After encouragement from PEWS, I've decided to begin a SL domestic thread in the hope of generating a bit of discussion, even if it's just me and one or two others. I personally have only just begun to follow SL domestic cricket, so there are a lot of names to learn and the like, but
At this stage, the domestic season has already began, there has been 6 rounds of the limited over competition and at this stage Colts CC and Nondescripts CC are leading their respective groups.
Niroshan Dickwella, the unfortunately named young wk batsman is leading the runs, and Kuashal Silva and Upul Tharanga are also up there.
In the wickets, I don't recognise any of the names until Suraj Randiv lol, but none of the big names have had a huge start, although Ajantha Mendis is doing all right.
Here's the cricinfo home for this tournament, where all the goodies are available, and I'll make sure to post at the end of every round.
I think this thread should also cover any 'A' tours and general SL cricket issues, including their long search for a new coach with Graham Ford stepping down. The search has been hampered by the ****ty pay that any potential coach will have to deal with, as shown by Steve Rixon pulling out. I'm personally hoping Marvan Atapattu gets the gig, but Mark Davis also has a shoe in.
So come discuss guys!
