    Kumar gave a clear reason to why he is resigning. but with selectors resignation with out any reason, it is clear that there had been some political influence.

    It seems everybody is resigning. So, I've decided to resign from being a Sri Lankan cricket supporter! Anyway, I feel that a little more self-belief could've won us the World cup.
