Get back the Sri Lankan Legends into national team or otherwise ban this current national team from international cricket. Sri Lanka Cricket Board is a gold digger

Now we know that how our current national cricket team has been exposed at international level struggling in terms of consistency, performance level and fitness. Both national cricket team and Legends team are playing at the same time as we can clearly witness the standards between these two teams. The legends team is playing at high standards whereas the current cricket team is ruining the legacy set by those legends.

Sri Lanka Legends have now won all 4 matches they have played in this year's Road Safety World Series (defeating South Africa, England, West Indies and Bangladesh) within just one month and now they are leading the points table. On other extreme, our current national team has now lost 4 international bilateral series within a space of 3 months (losing to South Africa, England and West Indies). Look at where is our national cricket team is heading.

Our legends team defeated big teams like South Africa, England and West Indies which had world class impact players whereas the current team losing to South Africa, England and West Indies which don't have much big match players like the previous England, South Africa or West Indies team had. For example current West Indies team doesn't have Brian Lara type player, current England team doesn't have Kevin Pietersen type player. Most importantly the Sri Lanka Legends team are playing without Sangakkara and Mahela but has been putting a fantastic show going at great guns in India despite lack of training due to the tough COVID-19 pandemic.

Sri Lanka Cricket Board is a gold digger which has not shown any intentions to uplift the standards of our cricket team. The guys in the cricket board simply wants to fill their pockets with millions of money without really taking care of the sport. The cricket board wants their cricket team to play at International level simply to earn money from broadcaster revenue. So the only way to stop these corrupted guys from robbing public money is to ban Sri Lanka from International cricket. Or else we should convince our senior legendary players who are currently playing in the Road Safety World Series to once again play for the country for the sake of rescuing the legacy and pride of our cricket team.

At least we are fortunate to witness our former players like Dilshan, Tharanga, Sanath etc once again on the field. Something to cheer for the Sri Lankan fans who haven't enjoyed this kind of experience after 2015.

Hi I am a Sri Lankan here and I apologise for the derogatory comments about Namibian cricket team by a Sri Lanka Cricket press release

I don't know how many of you here watch or support cricket but I have noticed Namibia has been showcasing a lot of potential as a cricketing nation in recent times. Namibia have also qualified for the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup as it also marks the first appearance for them in a T20 World Cup. I appreciate Namibia's greatest achievement of qualifying for this tournament.

Yesterday I noticed that one cricket article written by a Sri Lankan journalist related to Sri Lanka cricket and in his article he apparently made few predictions which actually cannot be accepted. He literally downgraded Namibia cricket team by stating that "Namibia will be a cakewalk for Sri Lanka" during the qualifying round of the 2021 T20 World Cup. We all know how good Namibia has been in its journey to this tournament and this journalist has made such statements and remarks without researching about the remarkable progress of Namibia cricket team. The most disgraceful thing by Sri Lanka Cricket Board is that they have issued the article by his as the SLC's press release without even foolproof or spellchecking the entire article. Such ignorant attitude by top brass of SLC is also unacceptable and it is not the right way to address your opponents like this just when the T20 World Cup is nearing.

As a Sri Lankan fan, I feel offended and feel sorry for Namibia cricket team and Namibia cricket fans for this press release where SLC has disrespected their opponents like this. To be honest, this overconfidence attitude by Sri Lanka is going to put Sri Lanka under more immense pressure and our own cricket team has been struggling consistently for last few years with so much issues and now Sri Lanka has been forced to play in qualifying round in order to progress to Super 12 stage. Once upon a time Sri Lanka used to be a dominant cricket team at global map but now the team has fallen to a record low in past few years.

I am pity sure Sri Lankan cricket players surely would not have this kind of attitude and I ask humble Namibia fans not to show your frustration on Sri Lankan cricket team just because of one particular journalist's insensible article. All the good luck for Namibia for the upcoming World Cup due to take place next month.

A discussion on India's best choice team - Ahead of the T20 world cup, and with the Sri Lanka tour being played with a second string team followed by IPL, India has a lot of probable combinations for the T20 world cup without much international cricket to test them.

Well sorry for yet another XI debate after all time best Test and ODI XI debates, but it seems that I’m loving it. So anyways, there does not seem too much of a point in debating about an all time best T20 XI. With the T20 world cup upcoming, let us pick India’s strongest XI. Some things that I have kept in mind while presenting my pick are as follows. Request you to present your suggestions on it.

  • The most important factor to be considered should be the player’s performance in international white ball cricket, T20I in particular.
  • Since this is an ICC event, experience is a plus.
  • For some promising players who have yet not made a great mark in the international circuit, could be selected on the basis of their performance in IPL. However, please consider players who have been performing well for a longer time, and refrain recommending players who are rising stars, and have performed well for only about one season till now.
  • The playing conditions are that of UAE, and so team balance can be chosen accordingly. I am picking 2 spin bowlers, 8 overs of spin should suffice I guess.
  • 5 bowling options is the bare minimum, 6 is fine, 7 might just be overkill.

So, my pick goes on as follows:

  1. Rohit Sharma : Nothing to say about that.
  2. KL Rahul : I do lowkey like Shikhar Dhawan a bit, and his performance as an opener has been good in IPLs, T20Is, as well as ICC tournaments. Still, for the team balance, KL Rahul seems to be a better choice at the top of the order, with Dhawan as a backup opener.
  3. Virat Kohli (C) : Nothing to say about that.
  4. Suryakumar Yadav : Has been performing well in the middle order since quite some time for Mumbai Indians in the IPL. Due to his technically sound batting and 360 degree hitting ability, I somehow like him ahead of Shreyas Iyer, but could have been the other way round as well on a given day.
  5. Rishabh Pant (Wk) : You could say Ishan Kishan is also on similar lines as a contender for WK Batsman in T20s, but I would still back Pant for this. He is a great middle order batter, and has an X-factor with him.
  6. Hardik Pandya : A hard hitting all rounder, who can finish games well. Could be a useful bowler too.
  7. Ravindra Jadeja : This position did require an all rounder, who can also bowl 4 overs on a given day. Jadeja might not always have been the be
