Maharoof was in the same situation in 2009 but he opted to play for Wayamba instead of his IPL franchise Delhi.I don't think Sanga can't do the same.But in the very next IPL auction no one bids for Maharoof.That might be the reason behind Sanga's decision :)

Players like Michel Hussey, Pollard did that and will do that. They have no option. This is a domestic t20 tournery. Not a country level.

@Viraj are you sure that maharoof got picked for that final 15 man squad of DD and he said "no" to the IPL franchise ? any reliable source to prove it? or maybe be he didn't got picked at all so he had to play for Wayamba ? sorry i didn't followed that CLT20 that much closely at that time.

yes, I don't think Delhi dropped him because he was their main strike bowler that time. found some source.. "Maharoof had the option of representing either Delhi or Wayamba and he opted for his home team" http://www.espncricinfo.com/t20champions...

Every one has option. He was not put on gun point while signing for for IPL franchise.
But unfortunately Sri lanka board and SLPL don't have enough money to pay.

A good percentage of the Indian populace are slaves, that is bondage labor, the highest in the world. Parents selling their children to bondage labor. You want me to pull out stats? Dumb Bugger, War Machine!

@Rukshan :
Atleast indian parent don't sell their childrens to Poor Sri lankan.
This is india's internal problem.

But every one knows that CLT20 is a private BCCI having 50% stake in it.
Why u people are begging for BCCI'S money?
Wether u play for hyderabad or whatever.
The money given will be of BCCI, CSA, and CA.

In Real sense u people are slave.
Even BPL, CPL have more prize money than beggar SLPL. :-)
