Arjuana ur was a good cricketer..... Thant is. You are a bad person, a bad politision, and a corrupt person, who did not resign after the 96 world cup. Did not gave chances to the young players then, and took the same players to the 99 world cup,,.. goot hammerd by everyone in the world cup , could not even advanced to the 2nd round. Due to shame he did not return to sri lanka with the team after the world cup....... now he is trying to tanish the good name of Sanga and Mahela..

No this man Arjuna Ranathunga is suffering from inferiority complex and he is over estimating about himself also he is jealous with present day cricketers who are earning far higher than he earned those days. so this man is not suitable for any position in the cricket Board. if this man comes to hold any position in the cricket Board that means the end of srilankan cricket because this guy is having a hidden grudge with legends of srilanka cricket. it is better to keep Ranatunga family many distances away from srilankan cricket Authority. we all know what Dhammika,Nishantha and Arjuna did to srilankan cricket when they held the top positions in the cricket Board. No questions about their cricket playing ability, they were good cricket players but when they came to the management they were the worst ever authorities, bungled everything. so the best thing is to keep this Ranatunga family away from srilankan cricket. we have seen so many cricket captains throughout the world who led their countries to win the world cup but none of them is overestimating about them like Arjuna. this man Arjuna always think srilanka won the world cup in 1996 due to his own effort, what a bull shit and mad thinking is that. it was due to team effort we won the world cup in 1996. now it is history but this guy still talk about that victory only by under estimating all the other victories srilankan cricketers achived. this means the Jealousy nature of Arjuna so he is not suitable to hold any position in the cricket management field of srilankan cricket.

If he comes I am sure after couple of years majority of the team members will be in Australia, England and NZ.

Surely every cricket follower in SL don't want Arjuna to contest in SLC elections.
Sanga and Mahela would be remembered as great role models for any cricketers and to any youngsters because of their greatness as cricketers and as gentlemen.
But Arjuna possibly is one of the worst role models to follow for anyone. He is jealous with all achievements Sanga, Mahela and other cricketers achieved.
There are great people like Sunil Gavaskar, Ricky Ponting, Michael Holding who are encouraging young players to come good and acknowledging great legends therefore Arjuna critics them. He critics Sanga and Mahela because they bat always at number 3 and 4 without giving the chance to youngsters. I believe that when your country plays an international match, you have to play the best XI. Unquestionably Sanga was our best batsman at 3 and Mahela at 4.
Arjuna says that he bated at 7 to give opportunities to youngsters. But everyone knows that he batted down the order to only to keep his place and his captaincy because of his failures.
Surely he will contest in the upcoming elections, without any doubt he will win. And he will ruin SL cricket.
Angelo Mathews is the best captain in SL at the moment but he has to be aware of his captaincy with Arjuna.

No - I think he is carrying too much baguage and his Brother needs to be held accountable for his past sins. SLC needs to get away from appointing guys who have no idea about administration and make a professional appointment once and for all. We also cant have this non-sensical "election" for SLC - this is an international sport that needs to be run professionally.

Anyone with good leadership skills and with the good cricketing knowledge CAN contest for SLC election, therefor YES Mr. Arjuna can.

Sri Lanka's cricket millionaires and those aspiring to be millionaires need a good dose of discipline and a lesson in correct priorities.

No one is better qualified to deal this out than Arjuna.

Besides he is the only person who has ever lead us to world recognition.

Use him if he is willing to give is time to an almost hopeless cause !
