    Then the team will sleep walk all over

    TAKE IT ON THE CHIN DEAR.

    Gobbaya Saturday, 13 July 2013 02:22 AM

    Learn from Mistakes Angelo!.YOU HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO!.

    Jagath Leanage Saturday, 13 July 2013 02:24 AM

    Sad to say.According to my knowledge ,worst ever captain ever we had. I think he is big headed. Otherwise why did he employ inexperienced bowler to bowl last over to the most experienced Indian batmen?

    kumar Friday, 12 July 2013 06:47 AM

    It's an International conspiracy

    Sam Saturday, 13 July 2013 02:47 AM

    Ashton Agar is of Sri Lankan descent, and has a number of cricketers in his family tree, his grandfather Nala Hewawissa played cricket for Dharmarajah College Kandy

    Mahela Friday, 12 July 2013 04:03 PM

    Our second tier batting including the Bowlers never contributed as batsmen. This is the difference between our team and India. More batting practice needed for our bowlers. Also there should be more cordination between the two batsmen and a better game plan needed to score more runs without getting out.

    Nihal Amarasekera Saturday, 13 July 2013 03:13 AM

    Too heavy a punishment.

    Dilan Friday, 12 July 2013 06:59 AM

    Great. Not what we needed !

    Saman Friday, 12 July 2013 10:56 AM

    Sorry to hear.Our second order batting and our Bowlers should contribute to score runs.
    Also our team has to mentally prepare when batting. Good luck.

    Fayad Friday, 12 July 2013 07:02 AM

    ICC should consider is this policy help the game of cricket, likewise on LBW umpires call. cricket rules change very frequently but with lapses.

    joseph Saturday, 13 July 2013 03:50 AM

    The word 'Banned' is too harsh. 'Prevented' should be better if Cricket is a Gentleman's sport.. Angelo is a Gentleman. Whenever he gets a wicket ,he is moderate in celebration unlike so many other Cricketers who show a lot of anger when they get a wicket.

    R.R Rohan. Friday, 12 July 2013 04:24 PM

    Rambukwela's son will look for an underground door in the pitch.

    sach Saturday, 13 July 2013 10:48 AM

    Any difference?

    nahraf Saturday, 13 July 2013 12:00 AM

    our team is not mentally prepared for finals. via DM Android App

    sobers Friday, 12 July 2013 07:09 AM

    You will always be a better captain, when you learn through mistakes. Take it and face it like a gentleman.

    len Friday, 12 July 2013 11:02 AM

    Wise man will learn by watching others mistakes than his own. That is the better way.

    sach Saturday, 13 July 2013 10:53 AM

    I have a gut feeling he may turn out to be a great captian

    V.Sathasivam Saturday, 13 July 2013 04:09 AM

    Mistakes are not offences. God bless.

    hasitha Friday, 12 July 2013 11:24 AM

    He doesn't deserve to be in the team even!!! such a lousy player

    mohamed Friday, 12 July 2013 05:32 PM

    good news for SL team because mattews is not a good captian becasue he does not know how to use is bowlers.he have lack of ideas in middle so pls change the captain in the SRI LANKAN team then only our cricket team will win the matches. after mattews become as captain of SL team didnt win a match because of mattews tactics. he doesnt know how suffle the bowlers in slog overs. thats why pls pls change the captain

    Renu Friday, 12 July 2013 05:36 PM

    Chandimal is another saleepwalker who does not understand responsibility

    Lyza Friday, 12 July 2013 07:41 AM

    Salt to the wound! Could have shrugged it off without a care if we had won the match

    gon rala Friday, 12 July 2013 11:29 AM

    So once again SL's IPL slaves proved that they are eternaly in debted to their dollar masters in india

    gon rala Friday, 12 July 2013 11:30 AM

    not a chance as long as they slave for indian dollars for IPL

    nalaka Friday, 12 July 2013 07:53 AM

    can we ban thirimanna for slow batting

    Tharindu Friday, 12 July 2013 07:59 AM

    who will captain the side now? Chandimal? :P

    tony Saturday, 13 July 2013 05:17 AM

    Its US dollars not indian dollars

    Sam Saturday, 13 July 2013 05:20 AM

    b hgbuhbgh

    Santha Friday, 12 July 2013 11:54 AM

    very good.......

    David Thompson Friday, 12 July 2013 11:55 AM

    Good. So Rambukwela's son is the obvious choice for the Captaincy.

    Dave

    Gayan Friday, 12 July 2013 07:09 PM

    IPL orders i think, these IPL henchmen do not need any other order to lose to India.

    be fair Saturday, 13 July 2013 05:48 AM

    I only hope he wont sleepwalk @ 35,000ft on the return journey thinking about the ban

    ravi Friday, 12 July 2013 08:25 AM

    "... Lankan captain was found guilty of the offence" and you "sobers" telling bull talks

    Ahamed Deen Friday, 12 July 2013 12:05 PM

    The selection was very poor by the selectors who left out Thisara Perera. The final match missed Sachithra Senanayake. They should have included Sachithra instead of Kushal Perera. If Kushal to be played, he should be opening the innings or of an early dismissal of an opener, he should have been played one down. In this case he should be included at the expense of Thirimana or Chandimal. India has bowling all rounders as, Jadeja, Raina, Rohit Sharma. Mathews should consider him as a batsmen and always we should have 5 bowlers. Sachithra would have been more than useful and hats off to Dhoni how he concealed the tail and braught the victory to India. You cannot play down as luck favours him and yesterday was complete perseverance from him to win the match

    David Thompson Friday, 12 July 2013 12:12 PM

    Well, it's time for Rambukwela's son's turn to Captain the Lankan team.

    David

    Farook Saturday, 13 July 2013 06:00 AM

    Chandimal should be kicked out of the team. He kept off the IPL to fine tune his batting and it has worked the opposite.
    Mahela should captain in the interim.
    Even Angelo cannot emulate the former captains. The best captain was Arjuna who turned things around and did much for Sri Lanka cricket.

    Huna Friday, 12 July 2013 12:20 PM

    Chandimal can lead the team when he locate his missing brain

    shahim hiday Friday, 12 July 2013 08:39 AM

    So who is captain for first two matches ? Chandimal ?OMG!!!

    KaluSudha Friday, 12 July 2013 08:43 AM

    Videshiya Kumanthranayak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Kumar Saturday, 13 July 2013 06:26 AM

    Angelo is a all-rounder but not suitable to be a caption to srilanka. His brain is not capable to play the caption role but good model. Experiance is allways with Mahela. Capt Dilshan and vicecapt Tharanga is better than Mathews (X-pune caption) ,chanthimal role.

    teri Friday, 12 July 2013 11:02 PM

    Shame \mathews coulld not choose a better bowler for the last over when thestakes were inour favour 15 runs 6 balls went 6/4/6 ----. teri.

    Waz Friday, 12 July 2013 08:55 AM

    Your good days are yet to come, definitely you will enjoy them!

    Mama Friday, 12 July 2013 11:38 PM

    Excellent Idea and is welcomed

    Siyambala W Saturday, 13 July 2013 12:04 AM

    Exactly, DL formula no where near reality, put India in finals. Miscalculations ultimately in SA's favour. SL draging and destined to sail without captain in all aspects and departments......!

    aziz Friday, 12 July 2013 09:09 AM

    he should be shot for the shot he played!!

    What A Joke Friday, 12 July 2013 09:13 AM

    Once again, runners up as always used to be.

    sss Saturday, 13 July 2013 12:24 AM

    great the bowl will travel like a drunk person - no one can hit

    saman kumara Saturday, 13 July 2013 12:30 AM

    I think the person who balled final over in the tri nation cup should be banned, not Angelo.

    Erantha Perera Friday, 12 July 2013 09:35 AM

    Angelo is destined to be a great SL captain for sure. We may need Mahela or Sanga to captain the team in his absence as Chandimal may be selected only on sympathy for the matches.

    Hoodwinked Saturday, 13 July 2013 12:37 AM

    It is like Angelo being gored by a bull after he fell from the tree, (like a slip between his lip and the Celkon cup).

    Ifham Friday, 12 July 2013 09:43 AM

    Yes, that made us to continue as bridesmaid.

    Ane Anichan Saturday, 13 July 2013 07:59 AM

    For the reason of slow over rate, Bravo was penalied for one match whereas Angelo for two. Why this discrepancy?

    GonAliya Saturday, 13 July 2013 01:06 AM

    No impact to the results at all

    Amila. G Friday, 12 July 2013 09:48 AM

    Something fishy , thirty runs eight wickets, Was there a order I wonder.

    anura Saturday, 13 July 2013 01:13 AM

    well said david

    Sammy Saturday, 13 July 2013 08:27 AM

    This is what happens when there are ex-captains in the team. They would want to give there advise too often and thereby delay the process. Also, Angelo may need to be more assertive but with ex-captains and senior players being around it makes the job a bit difficult. The senior players are invaluable though.
