Just wondering about everyone's thoughts on this guy.
I know his record isn't particularly great at international level - in fact it is quite poor so far in terms of average - however I still don't know why he hasn't been given more of a run. To me, he seems perfect for the Maharoof/Fernando role currently being fought over in the test side - he really impressed me with his control over line and length the last time he came to Australia and he showed similar qualities the last time he went to NZ.
With Sri Lanka's much improved bowling attack with now contains Malinga, Vaas and of course Murali, all they need is someone to bowl a good line and length and keep the pressure on at the other end. Too often have I seen Maharoof or Fernando just have absolute shockers with ball in hand and release all the pressure - I think Kulasekera, given another chance, could prove to be quite a useful bowler at both test and ODI level. The fact that Fernando, Perera and Ganegama have been given games ahead of him seems mind-boggling to me.
And while we are on the topic of Sri Lankan sides, how the hell doesn't Michael Vandort get a run in the test side? I'd have him over Tharanga any day of the week.
