Upul Tharanga was never selected to play in NZ since 2007.. that was in initial stages of his career.

do we see this kind of polished batting strokes or big scores from any of the new guys today? i don't think so. in recent nz tour and t20 all we saw was pathetic disgrace, bringing sadness.

As predicted, they have overlooked Upul Tharanga again- he had scored two near hundreds and almost three 50s just missed by less than 5 runs... he got starts in Evey test, since comeback after 7 yrs and failed to enter double figures only in one test. It is worthwhile comparing this consistency with the selected bunch to see what else he could have done to get selected :-))

Sanga managed his 1st ton in NZ in 2015, after 15 years, since his 1st visit and 22 Odis played in NZ, Dilshan managed his 1st Ton in NZ after 11 years and in his 10th Odi played there... but this guy Upul managed his 1st ton in his 1st visit to Nz, but strangely he had not played there since 2007 to date.

Same story in England as well. Sanga had scored his 1st Ton in Eng in 2013, after 11 years and in his 18th Odi played there & Dilshan had never scored a single Ton in Eng after playing 21 Odis in 10 years. But this guy Upul had scored 2 tons in England from his 5 odis played there, but never given a chance for 10 years since then.

what a strange world ?
