Also, Arnold comes from St Peters College in Colombo...the alma mater of one of the selectors (Amal Silva)...this has been a huge factor in bringing back and retaining Arnold (Silva is the sole selector on tour, at the cup). Ranjith Fdo also comes from this same school - explains the background to the regular comments that we have to put with re Arnold from Ranjith.
I seriously dislike the anti-Arnold sentiments that are expressed by some people on these forums and i Sri Lanka. The guy is a decent cricket who has been repeatedly slagged off for unfair reasons.

Arnold's 20 off 20 was perhaps one of the deciding factors in Sri Lanka's victory over England, while his 97 run partnership with Dilshan almost got Sri Lanka up to a defendable score against South Africa.
