Tharanga deserves ago as he has scored runs and brings experience that we desperately need with both Anji and Chandi out so I get the selection. I would have still gone with one of the younger guys, the last two we gave an opportunity to (Dhana and Mendis) did really well. Also this going back wards to our recycling tried and tested players that has really got us no where.
How can you divide player's salary by number of international runs he scored to calculate such a rate? Time he sacrifices to practise and his fielding efforts or runs he scores in first class matches are not considered at all for his payments? If that player suddenly starts to perform exceptionally well and the pay rate becomes Rs 10 per a run due to his exceptional performances, will the player get an exceptional pay raise as Rs 10 per a run is too low ? How about dividing a member of parliament's all expenses (salary + vehicle permit's price + official vehicles' price + other expenses ) by number of words he speaks in the parliament? For some MPs a word might cost more than 1 million.. Lol
I totally agree with Arjuna.. I always don't agree with him specially when he criticizes even good things done by current administration. Rewarding for good performances is great as Arjuna explains. However, if payments come to players' minds when they bat etc that will definitely affect their performances.. That also encourages players to go for personal goals rather than playing for the country. Also I condemn sports minister's disgraceful comments about paying Rs 57000 per a run.. How can you divide a player's salary by number of runs he scored to calculate such a rate? Time he sacrifices to practise and his fielding efforts or runs he scores in first class matches don't consider at all for his payments? If that player suddenly starts to perform exceptionally well and the pay rate becomes Rs 10 per a run due to his exceptional performances, will the sports minister also mention about that new pay rate? Obviously no..
Yes like jeewantha said it is too early to decide, there are more talented cricketers in srilanka. Must wait patient until the veteran retires.
Well he just wants to criticize whatever Sumathipala does, that is not good for SL cricket. He talks of cricket & money , today all over the world players are playing for T20 money. He objected to that also but all international players are after T20 money. So there is no problem here paying the players extra on their wins. What Arjuna forget here is in this way SLC expenses are reduced by reducing its employees' salaries which is a strategy of any big organization when it requires. It is simple as that, stop trying to criticize for the sake of it. Probably these players who have been hurt could have given him the fuel to come out & criticize the SLC, look after your X's tree Arjuna not cricket. Your advice to saving money & your brilliance is well demonstrated in that.
They look good.But too early.
You can't ignore Kaushal & Aponso.
Akila Dhananjaya got the variations to become a good limited overs spinner
I just heard a news from Swananawahini Live@12, that there is going to ba 3 match ODI series in Zimbabwe right after the test series. Has the tour schedule been changed?
@Anonymous do you really not know the answer to that question?
You are talking about a country where everything from police, to judges, to board positions, to politicians are easily influenced!
To add things final selections need to be approved by certain groups/people...within the board and the sports ministry
Yes a manager gets their pay from % of money they make for their player. Whilst the money is coming in no one is going to speak out about anything, or what methods were used even if you were aware. Speaking out might cost future negotiations/deals with that agent hence impacting the player.
I said in my first post take the managers out have a elected (by players) a player's association representative to to deal with the board on players behalf. That way all players will get equal representation regardless of whom they are managed by. Is that not a fair and reasonable way?
Thanks for informing Asanka. Will you be playing? Can we meet the players and take photos??
bunch of grade A d****es
