SL players with A-contract are mediocre players, and don’t expect them to score big (Mathew) or take wickets (Herath & Lakmal). They did their major role by helping to renew lethargic administrator terms for another year to enjoy filling more into their pockets. Meanwhile, the best players are either given sub-standard contracts or sidelined and SLC continues nosediving. Promote Mathew & Herath to national senior veteran spectator league with super A-contracts. Morons never learn that petty politics have no place in int’l cricket. Each game should be aimed for both winning & team building for all formats. Limit KJP only for short format until WC. My 11 for next: Opens with Dhana deS & Udawatta, Roshen, Dinesh (capt), KM, Dickka, Akila Dananjaya, Jeffrey Vandersay, Dilruwan Perera, Lahiru Kumara, Asitha Fernando. Fill the top order with low risk taking batsmen. Send the confident strikers late in the order.
