Really cool pic. I just hope he will score big and not be like how Jayasuriya was for Dolphins in SA. These guys are getting greedy now playing too much cricket. If he gets injured no playing for SL.

It's nothing to do with greed. They have to make a living when they can.

Unlike you and I (we have normal jobs) who can carry on earnning  for rest of our lives, Cricketers only have a very limited shelf life (although there are some exceptions).
They have to make the most of it when there are opportunities available.They too  have families to support.

Adoration of fans alone  are not going to pay their bills.

Also bearing  in mind that their places in SL national team are not guaranteed these days. 
Less than 2 years ago, Dilshan was dropped from the national team, had to work his way through the A team tour of Zimbabwe to get back in.

Still, there is no question of Dilshan's commitment to Srilankan team when  you consider that he  played for SL with 9 stitches to his nose during PAK series. 

Remember Pakistan terror attack? These guys put their lives on the line to represent Sri-Lanka. 
Not fair to doubt their commitment to the country.

Gorgeous photo and good quality too. But no video of this series which is really sad.

I wonder what camera he used? It's amazingly clear.
