Mathews to lead Sri Lanka in ODIs against South Africa

Sri Lanka’s selectors named a 15-man squad on Tuesday (July 24) with Prabath Jayasuriya the only new face. Jayasuriya, 26, is a left-arm spinner who has 158 wickets from 47 first-class matches, and 36 wickets from 25 List A matches at an economy rate of 3.89.

World Champ, TP, who is at prime run, should have been the Captain for this ODI series. On the other hand, SLC practices ‘good spirit of sport’ and want to be hospitable allowing RSA to whitewash SL in ODI series. Obviously, master-mind of Nose Dive who was powered & guided by negative dark energy, was picked to lead. In fact, Lakmal powered by his Lucky Angel, could have brought another series win if he was picked to lead too. Why ICC ignored to ban, SL selector committee entirely? the job is half-done?

So the merry go round is back at Mathews and of course as we already know, there is a very real chance he will not last the whole series. And I think most of us called for Mathews to be replaced after his last stint and he himself stepped down. So why do we keep doing it? No options I presume.
