    Minister,team and SLC all have to clean their back yards and do like we did during last two decades.need a good leader like Arjuna

    Our captain Angela Mathews was talking about a white wash series..............what went wrong? I think our bowling was nor effective. Let's see what excuses will come up now!

    Hope we don't get a thrashing. But then again I won't be surprised if we do. Getting thrashed at home is even more painful.

    Shervin Friday, 30 June 2017 07:48 PM

    Nothing to be shocked of...................I remember saying catches win matches.

    Citizen Friday, 30 June 2017 07:50 PM

    Chamari Atapattu should play in the men's team

    kumaran Friday, 30 June 2017 07:59 PM

    Catches, Catches, catches!!

    Sambo Friday, 30 June 2017 08:01 PM

    There is nothing to shock Sri Lanka. The Zimbabwe must be shocked to beat Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka should now play only with school teams.

    TONY Friday, 30 June 2017 08:03 PM

    WHEN I READ ANGIES STATEMENT THAT WE WANT TO BEAT THEM 5 NIL I FELT THAT WE TAKING THEM LIGHTLY NOT FORGETTING THAT CRICKET IS A FUNNY GAME

    charithkrish Saturday, 01 July 2017 02:01 PM

    not only the trishaw drivers but also bus drives.., experienced many times of such.

    Chandradeva Saturday, 01 July 2017 03:17 PM

    Minister, Do not take step back. Please clean up our team. Discipline and unity No.1.

    Shane Saturday, 01 July 2017 06:44 PM

    Sri Lanka has to be more aggressive on the field their body language seems very very poor. Even Zim players are shouting and expressing themselves poor Sri Lankans seems to be intimidated by this Asanka has to sit them down and give a stern talking to each player highlighting the pride and respect when playing for your country, Drive this culture of winning at any cost at present they just making up the numbers with so many associates gunning for poor Sri Lanka. They have to perform and win consistently otherwise things will really turn very bad, SLC always back your players no matter what!

    SL Saturday, 01 July 2017 06:59 AM

    Do not know how true the story behind players from outside Colombo sleep inside SLC badminton court at night. How come this five star game players are in such sorry situation? . Officials,players and minister shall stop beating on the bushes against each other and concentrate on their duties and do 100% to over come with this sorry situation.I always admire Ara and Arjuna era where they had shown true sportsmanship with less facilities.

    Kadiya Saturday, 01 July 2017 07:14 PM

    You said it, Shervin. Just an aftershock after the Champions Trophy quake!!!

    Sam Saturday, 01 July 2017 08:49 AM

    This is good cricket from Zimbabwe. We should learn from them. Malinga should know that "Catches win matches". Malinga not effective now. He was the best in all time. But not now. He has dropped his speed for his Yorker. Captaincy should change. Angel's fielding setting is very bad.

    Sunil Saturday, 01 July 2017 08:56 AM

    Now it looks as though they will white-wash us in our own den.

    David G A Saturday, 01 July 2017 08:59 AM

    Angelo bad mouthed Kholi of Sri Lanka

    Ajja Saturday, 01 July 2017 09:31 AM

    I think the Cricket board did a blunder by not appointing SL second eleven team to this tour.They would have perform much better and even to lose the match would not be a big deal.India sent their second eleven team to tour Zimbabwe and this is where the selectors lack with their nutty brains.Well done Zimbabwe you thoroughly deserve this victory.

    TONY Saturday, 01 July 2017 09:51 AM

    WILL ANY OF THESE GENTLEMEN TENDER HIS RESIGNATION

    Dr. A.C.B. Jayaweera Saturday, 01 July 2017 09:58 AM

    Correct all these crooks should get out and SLC needs fresh set of administrators.

    One Shot Ranjan Saturday, 01 July 2017 09:59 AM

    Legend Arjuna should take over SLC and polish off the culprits including the minister.

    Aladeniya Kirimathaya Saturday, 01 July 2017 10:02 AM

    The main reason to lose to Zimbabwe is under-estimating their team and with swollen head all our players played the game.

    Desmond Jeromme Saturday, 01 July 2017 10:05 AM

    Malinga along with other senior players should now retire, why not the Minister and the President of SLC too, then only our Cricket will prosper.

    J Palitha Saturday, 01 July 2017 10:07 AM

    Shame of our team and all the credit should reach Zimbabwe whom played professional cricket.

    Manuel Benjamin Saturday, 01 July 2017 10:08 AM

    Mathews was talking about "White Washing Zimbabwe", but Zimbabwe did a brilliant "Colour Washing". Ha....Ha...Ha....

    Mangala Saturday, 01 July 2017 10:34 AM

    Why is Sandakan, Dilruwan and many others in cold storage? What good has AllenD and Poatha has done for our bowling and fielding
