    [Interesting what`s Mahelas next move going to get rid of Sanath from the side.]

    Eh? Why does Mahela want him out???

    I am happy for Sanath that he is back in the side and deserves to have a one final go.

    It is entirely wrong of the selectors to think of the World Cup and introduce failing young players again and again and to exclude a veteran who can single handedly win us a match.

    The selectors should now focus on winning the tournament in hand and to let the best 11 take the field no matter whether young or old.

    And I also strongly feel that Sanath has to bow in style and it will no better occasion than the Asia Cup so whether he shines or not it is time that he bid good-bye to the ODI game.

    Seniors have not come out with consistence performance in the past except Vaas.

    Selectors has failed to find replacements or supportive players in the past,due to changes at Muppet`s team.also they through Young players against difficult opponents.

    With inform strike bowlers down with Injuries,it`s another rotation of young players at Asia cup.

    Batting failures from Opening down wards after Marvans Departure hurting Middle order all the time.

    Joker`s only score was the inclusion of Sanath after dropping him by past selectors,which paid off.But turned otherwise in Australia later.

    He will be caring the Flag till MR stay in power.


    You have been high on Young blood to Opening and Spinners slot in the past.

    What made you to change at Sanath`s inclusion against young palyers..?

    Agree with you on Santh`s farewell late Asia Cup.

    Mahela is not worth half of Sanath.He can`t even imagine of doing what Sanath has done for the sri lankan cricket.

    I don`t think that there is something between Mahela & Sana.....

    Glad that Sana got a chance to fire agains and say good bye to national cricket in pride...

    Hope our youngsters will be able to take the pressure after Sana`s departure and deliver well.......

    We owe you too much Sana... you did a lot to our cricket....

    In fact, I am a very big fan of Sanath and have never mentioned anything against him. I preferred Malintha when the selectors dropped Sanath.

    [I don`t think that there is something between Mahela & Sana.....]


    I think you are not aware of the stories, which have surfaced to this effect, based on Mahela`s attitude to under bowl Sanath raised a doubt in me to this regard.

    Have you noticed that?

    [Master Blaster]

    Who? The guy behind the bus bombings in Colombo?

    Yes. Minister took a good decision to recall the Master Blaster Jayasuriya. Jayasuriya was dropped from the WI series because of not his poor performance but Mahela and Sangakkara wanted to remove him. They are jeorous of Jayasuriya. His age is not a barrier for his performance. Still he is fit for the job. It is true the young players should give opportunities to come up. But for the last two yaers many opportunities were given to Kapugedara, Tharanga and most of new players but they failed to show their talent. I suppose we must give the captaincy to Jayasuriya for another 2 years.

    They say ` The older the bull the stronger the horn` why worry then, why do people worry about age??????????? In USA no one is bothered of ones age they dont have a thing call `Retiring age`....a man or woman can work as much as they want provided they are equal to all others in their output....I know a certain lady who is 79 or now 80, she drives her car and goes for work everyday...and the company she works for is not prepared even to release her as her output is same as the youngsters in the same office...she had been told to work as much as she wants... and she says that she will never go ( she also does not prefer to be at home looking after the grand children,,,this is last thing she will ever do, she says....).Jayasuriya should not be asked to retire....the biggest qualification is `fitness & experience`...keep on batting sana boy
