Bias because you can't use bad language and abuse people? If you have something to say there is always a chokka way of saying it and a decent way. Try the last option and it works 100%.

Sanath is King. He wins everything. That's what champions do. What is Arjuna and Hashan doing these days? Must be playing cards with Ranil and friends. Bwwwuuaaahhaaah ha ha ha !! Asia Cup 2008 all the pada show players were ut and Sri Lanka was going to lose miserably. We were 90 odd for four wickets down. Jayasuriya smashed 125.

In Semi final of 2009 World Twenty20 he put on more than 50 with Dilshan to give us fast start. All this is forgotten because of 5 odis and 1 T20 in India??

You buggers are useless ungrateful fellows who can easily be brainwashed by the opposition. You can be convinced to hate even your own parents if you forget the deeds of our heroes so easily.

so do you think that bringing him back to the side in 2006 was a wrong move?
do you remember how he played against ENG in the 2006 ODI series?
& remember when Mahela was struggling at the other end in the early stages, he brought the team to the semi finals in the WC?

Sanath was never a consistent batsman like Tendu or Ponti.
He's a guy who plays a match winning inning may be in 5/6 games. We didn't feel that he was failing in 90s or early 2000s because we had a good middle order. Aravinda, Arjuna took care of everything when he or kalu fails. But now the situation is different. Mahela/Sanga are not consistent performers in the ODIs. that adds much weight to Sanath & everyone is blaming him for that, no?

@chamila: Well said! People forget that because of inconsistent players like Sangakakra and Mahela we suddenly turned against a batsman who we had always given a free license to. You can see one day Sangakkara and Mahela will want to open batting...

Sanath critics are all very shallow people. I dont approve of him being a politician while playing but can you blame him? The way Sangakkara and Mahela are going they want to be the only two seniors in the side and get rid of everyone like they did to Vaas and Marvan.

So I dont blame Sanath for his choices and I wont put him down. He is selected for T20 WC and that's the end of that. I will now support him 100%. Ever since Mahela and Sangakkara were given the responsibility to lead Sri Lanka, the team has fallen apart. There is no unity.

Take it from me. I know. There are two groups within every squad. The rich and the famous colombo boys and the humble, shy, rural boys. When the team goes anywhere on tour all the young boys from rural backgrounds hang out with Sanath. Only Mahela and Sangakkara hang out together, eat together, and do whatever else together.

Can you see what is really happening?

Do you think Dhoni, or any Indian team would disrespect Sachin? Not even Aravinda De Silva has scored as many 150s in ODIs as Jayasuriya. Not even Aravinda or Sachin has made a triple century in Test cricket.

This man is a legend. Why are we talking about him like this??? He should play as long as he wants.

Take some streangth to your little balls and learn to stand by truth. Whole Sri Lanka know what happened who was behind the moves. Why Jayasuriya going after politicians etc.

He was only retired from test matches. You don't know that even. Useless to debate with you.

You guys are a bunch of immature... This is a photo of him and his kids. Can you not even respect that? Do his kids deserve these views?
