    First it was MOU, recently it became NFM(No-faith Motion) and now the latest is 'resign,' everybody wants somebody or other to resign. Funny how this political jargon start and does the rounds!

    Changing the premier club structure and including weak teams was one problem, interfering with team selections another, giving senior player too much of opportunity is a third. Yes Chairman should resign

    I wouldn't have been surprised if he still would have been the minister of ports the SLC would had come under the ministry of ports rather than Sports. After all just a letter ain't ?SLC head should be a non politician, non businessman and purely a cricketer having the passion for the game and country.

    To put it literally, with a minister who does not know which end of the bat to hold, all, repeat all the office bearers need to be kicked out, including Sanna.

    Nishantha is a good example for the entire country to know how good the Ranatunga's are!

    He will resign only after we lose the series against Afghanistan! We have no more teams to lose!

    Mr. Ranatunga conveniently forgotten that during his captaincy in 1993, SL lost badly to India with the same score margin of 3-0 in a Test series.
