Boru class CHANDI 's picture

With CHANDIMAL in the team our expectations are low as he is Single handedly capable of losing the match for Sri Lanka from winning position. IF OUR OPENERS GETS OUT EARLY THEN FOR SURE CHANDIMAL WONT REBUILD BUT WILL FOLLOW THE OPENERS LEAVING SRI LANKA 3 down in first ten overs as usual and Mathews is not so good before the 30th over which will sink Sri Lanka further. CHANDIMAL is a very inconsistent selfish player who only gets his fifties when team is not under pressure even then he is very slow to score.

Brilliant boru class.wish u were the selector. Chandimal has all the boru luck. He always strikes at the right time. He cant bat and see how lousy a captain he is today compared to the brilliant captaincy of tharanga today. He may have bribed sumathi for a spot in CT. What do u think? Would like to hear your expert opinion.

Yes he was dropped when he was struggling at 7 off 19 balls, if it was international match that's it, plus he survived a inside edge and he got his 100 just because gAlle had one fast bowler in lakmal and no other frontline paceman, he can't score runs with swinging ball or score runs Against quality fast bowlers like rabada, Cummings or even Starc but he can score runs only against club level bowlers like military mediums like Kulasekera and skill less lakmal.

MATE he faced spinners for 95% of his innings which he won't face in UK. I M SURE CHANDIMAL WILL BE ANOTHER THIRIMANNE STORY IN CT2017 as HE CLEARLY IS A CLUB LEVEL PLAYER...

PEOPLE LIKE R STUPID TO RATE HIM HGH OR EITHER U R PAID COMMENTER BY CHANDI , CAN U TELL ME HOW MANY QUALITY FAST BOWLERS HE FACED AGAINST GALLE TEAM???? THERE WAS NO QUALITY FAST BOWLER FOR GALLE , HE STILL STRUGGLED TO SCORE RUN A BALL HE FINISHED HIS INNINGS LESS THAN RUN A BALL AFTER FACING PART TIME SPINNERS AND ORDINARY CLUB LEVEL BOWLERS AND THE BEST OF THE LOT WAS USELESS LAKMAL WHILE SHANAKA WAS BOWLING DEATH OVERS SAYS WHY HE MANAGED TO SCORE THE HUNDRED, IF HE FACED ANY QUALITY BOWLER IN THE MATCH HE WOULD GOT OUT BEFORE 10 runs as HE NEARLY DID TO MALINDA P WHO WAS THE ONLY QUALITY BOWLER FROM GALLE SIDE, LUCK AND GOOD BOWLERS WERE ON HIS SIDE WHILE ALL PART TIMERS WERE ON THARANGA S SIDE...

WE SAW EVEN A ROOKIE LIKE W HASARANGA WAS SMASHING THE PART TIMERS LIKE DASUN WHILE SELFISH CHANDIMAL WAS EAGER TO GET HIS 100 WITHOUT GOING FOR BIG SHOT COZ OF HIS INABILLITY TO PLAY THE BIG SHOTS, IF YOU HAVE PROPER SENSE NO ONE ON EARTH WILL CHEST THUMP A HUNDRED AGAINST A LOW QUALITY ATTACK UNLESS U R CHANDIMAL OR HIS FAN.

EXPERT VIEW's picture

@kalu5678. Yes Boru class I agree with you, chandimal fans are happy today because he scored a 100 against a quality attack .....LOL .... Hahaaaaaahaaa...

And the quality attacks best bowler is LAKMAL N DEATH OVER SPECIALISTS ARE DASUN SHANAKA AND OTHER PART TIMERS

...hahaaaa ... see how happy chandimal fans are... LET CHANDIMAL FANS CELEBRATE TODAY BECAUSE THEY WONT HAVE ANY CELEBRATION AFTER CT2017 FAILURES AND AT THAT TIME THEY WILL HAVE ONLY EXCUSES LIKE THEIR CHANDI PUTTHA AND THEY WILL GET READY TO DEFEND HIM BY POINTING FINGERS AT OTHER PLAYERS TO BLAME.

YES THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS HOW HE GOT A SPOT IN T20 AND BECAME THE CAPTAIN AND ALL CRICKET FANS KNOWS THE WAY HOW HE BLASTED HUNDREDS INT20 matches IN LAST T20 WORLD CUP TOGETHER WITH THIRI THE WORRY.

I HAVE TO AGREE WITH FANS CRITICISING CHANDIMAL ITS NOT BECAUSE OF HATE ITS BECAUSE HE SIMPLY DOES NOT BELNGS TO ODI OR T20 TEAM, SIMPLE AS THAT.

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.. that's all i have to say.. have a good day guys.
