Let the old man in peace and enjoy his last years of life.
WTF is going on here? Surely this is what cricket in SL is all about - the fans enjoying the music at the game. There are hardly any fans at test cricket in SL and when a few show up, the ICC reckons they know how to deal with it and shut off the music.
For those of us who recall what the stands in the Windies were like in the old days - full of wibe and life. Then they built the new stadiums and broght in all the rules and killed off what was as essentially the soul of Windies cricket.
Not sure about this folks. Sure Marvan may not be the best coach, but you need a coach surely? If there was no need for a coach why do we go through so much trouble to get a coach? Just play without a coach and see how that works out.
I reckon the most worrying part today as opposed to any other time in the past 20 years is, looking ahead, who will take the wickets and score the runs? In the past even at dark times, you felt there was soemthing to look forward to.
I am afraid I find this immature and chidlish like. This is a top diplomatic post and surely playing years of sport doesnt qualify you for such a job. I would be equally childish and say Sanga will probably succeed at such a job, lets say based on the 12000+ test runs! but the point is it makes no sense..
Its Ashwin now, it was Yasir and if there is pace and bounce it will be Bolt or Johnson - so what about the opponents batters? Yep the concern is SL's total lack with both bat and ball is being exposed badly. Bowlers has always been a problem except for a few but I dont get why we are unable to bat properly.
I think KS is playing with the President. I feel that he thought that the offer from the president as a "small jab" at him for preferring SL over Surrey. By pretending to accept the offer , Sangakkaa has put the president in a spot. Some are criticizing the President for this offer.
Do you think KS will go for a field that is new to him when he is so proficient and well accepted in cricket? It is not logical. He is smart enough to know that if he takes up the High Commissioner position, career diplomats from England will make a joke out of him just like Ashwin did during the 4 innings in the last 2 test matches.
I hope this incident will teach our President not to "Run his Mouth" and act like a leader of a country. If really meant it, he should have invited KS for a private meeting to discuss the matter.
The way IS TO GO MARVAN'S HOUSE. Then he will teach you how to play centuries against bangaladesh and zimbabwe.
yes yes this is sri lanka cricket. FROM DARK TO DEEPEST DARK. the reason is MONEY. WE ARE REBUILDING. SO I WANT TO ASK FROM MARVAN, what is the cement?? Is anjelo???
@ Praveen De Silva :when Dilshan was the captain we beat South Africa in South Africa for the first time. And we didn't do that bad in the England test series too, though we lost the 3 match series 1-0.
