    Seconded! Thanks for that - I've never really followed the SL domestic game, but it's always interested me.

    Keep this up Tharmi - I think we're only lacking a Pakistani thread now. I've always struggled to keep tabs on Sri Lankan cricket, especially once the internationals are away, purely because I can't keep track of the Fernandos, Pereras and Silvas of this world!

    Sri Lanka Squad Announced to play Bangladesh A and England A

    The Sri Lanka 'A' squad: Michael Vandort, Mahela Udawatta, Malinda Warnapura, Thilan Samaraweera, Jehan Mubarak, Thilina Kandamby (subject to fitness), Kanchana Goonawardane, Kaushal Silva, Ishara Amarasinghe, Akalanka Ganegama, Sujeewa Silva, Dhammika Prasad, Tharanga Laksh(i)ta, Chanaka Welagedera, Rangana Herath, Kaushal Lokuarachchi, Dilruwan Perera, Ranga Dias, Gayan Wijekoon.

    The interesting selections was the re-call of Colombo CC players Micheal Vandort and Sujeewa Silva. With only three specialist openers in Vandort, Udawatta and Goonawardene one will expect Vandort to open the batting even though he got selected on the back of century down the order. The non selection of Tharanga Paranavitana is also a joke, his been the best opening batsmen in the PL this season, by a big margin.

    The non selection of Kapugedera is a joke, his in the Test squad but he needs to play these series to get back into ODI squad and improve his technique. He should have atleast been given a provisional spot until he joins the Test squad.

    The make up of the pace attack should be interesting with Amarasinghe, Ganegame, Silva, Prasad, Laksh(i)ta, Welagedera playing for three spots, with Dias and Wijekoon likely to play as all rounder. The non selection of Dilhara, Weeraratne, Hasatha Fernando is a sign they are looking for more specialist then bits and pieces all rounder. Mind you Wijekoon is the best bits and pieces player ever.

    The non selection of Weerakoon, Suraj and Randika is also suprising but Hearth and Lokuarachchi have been in very good form. I don't know much about the 3rd spinner Dilruwan Perera, i think he might go under a different name usually.

    EDIT: WTF how did this guys Dilruwan Perera: 201 runs @ 22.33 & 14 wkts @ 31.4 (This Season), make it infront of Nisal Randika: 579 runs @ 34 & 21 wkts @ 8.47. If they wanted an all round spinner i know who i would go for. If they wanted a specialist then Weerakoon his better then both.

    Promotion and Regulation: Day Two Scores

    SL Army 114 All Out (D Hettiarachchi 3/33) & 88 All Out (D Hettiarachchi 6/18) lost to
    Chilaw Marians 274 All Out (C Fernando 48, M De Zoysa 3/49)


    Chilaw cemented their spot in the Top Flight with a easy win over Army. In the first innings the wickets were shared with all four bowlers used taking atleast two wickets. Chilaw responded with a lackluster batting display with former Under 19 and SL A keeper batsmen Charith Fernando top scoring with 48, five other batsmen passed 20
    with no one going on. Chilaw finished the job off in the 2nd innings with Hettiarachchi taking six wickets.

    Saracens 243 (N Abeyratne 79, L Dias 4/86) & 1/5 against
    Badureliya 322(H Wickramaratne 95, P Liyanage 66, Y Dilukshan 5/91)

    Saracens Sports Club trail by 74 runs with 9 wickets remaining


    Panadura 351 (D Perera 60, K Peiris 69, K Gangodawila 61) & 3/64( K Lakmal 2/19) against
    Lankan 169 (R Abeywardene 5/43)

    Panadura lead by 246 runs with 7 wickets remaining


    Sebastianites 268 (M Fernando 69, T Gamage 5/74) against
    Burgher 7/350 (V Perera 93, C Soysa 63)

    Burgher Recreation Club lead by 82 runs with 3 wickets remaining in the 1st innings


    Some interesting matches with Panadura really putting the heat on Saracens to get something from their match with Badureliya. If Saracens lose and Panadura win then they qualify for the Top Flight. Badureliya and Lankan are already in, but Badureliya have a chance of finishing 1st. The Burgher/Sebastianities match is pretty much academic, but Burgher can still finish in the top infront of Lankan, so they might get a easier group.

    Also Dilruwan Perera showed some signs of why the selectors picked him in the A sqaud, scoring a run a ball 60 opening the batting and taking 2/7.

    Should do a better job of keeping this update, well is anyone reading it. I'll keep it going till the end of the Twenty20 Cup anyway.

    Final Round Scores in Promotion and Regulations group:

    Saracens 243 & 313 drew with Badureliya 322

    SL Army 114 & 88 lost to Chilaw Marians 274

    Panadura 351 & 8d/348 drew with Lankan 169 & 7/89

    Sebastianites 269 & 191 lost to Burgher 416

    Final Tables

    Panadura will be kicking themselves for not declaring earlier as it cost them a spot in the top flight. Saracens just made it through with a few extra bounus points.

    The guys in bold and italics are the real top 10, as they played thier cricket against the top flight sides all season. The rest are just minnow bashers unless prove otherwise IMO. By including the other guys it gives you a better indication of who are the top players in Sri Lanka. As you can see by the bowling, a lot of bowlers get cheap wickets against crap batsmen.

    Twenty20 Cup Groups

    Group A: Sinhalese, Nondescripts, SL Army & Ragama
    Group B: Bloomfield, Sebastianites, Colombo & Saracens
    Group C: Tamil Union, Moors, Panduara & Lankan
    Group D: Chilaw Marians, Badureliya, Burgher & Colts

    All pretty even with two top teams in all groups and two average sides. B might be the hardest depending and which Sebastianites turns up.

    Round One Scores

    Group A

    Sinhalese 139 All Out lost to Nondescripts 8/140 (18.5)
    Rangama 89 All Out lost to SL Army 6/91(14.3)

    Group B

    Sebastianites 122 All Out lost to Bloomfield 6/125 (16.1)
    Colombo 6/150 (20) lost to Saracens 9/152 (19.3)

    Group C

    Lankan 8/116 (20) lost to Tamil Union 2/117 (12.1)
    Panadura 115 All Out lost to Moors 4/116 (11.5)

    Group D

    Colts 9/124 (20) lost to Chilaw Marians 2/126 (16.1)
    Badureliya 104 All Out lost to Burgher 4/107 (17.2)

    Some very interesting games, with all team that batted 2nd winning the matches. Also a lot of low scoring games, a sign that Twenty20 isn't just a batsmen game. Only one high scoring game between Colombo and Saracens, where Jehan Muburak showed he knows what side of the bat to use. Probably more of sign of the crap bowling from Saracens really. In truth the low scoring matches were more to do with poor batting and the gap in standard between the top and bottom sides.

    Wow, they sure don't waste time with that Twenty20 tournament.

    Sinhalese have lost two on the trot now. Were 83/9 chasing 103, got to 100/9 with an over remaining before a run out. Shouldn't be possible with a line-up of A Gunawardene (2), Nuwan Zoysa (3), Kaushal Silva (4) and Lokuarachchi (5) IMO. Komasaru and Chandana bowled out the Army, so Nondescripts have won group A.

    Tamil Union chased down 173 with ease against Panadura. Looks like they thumped sixes on a small ground. 96 not out for veteran Bathiya Perera for Moors. Looks like he was a decent batsman back in the day, so it's Moors v Tamil Union in that group.

    And Chilaw (they were international Twenty20 winners a couple of years ago?) won by one hundred and thirteen runs in Group D. Solid.

    A lot of Sinhalese back up players have been taken by other clubs, as they offered pretty good money and 1st team spot. In the past the Sinhalese 2nd XI side would be better then most 1st XI sides. Also Rangama the side that beat them are one of the better sides in Sri Lanka now, boasting quite a few Sri Lankan internationals.

    The big surprise has been the fact that Colombo have also lost two on the trot. The two favorites for the title are both out.

    After it was decided that Sri Lanka A players will now get contracts the selectors changed the sqaud for the Bangleadesh A Series. I guess they felt some guys weren't worth getting paid. The big changes was the fact that Upul Chandana and Chamara Kapugedara got brought into the squad. As well as the change in captaincy with Thilan Samaraweera (capt) and Malinda Warnapura (vc) taking over the captaincy from Jehan Muburak. I guess they also felt he wasn't worth the extra money required for a captain. Interesting developments as it seems we might be taking Sri Lanka A Cricket more seriously with more money involved. A good move overall as it mean that more players can make a better living out of cricket.

    Sri Lanka A pool: Thilan Samaraweera (capt), Malinda Warnapura (vc), Mahela Udawatte, Michael Vandort, Chamara Kapugedara, Jehan Mubarak, Kaushal Silva (wk), Upul Chandana, Ishara Amarasinghe, Akalanka Ganegama, Sujeewa Silva, Rangana Herath, Kanchana Gunawardane, Ranga Dias, Tharanga Lak(s)hita.

    Well i might make this thread also the thread for the Sri Lanka A and Bangladesh A Series, as to boys from Bangladesh seem to have forgot about it after their World Cup heroics.

    Teams selected:

    Sri Lanka A: MG Vandort, ML Udawatte, BSM Warnapura, TT Samarawerra (c), CH Kapugedera, J Mubarak, JK Silva (wk), UDU Chandana, MKDI Amerasinghe, WCA Ganegama, WRS de Silva

    Bangladesh A: Tushar Imran (c) , Khaled Mashud (wk), Mehrab Hossain jnr, Enamul Haque jnr, Jahurul Islam, Mahmudullah, Nazimuddin, Nadif Chowdhury, Nazmul Hossain, Talha Jubair, Saghir Hossain

    We are into Lunch on the 2nd Day, Sri Lanka A batted first and are 4/455 so far. There was a big partnership between Samarawerra (162) and Waranapura (242), where they put 376 for the third wicket. Bangladesh are starting to make a comeback after dismissing both Samarawerra and Waranapura. Kapugedera and Muburak are at the crease at present.
