    The squad:


    1. Dimuth Karunaratne
    2. Ashan Silva
    3. Udara Jayasundara
    4. Thilina Kandambi
    5. Kaushal Silva
    6. Roshan Silva
    7. Kushal Janith Perera
    8. Banuka Rajapakse
    9. Angelo Perera
    10. Sohan Borallessa
    11. Malinda Pushpakumara
    12. Kanishka Elvitigala
    13. Nilanka Premaratne
    14. Vishva Fernandes
    15. Kosala Kulasekera
    16. Sachithra Serasinghe
    17. Jehan Mubarak

    It's ****ing ridiculous that RMS Eranga cannot find a place in that squad. He is by far the best SL pace bowling prospect emerged lately.

    Isn't Eranga in the test squad?

    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    Eranga is not in the 1st test squad, but I guess they have plans of drafting him into the 2nd or 3rd test. I hope

    Looks like selectsuckers have something against Randiv and Eranga. Otherwise they should be automatic choices. I think Dhammika Prasad and Welegedara are the stand in pacemen for 2nd and 3rd tests.

    Tour match against Dolphins ended in a draw. Angelo Perera and Dimuth Karunarathne doing well.

    Pity they couldn't pop round to pound the daylights out of Kenya. Would be good to hook up associates with a few of these unofficial tests. Would build the associate and give the A team a nice confidence boost.

    Once again selectsuckers at work. Not picking a pair of opening batsmen was a joke. Then not to pick two of the brightest youngsters in Rajapakshe and Kusal Janith was another blunder. No wonder SL A getting whipped.

    FFS, pick a decent batsman to open, the go to player would be Kaushal Silva, and he can hand his gloves to Kusal Janith.

    For second "test"

    Dimuth Karunarathne, Kaushal Silva, Bhanuka Rajapakshe, Roshen Silva, Angelo Perera, Sachithra Serasinghe, Kusal Janith+, Kosala Kulasekara, Kanishka Alvitigala, Dhammika Prasad, PM Pushpakumara

    would be the way to go.

    Once again selectsuckers at work. They added Kusal Janith oc course. But No Bhanuka Rajapakshe.

    290/8 is an improvement.

    IIRC Bhanuka had not done anything to merit a place even on the A squad.
