    Don't Go. You will be killed instantly. All the bowlers will study your pattern. You can make more money slowly.

    Yes he has been bought. But I afraid that he is going to be a one of bench warmers for MI.Mehela is there as a coach, but he is helpless...

    Mathews and Guneratne both great for both of you. And both will play for SL missing some IPL matches. That is the true patriotism.

    Yes India will give your money and girls. you spoil your talent and slow down in talent,. my advice stay away from India and their dirty money game,. remember they will show you money and later buy you in world cup :) like they did in last world cup.. to other players.

    Mathews consistent over long period, experienced and captainingg skills. Asels only just two innings promising but only one month of exposure. Nig difference - Rolls Royce and Toyota - both good but , but, but ?..
