    Maybe he was the only one preventing Chandimal being dropped even earlier.
    And that guy at the helm of selection is none other than Sanath? Or did they remove him as well?

    which makes the chandimal call even worse. i'm open to dropping underperforming senior players, but not when the best player is already injured and the underperformer is far from the worst bat in the team.

    I read the news earlier and I honestly could not believe my eyes. Yeah so he hasn't been in the runs, but SA is a tough place to bat. You have to have a guy who's scored some runs there tour. Leave alone the fact that he is captain. Did I read that Thirimanne is in again? Now they really have to be taking the mickey.

    lol i forgot thirimanne was back, somehow. he's the living embodiment of filler even when he bats. he can't score runs but he can stay in for a bit so he's just there, existing.

    Lasith Embuldeniya is one of the guys I am looking forward to see bowl. Don't know how effective his SLA's will be against SA.

    A FC avg of 20, with a strike rate of 39.

    Hope he is Herath's replacement.

    All the best

    Shocker on the Chandimal call, however they were spot on regarding Dilruwan and Roshen.

    How many test captains have we had since Matthews was axed?

    Don't go hating on Thirimanne, he did great on this Australian tour.

    Averaged 28.

    Chandimal dropped?! SL's selectors always provide the laughs.

    Glad to see siriwardana back. Was a fan of his work when he was in the team previously.

    I'm having a hard time predicting the XI for the first test tbh

    Dimuth
    Kaushal Silva
    Thirimanne
    K Mendis
    K Perera
    Hello siri/DdS/A Perera
    Dickwella
    Lakmal
    Rajitha
    Vishwa Fernando
    Sandakan

    Batting wise I think they'll go for an attack blunting combo of Kaushal, Dimuth and Thirimanne to try and get some solid starts against the new ball, Mendis and Kusal Perera will likely keep their places but I'm surprised they've even brought DdS along given Roshen was axed, he might get one more test before he bites the dust, Angelo Perera might even walk into the top 6 after that FC feat the other week

    As for the bowlers - surely Chamika has fallen back in the pecking order after the areas he bowled in Canberra, both Rajitha and Fernando would probably be more effective in an attack that was led by Lakmal, and Sandakan was only behind Dilruwan and Akila before the former was axed and the latter banned

    Anyone actually looking forward to this massacre? Oh well, hopefully this a is a good stats padding series for Philander/Rabada/Steyn and Olivier isn't on of the beneficiaries.

    Or we could totally underestimate SL and play poorly, but that seems highly unlikely...

    I will never forgive South Africa's bowlers if they let fringe Sri Lankan batsmen score enough runs for Chandimal to not be immediately recalled in the next series.

    Just injured I think. Like Chameera and Kumara.
