Pathum Nissanka and Ashen Bandara were picked into shorter formats though neither of them took part in the LPL. Did LPL make a mistake by not picking them or has the Sri Lankan management made a mistake by picking them? And what do these conflicting stands say about Sri Lanka as a whole?
Sri Lankan selectors have been the biggest reason behind the team’s poor performances in recent times. The success of the second-string Sri Lankan side in Pakistan only proves this longstanding issue.
Shorter formats now leave no room for amateurish managerial travesties. Sri Lanka are less likely to mend their way of managing their cricket team. It is only right that the inevitable is acknowledged.
This World Cup squad is what you get when you let a macaque into a parrots’ nest.
Sri Lankan fans have clearly run out of patience. But why? And how justified is it?
Why try to find a solution when you have men to pin the blame on?

Nokia’s failure to adapt to the change and its final destiny are both a lesson for Sri Lanka Cricket.
Sri Lanka cricket is only trying to save its face and alleviate the symptoms instead of addressing the root causes of the current problems.

What has Malinga done wrong to be ill-treated in this manner?
“The clubs have voting rights, as I mentioned, and it is a conscious decision they have to make: are they going to be selfish or are they going to use those votes for the greater good of cricket in Sri Lanka?”
