You guys seriously think this is a good thing? A government MP as chief selector?

I like Sanath as a player and person but not good to have a politician as chief selector. Logard's report fell on deaf ears.

Relax fellas, it's the same newspaper, that reported Kandambi s gonna be Test captain!! :D)

I mean, wud he accept such position while he s still playing for Kandurata Warriors? SLPL?

But then again this is SL! Sanath might become chief selector who s playing the SLPL, and Kanda might become Test captain!! LIVE IN FEAR fans!! :D)

PS: i wud probably have to give up watching test cricket if that happens tho, :D)

@ UC_7 - he wants to become the ultimate superstar, once he played for the national team when he was the MP, then was a commentator during the next series and went off midway to play the hongkong sixers :D
