This must be a new standard in Sri Lanka Cricket? Don't you have to prove your self as a batsman? I guess only in Sri Lanka!

He's still too immature/rash, remember how he got out in the last t20? Trying to hit a 6 straight away after losing 2 quick wickets is not the mindset of a captain; compared to matthews who rotated the strike, got settled then went for it. We definitely two captains, but we need to groom the second captain. Therefore keep Angelo captain in all 3 formats, but have seperate vice captains and then let one take over for limited over/test cricket which ever is more effective.

i think its a good decision. let the young ones take responsibility and let go of the relics. its an investment for the future. the only way to find out if some one can get a job done is to give them the job. if he s not up to it you can always try some1 els!
