    Cricket, the only game which has brought so much glory to the Nation at international level is probably the only thing that this Government could not damage. However, it would now appear that they have been successful in destroying that too. What a tragedy?

    There has to be a limit for Sri Lanka cricketers' greed.

    Way to go Sanga and the Gang, why should all these political hacks get all the money for your hard work and tallent? Its time to kick politics out of cricket.

    maker Sunday, 03 March 2013 07:00 AM

    Time to wake-up and support Sanga what ever possible ways....

    Kasun Sunday, 03 March 2013 07:07 AM

    Players play Cricket and Cricket board earns from them...But, SLC doesn't want to pay them correctly.Pathetic...RIP Sri Lankan Cricket....

    lk Sunday, 03 March 2013 07:08 AM

    Like what?

    Siva Sunday, 03 March 2013 07:11 AM

    Sure MR will interven all problem will be solved like in all other cases.

    Sanga and Mahela are needed.


    All revenage by Sanath.. Lost all respects for Sanath....

    Upul Sunday, 03 March 2013 07:14 AM

    Sanga, be careful, you can be arrested and prosecuted...

    tina Sunday, 03 March 2013 02:17 PM

    please dont make stupid comments....why would they go behind IPL if we give them what they deserve..!!! with such a corrupted committee and system obviously they will consider other sources to make money because they know what they are worth...!!

    ANTON Sunday, 03 March 2013 07:19 AM

    Yeah, their henchmen are to be given priorities.

    country's law, politics , democracy , religious tolerance, economy all ruined. now cricket join the club. miracle of asia.

    Ranjith Silva Sunday, 03 March 2013 07:21 AM

    A player wanted to dictate terms are not entertained. Let talented young guys take the lead. Contarct is a basic document and one can not take on his own. A law student should know better.

    dave Sunday, 03 March 2013 07:23 AM

    Very good move.
    They are behind money.
    They are already become mulit billionares.
    Not playing for the Country. Only for Money.
    Go to IPL and earn some money.

    SLC cut down player fees but the funny part is SLC is full of unnessary staff and corruption.
    way to go

    Colin Sunday, 03 March 2013 07:52 AM

    Its goes to show the lack of negotiating skills on part of SLC.
    I see a lot of PASS here. "The Booise have note played well' this time.

    jagath Sunday, 03 March 2013 07:58 AM

    Very Good Move. We should not allow these fellows to dictate terms.

    We cant tolerate this anymore. They touched Lasantha, Sf, pradp ekneligoe, chief justice, public. Now Sanga !

    Elakiri Sunday, 03 March 2013 12:00 AM

    SLC recruited secretaries for managers paying big amounts. They brought Haroon Mortar paying Rs 100,000/- a day to show their own fault. Now they are trying to cover up all by putting the blame on the players. What a shame..!!! via DM Android App

    waz Sunday, 03 March 2013 03:30 PM

    REALLY! We have idiots like this ones! Sanga must be in the team!

    SLCricketFan Sunday, 03 March 2013 03:28 PM

    End of the day, it boils down to Money and Money but nothing else! It's all about money and IPL.

    Nuke Sunday, 03 March 2013 08:22 AM

    SLC or MoS do not want smart guys in the team, same as Ms.Chandrika Kumartunga's speech recently in Kandy.

    Nuke

    SL_EXPATS Sunday, 03 March 2013 08:27 AM

    We had only cricket to watch peacefully in the country... now that also messed up... when X-mas comes x-mas tree, when thai/deepavalee there is issues, when comes to moors Halal & other issues, when It comes to vesak/poya,etc No issues?, even the tape recorder louds under each BO gaha Nobody complains.. we believe the country's real change is very near..

    Nina Kamal Sunday, 03 March 2013 03:30 PM

    Deiyyo Sakki..., may be we can now promote parliamentarians to display their talents.., Mervyn, Keheliya, Sumedha and Mathiripala......

    lk Sunday, 03 March 2013 08:40 AM

    Stop blaming Sanath... He will resolve this matter today in the evening...

    kandykolla Sunday, 03 March 2013 08:37 AM

    Knowing he`s out of form still wants to play in the team, wants to play IPL, wants to be a member of parliament, like to be a dancing star in india and participated, played charity match in canada and complained he wasn`t paid accordingly, got married for the 3rd time (personal) and at last selector of the Lankan team and ruining the cricket.

    Let SL cabinet play in their respective fields! Please let our class cricketers play in their one!

    hubert Sunday, 03 March 2013 09:05 AM

    Please cricket loves, dont worry, we have enough players in SL cabinet, M. Silva (capt), etc.....

    moratu crick Sunday, 03 March 2013 09:15 AM

    Another Tele Drema Not Sana, the SLC president wants to be step in now & negotiate. Then hero will win the SLC election at the end of March

    niz Sunday, 03 March 2013 04:07 PM

    You are a fool..oh wait..of course you are.

    janaka Sunday, 03 March 2013 04:03 PM

    Every where we go the politics is playing dirty game. The Sport minister is another fool. He do not know any thing about cricket he dances to his advises music.

    joytheo Sunday, 03 March 2013 09:46 AM

    u will not say this if u r one of the players in SLC team. will u work for ur company (if you are) if they havent paid ur salary on time? some of you are real selfish idiots.

    aj Sunday, 03 March 2013 10:00 AM

    Why change contracts without proper consultaion .......i mean was SLC expecting players to sign the contracts blindly..........really poor managmnet and Thinking by SLC .........no real vision for the sport as whole ...no wonder the standards are going down........

    Marsh Sunday, 03 March 2013 09:58 AM

    SLC & Minister,, you all are drunk.. plz go home without ruining this beautiful game..!!!!!!!!!

    Cricket fan Sunday, 03 March 2013 10:07 AM

    This is what is wrong with our country... You guys are not educated enough why on earth wud you blame sanath for sanga being dropped? SLC basic requirements contracted players can only be selected so how can sanath select a player who is not contracted?
    Don't be so naif people why are our cricketers being so greedy its simple if a company is running into financial trouble the employees take pay cuts and bla bla cut..
    Why can't our cricketers who have earned millions through cricket make some sacrifice too?
    Typical Sri Lankan behavior running behind without thinking

    Cricket fan Sunday, 03 March 2013 10:11 AM

    Funny thing if they don't sign the contracts they can kiss good bye IPL no objection certificates will not be issued... Sanga and mahela not think about this jayasuriya will remind them of it today lol then they will sign it like school. Girls lol
    Employees should be employees

    Marsh Sunday, 03 March 2013 10:12 AM

    the problem with the sport minister is he doesnt understand the game of cricket... thought he wanted to make things right, he just spoiling up every thing... remember the way he was trying to take a action against sanga after that speech he gave at Lords england.... sanga is too intelligent for u minister..!!

    Mara kaiya Sunday, 03 March 2013 10:12 AM

    As far as Sanath is concerned , this is payn back time.

    Bob Seygal Sunday, 03 March 2013 10:19 AM

    This man thinks it is a "one man show" and regard him as the kingpin. All of them beg to be included in the national team at the begining of their career and a few years later they have forgotten the sportsmanship and the nation who nurtured them to be great players. No wonder money is considered to the reason for EVIL behaviour.

    Coconut Donkey Sunday, 03 March 2013 04:41 AM

    We the spectators have also dropped Sri Lanka Cricket for it's staggering incompetence.. shame!!!

    lasantha Sunday, 03 March 2013 11:22 AM

    Cricket has also becomes a victim of Politicians. What a shame.

    Fazli Sunday, 03 March 2013 04:38 AM

    so the tussle begins has finally begun . Sanath has formally announed his arrival.

    Simiyon Sunday, 03 March 2013 11:24 AM

    Yes but have you seen the contents of the contract? Before making foolish comments like this you should understand that the contents/ clauses in the contract should be acceptable to both parties to sign and agree upon.

    Silva Sunday, 03 March 2013 04:40 AM

    Put Mervin Silva?????

    Politics is gonna ruin the game and fame of cricket... Sadly it has to start with Sanga, but I know he lives by principles and wont give in to the bullying of the SLC "OFFICIALS"..
