Shanaka, Aponso, Gamage and Weerakkody called up to Sri Lanka A squad

Apart from one member, this is a pretty fantastic selection. BUT how does Thirimanne merit selection at all, let alone being named captain? Do they want him in the senior team that badly?

I do hate to say this but I hope he does fail because he is taking up space in the XI for someone else who can actually take the opportunity.

I'm assuming that Shanaka will play, and I fully hope he takes the opportunity with both hands. Same with Asalanka (who was good with the ball but not so much with the bat), and Roshen Silva (though unfortunately he might get dropped for his poor form this series, unlike a certain someone else who gets rewarded for it),

Thirimanne captain.... lol... why not make him president of slc and let him decide to play all international matches without getting dropped... What a poor sanath is.. the guy score 4 and 3 in his last FIRST CLASS MATCH AND NOW GIVEN captaincy for his great innings... I would not even select THIRIMANNE for school team let alone first class and international ..

He kept occupying place in national team despite failures. Now he is doing the same in A team. Can't blame him its selectors fault.

Most of senior players have been injured. Selectors might try to bring Thirimanne into the national squad by giving every available opportunities like this.
