This article is nothing but an attempt by Michael Roberts to gain recognition with the new sports authorities.

He could have written about Russel Arnold or Jack Robinson it wouldn't have mattered a hoot to him !

I hope the new people don't fall for this !

Here is a prediction. Kumar and the family will settle down in AUS or ENG and may become the Batting Coach of one of them.

It is noticible the number of SL stars in the IPL but lets not fool ourselves, you need to be impact players to get a contract. The amazing thing is SL are reigning T20 world champs and been in the previous 2 finals.

@Sirisena well said - the moment has arrived Mr Minister, lets not mess around with this, lets fix this once and for all for the generations ahead. This is not a touch and feel mission but a cut and bury mission.

Fair question and I didnt realize Martin Crow's record. In an earlier article on the same matter I raised questions on some folks who hadnt played much test cricket (a South African - Barry Richards may be) but was pointed out he was an outstanding first class circketer which is outside these guidelines.

I am also not sure about some of these guys who played yonks ago. No one really knows much about the conditions and most of these guys only even played in Eng and Aus. We have no footage to see how good or bad they were just 'stories'.

I agree with the write surely Ara should be in there on hir record alone and Ranatunge put SL on the map and changed the way the game is played.

Yep fair enough provided the we understand what interim means! Previous regimes used 'interim' but in reality it meant years.
