    I believe that's how the SLCB are planning on getting them back to SL actually
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    I suppose Australia have had some good sides over the years...

    Graeme Smith had the same thought over the past 4 days - 'What to do with Sri Lanka?'
    "I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."

    Some of the clauses are ridiculous. - Cutting existing ICC bonuses that players already receive,Freezing payments to players with IPL contracts, despite the board already getting a cut out of the IPL money from the BCCI.

    All this after the SLC sold their TV rights to a company owned by Rajpaksa's(President) son for an amount less than what their previous year's rights fetched. To add to that the SLC recieved money from the ICC for hosting the world cup and also organized the SLPL. Players are being made to pay for the money the officials swindled away

    Yeah, this is a real mess. Met Angelo Mathews today morning and showed the guy a bit of support. Worst way to start off his captaincy.

    Give them benefits they ask, because they don't steal public money like cricket admins, but empower the contract so they can be dealt for a period even after retirement. Then greedy bastards cannot retire for IPL contracts.

    Turns out taking a year off test cricket did the trick
