Now time for IPL. If he can win Mumbai the title he will back in SL squad. Same thing happened in 2008. After first IPL SL had to bring him back because he was in blistering form.

 Minnow bashing is over for Ruhuna.

Now they met a quality team in Wayamba, they are all out for 111.

How many ducks can one team get in any given match? lol.
