These are the SL experts for you. I never heard anyone telling for play for draw as a cricket commentator. If Sri Lanka can beat once why not twice? I have nothing against Mubarak but this is the guy who wanted Mubarak badly in the team. Now telling SL should play for draw..

Said it at the time - didnt agree with Mubaraks selection and saying it now again. Selectors will pick Mubarak and Tharanga on a flat SSC wicket and everyone will get amongst the runs. Both will scratch around for another two years before the selectors realize what we already know - by which time a real potential young talent in the name of Kusal Perera would be lost in the wilderness and we will be all wondering where the talent is!

I really dont understand why the first choice is not to play a young player in prime form - what is really so hard about this concept, nothing to lose so much to gain.

The problem we have with the current selection panel is very regimented. They pick a squad and stick to it no matter what happens on the field. Never review and revisit their selections to see whether they need tweaks.

I always had reservations about Mubarak. But his performances in the local competition warrants a spot in the team. But having played in two series without making an impact except for the first test in Galle. His position in the team should be reviewed. I believe Sri Lanka is always better off playing someone like Angelo Perera rather than sticking to Mubarak.
