Cant understand why Gamage is being picked over Chameera! A team like SL cant afford to leave out the only bowler who can bowl above 144 kph! Chameera should be playing regularly if he is fit.

Gamage has better control and can swing the ball unlike Chameera who only has raw pace and lacks in everything else control,swing,seam and everything else.

Binura Fernando is an ideal bowler to represent the Country with outstanding school & domestic career [though his domestic career has been limited to few matches only, due to sumathipala administration feels domestic Cricket is not that important for the Country whereas all our neighbour countries have given their 1st Class Cricket a high priority] No other bowler in this squad could match his skills in extracting lift & bounce off a good length as Nuwan Zoysa did in the past. It5s an heinous crime to continuously ignore bowler of his height and records.

Other teams don't think like that. Only defensive mentality will prevent you from selecting a bowler with raw pace who can trouble top batsmen with pace because you feel he doesn't have control and won't be bowling well.

Most importantly Gamage have a brain.. unlike that idiot Chameera. Pace only no swing , No control , No brain.. should drop from all formats.. Chameera = Wahab Riaz from pakistan.

Short leg Chameera is not the fastest bowler in Sri Lanka.

Lahiru Kumara the 20 year old can bowl faster than Dusmantha Chameera. He is 5 years younger and still have the ability to bowl faster than Chameera. Imagine in another 5 years. Chameera is the 2nd fastest bowler in SL currently.

So I would prefer Lahiru Kumara or Nuwan Pradeep. But I agree Chameera is better than Lahiru Gamage diply dobblies @ 125 kmph.
