    Don’t worry you will get bail soon since you come under privileged category and our law applies to you differently.

    Young cocky cricketers must be cut down to size. They may be rich but must be taught to be to be responsible. You can have money but need to be simple. Y is he being detained at the Police station?? He should have been produced before the magistrate and should have been remanded. Y double standards? Its a fatal accident. he must be enjoying perks at the Police station like the underworld gangsters in prison Kusal Mendis is one cricketer who has forgotten his origins.

    The cricketers are paid excessively and become rich overnight. So they lose control of themselves.

    Very said. I can’t understand why he was driving if he doesn’t know how to drive a Vechical in the road.

    He cannot drive a vehicle properly, how can we expect him to play cover drives.
