    Good job Ash, we need sana to the test squad. still we can expect lot from out master blaster.

    Why the journalist failed to name the six players? Selectors may give another chance to Jayasuriya no harm. But they will have to find a good opener for the test team(right hand batsman) on merit. I do not think Vandort is suitable looking at his record during last two years.

    A consistent performer at premier tournament level as opener may be ideal choice without going by the big names. A school level performer should be ear-marked for future.

    Who rules the cricket selections ?

    Players or the selection committee...........

    Irrespective of their performance, (06) players should be either kicked out of the national team or deciplined forthwith.

    They must know that their job is to perform and only perform.

    It is sad to see Mr.de Mel looking back-wards-Sanath was our star but his days are almost past-if we don`t look to the future and keep harping on past glories we will never progress so his comments and criticism of the coach and the current squad of young players on a difficult tour of England in the spring is most un welcome and extremely stupid coming from his position(Chairman of selectors). What must the young players feel if thats what the boss thinks of them,he needs to encourage and promote youngsters at least publicly and keep his critical comments for his chats with the minister and his colleagues in the board. What a govt. minister has to do with the team selection of our cricket team also is still beyond my comprehension.Anyway all Sri Lankan cricket fans please encourage and support our boys unlike their chairman of selectors!

    I want to know who this six are? They must be the Mahela clan that created a coup d`etat to remove Vaas from the captaincy. I would like to see Marvan back and kick Mahela out.

    I think we should stick to the present team!! we may not do well in England as normally conditions at present time does not suit our style of Cricket but that is fine as long as we give experience to our youngsters.Let them fail but let them learn!

    We Salute Sanath for all what he has done for Sri Lankan Cricket!! but the team has to go on without SANATH.

    I am not sure Mahela is a Good captain and he is not performing with the bat as well. I also have my reservation about Moody, our new coach!

    If the news is true, I am sure Mahila is one of them.

    He is a failure and somebody else should get the captaincy.

    I wonder why they(selectors) forgot Muralidaran and Vaas, they are very experience players.

    Sanath should stay away from this mess. Doing that he can show how valuable he is for cricket rather than playing.

    Bravo Asantha!

    whether Sana is gonnna come back or not its very good to show that we still have some people with guts.

    Ray123: The best person to lead Sri Lanka is none other than KUMAR SANGAKKARA.......

    SL Cricket should have handed over the Captaincy to him & commenced his grooming from this England tour......

    A lost opportunity & lack of vision.

    Under Mahela`s captaincy we lost to Bangladesh and England A recently. Vass or Mulari should be given captaincy as they are senior players. Sangakkara has time as he is young. Otherwise we will face the same consequences that faced by Zimbabwe.

    Mahela is not matured to hold the captaincy of SL team. What is his achievements in international cricket?. I don`t like this guy. No way we can compare this guy against Aravinda or Santh. They are our gods of SL cricket. Mahela has nosignificant milestones.

    It is a great news to hear Sana is coming back to test cricket. If he comes new players can learn a lot from him. Good job Asantha. You should work to build a good sri lankan spirits. Mahela is not a prominent figure in SL cricket.
