Sangakkara’s blunders
Posted on October 2nd, 2009

 Ananda De Costa

Sangakkara is overrated as a captain, especially with regard to his intelligence.

He was quick to blame fielding for the loss against New Zealand.

He should learn to accept his own mistakes and not to blame others.

The following bowling figures are the proof of his big mistakes and lack of quick thinking ability.

One can easily see that the comparatively economical bowlers have not been utilized correctly.

Why Kandamby and Mathews were not give more overs in first match ?

Why Jayasuriya was not used properly in the 2nd one ?

These are not the only occasions such mistakes were made.

His behaviour after getting captaincy also declined shatply.

He should do some meditation under a proper Buddhist monk rather than under an Indian Guru.

    Well, Sanga made terrible mistakes, so should we give him another chance or make Murali our captain?

  2. cassandra Says:

    No, not Murali as captain. I think the best qualified person for the job is the Sports Minister.

  3. Amda Says:

    Get Kandambi in as the captain early.This is the only way to have another Ranathunga like quality captain in the side

  4. piyal Says:

    C’mon guys we got a excellent orator – dont you think he is handy at the podium – especially defeat after a defeat who could give some face saving dubious answers
