Is it a good move to appoint one captain for all formats in cricket?

Yes No

"I'm very disappointed that a national captain, within a few months of retirement, has been retained by another team at a World Cup," Sumathipala had said on Friday. "You could go to a club, a province, an IPL kind of team, or a county. But this is a World Cup. You can't have a player who has just left your country's team joining a competitive nation.- Thilanga Sumathipala


Good point,nice to see atleast now SL board is thinking and worrying about tactical information providing,but sad thing is Sumathipala only worry about england and Mahela,why can't he see Dilshan, Malinga...etc players who dedicated their life on IPL,cause who knows they also can share our tactical information to india,also since this IPL devil has started then Srilanka have been defeating to India continually...think about that the only T20 they played with youngers and without any IPL SL players then they won the match against India...Chandimal has refused to join IPL so he is the only trusted captain and we proud about him...
