  1. It’s a shame that IslandCricket allows posts from this site CricketAge to be posted here. I remember Hilal himself said he is going to stop CricketAge articles from sharing on IslandCricket.

    CricketAge site is toxic. The way they write is really low quality and they are like the toxic facebook groups that attack our players. Don’t be part of this people, if you have Sri Lankan Cricket in your best interests.

  2. Thanks for the information. I didn’t know about it. There was another article someone has shared from Cricket Age making a big allegation against one of our selected players that he was trying to bribe a selector. Its a total lie. Our admin should stop sharing articles from Cricket Age.
