Thissara. Senanayaka, Sheehan selection can,t justify. Dilshan, Chandimal not at their best. Kulasekara, Malinga. Hearth recovering from injuries. Dickwella, Dasun, Vandersay new comers. My conclusion is we may make quarter finals. From there it is tough ask. Guaratna could have been the better choice for Thissara or Senanayaka. This is not a promising squad.

cannot agree with the selections of Thisara and senanayake . Instead, Maharoof and Randiv should have been picked

Feel sorry for Gunathilaka. Being only a batsman and recent poor performance with the bat coupled with poor fielding may have done him. But he is a talented bat. Hope he will do better in the future.


Being wicket keepers helped Chandimal and Dickwella.

Experience counted for Dilshan. I think other teams will attack Dilshan with spin and he will fail. He might gift his wicket with the DILSCOOP.

Jayasuriya is there because of his bowling.

Malinga is in because of the captaincy and the past glory and we have to pray he will perform . This is not a sure thing.

Thisara is included as a POTENTIAL? all rounder.

Senanayaka got lucky.

Vandersay ?

The rest give me some sort of confidence.

Although this is not a promising team as Amilasaman pointed out, strange things can happen in T20. So, lets hope SL will win both Asia cup and WC T20.

Please don't send Chandimal at no.03 if SL bat first or target is above 150.

They pick bloody niroshan dickwella and shehan Jayasuriya but not Thirimanne and gunathilaka. Thjs is absolutely ridiculous.

Cant please everyone I am afraid folks but I dont think we are going to win the cup with any of the non-picks. At the end of the day its going to come down to the guts of the experienced guys who are all in. What would help is a few guys to put up some decent performances so we dont have to keep looking for others that are hidding out there and somehow dont make selections.
