Some part of this is correct - true in a professional point of view, players are humans who need to earn as much as they can while they are fit. Players should find the right balance - for example Pietersen, Warner,Watson all took part in IPL as well as fulfilling their national commitments. When it comes to Malinga, he took an extreme route by aliging himself more with the IPL, just like the mercenaries from the carribean. He could have at least made himself available for a few selected test tours such as the England tour and the SA tour. At the end of the day he has lost respect of many of his Sri Lankan fans.Whether he cares we don't know. As Fans what we want to see is SRI LANKA being victorious, as for the IPL do we really care about it?
BTW who cares about Rex clementine? He once called a promising young offspinner a chucker. Clearly he is after his own agendas, and is best disregarded as a credible writer.
