Unless we take a chance with OS and LS, we will never get.
Sri Lanka for instance has taken a massive risk in playing Akila Dananjaya. He hasnt even played a FC match. But the guy could end up huge spin prospect for Sri Lanka. SL may not have a Murali but they have three potent OS in Senanayake, Randiv and Akila. They have a quality SLA in Herath. A good underrated leggie in form of Kaushal Lokuarachchi. And then the mysterious Ajantha Mendis. So talk about variety in spin.
BCB is just not getting it. Forget short term success with WI. Take a chance with offies and leggies.
S prasanna is another good leg spin prospect for SL.
