must be a pant not a cricket fan
what a joke.. the team is not doing well due to youngsters, who are not clicking well in all three departments to do their job. Ex: Dhanushka G's -Golden Duck, promising youngster like K Mendis's short stay at No3 , Dhanjaya de S consonant failure in Limited over format.
Tharanga can't do it alone when the rest are crumbling at the top , especially when chasing 300+ score. He perished trying to catch up the run rate single handedly dealing with the new ball (with no support from No1 or 3.
How many dot balls wasted by Mendis before getting out? If not for Chandi's 50 the defeat would have been more humiliating.
All those three players should be in the ODI squad.
Jeewantha I'm not a hater of Chandimal. But I'm a passionate cricket lover of SL cricket. I got to hate Chandimal because of after 7 years of international experience he has not improved anything. Thats all.
Just touch ur brain and think. As Chandimal doing anything significant for the team. When did he last played a match winning knock for SL. Just putting hear and there 50's after consuming 80 and 90 deliveries want win u matches.
Arent any other player got a disadvantage because of him.
Just look at yesterday performance. Bowl is going through his legs to boundaries when he is keeping. If I'm correct he has concenced close to 12 runs due to his pathetic keeping.
Then when he came to bat how many inside and outside edges he scored runs. Close to 50% of runs came through inside and outside edge boundaries which gone very close to stumps. This is the way he scores runs in many occasions.
Why he can't be a driving force of the team with such a experience. Look at Tamim, Saqib, Mustafiq they all doing well and winning matches for Ban.
Honestly Even Ban young batsman like Shabir Rahmann, Soumay Sarkar and 19 year old Mosaddek Hossain are far far better batsman than Chandimal. Please ask honestly from ur mind. Don't u think Jeewantha even these younger Bangladesh batsman better player than Chandimal? Just answer my question
This is why I'm saying drop Chandimal and give chances to next generation who can make rapid improvements unlike Chandimal after 7 years. 19-20 year old Players like Sadeera Samarawickrama, Charith Asalanka, Avishka Fernando, Kamindu Mendis, Jehan Daniels waiting in the wings to get an opportunity to play for SL
Add to that list is good attacking wicket keeper batsman Vishwa Chaturanga also
