    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 I know, its on cricinfo too

    Also why have they demoted Jayawardene from vice-captain, giving it to Vaas? I see no real reason for it, nothing that stands out.

    I think the SL selectors are typical knee jerk reaction fools !!

    Afterall they waited for Jayasuriya to fail all these ODIs before dropping him !!

    When they very well could've dropped him after the 3rd or 4th ODI and brought in some of the younger guys across from SL. India is only few hours by Flight . Why they couldn't do that I have no idea.

    But now if they go really stupid and make whole sale changes from the Test Team because of ODI performances , they are even more stupidder than I thought !!

    This Jayasuriya thing was long time coming . And it was plain to see for anyone following SL cricket that it was coming by sooner rather than later.
    Only the fools at SL cricket were slow to pick it up !
    Tom Moody as coach seems a bit slow to pick these things as well, and I doubt very much his tenure as SL cricket coach will last long . * may end before the 2007 WC by the way things turn out in NZ and Australia this summer *

    As far as Test squad goes,
    Van Dort or Ian Daniel should open with Atapattu in Tests.

    So the team should look like this -

    Van Dort/Daniel
    Atapattu
    Tharanga
    Sangakkara
    Samaraweera
    Jayawardene
    Dilshan
    Vaas
    Weerakoon (spinner) or Bandara
    Murali
    Malinga

    Chandana and Herath are likely to get caned in India and I have grave fears if they are included as the second spinner for Tests in India.

    I would be interested to see if the new comers get a run in the Indian Test Team over guys like VVS . Particularly Dhoni and whether Ganguly finds his way back into the Test Team .

    Also interested to see if RP Singh, Sree Santh or Yadav get a Test Cap .

    I have just read the Test squad and was pleased that Vaas has been made Vice Captain.

    Vaas and Murali are the only two guys in the Team who give 100% all the time even when conditions are adverse and the Team is really down. Vaas's elevation probably reflects a recognition of his hard work and contribution to the Team over several years.

    It also sends a key message to Little Mahela that future Captaincy (after Marvan) is not guaranteed and that there are others equally capable of taking over the Captaincy (which must include Sangakkara and of course Murali) .

    The selection of Avishka Gunawardene and Chamara Kapugedera are very puzzling.

    Avishka is one of those lucky cricketers in SL who has made himself a career out of being an eternal Fringe player. He has been an eternal under performer and under achiever for over 7-8 years but despite this, by keeping the powers that be at SL cricket well oiled he has remained a recurrent feature of A teams and by scoring heavily against the likes of Bangla and Windies A teams and other weak A teams, has made himself a little career as an eternal (satisfied) fringe Team player. But whenever he has been given an opportunity in Tests or ODIs he has always failed and been found wanting.

    Despite this he gets another oppotunity at Test level at the expense of Jayasuriya.

    The selection of an 18 year old by the long name of Kapugedera into the Test Team from oblivion means that he is well connected and has the right backers to get him there with ease where others have repeatedly knocked on the door and been refused entry or kept waiting .

    Lets hope he can be an even better surprise package than his selection was.

    I can't believe Gunawardene got selected over Vandort or Ian Daniel, what a joke.

    Never heard of Chamara Kapugedera, must have done something special at U19 and school boy level.

    I don't think he even played at the SL U-19 tour of England this summer...

    Yep. For a start, he could include Jayawardene...IIRC he averages about 47?
