Mathews is the worst captain that SL has ever had. His negative captaincy is one of the main factors for SL's bad performance. Anyone(mentioned in the poll) can do a much better work than Mathews. If Mathews continues to captain the side, SL will go further down.

Captaincy should be given to Chandimal. Mathews is the best player in SL side. But he is the worst one to be the captain.

Stop asking this useless question again and again. Neither you or me will have an influence in this decision.

@lazyone I don't think he is the worst SL captain. Have you forgotten Hashan Tillekeratne? That was a move that should never have happened.

The problem is of all the players on this list no one has a stable position for one reason or another (selectors, form, fitness, various other reasons).

Chandimal is prob the most stable at present. That too he has only returned to the mix in the last 12 months or so.
His captaincy in that tie when Angelo left was not so great, although unfair to use half a game to judge him.

The others you can work out why they have been in/out of the side.

I am not sure what is going on here - surely its Chandimal? Maharoof? Randiv? Get real folks Randiv cant find a place in the side and Maha is recalled after 10 years because we cannot find a decent quality player and we reckon he should be captain! Throw Tharanga in to the mix and what are we saying? Should these guys even be in the side after all these years let alone be considered for captaincy.

@delan The game was getting away from us before Mathews left the field - Chandimal was left to pick up the pieces when the two batsmen were very well set.

Like you said, not fair to judge him by one half of a match. :)

Anyways, Mahela agrees that Chandimal is an aggressive captain and he also said that the tied ODI can't really be blamed on Chandimal.
