Default Is Sri lankan cricket finished?

No Sanga,No Jaya,Dihlsan only one dayers and T20.
Mubarak is 34.
Herath drop from test/one dayers and looking at decline at 36?Time may have come on him.
Sri Lanka are 7th in tests and lost the first one dayer against Pakistan and looked well beaten.
Discuss?

They are in a transition period. They will struggle for some time until the new players can find their feet in the international arena. The last time they were like that was during late 90s to early 2000s.

Rebuilding. They need to have one of Chandimal, Kushal, Thirumane etc start getting more consistent. And Tharanga needs to step up. He should be given the Vice-Captaincy. The bowling actually looks promising. They have that new 90MPH pacer. And that new spinner, who caused Herath to be dropped needs to get better control - his rip/drift is excellent.

They've got some decent enough fast bowlers, Matthews is stepping up, chandimal needs to step up and same with thirimanne and kusal, they have the talent but the question is will those talents develop to the level they need to?

Problem lies with their team selection. So defensive that they only field 2 specialist bowlers. Our team got stick for playing only 3 frontline bowlers(and we have a world class allrounder). Now imagine how weak Lanka's bowling is. Need to rope in specialists or a genuine allrounder

With prasad, chameera, herath, lakmal, eranga, kushaul, prasanna, d.perera they have the makings of a decent attack, but herath could go soon and prasad is getting older.

They are definitely on a decline. Mahela and Sanga tried to build a core team with the young guys for awhile now. It simply hasnt happened. All their young guys are of the same level. No one sticks out as real talent.

I expect them to be smashed for a while,probably 7/8th in tests and could go down to anywhere in the one day table,will be above Afghanistan,ireland(who will get no games) and Zimbabwe.

A good coach would change this team. They have enough talent.

Talented players are not performing. Matthhew is their only man.

Eagerly waiting for the series against SL next year.

Dilshan would be 43 by the next world cup. He is fit on the field but his batting has regressed

Australia usually avoids tests at home against Sri lanka as they have always been poor travellers(and the crowds stay at home),apart from Sanga no one else put up a fight,even Muralli had a poor record in Australia.With them being 7th in tests don't see us playing them at home in the near future.One dayers they always get an invite,but if they become poor at that they won't be invited either.

I think they'll be fine. They'll have a tough time against top Asian teams like India and Bangladesh. They'll do fine against Pak, Afg and others.

How is Australia's record in test series subcontinent? (outside of Bangladesh, who are the new comers in Test)

SL have always been an incredibly mind numbingly boring side to watch if you're a neutral. Pakpassion just had a thread and SL are dominating the votes even ahead of Bangladesh who plays Tests to draw. Thats saying something:

http://www.pakpassion.net/ppforum/sh...=1#post7902951

But they've been a good side that punches well above their weight. But I don't see the current core group having the same success as they have the past 2 decades. They only have one exciting player and that is Chameera.

This is the key point.

Massive difference between Sri Lanka under Graham Ford/Trevor Bayliss/Tom Moody than the one under other coaches. The players, the talent is there, but the alignment, the direction, the tactics, the preparation-none of that is there.

Atapattu is a very very average coach, maybe good enough to be a batting mentor, but nowhere close to being a head coach.

Sri Lankans say its Hathurusingha who should be coaching SL with Atapattu as an assistant. Unfortunately some lousy decisions made by previous board has resulted in such a fiasco.

So to answer the OP, is SL cricket finished. No way. They still have an excellent system in place to produce top notch talent. But results on the national level wont improve until and unless they get a better coach. And we all know what a good coach and a bad coach can do, like we faced with Shane Jurgensen, Trevor Chappel, Mohsin Kamal.

Yes. SL is done for time being. Fans like Shade and others should adopt BD as their favourite team. BD U19 boys been thrashing them like 50 - 5 over the last few years. If this is anything to go by then their senior lads are due for a serious whipping over the next few years. They were merely kept together by Sanga and Mahela. Board didn't invest in the future.
