    In the case of Jayasooriya leading Sri Lanka you will need tenty players onm the field, that is nine security guards, be with him the whole time otherwise LTTE RUMP will get him on the boundary No.!

    AGREED 100 % . WELL SAID !

    Jony Wednesday, 22 June 2011 04:59 AM

    Inkn,

    Rather than using your foot why not encourge him.

    If i may ask you have you ever held the bat and if so how many runs have you scored.

    If you have ever bowled, If so how many wkts have you taken,

    If you have ever fields, if you how many catches you have droped.

    VoCha Wednesday, 22 June 2011 09:30 AM

    ah.. Kandambi. ok. Why not Mubarak?

    D.S De Silva Thursday, 23 June 2011 04:05 AM

    Sach, this morning Sri Lankan cricket board made a decision to appoint future captains who are only your favourites.

    Shafraz Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:04 AM

    Ane Tony... methana comment daapu kaatawath lankawa paradinna ona kiyala aasawak na.... and also katawath Kandamby ekka tharahakuth neme... We should have a proper policy... thats it....

    D.S De Silva Thursday, 23 June 2011 04:06 AM

    Exactly, 100% agreed !!!

    Tim Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:03 AM

    Dude, Alastair Cook is one of the best players of English side as well as a proper leader.. don't compare Alastair Cook with kandamby.. smell a cofee dude...

    Mallika Lee Chong Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:04 AM

    Why not appoint T20 king Lasith malinga as the captain.? Re-incarnate as batsmen to lead in \wonder'

    Lal Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:10 AM

    Another disaster with political interferences in the game which loves by the nation. Open your eyes people these are good lesions for all of us

    Manujer Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:17 AM

    Maliga is sick and must be rested until the next world cup and let a youngster to play so that that youngster can get ready for test cricket which Malinga hates. Let Malinga to earn a lot by playing T20 competitions, even in Australia. It is foreign exchange for Sri Lanka.

    king shah Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:18 AM

    kandambi b4 this not in the 1day o t20 squad,
    but he gonna lead the team
    its strange
    any we welcome our captain

    Chalana Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:32 AM

    Also include the t20 specialist Jeevantha Kulatunga who is currently doing very well in Scotland.

    Regi Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:33 AM

    May be 'non-playing captain' (12th man) like in other sports.

    Dilan Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:41 AM

    What a joke !!!!

    the undertaker Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:44 AM

    KAMDAMBY -IS HE A GOOD THAMBY(Brother)???for Cricket captain??

    Sammy Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:45 AM

    Kandamby is not even a regular in the team. Reveals the state of affairs in SLC.

    T.M.Cooks Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:47 AM

    How about totating the captaincy .Kandamby for the T-20 and 5 others for ODIs.so everyone in the team will get a chance .a new system to encourage players.

    Damith Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:54 AM

    Well Cook wasn't even part of the English ODI set-up, even in the WC! He too emerged from 'out-of-spot' to ODI captain! Only difference is its the T20 in Kandamby's case.
    However this is just a one match replacement for the injured captain, so you can show your rage for just 4 hours of T20 cricket!
    P.S. I too don't like this appointment! Change of stars nonetheless!

    Damith Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:52 AM

    Sanga & Mahela has already shown their reluctance to captain SL further on. I don't think they would even accept the offer! Mathews is still not certain to play...

    b.s. jayasuriya Thursday, 23 June 2011 05:11 AM

    Kandamby is a good choice as future sri lanka caption. wish him all the best.

    Jaya Wednesday, 22 June 2011 05:59 AM

    Sri lankan lions are change for cats.

    Ramesh Wednesday, 22 June 2011 06:05 AM

    This was happening earlier ONLY in Pakistan and Pakistan went from top to bottom of the table.. Now it is SL chance...

    Chaminda Wickremasur Wednesday, 22 June 2011 06:13 AM

    DULIP MENDIS', D.S DE SILVA AND MINISTER SHOULD ALSO BE INCKUDED IN THE SIDE WHERE KANDAMBY IS THE CAPTAIN

    BF Wednesday, 22 June 2011 06:28 AM

    To not under estimate kandamby. Don't forget he was a capatin when he played for Nalanda. So selectors want to groom a captain for the future.

    borusinha crew Wednesday, 22 June 2011 06:40 AM

    What nonsense Chong, ! be within laundry hierarchy and give it a wring...

    RUWAN Wednesday, 22 June 2011 06:47 AM

    Sound's like funny thing happening in sl

    Omg!! it's not a fair, how could kandmaby handle sl as a caption see guys,if they said they were decided to give capacitance to somebody who are hanging in sl team presently, we could accept that ,i can say sure there was some politics involved otherwise how could kandamby can caption


    anyhow with this situation even whoever can be caption on sl doesn't matter, i'm wishing u to success from bottom of my heart

    Matalan Wednesday, 22 June 2011 10:46 AM

    Inkn can score 0, drop catches and take no wickets, because he is no cricketer. A professional cricketer can't afford to that if he expects selection to the National team .

    sach Wednesday, 22 June 2011 07:04 AM

    Damn.... One of ma least favorite cricketers in SL.. Damn , he is leading the team for T20?????? Joke of the year may be... Haven't they seen his strike rates???? Feel so sad about our cricket.

    Damith Wednesday, 22 June 2011 02:46 AM

    What change of stars!!! From no where to leading SL! Similar case to that of the England ODI captain, Alastair Cook.

    Tom Cruse Jr Wednesday, 22 June 2011 07:22 AM

    What is Kandamby credentials to Capt SL or be vice Capt…what has he got to prove he is eligible and what is his International batting or bowling statistic……..Why don’t we have more capable and eligible candidates who have performed better than this scam back.

    nimal Wednesday, 22 June 2011 07:20 AM

    Are you joking? He is a horrible fielder afterall good fielding is one of the important qualifications to be in the T20 team leave alone captaining. He is coming like a bolt from the sky

    GanjaRabbit Wednesday, 22 June 2011 07:24 AM

    Pakistan hold the world record they once had 9 ex-captains playing. only 3 ex-captains in this line up don't be ignorant - if you don't know the subject myob.

    S. Aran Johnny Wednesday, 22 June 2011 07:29 AM

    Since when did the standard of international cricket drop to the level of school cricket?

    Arjuna R Wednesday, 22 June 2011 03:03 AM

    Commedy continue...
    Now we have a guy who could not find a place in SL T20 team a few month back leading the team. Why the hell we need selector-jokers? Pinacle would have been to ask MP-Jayasooriya to lead the ODI match.
    Jokers.

    GanjaRabbit Wednesday, 22 June 2011 07:30 AM

    the plus votes show the knowledge abt the game our aiya's have - normally ex captains are not recalled and matthews isn't fit.

    Athens Wednesday, 22 June 2011 03:06 AM

    He has played only 4 T20 Matches and with the highest score of 10 runs I don't know how he could captain the SL Team ......anyway wish him all the best

    sanjeewa J Wednesday, 22 June 2011 03:12 AM

    he couldnt even select to the World Cup Squad 3 months ago,and now suddenly he is the captain!!!??????,God bless Sri Lankan Cricket !

    true talk Wednesday, 22 June 2011 03:13 AM

    why you cant give captain for sanga , Mahala or Mathews???????

    Fayad Wednesday, 22 June 2011 03:18 AM

    Where are we heading, not in regular team for past one year straight in as captain,Jayasuriya has been selected to retire
    What a selection policy ????

    SLC has been mismanaged and bankrupt

    Please sake of future generation keep politics away from cricket.

    aswin Wednesday, 22 June 2011 03:19 AM

    Is this a political move ?

    Goka Thursday, 23 June 2011 08:05 AM

    How many U19 captains are already in the team with permanent places..

    Cricket Lover Wednesday, 22 June 2011 07:54 AM

    I think 99 % of people in Sri lanka don't know what Kandamby could add to SL team. As far as my reading he will be the best option to Captain SL team in Dilshan's absence ! ! ! I strongly believe he will prove himself as he is the most successful and experienced captain in the second tier. . . .

    ALL THE BEST KANDAMBY ! ! !

    Cris Wednesday, 22 June 2011 03:35 AM

    Am I reading the news correctly? Kandamby for T20?

    Riyazi-Dorking Wednesday, 22 June 2011 03:36 AM

    These kind of unpredictable hapennings are clear sign of world is going to end !!

    SUNANDA Wednesday, 22 June 2011 08:01 AM

    COME ON . . . READ THE GAME . . . HE IS THE BEST TO DO THAT JOB AT THE MOMENT . . . TAKE THIS POSITIVELY ! ! ! HE IS EXPERIENCED ENOUGH TO CAPTAIN SL THOUGH HE IS IGNORED IN MANY INSTANCES.

    KANDAMBY . . . . PROVE SRI LANKA CAN ! ! !

    ruggerter Wednesday, 22 June 2011 08:05 AM

    We all like to judge people without giving them a chance.Has anyone seen him batting besides on tv for sl?why was he under 19 vice captain?

    janatha handa Wednesday, 22 June 2011 03:46 AM

    what else do u think??

    CHANDIMA Wednesday, 22 June 2011 08:06 AM

    SANGA AND MAHELA WILL NOT TAKE IT ! ! ! ! KANDAMBY IS THE ONLY OPTION AND THE BEST ONE TOO ! ! !

    DISHANTHA Wednesday, 22 June 2011 08:08 AM

    I DON'T THINK SO . . . kandamby never had a political motive...If he had anythiung like that he must be in the world cup final 15 . . . Lets wish him to do a good job ! ! !

    Cynic Wednesday, 22 June 2011 08:11 AM

    Jony, why are you so arrogant? What was your record?

    RUVINI Wednesday, 22 June 2011 08:12 AM

    ABOUT TWO MONTHS BACK I HEARD GREAT ARJUNA RANTUNGA PROPOSING KANDAMBY FOR CAPTAINCY IN A TV TALK SHOW. IT WAS FAR BEYOND REALITY AT THAT TIME. BUT NOW IT HAPPEND. I DON'T THINK ARJUNA WILL DO A MISTAKE IN COMMENTING ON A PLAYER SINCE HE IS AN EXPERT AND THE BEST CAPTIAN WE EVER HAD. LETS HOPE FOR THE BEST AND WISH KANDAMBY CAN MAKE IT .

    rosh Wednesday, 22 June 2011 04:05 AM

    Give it to SJ. Nattam tawa eka paarak captain wenna denna kiyala nahayen andai

    Lakmal Wednesday, 22 June 2011 04:06 AM

    I think better we give captaincy to Jayasuriya for his last t20 match.
    His current performance is not good enough but he has done lot to our cricket earlier.

    SANITHU Wednesday, 22 June 2011 08:21 AM

    Again its an Anandian to lead SL . Hope he could repeat what Arjuna has done for Sri Lanka. Best wishes for you Kandamby .

    osanda Wednesday, 22 June 2011 08:19 AM

    THIS IS SRI LANKA

    Tony Wednesday, 22 June 2011 04:13 AM

    C'mon guys ,let us wish him all the very best.
    For the sake of the game and the sport lets hope his performance will do the talking. Cheers!

    mallika LEE Wednesday, 22 June 2011 04:24 AM

    How many ex-captains taking part?. May be a world record. SLC' s agricultural shots endanger future.

    Haththilawwea Wednesday, 22 June 2011 04:28 AM

    how come a player like Kandamby leade T20? He isn't suitable for the squad itself then how come he's going to lead SL? bambuwa...Mahinda Nandea this isn't Elle to make it a joke...SLC is being ruined by the Selectors....I think sanga is also responsible for this situation as if he didn't step down team would have moved forward.

    lnkn Wednesday, 22 June 2011 04:33 AM

    THIS FELLOW IS SUITABLE TO PLAY T-20? MY FOOT!

    Sanjaya Amrasinghe Wednesday, 22 June 2011 08:43 AM

    Low profile charactors have become leading captains in the history of the game. Hope another best choice, though not seem to be logical at them moment. ANyway all the best.

    Sue Wednesday, 22 June 2011 04:32 AM

    KANDAMBY WHO?

    Above the Crowd Wednesday, 22 June 2011 09:02 AM

    Stupid comment,Can he at least speak English. Its an offence to murder the Queen in England. Minister is no better.

    lnkn Wednesday, 22 June 2011 04:37 AM

    THIS FELLOW IS SUITABLE FOR T-20? MY FOOT!
