There are rumours that Lasith Malinga will retire from Test cricket to prolong his T20 and ODI career. Give it a day or two and the news will break.

Arjuna was right. IPL and the riches on offer will destroy Test cricket.

Remember Aravinda de Silva's words??

Chairman of selectors Aravinda de Silva said that with their main spearhead Lasith Malinga unavailable for Test matches, Sri Lanka are going through a transitional period of trying to find the right combination of fast bowlers to share the new ball in Test matches.

"Most of them don't want to play in a Test match but want to restrict themselves to playing fifty-over and T20 cricket," he said. "Some of them cannot play back-to-back Test matches. This is something unheard of in the past. In Malinga's case we have even promoted him to the top category in the player contracts, but he is not fit enough to play Test cricket."
