Sri Lanka name squad for T20 series against South Africa

Nine players will take flight to South Africa to play in the upcoming three T20s which will feature medium pace bowler Isuru Udana, who will return to the team after a lapse of one year. As revealed by Ceylon Today yesterday, uncapped player Thikshila de Silva will be a surprise inclusion...

Like I said earlier we all can see the difference between Sri Lankan and South African selectors. They have named a complete new look side and we have named only one newcomer I believe he is going to warm the bench like most new comers who come to the side. Seeku is not a good option on those pacy and bouncy condition in both batting and bowling point. Kulasekara may still have something in him specially in these conditions but why not we going to invest with new bowlers. I hope this isn't the ODI squad so expect Weerakody, Vandersay to be in it.

Why Prasanna? He's absolutely useless regardless of the conditions. And Tharanga? What T20 credentials does he have. Nice to see another fast bowling allrounder (though how fast he actually bowls is the real question), hope he gets a game. It's good that fringe players are getting game time, but Prasanna, Tharanga and probably Udana shouldn't even be in the squad. I thought Weerakkody was picked? What happened there? And Vandersay?

Unbelievable selection.

Too many bowlers are there, But only few batsmen. Don't know why players like Kapugedera, Milinda, Thisara and Dasun Shanaka were dropped.

It seems like selection has been done to loose the T20 series as well, not to win. It would be a great achievement SL could score at least 150 with this line up.
