I hope that now the selectors will give Mendis a good long run other than switching between spinners as if they would burn to dust if they played more than two games in a row!

Randiv, Dilruwan, Mendis, Sachithra, Weerakon, Herath my gosh I've lost track!!

As far as I see, looking at the future as well, it should be either Mendis or Sachithra/Randiv.

It's sad, Weerakon deserves a long run too, the least that the man deserves after all the years of hard work that's gone un-noticed. But I doubt that he'll get it.
