Roshan Abeysinghe is one of the morons who promotes Thirimanne no matter what form he is in. It will be ridiculous if they bat Thirimanne at 3 despite the good form Kusal Mendis has shown in the tour so far. This type of self proclaimed experts are the worst for SLC.
Have a look at this expert's cricket career. http://www.espncricinfo.com/srilanka/con...

Very baffled by Roshan Abeysinghe's comments. The batting in the tour matches has not been good, it's been very weak. We collapsed at Essex while it took a 150+ 9th wicket stand to get us past 350 after being 190-8. The bowling has been poor as well, with the county side getting a higher first innings score while losing far fewer wickets. Also, why is he advocating Thirimanne for the number 3 position. Kusal Mendis has earned that position, and done well when coming in when an early wicket fell. Thirimanne made that unbeaten 40 after coming in with the score at 100-1 while Mendis made his fifty in the first innings coming in during the first over of the game. One thing is half agree on is that England may be holding back the seaming wickets, as they did for the Aussies last Ashes. However, the pitches could also just be flat so a full five days is played out to ensure maximum profits.

THIRI IS NOT EVEN GOOD ENOUGH TO OLAY FOR SL WOMENS TEAM. MR . ROSHAN ABEYSINGHE IS THE MOST STUPID THIRIMANNE SUPPORTER AND RUBBISHY TALKING COMMENTATOR I HAVE EVER SEEN, HE TRIES TO PROMOTE UTTER WASTE PRODUCT OF HIS CLUB THIRIMANNE AS NEXT DON BRADMAN... AND THE OTHER THING IS THAT ROSHAN SHOULD LEARN SOME ENGLISH WHEN COMMENTATING ON T.V AS ITS A PAIN TO HEAR HIM SPEAK ENGLISH AT COMM BOX.

When Rohan abeysinghe says something at commentry box , it's usually rubbish stuff... he does not have cricketing knowledge . I hope so cricket find better commentators than stupid useless Roshan abeysinghe who is a shame for the whole country in front of international commentaries.

What Roshan has said is the truth from his heart, that's why its very hard to digest for some!!! Thrimmane may have failed but the selectors do know how good he is that's why they are persisting with him, otherwise no body likes to loose. What roshan has said about Kusal is absolutely true, so why don't you start a campaign on facebook or on social media site where every SL fan can come together and pledge their support to Kusal. Kusal was very lucky to have sumithipalas backing, god knows what may have happened if he was not elected :(

Agreed with the thoughts of many, on what grounds are we talking about Thiri? I can only think of one - we cannt take him and bench him. Insane as it may sound we could be down to playing him on that logic, if that is indded logic.

Lets not start this merry-go-round with dropping guys in the hope someone else will miraculously deliver. Siri has shown great promise last year and lets not drop him at the fist sign of lack of form. Lets rather stick with him. Who will we play in his spot? Thiri?

Same applies for Mendis who hasnt really totally failed like say Thiri has. He is young and got a few starts in NZ and now 3 decent knocks so lets play him and stich with him.
