Dear Mr.X

I would recommend you to add the names of Isuru Udana and Binura Fernando to make it more realistic :P

I think Sri Lanka is the only country to have 31 players in a preliminary squad

Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka

These two players are picked due to ignorance and incompetancy in persons responsible. Their averages are clear proofs for their unsuitability.

they cannot be considered as talented players, with their defective techniques were brought into the Side at a very young age in giving too many opportunities, a time when, one can find far better outstanding batters than them in dozens.

To represent a Country one should possess a consistent school careers. It is questionable Gunathilaka being picked for all formats of the Game despite his poor show as a batter and also ignoring his poor Batting averages & also his questionable discipline off the field.

Why we need these not-so-fast bowlers [Chamika Karunaratne, Vishwa Fernando,Dushmantha Chameera, Shehan Madushanka ]

of small physique in the team ? Who are yet to prove their worth even at Domestic level.What we need is more quality spinners rather than Fas-bowlers.

It seems officials are very much ignorant of the outstanding schoolboy Cricketers and theirs' continuous discrimination against proven outstanding Cricketers such as MalindaPushpakumara, SachithraSenanayake of 2007; BhanukaRajapaksha, RomeshBhuddhika of 2010; SadunWeerakkddy, LahiruMadusahanka, Tharindu Khaushalya, of 2012; PriyamalPerera, MinodBhanuka, HashanDumindu, BinuraFernando of 2014; WaniduHasaranga, LasithEmbuldeniya of 2016 & HareenBhuddhila, HasithBoyagoda the leading run-getters & wicket-takers of 2017& 2018
