What a disgrace!

Sri Lanka cricket has reached an all time low. Not through a lack of talent but a total lack of all other aspects of the game. Be it administration, management, coaching or medical attention, every aspect has been found wanting and our team has never given a poorer account of itself than on this current tour of New Zealand. Mathews seems to have lost his head, the coach seems to be way out of his depth and what is a guy who never made it as a cricketer or made it in a day job doing as manager ? I feel really sorry for young up and coming talents like Chameera, Vandersay and the young batsmen who are starting in this environment. I guess the upcoming election for the board will be another farce with rogues and blatant abusers of power and position assuming office once again. What a failure Yahapalanaya has been is showing through first in cricket with more to follow, for sure.

The one thing that remains constant is the "SL has plenty of talent" song. I wish to add to the above statement and SL are lacking in ALL aspects including talent. If we had talent where are they now and where have they been say the last year? Also all the talent in the world is of little use every other aspect is broken - the talent will count for little.

We do however have plenty of talent in destroying a good thing through poor administration!

This is the curse they are suffering for totally ruining a well established,experienced players career by virtually shutting off opportunities he earned in Tests & desrved in Odis for longer than two years. 5 top order batters couldn't survive 10 overs in 2 back to back odis.

The opener Tharanga(34av in NZ)they have suppressed, holds the highest 1st wicket partnership(match-winning)record of 200+ runs in Nz & stayed over 10 overs & 50 runs up in each odi (as No1 opener) accomplishing his job, to date since 2007 best ever SL Odi series leveled in NZ! He was denied any chance to play in NZ since then, including the 3 recent tours(not even NZ-A).

SL deserved this hulmiliation for the sins they commit.
