As we all know, Tharanga will never get selected to play for SL again. I'm posting these videos not expecting him a place, but just to show a glimpse of things that he had done for SL and to bust the unfair criticism aimed at this guy.. demeaning his batting skills and performances...

The extent of unrecognition & underestimation of this guy's numerous contributions to SL,..... dating back to 2006, 5-0 whitewash in Eng & SL,(which never earned him a spot to tour Eng again for 10 years to date despite having SL's best batting Av Vs Eng).... up to SL's last formidable Test series win Vs PK in Aug 2014 (despite producing sides highest batting contribution 92, 45 in vital series decider).... which didn't earn him at lest a spot in the 15 men squad selected for the next series in NZ, Dec 2014 :)

Hope none of our players would face his fate in future..

he should be selected for upcoming england test series and odis, before gambling again with already tried and failed. hopefully ara will do some justice to him and sl this time.

Upul's 347 runs contribution in that NatWest Series 5 - 0 whitewash in Eng is the highest ever accumulated by a single player in a 5-odi series. Still his record stands.

347 runs/ 120HS/ 69.40 AV / 84.42 SR/ 2 x100 and 1x 50
