Why can't the administrators push Sanga

Yes, why can't the administrators push Sanga to return? If Sri Lanka ever needed him, this is the moment. Sanath returned after test retirement on request of the selection committee. That No.4 spot is his and Mathews should follow after that. We've been giving Prasanna an extended run without considering Jeevan Mendis at all. He's doing well in England. Bring him back.

Heard Sanath is going to resign as the Head of selectors. Good call. Please bring back Kapila Wijegunawardene. Also please drop Ranjith 'sort of' Fernando from the team Manager position.

Lakmal never looks threatening, but he never gets dropped. Vikum Sanjaya looks pretty economical. Draft him. We can play Malinga occasionally since he is coming towards the end of his career.

There are so many big strong fast bowlers in the domestic circuit like Vishwa Fernando, Binura Fernando and Kasun Rajitha. Please give them a chance rather than too friendly Lakmal.

Thisara's spot belongs to Dasun Shanaka. With all due respect, I hope this is the last time Thisara played for Sri Lanka. A person who can't use his brain isn't required at International level.

Danushka looks inconsistent, he's a good fielder, but drops a catch every now and again. Good coaches can transform him I guess. In a well balanced squad for a series, there should be a couple of seam bowlers, a good swing bowler [a left arm bowler maybe], a couple of spinners who can run sharply [Chinamen or a cutter bowler or whoever], a leg spinner and 4-5 all rounders [pace bowling and spinning both] to suit any condition. Simple as as that !!! It's not rocket science.

If the selectors have the brains to tick at least most of those boxes, we'll make a balanced team. Instead we have 4-5 wicket keepers in the team. Happens only in Sri Lanka :( We really really miss Dhammika Prasad. He was the man.
