    Icon2 Jayasuriya Axed For Tests Against India

    Finally it looks like curtains for jayasuriya, the tormentor of india for the last 10 years from 1996 world cup. The lanka selectors have ran out of patience and had axed him for the forthcoming tests against india according to the article in indian express today by trevor chesterfield..
    Looks like more countries are taking the bold decisions of dropping big players thereby proving that nobody is bigger than the game. With jayasuriya threat not looming for tests india can breathe a little bit easy .

    personally im a big sanath fan and its a shame to see him on his way down, i miss the days when he really was one of the most feared batsmen around.

    Sanath if you ever read this: as an Indian supporter you were our nemesis. As a cricket fan, i hope you can get back to the team becaue you are a lankan legend.

    Best bowler = Muttiah Muralitharan

    Is it actually confirmed?

    After a quick check through all the reputable news websites, no report of it anywhere.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    By the way, this newspaper is one of the respected ones and the writer is srilanka columnist. This news will be definitely up hopefully soon in other sites.

    Micheal Vandort, Ian Daniel and Tharanga have all been groomed in the A side to replace him and Atapattu. There is also Vithana boys that have come through the under 19s.

    must say i'm not sorry to hear this, he has been pretty ordinary this year. and there's no way he would've made it to the 2007 WC. so now 's the chance to blood a new opener, preferebly Vandort.

    Geez how long ago did Vandort last play for Sri Lanka? 3 or 4 years ago?

    What has happened to him or has he become the forgotten man of Sri Lankan cricket?
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Technique flaws that were found out in A matches and domestic cricket after his first Test against Bangla. All reports say that he has fixed these errors in his game.

    What about Arnold? I thought he was an opener when he first came into the Sri Lankan side.

    Cant say who is really responsible for this sorry affair.

    Jayasuriya was clearly not fit after his injury. He should have been rested. It is really sad that insisting on continuing with him while he was unfit and struggling with form has resulted in such a situation that he has to be treated in a manner that would have been avoided if he as wqel as Team Sri Lanka had not been so short sighted.

    A tragedy that it happened like this.
