It seems he is passing lots of hints to Chandimal.. I don't understand why our team is divided.. So sad..

First of all, can Malinga give a press interview without permission from SLC?

Malinga seems to have a good cricketing brain. Nobody doubts his ability as a bowler too. But, to wash dirty linen in public is an unprofessional and unintelligent thing to do especially, just before a major tournament. Didn't he think of the impact his interview will have on Sri Lankan cricket at this crucial juncture? Is he being SELF-FISH? We also have to blame the SLC administration for being unprofessional at times and creating a situation of this type.

I feel Malinga is not MENTALLY READY to play for Sri Lanka. If selected, Malinga can disrupt the harmony of the team and might not give 100%. Therefore, with a heavy heart, I suggest that it is better to leave Malinga to rest and be fully fit for IPL and the rest of the franchises. I wanted him to lead us in WC T20, provided he is fully fit. But, the time has come to forget about Malinga playing for Sri Lanak.

Finally, I want Malinga to tell whether he helped a Sri lanakn to bowl yokers just like he helped Indian Bumrah. Remember, SL Cricket helped you to be who you are today. Please be humble!

Malinga is relaxing for IPL. So we do not want players like Malinga to play for SL anymore. Let him play for IPL & earn MONEY. Time has come for Chandimal to lead the team.

Chandimal and Thirimanne are not t20 players.. or match winners, they are selfish players , I want to how many man of the match has the great thiri and chandi have got in their whole Career??? Not many... The always milk a few easy runs less than a run a ball and stays in the team forever .... What has lakmal done to claim his spot as a bowler who conceded 50 in four overs vs NZ , could been worst if not for Anderson retired... Gave away 20 runs in super over ..coming up with excellent figures of 5 overs 70 runs .. Heheee lol.. even Dasun Chanaka had better figures even though he conceded 48 he picked up 2 important wickets plus he came really well after the over where he conceded 29 runs shows he is a great asset but lakmal us laughing stock all five overs were pummelled for big runs ... I think players like chandimal ,THIRIMANNE ,lakmal, Senanayake, Dilshan should be out ...our NEW SLC SELECTORS ARE STUPID TO KEACE OUT RAJITHA WHO BOWLED MAGNIFICENTLY EXCEPT 1 over which he went for runs but came back really well and dropped for slc bunny lakmal... 2 matches and one mom performance n left him out the stupid slc!! Give chances to kusal mendis, milantha, and dhanushka ., for god sake..
