In Sri Lanka, it's very common to refer to English as 'Kadda', but not many people know the meaning of the nickname.

'Kadda' came from the word 'Kaduwa' which means 'Sword'. English has been used as a sword by many powerful people in Sri Lanka after the English left our country to scare away talented, educated people who weren't good at speaking in English.

Yes, Dilshan's English isn't as fluent as Sanga's or Mehela's, but he can get the message out and that's more than enough.

I'm not sure why our chaps continue their vain effort to express themselves in English when they are less than fluent in the language. Rather than allow them to make public spectacles of themselves, an interpreter should be made compulsory at such interviews and our boys should make the choice of which language they express themselves in! These boys are sportsman and not expected to be multilingual surely? Chaps...be proud of your mother tongue I say!
