    ***Official*** Sri Lanka Discussion/Domestic thread 2014/15

    While we are still a couple of months out from the start of the one day Premiere League comp which is the major List A fixture on the SL domestic calender there is a fair bit happening in Sri Lankan cricket that can all be discussed here. For example the U 19 boys are hosting the Aussies, there is an incoming 'A' tour by WI soon and the national team is currently competing in the Asian games. Haven't been able to find a fixture but it will be available on cricinfo soon enough I'm sure, if I remember to I'll post it up later.

    So to get the ball rolling news came in a few days ago that Senanayake has been cleared by SLC to play domestic cricket in a little List A tournament next month and they are looking to get him re-tested and cleared for international cricket ASAP, sounds like good news but geez I hope they get this right
    Samuel_Vimes and YorksLanka like this.

    yeah ,correct me if i am wrong but i believe that if he is called again, it is an automatic one year ban isnt it?we shouldnt justworry about the world cup as this guy has years of cricket left in him if he canget it right...

    If he fails a test after getting called again he cops a one year ban, but if he bowls in matches with a new action and that gets cleared when he gets re-tested then it should be all good

    Hey so the 'A' team is hosting the WI 'A' team over in Hambantota atm and the first unofficial test has started, good 'A' team for us, really happy with some of the selections, Jehan Mubarak is in after an unbelievable FC season, Priyanjan gets a run, and so does Seekkuge, although I'd have loved to see Randiv there. A few of the other fringe internationals are there too, Chandiguns and Thirimanne need a couple of big scores to get the confidence going again.

    Currently 1/40, decent start, Tharanga probably flashed at some wide filth or something I'm guessing

    This match is so boring, would have followed it if Ajantha Mendis was playing.
    Is this your homework Larry?

    dimuth going well again but would have liked to see silva opening with him as i still think they were the best opening partnership we have in tests currently...yes i like tharanga but he is more suited to odi's imho..

    Nah Silva's spot in the test team is pretty safe, I think the selectors were looking to get a bit of a battle going between Dimuth and Tharanga for the other spot ahead of the NZ series, that's fair enough. Thirrimanne in the runs too, a big hundred would do him a world of good, Chandiguns needs some runs too

    We're gonna see what happens with our guys bat but i fear this could be a total road of a track. These two teams played eachother in the Caribbean last year and all the games were draws aswell.
    One Day cups- Champions trophy winners-T20 cup-29 test series without defeat record- and some think we're a "minnow".

    Yeah the Windies went in with a pretty decent attack (mind you 2 spinners was a bit of a dud move I feel given Hambantota is generally a rather quick track by SL standards), suspect we'll have a high scoring draw on our hands here, still good to see batsmen spending time at the crease and doing well though, I think Eranga holds the key as far as our bowling goes, if he bowls well we might have a chance at a result

    And having said that the WI spinners have caused a bit of a collapse, interesting, this is what happens when I can only guess what is going on through scorecards haha

    good to see thirri and chandi in the runs, .i think Eranga will have a good run out here but i am surprised to see him in this team tbh as he would probably be the first of our quicks on the teamsheet- unless it is just to keep him physically conditioned for bowling until the WC..hopefully for the wc we will have him, pradeep,lakmal and prasad to pick from with support from thisara..

    I'm guessing Eranga won't be considered for ODIs and hence they are using this tour as a bit of match practice ahead of the NZ tour

    Yeah i think today our attack came back strongly and it was 198/8 after a pretty tough day yesterday!!..score now 56/1 the big wicket of Brathwaite just got out and Fudadin and Kirk Edwards are at the crease. Really just looking for us to get close to SL's 413...around 390 would put the pressure back on SL i'd think.

    Brathwaite
    Fudadin
    Edwards
    Fletcher
    Blackwood
    Walton (wk)
    Carlos Brathwaite
    Miller
    Shillingford
    Cotterrell
    Gabriel

    Is the team...Shilly got a 5fer after struggling badly earlier on and this is a new action he's using so that's interesting..apparently he's been working on the "straighter ball" deliver instead of a doosra so hopefully that got him a couple of wickets. Carlos Brathwaite is a very decent allrounder...Fletcher is part of the WI t20 team now and his batting has improved a lot of the years so it will be interesting to see how he goes and of course young Blackwood is a test player now so hopefully he impresses and gets some runs.

    It would appear the pitch has changed..two wickets first day and all of a sudden fourteen on day two? with TWELVE going to spin? madness. As for the team...

    Edwards continues to fail.

    Fudadin getting stumped is crazy considering the situation we were in

    Blackwood seems to have played a rash shot which he something he's gonna have to work on

    Fletcher was eating up dot after dot and the pressure told

    Carlos Brathwaite is apparently the "captain" so he has to play which has shortened the batting order (smh)

    I maintain that Fudadin shouldn't be opening as he's not an opener and Carter should certainly be there...we'll most likely be following on and we'll see what these guys are made of...i don't recall any practise matches during this tour so i won't be too harsh...but collapse in the same way in the second innings and major questions have to be asked.
