I notice that Akila Dhanajaya has been snapped up at his base price of $20,000/-. The result of this will be that he bowls his heart out in the nets and all the batsmen in his franchise will learn how to play him.

For this laughable sum of money (in international terms) we have "SOLD" our best spinner of the future ?

When is this rubbish mismanagement of our players going to end !

If the player wants he can

If the player wants he can turn down the offer, no one forcing anyone to play, Obviously for these guys 1000 $ too a big amount of money, let alone 20,000.

@Ravana u may have a point

@Ravana u may have a point machan, but cricket is livelyhood for most players these days, and especially for a kid like Akila this wud be a huge a mount of money!

Wat we can do is hope that he DOES NOT bowl his heart out in the nets, and DOES NOT expose his variations in the nets :P

It wud be ideal, if the same thing happens to him as it happen to Chandimal in last IPL. Didn't play a single game, but still got PAID, and was fit for all SL games!

Thanks uppercut for

Thanks uppercut for understanding what I am trying to say. The problem is our administrators' almost always end up HOPIN without doing anything about it.

Here is a suggestion :

SLC sets a base price for Akila based on what they perceive his future value is going to be. If that price is realised they let him go . If that is not reached they agree to match the highest bid and he stays.

If the high number is reached Akila agrees to pay a percentage of that amount to SLC for a couple of reasons :

(1) To repay the investment slc has made in him.

(2) For agreeing to pay the lesser amount should the eventuality occur.

Agree with Ravana, Shame on SLC

Same thing happened to Nuwan Pradeep last time around, he was bought by RCB and was a net bowler for the whole of IPL and got injured when he was playing is warmup matches for SL. SLC should take responcibility for approving players to participate in any other Leagues. In this instrance I do not think even our own batsmen know much about Akila and MSD will end up knowing everything about him. It is the same thing happened to Suraj Randiv and Malinga. These two bowlers are not as effective as they used to be against India any more.

I do not minf sending young players like Kushal to IPL, it will definitly benift him. But Akila is the future of spin bowling in SL and he has lot of mistries. Why would SLC want to expose him to IPL? This is like selling your country

The right to work in any

The right to work in any trade, for any price and for anyone is a part of your fundamental rights boys. SLC is one employer. Akila can work for any number of employers for any price he likes.

how about when our players

how about when our players playing in county? what we say ? " ohh that's a good opportunity get used to that conditions " i think the same rule applies to IPL , this will be a golden opportunity to akila to get used to indian conditions . see how well malinga did in that finals in mumbai , see how well NZ t20 side did well against india in india , this all happens thanks to the IPL ,indian conditions , that huge crowd is not a mystery to other countries anymore( but still indian umpires are a mystery :P) so it up to the player to be who you want to be .. try to see the positive side of the IPL , get used to the conditions . unfortunate we haven't travel to india in recent times to prove my point ( last time when we travel to india after the IPL was not a bad tour at all , umpires spoiled the test matches but we did ok in the ODIs, won a t20 so not bad ) but i'm sure our players will do soo much better if we get a chance in the future thanx to this IPL. so finger crossed lets hope for the best :)

@Dias, bro no one is

@Dias, bro no one is disputing Akila's right to choose his employer, but last time i checked, i cudn't obtain 'dental benefits' from one company and 'work' for another company. i guess wat am trying to say is SL players are nurtured starting from their 'diet/nutrition, fitness, medical benefits by the SLC. so they do owe SLC at least a 'cent's worth. but if the IPL is nurturing the SL players and bearing all their cost from the club level, then yes, they wudn't owe SLC anything!

but that's not the point Ravana trying to make i think. this forum s abt how IPL franchise is scraping the 'cheap labour'. Akila got sold 'kunu kolleta'. that was the concern,

PS: this is NOT to say, that we should all boycott IPL, SL players deserve the 'big payday', but selling their talents cheap is something they shud be concerned abt!

@Uppercut_7 i don't think

@Uppercut_7 i don't think there's any conspiracy behind akila's price .CSK, KKR are the teams who needed a spinner in that auction at that time , so KKR picked sachithra after a battle with CSK , so CSK left as the only franchise to bid for akila ,so no one to fight means he will sold out for the base price , if akila did pop up in that list before sachithra i'm sure akila would have gone to a higher price as well.

@sdf Akila came before Sachithra

I did follow the auction online on cricinfo, Akila did popup at the auction before Sachitra according to cricinfo, there weren't any bids for him at that time (live update). but at the end of the day it was mentioned Akila was taken by CSK. Same thing happened to Kushal Perera.
