Very True Siri. But the unfortunate collateral damage it has caused is Srilanka Cricket's future. Our young and talented cubs don't get the needed training to become better. BeforeI it was Sumathipala now Nishantha!! I don't know whether God can save Srilanka Cricket.?

Anonymous, we can only hope. It has become a case of " Do as I say, not as I do". This is a shameless and blatant abuse of power and a clear demonstration of self-interest trumping principle and good business sense.The tragedy is that this is not a one-off episode. SLC decisions are replete with perks for high-ups that fly in the face of reason and decency. Time for a revolution against such blatant plundering for the benefit of a few individuals. In which dark corner is the Sports Minister hiding?

Byron, in the halls of SLC commonsense has been long overtaken by greed and self-interest. The Rs. 40 million would be far better invested in grassroots cricket at the school and club levels. What is the benefit of giving anybody a Rs. 8 million vehicle? How does that improve Cricket in Sri Lanka? This episode is a clear example of individuals riding the gravy train. Of course, paying struggling domestic cricketers a little more would be out of the question while money can be wasted on perks for high-ups. Where pray tell is the Sports Minister in these episodes? Is he also part of the boondoggle? What a shocking and blatant disregard of propriety and efficient management!

This unfortunatley I fear is where cricket is heading to with the greedy 3 in charge. The key missing element from what should be a sporting event is an equal playing field. The big 3 by definition of their stand have taken away the element of an equal playing field and what better example than the entertainment event called the CL20 in place of what should be a sporting event.

Perennial Antagonist has finally won the battle. Business as usual as far as for SLC.. Well!! unless someone who has the power vested in him gets rid of this Ebola Virus, Srilanka Cricket is going to be the looser. It's sad state of affairs..it's a sad day for Srilanka Cricket. I thought commonsense and decency will prevail.
Gone are the days when guys like Punchihewa, Malalasekara, Rienzie Wijetilake, Hemaka Amarasekara who served for the betterment and love for the game. Now people serve for bulking thier wallets.

They condemn the players for "chasing money" when they want to take part in IPL. They're professional sportsmen yet they often do not get paid by the board. They're expected to play for free as it's an "honour" to represent the country. How come the board is then allowed to squander scarce resources on over inflated salaries and luxury cars? Shouldn't they be doing it for free too? Isn't it an "honour" for them to "service" the country? After all they all have numerous alternate sources of income, don't they?

To me Aravinda , Sanga & Mahale are legends of batting department , But Aavida is the most of match winner in his days . Sanga and Mahala also did but not much like ara.

I couldn't care any less about CLT20.
Occasionally I may look at a scorecard in a paper, or see video of a stunning catch on twitter, vine something like that. But that's the extent of my interest.

The fact that IPL automatically gets a certain amount of teams through tells you this is no equal or fair competition!

I was hoping for a 3rd option that said "I don't care"
I thought this was discussed before when he made his announcement
