We have all seen this coming for years…

Dimuth Karunaratne and Mickey Arthur

It’s finally happened. Many past cricketers warned that it would happen if drastic action was not taken to improve and save our cricket. Year after year we heard this narrative. And today it’s clear as mud for all to see – Bangladesh has truly overtaken Sri Lanka in every cricketing sense. It was only a matter of time.  The years of neglect, corruption, and mismanagement in SLC. The pathetic and bloated domestic cricket structure. The lack of will to change and evolve. 

25 years ago Sri Lanka won a Cricket World Cup. In 2000 Bangladesh became a test playing nation – they kept learning, investing, evolving, and improving. Sri Lanka cricket unfortunately has gone completely and totally the other direction. 

The misery will only continue without the right people in charge, and the will or desire for dramatic change. There is absolutely no point supporting this cricket team unless you are a glutton for punishment. This is literally an ongoing story of watching the village idiots getting mauled by professionals.

0-2 to Bangladesh. Watch it happen.

  1. Even Ireland and Afghanistan are playing better cricket.
    Stop corruption in cricket
    Hire murali / hearth / vaas as spin and fast bowling coach.
    Hire mahela and sanga as batting coach
    Wanindu is not a test bowler yet
    Dhananjaya is only a part time bowler
    Never go to any test match without 2 specialist spin bowler.
    Mickey and dimuth fault not to pick both Lakshan and Akila in this match
