That is the point I keep telling and I am trying to tell. How many more hidden talents can be found if you have a proper domestic cricketing structure. Unfortunately that is what we lack at the moment.

I have pointed out this earlier. Sri Lanka has been playing as a full ICC member since 1982. If we go through the history, around 90% of players who played for national team have come from only 3 provinces (Western,Southern,Central).

Isn't our school cricket mostly based on few popular schools around the above 3 provinces???

Isn't our domestic cricket based on few popular clubs in Western Province??? What has happened to the other provinces(Sabaragamuwa,North Central,North Western,Uva,North and Eastern Prvinces)???

Don't they possess any cricketing talent???

Can someone name any player who represented or has the potential to represent national team Apart from Rangana Herath,Shaminda Eranga,Asitha Fernando(North Western Province),Tharanga Paranavithana,Chaminda Bandara,Isuru Udana-(Sabaragamuwa Province) from OUTSTATION???

Sri Lanka is a small country but we have enough hidden talents. But for me, the issue is we don't have a proper system to utilize it and the authorities don't seem to have intention to take any step forward.

If SLC want club cricket, let them alone but can't these clubs invest on these OUTSTATION players to SHAPE UP????

Finally, I thank Mr. Amila Saman for Sharing this video........!!! Hope that the relevant authorities take an action on this matter...!!!

Islandcricket like media platforms can do lot to bring these guys into the attention of responsible people. If he is who he claims it would be grate find but he also could be an average. But no harm will done so better testing him in Colombo. Some times they will get the attention of big people and make into the big scene but some times they will not.
