Those words... “Money can only buy you great infrastructure. But a strong domestic competition can build you a Test team for the future.”

Why do we continue to keep talking about this issue when its been obvious for a long long time. We said this many years ago when we couldnt find a proper batsman and tried many including Kapu, Chamara Silva and list goes on. Finally Thiri and Chandi came along and we all know how well that has worked out. Now our answer to Sanga and Mahela are Mubarak and Tharanga!!! Please enough said - can we do something about it. Again we have seen so many plans being flung around - lets implement one and move forward.

Stating point - you cant have club level strucutre as our first class cricket. Next you cant have 147 clubs runnig SLC. This is the starting point, anywhere else and your pissing in to the wind.

What about poor selections. Mubarak never scored a test fifty after playing 20 plus innings in test cricket. Kusal Perera scored two fifties in his debut game.
