    It will be good to construct the 2010s, I'm working on the 2000s now. I did this in Ashes so I'm going to look back at how I put the 2010s together.

    Updated Sri Lanka 1990s.

    I have moved Chaminda Vaas and Marvan Atapattu to the 2000s, though they started their careers in the early 90s, especially in Atapattu's case, it is the 2000s where they have made the greater impact. Make no mistake the 90s still have stars for days, Jayasuriya, Murali, Gurusinha, Aravinda, and Arjuna, and the bowling, though not as strong has the workshorse, Wickramasinghe, Ravindra Pushpakumara and Champaka Ramanayake to back up Murali.

    Uploaded Sri Lanka 2000s.

    This squad has talent allround and I believe is the strongest of all the decade squads. Though the 90s would run it close. The side has two late additions in Chaminda Vaas and Marvan Atapattu who have decided to join them from the 90s. Arguably both players were more at their peak in the 2000s despite their cross decade longevity. There is one omission from the decade squad in Regana Herath who could have made this side, and even though their is no Murali he has opted to play in the 2010s squad.

    So leading the squad is the brilliant timer of the ball, Mahela Jayawardene. Jayawardene is an all time great and will command respect from his team and what a team it is.

    Opening the batting is the flamboyant Tillakaratne Dilshan. he opens the batting with the experienced, Marvan Atapattu. At three is Jayawardne, and he is backed up at 4 with another All Time World Great in Kumara Sangakarra. (IMO better than Gilchrist). At 5 is the reliable hard to get out, tough, Thilan Samaraweera. At 6 is the lively Russel Arnold always willing to chip in with runs and wickets. At 7 with the gloves is Prasana Jayawardne. At 8 is the brilliant Chaminder Vaas. At 9 is the dependable, Nuwan Zoysa, at 10 another pacer in Dihara Fernando and at 11 with spinner Upal Chandana. Chandana a good spinner will be happy that Murali and Herath, both eligible for this squad have chosen squads either side of this one, so he will get a chance to shine.

    In reserve the selectors can call upon, all rounder Jehan Mubarak, the tall batsman, Michael Vandort, the dashing opener, Avishka Gunawardene, the allrounder Farveez Maharoof, talented attacking batsman, Chamara Silva, and finally all-rounder Charitha Buddhika.


    Thanks to @DalePlaysCricket as I am sure I've used one or two of his bases, that I've either tweaked for his excellent art work, or added perks if needed.

    Thanks for the bat, logo, uniform, stadium makers!

    Enjoy!

    I have had fun putting this side together and it is more competitive than I at first thought - at least on paper. There are so many options at ODI and T20 I will leave that up to you. The test lineup, though lacking in stars, still has competitive fire, and does have an all time great test bowler in Regana Herath, a superb T20 bowler in Lasith "The Slinger" Malinga and another magicical bowler whose flame burned out too quickly, in Ajantha Mendis.

    The side is led by opener Dimuth Karunaratne, along with the experienced Upul Tharanga. At three is Kusal Mendis, and at 4 is one of their stars of the decade in Dinesh Chandimal. At 5 is one of their iconic players in allrounder Angelo Mathews who on his day can turn any game. At 6 is one of many players who can play keeper, I have chosen Kaushal Silva, though Chandimal, Kusal Perera, and Niroshan Dickwella can keep ably.

    At 7 is another excellent allrounder is Dhanan De Silva, and at 8 is the excellent Rangana Herath. Herath could have played in the 2000s but was overshadowed by the Murali. In reality he really emerged at the end of the 2000s. At 9 is one of the best short format spinners in all time, in Ajantha Mendis. Mendis was seen as the future of Sri Lankan cricket however though his star shone bright for about 5 years, he never quite reached the heights predicted for him. At 10 is the hardworking pacer, Nuwan Kulasekara and at 11 will be his opening ball partner Lasith Malinga to give the side star quality.

    In reserve there are many in this squad of 22. With T20 star Thisara Perera, batsman, Liharu Thirimanne, among them. It is a deep squad even reserve most have a case to be in the top 11. So now all of Sri Lanka is complete.

    Thank you for the logo, uniform, bat and stadium makers!

    I think most of the players are mine, but I have used bases off the academy for the rest, so credit goes to those unknown creators. I have tweaked and adjusted as usual.

    Enjoy!

    Updated West Indies 79/80 Touring Squad to Australia.

    In my opinion there are 4 great West Indian Touring Sides. All of which are on the academy. The 1950 (The three Ws), the 1963 (Sobers, Kanhai, Worrell, Hall and Griffith). the 1984 (Blackwash, et all) and the 1979/80 to Australia, the first West Indies side to win in Australia.

    The 1979/80 is the unleashing of the "4 horsemen of the apocolpse". Though the Windies had been experimenting with a 4 pronged pace attack, the chemistry of Andy "Fruity" Roberts, Micheal "Whispering Death" Holding, Joel "Big Bird" Garner and Colin Croft was the creation of the brooding image of dangerous West Indian bowlers that would destruct batting line-ups until the end of the Ambrose/Walsh era.

    What is impressive is Malcolm Marshall the greatest ever of all the bowlers in West Indian cricket was a reserve here! So I here I have tweaked a few bats, and images. I have swapped out my Greenigdge and Haynes and kept my ratings, they were swapped for the improved artwork of @wasteyouryouth Love the synergy!.

    My avatar of course is my celebration of a team that sometimes, is overlooked for the 1984 Blackwash team, and while the 84 touring side is legendary, can that batting line up - very similar except instead of Richie Richardson, the 79/80 squad had often forgotten Lawrence Rowe and Alvin Kallicharran, Gomes was a reserve in 79!

    Uploaded Sri Lanka All Time Greats, there are 35 players in this talent laden squad. I have put together a squad of 35. This includes 3 Test Lineups using 33 different players, and an all time ODI X1. This should be useful for an All Sri Lanka League.

    1st XI
    Jayasuriya, Atapattu, Sangakarra, (wkt) Jayawardne, Aravinda de Silva, Ranatunga, (c) Vaas, Somachandra de Silva, Rumesh Ratnayake, Muralitharan, and Malinga make up the first XI. The only trouble I had was getting Dilshan in above Atapattu and Herath over the pace of Ratnayake. For balance I went with Ratnayake.

    2nd XI
    Dilshan, Mahanama, Dias (c), Tillakaratne, Samaraweera, Gurusinha, Goonatilleke (wkt), Ajantha Mendis, Ravi Ratnayake, de Mel, and Herath make up the 2nd X1. On this one Goonatilleke is the controversial choice as he had a very short career as he joined Sri Lanka Arosa but is widely considered Sri Lanka's greatest ever keeper.

    3rd XI
    Kaluwitharana, Sidath Wettimuny, Chandimal, Duleep Mendis (c), Angelo Mathews, Russell Arnold, Prasanna Jayawardene (wkt), Opatha, Pieras, Ajith de Silva, and Don Anurasi (last seen crippling @blockerdave round out the X1.

    Thisara Perera and Sri Lanka AROSA skipper, opener Bandula Warnapura are unlucky to get in any side.

    ODI XI
    Jayasuriya, Dilshan, Sangakarra, M.Jayawardene, Aravinda de Silva, Ranatunga, Mathews, Vaas, Ajantha Mendis, Malinga, and Murali make up a formidable ODI challenge for any team in history.

    Who would be in Sri Lanka T20 all time?


    Enjoy!
