Amila Saman better than Tharanga I must say.

But he handled it very well in Pak T20 series

I know u do not like Thisara very much. That is why u are putting this poll. But u cant say ur hero Dasun Shanaka is perfoming either. I cant remember any instance where Dasun played well with the bat other that half century he scored in the 3rd T20 match in pakistan.

But who are the other options do u have? Is it Chandimal, Thirimanne or even Dasun Shanaka?

Thisara can be a good T20 captain. However, after 125 ODIs Thisara's batting average is just 17.57. His ODI bowling economy rate is 5.78 and sometimes his bowling is very inconsistent. Once all of our best ODI batsmen (Dickwella, Tharanga, Kusal Mendis, Mathews, Asela, Kusal Janith, Sadeera, Danushka Gunathilaka, Thirimanne, Milinda Siriwardana etc) are fit to play there will be a big competition for first 7 positions.

Possibly Asela will occupy the all-rounder's position. Apart from Lakmal and Akila Dananjaya we need two more specialist bowlers. I doubt if Thisara's bowling is good enough to be one of them. Neither Thisara nor Dasun Shanaka deserves a permanent position in the ODI team as an all-rounder or a specialist bowler unless they improve in the future. A player who doesn't deserve a permanent position in the ODI team can't be the ODI captain.

No one can do better than Thilanga Sumathipala and Asanka Gurusingha. Thilanga Captain And Gurusingha Vice Captain. this double trouble couple is responsible for the Downfall of Srlankan Cricket. So let them lead the team back to it's glory or get out without destroying any further. "God Bless and Protect Srilankan Cricket" from these power greedy destroyers.
