Dilshan will not Captain for long, he is no good with the players or his behaviour in certain countries. All who remember an incident with an underage girl will know what I mean. No means NO MR DILSHAN and you know that girls that young are off bounds. Just because you were overseas doesn't mean r a p e is legal you should be locked up!

How can a man with such serious charges against his name have Captaincy of SL? No means NO MR DILSHAN and the underage girl incident will haunt you forever.

Is this the behaviour that we expect of someone in a position such as Dilshan? why is he still Captain of the great SL cricket team, why is he still even in the team? His behaviour is well documented in media and he should be immediately stood down.Give Matthews the Captaincy now, they are on a losing streak so no better time for change than NOW.

With an average of over 52 per outing in tests, why would Thilan needs Sanga around as captain to stay in the squad? I think his past performance speaks for itself. Any other team would gladly add him.

I would agree that he was not the best fit for the ODI squad, especially for the world cup. Then again, Chamara Silva also found a way to get into that squad.
