Herath, Mendis included for first two West Indies ODIs

Muttiah Muralitharan has been rested from the Sri Lankan side for the first two one-dayers of the upcoming five-match series against West Indies. Rangana Herath, who has impressed in the Test matches, has taken Murali's place for the games that will be held at the new stadium in Hambantota.

Thanks for posting. Chandimal left out but may play in the remaining games.

Good to see MP sanath not in the team. I was afraid that appointing notorious uneducated Aluthgamage as SP was a ploy to bring MP Sanath back into the team

They had to include S'weera bcoz of what he said few days ago.I wouldn't give any credit for including him coz he shouldn't have been dropped in the first place.

God of Talent (Kapugedara) is still there.

LOL at dropping Chandimal again.I admire how IND give opportunities to their young players.SL drop them after they perform.

@Hilal
Machan,isn't that what people thought when Aravinda left him out of Asia cup after that hundred & sent him for AUS 'A' tour? Everybody expected Chandimal to join the team after AUS 'A' tour.The reason Aravinda presented to media was that Chandimal can't make the first XI therefore it's better for him to tour AUS rather than sitting on a bench at Dambulla Lol

Chandimal won't play the WC by the looks of it.Great man Kapugedara might play LMAO

But they played him on the tour to Australia where he failed due to a bad decision by the umpire (given out LBW when ball pitched outside leg). The move to leave him out of the rest of the games in Australia was the captain and team management on tour's call, neh?

I think Chandimal will play in the last few ODIs and you never know Vaas could be in as well.

Yeah captain,coach & selector on tour.All of them are in the same boat Lol.That's why a failure like Kapugedera is still there while S'weera got dropped for scoring 2 match winning hundreds (Something that even S'kara & Mahela haven't done) after his return to ODIs.Chandimal should have played every tournament for SL since that ZIM tour.Could have gained some experience before the WC.That guy is a match winner.ATM we don't have any apart from Dilshan & Mathews in terms of batting.
