It is being reported that Sri Lankan Skipper Angelow Mathews is suffering from a calf injury.  Sports injuries are a common phenomenon, in international arena the players who are not 100 per cent fit had been sidelined for extended periods of time.

Sri Lankan cricket rankings are currently rated poor, in ODI rankings, the Champion Trophy is a golden opportunity to lift our standings.  With a Leader who is constantly on sick   list, it does not provide motivation for the rest of the team members.

Views had been expressed in the past to allow sufficient time for Angelow to be fully fit, but the selectors have ignored the calls for unknown reasons.  The management of players is an essential requirement and even the use of rotational systems have been used in other countries.

Time left for the stand in Skipper Upul Tharanga is limited.   We wish him courage and enhanced leadership skills to take Sri Lanka to the next level.

    This is a joke. His sickness seems to strike when things look daunting. Thanks to the timing of his sickness, his captaincy win/loss record (still dismal) looks way better than what it should be. He must be removed from captaincy at least now. He is a good batsman and should be allowed to play if fit to play. Some fans say he is retained as captain for “reconciliation”.

    Playing Kusal Mendis in ODIs is risky. He hasn’t proven his worth in number 3 in the ODI team. No doubt he is an excellent Test player. I hope he is either left out or he proves to be a good ODI player.

    We wish the stand in captain well. If form guide and numbers are anything to go by, this will be another Champions Trophy to forget.

    SRI lanka will never win a trophy as long as we have this booky mafia handling the affairs of cricket in Sri Lanka. Selection board, Trainers are all corrupt. Changing player’s in every match is the cause for losing matches in my view. Players too responsible for losing matches. Watching them playing we can judge whether they play to win or lose. They rarely show any fighting spirit at any time while playing unlike other teams. No fun or excitement like olden days in Sri Lanka cricket nowadays.

    Endia plays 12 players but SL is playing only 10 players!!

    Once again AM has selected WRONG BALLERS to help Endia score 300+.

    ASELA and Danushka kept out because they have a LOW ECONOMY RATE.

    IPL money talks!!

    Our cricket team is like the Yamapalanaya govt. Endian money!!

    ARMY ASELA won the match again.

    At last some consolation WIN for SL. But really AM should have restricted ENDIA to BELOW 300 if he had used ballers better.
