Looks like Sana has already reserved his place in the team for the World Cup with his influence with the Rajapakses - big and small!

At least we know the IMF massive loans given are well spent building stadiums ONLY in Hambantota.

Ground facilities dont seem to be even 20% complete, how on earth will they have world cup matches there in Feb 2011. such a waste of public funds when there are so many grounds in Colombo which could be converted to international standards.

What is better ? Build a stadium in the south or a few more houses in the North ?

Sanath says to Namal " Tell them to select me to play in the World Cup as I am a native here and a MP of yours."

Sana's nool mitiya has reduced..... or is it just on his other hand. Hope he doesn't spoil SL's chances of wining the WC.

It's quite evident that all the "real batsmen" have been sidelined and Namal is doing all the shots.
