@sachi-You forgot to mention how he has got everything right about the IPL! 1st of all, IPL is a private tournament! If you agree with players picking the IPL is better over playing for your country, shows your love for the country! He said we would lose to bangladesh in the near future, and we did! Our cricket has been going downhill, and it has! He said all this 5-6 years ago, and now its all coming true! Get your facts right, then talk! :)

@Dhyan,

First of all I was not discussing IPL or its effect on cricket in SL. If u can read the title of the article u can understand we are talking about a different scenario. This is not a problem with IPL, a similar case could have popped up even if we go for a cricket series like Ind vs SL . So don’t bring IPL for it. No one is talking abt whether IPL is good or bad. We are discussing forcing the cricketers to boycott IPL for JL banning SL players in IPL matches in Chennai.

And ur claim “If you agree with players picking the IPL is better over playing for your country, shows your love for the country!” holds no substance. No one has chosen IPL over SL cricket. It is just u ppl making a mountain out of a molehill.

Love for ur country is a dangerous word malli. In our Lanka many has spoken for love for country but what we’ve all seen is them getting rich. Asking someone to do something they want ‘for the love for country’ is holding the country for ransom. That is what AR is doing at the moment. Yep holding the country for ransom.

Yes SL cricket is going down. And it is MOSTLY because of inept management at SLC headed by ur uncle and which was headed by ur father too. Don’t tell me AR tried to change things but got sacked. We do read papers malli and we know the man. The worst thing done in SL cricket is politicization which began with ur father and his then friend TS during CBK rule. So don’t come here ur father predicted SL cricket downfall cos ur father and his family has a stake in it.

I want to ask u for the ‘LOVE for the country’, why do ur bappa under such criticism and humiliation still continue to hold positions in SLC. He is largely responsible for the current status of bankruptcy in SLC. Doing many illegal and corrupt transactions and not being accountable to the financial mess and still holding the post of secretary ILLEGALY? Where was this love for country then?

AR betrayed his country when he abstained from voting against the recent impeachment of CJ in parliament. Where was his love then?

I know u re his son and quite passionate abt his father. But malli defending ones father in everything is not what a responsible son should do.

So malli before asking me to learn facts, read the comment before replying to it. Cos ur reply doesn’t even talk abt the issues I raised there.

Lastly and most importantly, AR mona tharam naraka eka unath hitapu cric captian kenek widihata respect ekak thienawa. Oya eyage putha widihata methane awith chater wenawata api kamathi ne wisheshayen ape dambadiva pals lagen. E hinda randu athi karaganna epa

yo @sakthivel, may be we SLns shud start treating Ranatunga the same way BCCI is treating Kapil Dev? Eh? No recognition, banned from any and all BCCI projects, No monetary gifts for him(while BCCI gave FAT cheques to other former players during recent Pak vs Ind series), last time i heard BCCI is still waiting for Dev to appologise from them! Yup, that's definitely the way to treat ur former WC winnig Captain! :D)))))))))

BTW, am pretty sure Ranatunga is STILL more athletic in field than both R.Ashwin & Zaheer Khan! :D) He can walk faster than Ashwin running between wickets :D)))

Both @Dhyan and @Sachi have valid points to a certain extent. A mixture of points u two mentioned are the cause for SL's down fall!

Yo yo honey singh. Sakthi bro i think this sl fan have started watching a lot of HISTORY CHANNEL instead of news.lol. Coz the things which he is talking about dev are nothing but old masala. If he seriously think that he knows too much about indian cricket then his ears should have spared some wax out about some latest news about dev and bcci :D.

Ofcourse we know that he is good in diverting topics to irrelevent discussions :))).

And as he said in his earlier comment keep a note that he better knows ranatunga is better runner than fast bowlers (maybe a little faster than malinga also) even these days .he he. lol.

@ Uppercut_7 : Comparing Ranatunga and Kapil dev is not appropriate. Because he go against the board and started his own league(Now Kapil dev is in BCCI PROJECTs also working for IPL), But where AR is really a good man sitting within and blaming players.

@ kk_mix412 : Off-course bro, its clear diversion. We should not go off topic :D

How about sending Ranatunga for Olympics 100m, Still UP7 may tell us that AR have good chance of beating Usain Bolt.

going off topic???? who started TALKING about AR's body weight and start calling him NAMES in the very "#2 COMMENT" of this article?????? instead of talking abt wat he actually said in the article :D) that's ON topic then?

i guess it's the nature of the indians when they have no answers they start with the insults and when someone answer back at them the same way, they go crying to mommy! :D)))

PS: NO AR wudn't beat Bolt in 100m, but he will DEFINITELY beat Zaheer and Ravi 'the Queen Mary' Ashwin :D)))))
