    There are a few young talented players, give them time to mature, we will have a good team under Angie

    NO EXCUSE BRO...

    Poorna Monday, 04 July 2016 05:30 PM

    Apologies accepted but all cricket fans should understand that this is to proceed until the juniors consolidate themselves. More to loose...

    Its difficult to win matches when people like Chandimal are playing test innings during a one day match just to secure their place by playing selfishly. via DM iOS App

    Not you Angi but the jokers at SLC and selection committee has to accept 75% blame.

    Prabhath Monday, 04 July 2016 07:10 PM

    Let's try next time.

    Manuel Benjamin Monday, 04 July 2016 07:17 PM

    True, the whole team is weak. But Mathews cannot escape, its under his leadership, hence he is responsible for the defeats. Agree !!!

    Cobra Monday, 04 July 2016 07:19 PM

    And remember you can't win 'em all all the time!

    Desmond Jeromme Monday, 04 July 2016 07:20 PM

    Anjelo you are a good player only, but not a good captain who could lead a team.

    Manuel Benjamin Monday, 04 July 2016 07:21 PM

    Mathews cannot control his team like Sanga

    Kadupol Jothywansa Monday, 04 July 2016 07:22 PM

    Best thing is Mathews' should quit cricket and take rest.

    Bubbule Banda Monday, 04 July 2016 07:25 PM

    We suspect while watching all the matches in England, Mathews' would have "Match Fixing". May be Anjelo also would have been tempted to earn quick money.

    Manel Monday, 04 July 2016 07:27 PM

    You don't have to give apologies. It is the cricket board who has to offer apologies for it inability to have foresight and proper planning for the game.

    lawry Tuesday, 05 July 2016 12:41 PM

    Hi Kadupol,Did you commit suicide every time you were down with fever? Mathews has an excellent record as a captain and a player

    kukula Monday, 04 July 2016 12:57 PM

    Dear Captain.This is only a sport.I am sure you and the young team will do well in two years time. Among the younger players there is potential.

    Sincere Monday, 04 July 2016 01:10 PM

    Come on Angie. Defeat is also a part of the game. Let us do it again. You can. We have confidence in you and the country is behind you!

    ananda Monday, 04 July 2016 01:16 PM

    Victory and defeat is part of the game. Cheer up Anjelo. via DM Android App

    Former player Monday, 04 July 2016 01:18 PM

    Not to worry Angelo, we are right behind you, these things happen to the best of sides. Hope we have a successful home series against the Aussies.

    ANTON Monday, 04 July 2016 01:22 PM

    SORRY ANJI, SOME OF YOUR FANS THINK THAT YOU ARE A SUPER MAN , SPIDER MAN OR A BAT MAN DOING ADVENTURES AND MIRACLES..

    kk Monday, 04 July 2016 01:42 PM

    DID HE SOMETHING WRONG via DM Android App

    gamunu Monday, 04 July 2016 02:27 PM

    Angelo must improve his leadership cedentials. H is a damn good player but lacks ability to get the best out of others. On the field he must support and advice younger players more rather than staying aloof. He must realise he is the leader and lead by example. As I said before he is good player, he can only get better by improving his other skills.

    Alamof Monday, 04 July 2016 03:46 PM

    Angi. .. We are not criticising you or the team because you and the team are the best in our country. Right now, most of the other international teams are better, but that's the way life is - you win some, you lose some. But no one is criticising you.

    sobers Monday, 04 July 2016 04:43 PM

    Captain himself can't win matches. It is a weak team.
