In a few words…

Bureaucracy and cricket.

So today Sri Lanka Cricket named the squad for the upcoming ICC World Twenty20 Cricket World Cup to be held in the UK in June. Many of us were eagerly awaiting for this day. After some good performances in the domestic tournaments as well as in the ongoing IPL, we were hoping against hope that the bureaucracy that has crippled Sri Lanka Cricket for so many years would not screw with the team selection.

And guess what! It was pretty much dead-on.

It was nice to Lasith Malinga being brought back into the squad. He deserves it to be honest. Not many of you may know this but there is more to his disappearance from the cricket scene than just a knee-injury. Once again bureaucracy of Sri Lanka Cricket is to blame for this. Need i say more?

It still remains to be seen whether our cricketers can put it all together and perform. Time will tell.
