    Please win the remaining T20 as well and give a perfect thrashing to SL

    SL Sunday, 03 September 2017 11:42 PM

    Thank you Thilanga Sumathipala.

    Rest in Peace SL Cricket! Money and politics killed it. I do not see anybody who could resurrect SL Cricket for the foreseeable future. Hope somebody would come and prove me wrong.

    Mandy Monday, 04 September 2017 09:38 AM

    Not only SLC even whole SL is virtually finished by both UNP and SLFP. Only growth is in the corruption index.

    P.T. Dunuwilla Monday, 04 September 2017 09:49 AM

    Why not if Arjuna becomes the Sports Minister and Sanga coaches our team its possible.

    R.M.K. Kulatunge Monday, 04 September 2017 09:50 AM

    Why not - if Sumathipala steps down, our Cricket will improve.

    GH Monday, 04 September 2017 12:52 AM

    After selling out SL to INDIA, this event considered as COUNTY MATCH!

    At least now, after hitting rock bottom, can real change be expected to put things right?

    Lion Viswanathan Monday, 04 September 2017 09:53 AM

    Mr. Sumathipala - just leave your seat for a sportsman, your are a businessman.

    nick Monday, 04 September 2017 05:15 AM

    this was planned well before the series the only Srilankans winner in this is Mr Gambler via DM Android App

    Snowy Monday, 04 September 2017 06:50 AM

    Yes, it was very good paint.

    Jagath Leanage Monday, 04 September 2017 07:23 AM

    Sri Lanka will be kicked out of international cricket very soon.

    Lal Perera Monday, 04 September 2017 09:46 AM

    Already is it proved, Sumathipala is responsible for this.

    Leo Monday, 04 September 2017 08:36 AM

    Sri Lanka is moving forward in every aspect under yahapalane.

    Sunil Monday, 04 September 2017 11:05 AM

    Of course. When was the last time we achieved complete white-washesd in a test series and odi?

    Lara Monday, 04 September 2017 08:38 AM

    I remember mister bean claiming that Sri Lankan cricket is winning now after stopping political interference. Now what?

    Sunil Gamage Monday, 04 September 2017 09:35 AM

    At least now, Sumathipala and sports minister should step down.

    Dennis Reeves Monday, 04 September 2017 09:36 AM

    Indian's really played professional cricket and SriLanka played like school boys, that is the difference.

    Aladeniya Kirimathaya Monday, 04 September 2017 09:38 AM

    If , the head of SL Cricket board resigns, then our boys will freely play and win games, other-wise, we will go to the bottom.

    Desmond Jeromme Monday, 04 September 2017 09:41 AM

    Sanga or Mahela should coach SL team, if not a disaster for our Cricket.

    Chanaka Nanayakara Monday, 04 September 2017 09:45 AM

    In a way, though the robber Mahinananda was the sports minister, the team was on the top, but now with the present sports minister who does not know any sports we are down to bottom, very sad.

    Manuel Benjamin Monday, 04 September 2017 09:55 AM

    I am a cricket lover expected Srilanka will at least win the 5th ODI, but badly disappointed, if Mathews would have captained for sure, our boys would have done well.

    Samson Samaranayake Monday, 04 September 2017 09:57 AM

    SL Cricket will never come up again its like MR's regime, never...never... never... come up.

    Dinosaur Monday, 04 September 2017 10:18 AM

    This is part of the international conspiracy against our motherland by Tamil Diaspora
