    I hear Lara is struggling with a finger injury as well in Australia. I hope the same doesn't happen to him.

    IMO if Vandort was in the squad then they probably woud have played him. The fact that they haven't played Thilan Samarawerra infront of him, shows they don't really rely on him as batsmen in ODIs.

    On Russel Arnold i would be kind of surprised if he isn't also dropped. He did start his domestic career as a opener, but you would think that the three mentioned above would be infront of him as a option for opening the batting in Tests.

    Chesterfield is a reliable source, so though I haven't seen it on any reputable website yet I think it should be true. If this is the case, wow that is huge.

    With all due respect to Sanath, he's no Lara and never has been. I really doubt Lara would be dropped before he retired. Particularly with the rate of batting collapses in the WI in recent times. That being said, Lara isn't above the game and stranger things have happened, but I wouldn't exactly worry about that.

    yeah, arnold came in as an opener. but he really cant handle the swing and bounce of the new ball, especially in australia and england against good opposition..

    I totally agree with u SJS, but how long will he last? I really don't think he will be around till the 2007 WC. so we need to find a replacement for Sana. I just hope this is a blessing in disguise.

    Yeah but what does dropping him in tests have to do with the World Cup?

    Jayasuriya according to cricinfo will be in the side, so the story must be a bit dodgy

    But he was averaging over 39 and yet he didn't make the Lankan A-team, while all those batsmen who did averaged in the low/mid 20's.

    One fan who highlighted this was livid and even went on to say that the selectors look at region, school and other attributes rather than skill to pick these team. I'm sure most Lankan fans would agree with that if they looked at the A-team selection.

    Wonder how this selection would look-
    • Vandort
    • Ian Daniel
    • Sangakkara
    • Dilshan
    • Chamara Silva
    • Lanka de Silva (WK)
    • Maharoof (RFM)
    • Zoysa (LFM)/Mirando (LFM)
    • Vaas (LFM)
    • Muralitharan (OB)
    • Dilhara Fernando (RFM)
    With reserves Chandana, Samaraweera and one more batsman.

    How about Saman Jayantha, think he is an opener too. why was he not picked?

    Lara always seems to be struggling with a finger injury. Actually, that might be Chanderpaul, I forget.

    Shame on you all for doubting Chesterfield. He's no regular rumour-spreading journo.
