    this is only the test team. Thisara perera's name will be on the one day and 20/20 list.

    Faizal Thursday, 14 February 2013 07:35 AM

    Dinesh Chandimal will be Mathews' deputy but will lead the national side in the Twenty20 format " From Cricinfo

    Lucky Weeramantry Thursday, 14 February 2013 11:43 AM

    Sanath Has Done a Great Job. Only Missing Link Tisara Perera.He Is A Match Winner.

    Lucky Weeramantry Thursday, 14 February 2013 11:48 AM

    Where Is Tisara Perera. He Should Be In The 20 / 20 Side.

    Fox 077 Thursday, 14 February 2013 07:39 AM

    Looks Sanath knows his onions. Good move.

    Waz Thursday, 14 February 2013 07:52 AM

    Para,prasanna,thilan were out of form.so there's no unfair issues..

    Fayad Thursday, 14 February 2013 07:57 AM

    Malinga is the best choice for T20

    saranga Thursday, 14 February 2013 08:02 AM

    what happened to thisara perera

    Sports Lover Thursday, 14 February 2013 08:02 AM

    Good Choice. Sanath has started off well.I would have liked anjelo to lead the T20 too until Chandimal gets experience.

    YoYo Thursday, 14 February 2013 08:07 AM

    Mathews was the most likely choice but would have preferred Thirimanne as VC. Chandimal is toooooo.

    Palitha Weeratunge Saturday, 16 February 2013 03:07 AM

    wrong choice.Chandimal is a test prospect. Anjelo is a T20 expert.Tissara Perera is in his best form for the shorter versions.Have few more in the pool and rotate depending on form and fitness.

    ANTON Friday, 15 February 2013 09:46 AM
