any one know look @ other team openinig batsmens one is must like be 2 play whole innings with with hold his end and other side man is special power play hitter out of the circle warner 4 aussie,shewag for india,gayle 4 windies,mccullum 4 kiwis, boseman 4 south africa and SANATH 4 us we dont need slow start we need quick fire start he is the onlyman to do that with hight strike rate wat ever dilshan prety unform in ipl and mahela in good form but those and slow players within power plays they cant get extra 20 runs and they can keep wicket and play big innings but that is not good we need one of quicker fire batsman specialy unothdox so he is the one to play open spot and choose mahela or dilshan becoz bowlers can atack straght to unothdox batsmen in other side and 50 plus runs need in power play and after get that we can keep so sanath must need to open if mahela and dilshan ,or chandimal bat there we mis 20 or 30 runs also mis a wicket of once another runs we mis to build innings but sanath open if he out early then mahela to come and continue big scores

yup that is the thing allda people thinking they have to do that selection job for sri lanka 90%people think they are right,how can they think this is not a tenis ball game you play in ur house with ur friends,this is not a video game there are soo many big different between soft ball(home,fun)cricket and real cricket too speedy,also think huge different between crilankan club cricket,under 19,and interprovincial cricket and international level ,fitness tecniques,skill,and also huge different about using pitches grounds,so if people think club leval player get wicket one international player,s in domestic,or club player won man of the series in domestic people think he must come to national team,gayan wijekoon,dilhara lokuhettige,gihan rupasingha,so many players like them they are the heros in domestic but after they come to international they cant performe well they need so many chances in natinal team to setldown mainly five or six player defnitly want to in team and 4 of younger talented new players and two of testing club players need to in team ,no more things hope from them not to give huge work to do them only protect them but this time so many players come to team and they distroy because we hope huge things from them if we need a made good team we need staght journey if one match or tournament lost after be changed the team that is the worst thing we do ,some media's some journalist,news papers,some old cricketers 'peoples talking there idea and to take changhed team they dont know wat is cricket,soo many different in we saw in the tv and inside team team has secrat plans not show or we cant understand it in the televisions so,media's journalist are too mach wrong they have to give chance to selection and not byte them, in past team not changed huge only one player for one tournament but now 3,5 players changed and give pressure for all the players,after players not playing for team,only playing for him self make secure his spot in team,eg;kandambi play 90 to take huge time,but match lost but his place is secure but if he try to differnt and get risk and pump up strike rate and we can win the match but players fear to do that lost his place this is the way to out of the first round srilanka in 2011 world cup

all are ignore sanath worldclass super hero all time srilankan crowd lover this time people dosnt like him reason politics,

dat is not good

same type dilshan and mahela if they open innings bowlers can easly get one of them because same kind right hand tecnical batsmen and only they can hit the six over using fett and hit drives and hook for short balls,every batsmens in team with out sanath the same kind,only sanath can hit cut for six pull,more and every where in the park ,so he need 2 bat powewr play dont look @ only currunt situation see all the stats of sanath his favorite 2 grounds in this time providence, kensinton,his allda records has that type of wickets ,sydney,auckland,whankhade,oval,bloomfontain,lahore,out of country pretty bad records for south africa,

he can bat normal 70% batiing wicket not like 99% indian wicket so last 2 tours south africa icc ct and india he is fail but this is da chance i think coaches are may be totaly right remember he miss out the team 2008 westindies tour and after he came back strongly in asia cup coach is the reson for that no he practice well and come back look indians best opener gunguly's cricket life distroyed by that time coach graig chappel keep he out of team and after worldcup they miss out first round out and he goes after distroy indians name,soo coaches not 100% right baillys not good one like moody,watmore

ashanta de mal is the succesful selector he is the one for reason for 2 worldcup runners up so may be get good team for world cup no chance for testing every matches must neede to win for win the worldcup

First of all, there's a lot of people on this site who have played a lot more than just a bit of tennis ball in the backyard. Also we have the right to express our thoughts. Then again, selectors, they're just like us, some perhaps have lesser cricket knowledge than some guys on this site!!! U small points here n there but no, ur wrong, there's nothing wrong with asking the public whom they want to be opening for sri lanka! After all, this is our team, not the cricket board's or the selectors'. This team is owned by the people they're representing!

It has to be Dilshan n Mahela.

Jayasuriya is out of form and the drama he has alreay caused to get into the squad, no way!! I mean Im actually starting to dislike him. To think how odd it must be for the guys in the dressing room. Anyone who have played a team sport must understand that such a situation in the team dressing room will lead to no good!
