    Send SF to Asia cup and world cup. He will tell the players either perform or get shot.Then we can bring both cups.

    The FM would not have advised re the use of guns. He would have only commented on the mind set and strategies in meeting challenges. via DM Android App

    Nothing wrong with trying all avenues to boost up the morale of the cricketers knowing the depth it has fallen to.

    The advice is, if you lose join the Indian team and try getting a position in that team.

    Not a good advisor in any form

    DEAR PLAYERS. YOU KEEP MAKING MISTAKES WITHOUT CORRECTING THEM. MY ADVICE BE COMMITTED AND NEVER REPEAT THE MISTAKES YOU DID AND SEE HOW YOU SUCCEED

    Army tack ticks for Cricket will not work. Sports is different and the War is different. What is happening Thilanga?

    SLC President Thilanga Sumapthipala has to tighten his nuts, instead of calling a Sportsman, he had called a Army Legend. Funny ....funny....
