Default Sri Lanka include Six fast bowlers in Twenty20 contingent

Twenty20 World Championship, 2007-08

Sri Lanka recall Hasantha Fernando and Wijekoon

Cricinfo staff

August 9, 2007


Sri Lanka have recalled allrounders Gayan Wijekoon and Hasantha Fernando in the 15-member squad for the Twenty20 World Championship in South Africa in September. Mahela Jayawardene will lead a full-strength squad that includes as many as six fast bowlers.

Fernando, the right-arm seamer and lower-order batsman who has played two Tests and seven ODIs, last toured Bangladesh with the senior team in early 2006. Wijekoon, the left-arm seamer and top-order batsman, played the last of his two Tests in July 2005. Another notable inclusion was Kaushal Lokuarachchi, the legspinner, who got the nod ahead of Malinga Bandara and Upul Chandana. Lokuarachchi makes a comeback after being overlooked for the recent home series against Bangladesh.

All those currently playing county cricket in England - Muttiah Muralitharan, Kumar Sangakkara, Lasith Malinga and Chaminda Vaas - have been included to boost the squad. It was earlier reported that Muralitharan might be rested, with the tour of Australia up ahead.

Squad Mahela Jayawardene (capt), Sanath Jayasuriya, Upul Tharanga, Kumar Sangakkara, Tillekeratne Dilshan, Chamara Silva, Chaminda Vaas, Farveez Maharoof, Muttiah Muralitharan, Lasith Malinga, Dilhara Fernando, Hasantha Fernando, Gayan Wijekoon, Kaushal Lokuarachchi, Jehan Mubarak

Nice to see 6 fast bowlers in the squard also nice to see all rounders Gayan Wijekoon and Hasantha Fernando back in the team, two 20/20 specialists. Just what we needed a "left arm seamer and a top order batsman" in Gayan Wijekoon.

dont know about those two newcomers, but they ARE a strong contender of the title, for sure. I guess the keyplayers would be Vaas, Murali, Sangakkara, Jayasuria, Mahela and Malinga. I hope they win both of their group matches against Kenya and New Zealand.

I cant see the point in carrying such passengers in the team.

Vaas would be a huge asset in twenty20, he is econmical and gets the occasional wicket, malinga (being a strike bowler) however will be a risk, if not in his flow, he lets a few no-balls and loose deliveries that batsman score big runs off.
