Thilina Kandamby recalled to Sri Lanka ODI squad

Thilina Kandamby, the 32-year old batsman, will hope to end a three-year hiatus from ODIs after he was named in the Sri Lanka squad for the first three matches against England. However, seamer Nuwan Kulasekara and Dinesh Chandimal have been excluded from the 15-member side..

Not convinced by Thilina's recall but I note he has had decent list A form. The worrying part to all this is the lack of batsman around that requires recalling a 32 year old who at best was a failure before. There doesnt appear to be too many bowlers comming through either.

I wonder if Chandimal and Seekuge got a bad deal here. YES YES YES Chandimal failed again! But it was during the harshly arranged Indian tour and in the last 2 matches ... Why not have given him an extended run? Seekuge did well in India considering the overall performance. Perhaps it is just that he is rested to try out Jeewan. Kulesekara's situation is unfortunate. He is as dependable when in form. But with his slower pace, if he is off, he is a liability. Above all, the main question is, will we get any play with all the rain? :)
