    He was never a fast bowler. Anyway we should appreciate his services to the nation.

    then what was he?

    gdj100 Friday, 21 July 2017 02:59 PM

    Did he bowl spin? Last time I saw he was bowling fast.

    REEZ Friday, 21 July 2017 03:27 PM

    Bro. He is medium fast. That's what he wanted to convey

    We need fast bowlers who are aggressive.. by this i mean who can bowl bouncers targeting batsman's head or toe crushing yorkers as required and do it with a bit of a mean streak and facial expression. We have Dushmantha Chameera and Lahiru Kumara who have the pace.. Just need to instill this in their minds..Bowling length alone is not enough..Also need to develop quality swing bowlers (like what Vaas and Kulasekara did).. SL have got to keep up with the strides made by the rest of the cricket playing countries.. or else it will be difficult..

    Need not send bouncers. Glenn McGrath and Richard Hadlee (both over 400 wickets) proved that decent pace with line and length and subtle variations enough. though Murali spun heavily, Rangana has more subtle variations enough to get wickets. More ways to skin a cat.

    does not make any difference.

    Time to get Allan Donald and Dennis Lillie or Thomson. Allan Donald to look after U19 and Lillie or Thomson to look after the national side. We need to spend big for 'big' results.

    Need a change of Minister.

    What about SLC and selection committee and the SLC hgh up chair warmers all creaming away the lucre earned by players.

    eranthaperera Friday, 21 July 2017 03:40 PM

    Next should be Gurusinghe, then they can reinstate Mathews and Ford., Lol.....

    John Saturday, 22 July 2017 08:50 AM

    There is no point in bringing Donald or any great bowler until we improve on our physic which is very important for fast bowling. Dont eat meat and make a dharmishta samajayak. Then problem solved.

    Ramanayaka was a good player.
