Sanath, Murali, Vaas and Johnny next door

The three cricketers graced the green together, exploited the strengths of their colleagues and put their own ingenuity into the fray and took the game to the big boys on the field on their own terms. If not for the talent of these 3 cricketers we would have been still struggling like present

Very good and timely article, Yes time has come to some greats to dawn and some youngsters to rise. S.R Pathiravithana has written such a nice article on why these stars have to retire sooner or later for the good of Sri Lankan Cricket. Wonderful article I must say.

And coming to another news of Murali getting help from President and not getting dropped for the Asia Cup Finals, this is what Pathiravithana had to say in his article:

"What happened on the eve of the Asia Cup final is still a worrying one. There is no point in sending in public statements denying about something that has happened. Those insiders will know exactly what happened that evening and what transpired later on. But the end result was Sri Lanka fell by the wayside in the final.

We like to ask if there was any link between that incident and the final result of the Asia Cup 2010.

Evidently even at the Asia Cup final he played, the opposition still respected him. But, yet there was a huge void that was very noticeable. Still, one does not drop a person with the curriculum vitae of Muralitharan just like that."
