    These Cricket Mudhalalies (Players) will prefer even Sri Lanka be a another State of India as long as they can play IPL.

    1.Money 2. Self 3.Family 4. Country these are the characteristics of our Sri Lankan cricketers.SLC cricket does not have any say here and the decision is over ruled.So they should take responsibility of their own safety not country not the board or the people.

    waduge Monday, 01 April 2013 10:26 AM

    They are playing for them not for the country

    R Monday, 01 April 2013 10:32 AM

    Dear All, I do not agree you ppl complaining about SANGA and MAHELA. We should be proud that both of them are captaining 2 sides, they have been chosen over the Indians because they have what it takes to deliver. Therefore being captain of a team they have their responsibilities towards their team as well. However i would say its the responsibility of the high commissioner in India, the sports minister and all those heat the seats at SLC to have had the assurance from the Indian government for the safety of our players.

    Prasanna Monday, 01 April 2013 12:11 PM

    It's OK to participate. We all need money. BUT I hate Malinaga as he is playing good only in IPL....

    Mahehs Monday, 01 April 2013 12:14 PM

    SAM_SPARROW Monday, 01 April 2013 10:11 AM

    Boneless Cricketers. They are ready to anything for money. What a shame.

    Sarana Simion Monday, 01 April 2013 10:12 AM

    Hey Guys, Just because Jayalalitha is mixing sports with politics we should not do the same. We should show her that we are more educated by participating in the IPL. We should welcome all tourists from Chennai with our usual Sri Lanka smile and be even more kind to them. If we Sri lankans are to act the same way then there is no difference between them and us. This should make then realise who we realy are. These cricketers can only earn money for small period. So let them do so, as once they leave cricket most of them are not educated to take a propper job and earn a living.

    firefox Monday, 01 April 2013 10:14 AM

    There is nothing wrong in our players playing for IPL. They have not been rejected by IPL or India, just in Tamil Nadu.

    saira Monday, 01 April 2013 10:16 AM

    nothing wrong with that, Best of luck! just make sure not to travel around Tamil Nadu!
