He has been a star performer for SL over the years and it would have been sad to see him go without a dignified farewell. The SL selectors deserve credit for facilitating this. Likewise, Jayasurya deserves credit for moving on without having to be axed for good.
I suspect he won’t make it to the World Cup though he has expressed his desire to retire completely from International cricket after the event. But the sad truth is that he is starting to fall apart with injuries and can be a huge liability to the SL team despite his unquestionable talent. If he does make it to the WC team, it will be a sad reflection on SL’s bench strength.
