    Now he has been left out of Sri Lanka's test squad.

    I don't expect this to be anything less than an SA walkover. Who the hell are some of those people?

    As I said in the Australia tour thread. Man I feel for them. A schedule from hell almost for any Sri Lankan squad and never mind where their cricket is at , at the moment. One ray of sunshine is their games are in PE and Durban.

    Not sure how they can send Chandimal back to domestic in the state they in.

    SL playing so much Test cricket in a World Cup year is surprising, they usually prepare well for ICC tournaments. Maybe they've just given up on ODI cricket seeing how poor they've been at it in recent times.

    Have a shot in PE and Durban; spinniest pitches and SA's batsmen inability to play against decent spin gives them 1/100th of a shout.

    Chandimal dropped? One of the most WTF decisions of all-time.

    Imagine if this series was played in Gauteng. Sri Lanka probably wouldn't cross 100.

    Unless one of those new guys is some mystery spinner that SA have never encountered, they'll be hammered.

    It astonishes me, just how screwed up Sri Lankan sport is. Leaving out Chandimal is so stupid it would be funny if only the context wasn't so appalling.

    Hohns and Chappell are small frys compared to some of the decision makers round the traps in SL.

    I'm probably just knee jerking but my first reaction when I read the squad was that dropping Chandimal could quite possibly be the worst selection decision of all time. I certainly can't remember a worse one off the top of my head. I hope they lose every game by five innings and an infinite amount of runs.

    Mathews is injured.

    But it does make the decision to leave Chandimal out even more insane. Anyone who had any hand in it whatsoever should never be allowed to work in the cricket industry again.

    I believe Haturi is one of their selectors, no?

    They removed him from the selection panel during the tour of Australia.

    Maybe he was the only one preventing Chandimal being dropped even earlier.
