    Paul Fabrace is nobody and his leaving has no effect at all . Congrats SL Team.

    This wish is politically motivated. In the political arena, Herath and Dammika do not weight much as Sanga and Mahela.

    Thank you HE for not going to UK to see the proceeding of the second test. You must always always watch our cricket matches from home with all the comforts and dressed in comfortable sarong. Again thanks a million. via DM iPad app

    Well , England is not a great Country as you think. Our president will choose which countries he want to visit. See what happened when our younger team visited your Country.
