  1. If Mahela becomes coach of India, it will the absolute, utmost, thundering slap in the face for SLC. This guy hates Thilanga and his cronies so much he rather coach the enemy!

    It would be mind boggling stuff! I actually hope this happens!

  2. Yeah Absolutely agree with you. SLC past present cannot see vision, they cannot stand straight forward people as they look at them as their enemies cause what they know is to loot the SLC money, yeah it will be thundering slap to theme.

  3. This would be great slap in the face if he gets it or short listed, but going by the way things happen in SL this would not account for anything……. Bookipala’s SLC will just ignore as if nothing has append and continue to suck the blood out Cricket in Sri Lanka…..

  4. Sri Lanka are well off without Mahela jayawardene as coach. Look at jayawardene, he is a good batsman on flat track against genuine pace he is a sitting duck. What was he doing now, hobnobbing with the rich in Mumbai Indians side. Lanka would be happy if this joker becomes Indian coach

    • Mahela has a good cricketing brain and he knows how to get the SL setup to work by getting into multiple tournament finals during the time he was around in the team. But unfortunately he will not even consider SL coaching with current Bookiepala lead SLC setup. It is a long shot for him to be appointed for India.
