Another Question is : if They are only shorter formats players in his book, then why he didn't pick them for Nidahas trophy, where he picked test players like Suranga Lakmal, Nuwan Pradeep and Dhananjaya de Silva?

One thing Labbaroy is a cardboard hero. How is just an ordinary fast bowler become a chief selector? is he qualified enough to select a national team? that is the main reason. an educated, honest, who has a good straight back bone and speaks the truth must be a chief selector not just a man who doesn't have good cricketing career, just an ordinary medium fast bowler who speaks English can become the chief selector. when a man who is not suitable enough to handle a position like the end result is going to be worst. this is what has happened to srilankan cricket now. this man is just doing what the Chairman and the Minister say. this man does not want srilanka cricket to flourish. no matter what happen to srilankan cricket he wants to protect his job only. he doesn't care whether he select a person who has even never ever played cricket he just nod to whatever the top says. so if this continues like this i don't think Hathurusingha will continue, Hathu doesn't want to tarnish his name with a politicized management who does the selection according to their will without giving the opportunity to talanted inform cricketers.

whoever published this post he is an such a idiot. munaweera, vikum & Bhanuka are shorter format players. even they will accept it. there are better longer format player than them. if they are longer format players why they were unable to become among top 10 players in recently concluded premiere league tier A tournament. players who are included to the provintial tournament who performed well in club tournament. also in this post author saying that lakmal, pradeep, dhanajaya are test players. I don't believe that. dhanajaya is a player who can represent in any format just like mendis. also lakmal & pradeep are best available bowlers in srilanka in any format. even coach agreed with that. also inclusion of thisara is chandika's request. because he is a big player for srilanka in 2019 WC & coach said that thisara need to improve certain aspects for his game going forward. specially patience to play a long inning. although munaweera, vikum, bhanuka are shorter format players you can only include 15 players for a squad. specially munaweera failed in last few international matches he faced.

Mr. Graeme Labrooy did you pass at least your O/L? Is colonial English is your only qualification? If you don't understand cricket, kindly contact Malinga, he will teach you.

Agree with certain points in this post.

One of the main reasons in our failure at the Nidahas trophy was the poor selections. Our seam bowling was pathetic and non of pacies had the control.

I think we should have gone with some one like vikum Sanjaya instead of Pradeep and Chameera .

And other main mistake made by the selectors was appointing chandimal as captain in T20s. He has proven so many times that his batting style is not suitable for T20s, but selectors are still persisting with him
