Even if he scores a century today..we will hate him! For the number of opportunities he got, any other batsman would have piled on runs. Get him out of team please.

Give him opening or 1 down...send sanga mahela after him...but not for the test series..he suits for odi's....give him more resposibilities...keep chandimal on standby...youngster need more tactical and phsycological things for his career...

I think he is under pressure 2 perform, as 2day he did remarkably well when SL was 32-3, and score a quick 60.BUT he has 2 B consistant.

silva shoul bat inbetween mahela and sanga.

for all those people who are criticizing silva must have forgotten the way he played in 2007 wc.and above all he plays spin well something kapu doesn't posses which got him out of the 11.. but i dont think he is the type who can handle pressure well

He was very confident and positive today. He should continue this.

Guys, this is nothing personal. But I feel he has denied many other talented players who could have best fitted into the no. 5-6 spots. He lacks consistency, that's the problem. To score that fifty today, he went through about 10 failures (including world cup) To me someone like Bhanuka Rajapaksha would do much better in that position. Young, consistant and confident. Silva lacks all these three aspects. For the number of failures he went through, he should be out of the team if he played for another country. Look at the Cricinfo live commentry. They call him "Steve Smith of Sri Lanka". A real joke to me!

Silva is not much talented...knows to play sweep and drive only...But crafty minded and know how to remain in the side wasting young and talented players like chandimal and kapugedara...dont get cheated by his crafty performance..He should be removed from the side...PLS DONT NAME HIM FOR THE NEXT TOUR...
