This is not the time to change a captain. If we do it, is totally based on emotion rather than fact. Sanga was one of the top scorers in this WC and he took us to a final. Why change captains?

he has performd brilliantly n lead da team frmd a frnt...

Maththews must be made captain...but NOT NOW!!he is only 23 for God's sake..would be the perfect choise once Mahela & Sanga retires.

He must when Sanga retires and when Angelo is matured.There is no need to change the captaincy for just loosing a WC final.

Well i think mathews as the next caption after sanga.But i dont think it is now.But we should give him some responsibilities.Obvios choice is make him the deputy to sanga so he can share some responsibilities.

who ever made this poll obviously don't have any cricketing sense. are you testing sanga's abilities as a captain? i don't think we have ever had a captain who is a good ambassador of sri lanka cricket than sanga. the way he handles himself and his team is remarkable and i don't think anyone out there has a good cricketing brain like he does. so please don't add insult to the injury. we are just lacking a little fire power in the bottom. that's all. we are going the right direction.
