    Don't strip his captaincy. Today's leaders are like that.They violate laws and constitutions.

    A very bad example set. Doesn't deserve to be the leader of the national cricket team. Most of the current generation of cricketers are swollen headed.

    Andrew Silva Monday, 01 April 2019 10:09 AM

    It could be a poor judgement by the captain no self control drink and drive his brain was not able to fathum the trauma and even fertelaties he could cause.

    Imran Monday, 01 April 2019 11:12 AM

    Despite the drunk and drive, even we can't pick the three-wheeler's side, since we all hate them in general, because of their discipline and attitude..
