It has to do with the way

It has to do with the way that SL poorly manages it's young players. Lets take the recent cases of Randiv, Thisara and Mendis as an example. In the year before the WC, Randiv and Thisara were quite excellent, the best bowlers for their country, and yet were left out of the WC squad quite inexplicably. Randiv, bowled well in tests too. When brought back to the arena, confidence shorn, both of these players, did not perfrom as well. For Randiv, a bowler needing confidence, his skipper and part time bowler comes ahead of him and bowls more overs.Ajantha Mendis went off the boil. But, that series against WI, ahead of the WC showed some of his MoJo and was Lanka's best and most accurate bowler. He gets left out. He bambozled the Aussies in the 20/20 and gets left out of the test series and that too on a turner. When malinga Bandara was bowling quite well and that too against Aus and in county cricket he gets left out. This is no way to support and nurture your players, and the selection for Lanka teams, borders on the deranged, depending on the current flavor of the week or to be precise the interim committee or the selection cmte in town. In order for Lanka to deliver, the mess in the heirarchy and interference has to go.
