    Heard from a friend of mine who works at cricinfo that Sanga's personal choice for the next captain is Mathews.

    Never rated Sanga as a captain.. That said, I do think theyshould appoint Dilshan for the next 1 and a half years and allow Matthews to grow as a player/vice-captain. And then switch it to Matthews so that he will be like 2.5 years in as a captain around WC time.. And I would like to keep Dilshan/Matthews as captain/VC in all forms of the game..


    Hopefully, Dil/Matthews can get them out of the negative mindset that has marked Sri Lankan cricket this last decade, where, inspite of some amazing players, they have never dominated other teams as much as they should have.

    I think Malinga would make the most badass captain the world has ever known,on sheer visual intimidation.

    Til Dil is 34. Don't see the point in making him captain.

    Good point. And if he's going to be made captain to give Matthews more time as an understudy then that defeats the purpose of Sanga's retirement in the first place. He is still captain in tests right?

    Sri Lankan selection committee resigns | Sri Lanka Cricket News | ESPN Cricinfo

    Would seem they're having a clearout. Interesting to say the least, I was less than impressed by the Sri Lankans' selections recently, but I'm bothered that such a huge overhaul might not be what the team needs right now.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Will be interested to see what happens in the leadup to August now with what looks like a complete clearing of the top decks.

    haha.......awta.........should try out a bowling captain as well
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Stuart Law appointed interim coach.

    Interesting, not a hugely popular man in Australian cricketing circles. Has he been doing some coaching in England since retiring?

    SL just love Stuart Law because of his dropped catch in the 96 WC final IMO

    Why are they having a complete rehaul?

    Thought they did pretty well in the WC. Need to build on it ,not start over again.

    Selectors contract ends in April 30th. So they might have resigned due to that reason. Sanga's resignation was pathetic.

    For me, SL are still the 2nd best ODI team overall in the last 15 years since their WC win. Though India have edged closer with this WC win. I don't think I've ever seen a Sri Lankan team that didn't do justice to its talent, at least in ODIs.
