Arjuna will create chaos in SriLanka cricket if he is appointed head of Interim Committee. His pretentious criticism of his brother will come to an end and together will handle cricket like their personal proprty. God save SL cricket.
Elsewhere there is an article re Arjuna being sponsored in an advertisement though he showed he was clean,

Mr Rodrigo with all due respect is this actual information or gossip? is the news source reliable?

That's the only way he can come back via interim committee. He chickened out from contesting this time, perhaps mortified to face his nemesis TS.

Even when he was a government MP, with blessing from you know who and government support, could only manage to get 7 votes out of 145.

His constant rants and whining about players has become a standard joke amongst cricket clubs. Of course he has support from his buddy boy Rex, AR's mouthpiece in the mainstream media.

All the big talk about contesting and cleaning up SLC came to nothing, just another 'Pusswedilla'.

@Marcian my friend Arjuna is entitled to his opinion. Lot of people pay attention to it. There is a lot of valid points behind his antipathy towards IPL.

We all have noted the problems in SLC and clubs and mentioned that good ppl are reluctant to contest because of this. Please consider for a second that perhaps AR is also reluctant to contest because of this.

Lot of people have buddy boys. perhaps we should respond to the points they make.

Theekshana, I did not say AR is not entitled to his opinion, and what gives you the impression that lots of people listen to him, I could say the opposite of that is true as well.

If people doesnt listen, the media would not bother with his opinion. media might have their angle but would def be interested in their ratings.

If Mr AB doesnt contest we say he is a gentleman thats why he doesnt contest.

The cricket clubs themselves have become a joke based on the people they elect.

Marcian more than anything, AR is a legend. The minimum we owe him is not to listen to gossip about him.

All I said was his viewpoints are a standard joke amongst the cricket clubs, which is a true fact.

I have already responded with points i.e SLC elections, voting record and why he's not contesting. Perhaps that struck a raw nerve with you.
