We have abundant talent in this country to form 3 separate teams for Test, OD and T20. May be 1-3 players will fit in all 3 formats.

There are youngsters who have stamped their mark at the highest level.

That's my point. Why are we relaying on same players to play all formats? There are players who have never been given an opportunity like Lahiru Milantha, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Minod Bhanuka, Yasodha Lanka, Pabsara Waduge are just a few I could name been ignored by selectors. Not sure what Aponso did to be completely ignored by the selectors?
