Maybe he deserves a place in the ODI squad but, as Marcian also points out, not sure if he should be VC, when Sangakkara was the vice captain in our last Test match. We had the option of turning to a senior player to fill in as VC until Angelo Mathews fully recovered, no?

Your facts are good, there is no problem at all including Kanda in the team, but that is not the problem, does your facts indicate in any means that he deserved to be the Vice Captain ?? I Would say NO

Boys like i told u ,this info is first hand his VC because mathews is not a certainity. if mathews is not made VC in our next tour then we have a point to argue.

Hilal, yes i get your point. this is why i say our cricket selection is not consistant. Kumar captained the second test after dilshan injury it should have been thilan his apparently the VC for test series. a complete u turn yesterday with Thilan captaining Essex game with sanga in the side. all fairness thilan overall as a batsman
has scored most of his runs on flat tracks at home. so i dont think much of his ability overseas.

actully if they wanted to appoint dilshan as captain he should have been VC to sanga dont u guys think. why was mahela made VC . these are the strange decisions. dilshan is 36 in october i think which means we all know Mathews is the obvious choice, so he should be VC from next full tour for sure if not,
im going to write a long blog.

also about a comment early in this thread the SLT20 is a waste of time. its not promoting any regional cricket. instead of ruhunu playing their games in hambantota they will be playing in khettarama. same applies to every one. all that money spent for nothing. all stadiums will become another dambulla 1 or 2 games a year.

Good stuff, Hatem.

BTW, I just got news that Angelo Mathews is fully fit, but doesn't want to push it with his bowling to soon. Even if he doesn't bowl, he is fit enough to play as a batsman and is able to field with no issues. Makes you wonder why they did not choose him.

Good news . yes his in rehab in melbourne. but i guess they would have had reservations about his fitness. but either way im sure he will get job from next tour.

another controversy brewing. SLT20 the singaporians are paying only 30 million to cricket board gonna cost more to organize

He is back from Melbourne, apparently. He did a shoot for a TVC recently too in SL, and I hear he is fully fit, but just doesn't want to bowl yet.

Yeah, what a mess this SLPL is? No news about the tournament, not even a website! The tournament start in weeks.

Why has Chamara Silva been omitted not only from ODI's but from A team to UK. He is 30 plus and since he was immature, shud now bw ready. But he was brought back and at no 6 he may not know if to hit or first settle down.

Send him at No 4 and see how he fares or even opening. Dilshan was in a similar situ. Chamara is also a fair leggie. Even Kapu shud be given a chnce at No 4 and then discarded.I have followed world cricket for 50 years , lived in Sydney for 24 years and spotted talent and players deserving selection the world over who subsequebtly did well. Examples are Lehmann, Katich, Mahela (talent), David Hookes,Laxman and Silva after his 50 many years ago but not given a proper run. Van Dort too can do well if given confidence . Randiv has talent as a bat.

But politics will soon end SL cricket and the death knell will be if Namal buys cricket clubs. The 2 new Stadia will be white elephants.I am on the verge of giving up totally on SL cricket after the stage managed selection of Sanath for one match by Duleep who is still a parasite to SLC at expense of desrving cricketers.

I am surprised Sanath went out of his way to say Kandmaby will be a good captain.
