    Two flash in the pans innings from two batsmen. One selected, the other a reserve. The most deserving batsman relegated to the 4th position in the Reserve List. Anyway, it was a tough ask for the selection committee...

    I don't know why Dhananjaya is in the team, he is a talented player but not T20 material. Banuka should replace him. Extremely happy with the squad. SL has a good chance to make it to the Semis

    Spot on, depriving another player to come up. This is called selfishness.

    A formidable squad but instead of Dananjaya de Silva the committee should have opted for Chamika Karunaratna (very potential for t20 format) Anyways wishing the team...plz bring us the glory and trophy

    SLC will do everything possible to make the leading fast bowlers injured before the test series in England with that scheduled LPL. Wonderful!

    Lahiru kumara missed out it seems others got the nod ahead of him. It is a bit baffling but I hope they know something I don't know.
