Chamara is still only 31 but Sam is 34 and nearing the end of his career. But they can both play for another 12 months after the WC if they do well, yeah?

Yes agree with Hilal.Chamra is having 2nd lease and thos who come back do better as they mature like Hayden, Lehmann and Katich in tests. Silva can be a star in WC but i have a fear Samaraweera has influence. He was not selected to Australia in case he failed, he would not have got a place in WC. And he announced that he was surprised he was not selected for A.

I would like to see Chamara Silva retain a place in our line up. He has a few more years in him, which can be useful to provide some experience to a probable young line-up in the future.

Although Samaraweera has changed his batting style to suit ODIs, I still think that Chamara is better for the format. Silva is a better fielder too. Some may argue that Silva won't be able to anchor an innings, but I have seen him do that in a few occasions to dig us out of trouble.

I think Thilan should retire from the limited formats and focus on Test cricket after the WC, he's a wonderful player and we need him in the most important format. So my vote goes for Silva.

I dont think any of these two will get a chance

Chamra Silva might

But Chandimal should be a permanent member of our team after the WC
