    Let's refer this to the third umpire and he will make a TV decision after which the USUAL game goes on.

    How about a competition for the number one slot?

    Monday, 31 May 2010 10:05 AM

    Is that after excluding the MPs?

    Monday, 31 May 2010 10:08 AM

    Who are the culprits and why they did not bring before court?

    Monday, 31 May 2010 10:12 AM

    And also Mr. Arjuna Ranatunge said the same.

    There seem to be a few good eggs in the Cabinet Basket.

    thats part of the Chintanaya !

    Monday, 31 May 2010 10:30 AM

    Excellent and well said. Keep going don't fall to old fall to old category of roughs. At least one politician came up with truth.

    Monday, 31 May 2010 11:34 PM

    Correct and all the Politician's should not get involeved with sports not only Cricket

    Monday, 31 May 2010 11:39 PM

    hats off to mr Rajapaksa appointing the right man for the job.

    This shows that the minister has no idea of what he is talking about. There is far more corruption outside than in the cricket board. DM once accused SLT of being corrupt when he was minister for telecommunications when he couldn't give jobs to his stooges because the Japanese CEO refused it. This may be a similar case. The police are obviously corrupt. But most corrupt are customs, courts (specially magistrates), harbour and even offices like BOI which have been repeatedly exposed. The SLCB is far down in the list. What is the minister going to do about it?

    Mr.Ratnayake nseems to be a very honest politician.I do not even know this gentleman. But for him to come and openly say , it is great. But my feeling is in Sri Lanka if you are honest you have no support. Honest politicians do not stay for long. Keep up the good work Mr. Ratnayake.

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:17 AM

    thank you for admitting

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:19 AM

    Now, which way you want to go? Do you want to become No1 or clean it up altogether?

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:24 AM

    well said Mr.CB. pleases do as you say!

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:26 AM

    very correct.

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:27 AM

    You are right Minister. Please take the necessary action to bring the cricket for sports not a politics.

    Thanks Minister.

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:33 AM

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:43 AM

    CB Ratnayake will be so popular if he talks about things openly as this. He did the best thing by kicking that rogue out. Well begun is half done!

    Careful Mr Minister, straight forward people like you cannot survive long.

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:46 AM

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:46 AM

    What has the previous Minister got to say about corruption in the Cricket Board.

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:49 AM

    Well done Mr Minister!!!. In just two balls you got two wickets. At the current run rate you can be the No1 minister soon.

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:53 AM

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:58 AM

    Monday, 31 May 2010 09:17 AM

    Not only Cricket. most Sri Lankans are corrupted. No body does the honest job in Sri Lanka. No satisfaction, try to earn more and more money some how.
