Some players time to time reach their prime form, currently they are: UT, TP, KJP, Malinga. Some players sharpened their skills to reach next level: Dasun Shanaka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Akila. Some star youngsters already demonstrated their skills and at rapid growth stage and should be in Asia Cup/WC: Ashan, Aslanka, Avishka Fernando. Some caught in a lean patch: KM and Dikka. Some players are way passed their prime but always make into national ODI squad by making selectors under obligated due to strong personal ties with selectors: Mathew/Chandi. In reality, both of them are negative liability for WC. Please drop them and make either TP or Dikka as captain, and replace them with two alrounders with good fielding skills. Please give priority for the CURRENT SL BEST instead of personal favorites. This is why selection committee should made by individual thinkers rather than group of buddies or politicians like SJ.
