Why is he replacing Siriwardana? I agree Siriwardana has been awful but Sadeera should not bat lower than number 4. The main reason for our batting issues is with Chandimal and Thirimanne. They waste too many balls in there innings. I would rather have someone out for 2 off 5 balls rather than being out for 18 off 45 balls.

Yeah, our stupid team mgmt, coaches, and selectors have failed to see the root cause of batting collapse was due to chandimal and thirimanna. Both are just playing selfishly for a place in ODI squad. Chandimal may be decent in Tests, but he shouldn't be allowed to play ODIs at all -- at least he should prove his worth in domestic arena and/or IPL/CPL/BPL for white ball cricket. Oh yes, Kapugedara is the other one -- he may not be selfish but he has no temperament (among other issues) and virtually a useless middle order batsman

If these selectors had some brain, they would have kept Sadeera after his pleasing knock in the second Test in with the ODI squad guessing a potential scenario like this, had he been there Sadeera would have played in the third game. But of course we know they don't have 'it'. Why Danushka will not play tomorrow? He was due to be named in the T20 squad so should be match ready.The selectors should not pick Chandimal ever again for the ODIs, Jayasuriya said it so openly. That is why I think Chandimal heaped praise on these selectors after the Test victory taking a swipe at Jayasuriya. But Chandimal's performance again confirmed Jayasuriya (& all of us) are hundred percent right. Similarly Thrimanne should never be in the Test squad again. If they include him for the Indian Tests the fans should revolt against this set of selectors too.

Sadeera should open with Tharanga, dickwella can come down and bat, him falling after making a quick 25 or 30 is not good enough, let mendis bat at 1 down and tirimmane at 2 down...

who's that fucker introduce chandimal to the sri lanka cricket.
chandimal fucker is not a cricket player. He is the one destroy the 3rd match against pakistan. So many dots belongs his names.

Kapugedera need to comer early.
prasanna must included to the team.

chasing is the good option instead of batting first.
we don't have the talented bowlers to defend runs.
