    DM admin, don;t dance tune to these Indian events. have a national interest at least. Boycott ....Indians services and good. Use your media to educate Sri Lakan against these dirty Indians . Just look at quality of Indian products we buy in SL? Can't we manufacture them in SL with better quality? Start using media wisely. Just don't lick Ranil or Rajapasse ....to gain few bucks. Put national interest first at least. Im really fed up reading these stupid news items and this could be my last comment.

    Are you being sarcastic:)

    As a Buddhist I'll have to give up practicing Buddha Dhamma discovered by (an Indian ) the Lord Buddha.

    @Kosgoda don't show your ignorance here. Its sad Sri Lankans doesn't understand this. Non of the developed nations allow cheap, law quality Indian products to be imported and even China has different quality standard when importing to developed nations. What I am try to say is, at least try to produce goods in SL than importing these law quality Indian products. Their services also the same. If the SL wants to develop, quality will play a huge role and as a example just look at low quality coal power plant we have now? This is because politians looking for better commission than quality. Anyway I have write enough and up to Sri Lankan people to do whatever you deemed fit. Although we lived in far away we just feel sad how things moving after the war. Although I decided not to comment here, thought my response would be good. Cheers!!

    Nagenahira = "Eastern"
    Nagas = "Snake" ('Cobra' to be precise)

    So its like saying "Eastern Cobras".

    Jagath Leanage Sunday, 12 August 2012 09:26 AM

    ravi Sunday, 12 August 2012 10:58 AM

    Yes it is may be a copy of Indian style, but still it is worth, why you also copied from English your dresses. if some thing good and benefit from others, please copy it, nothing wrong on it.

    I am wonder who has given these names for teams, could not find better names than this. See how IPL team names. Idiots in this organization committee.

    Ruwan W. Saturday, 11 August 2012 05:53 PM

    Kautilya Sunday, 12 August 2012 02:38 AM

    Who cares.

    Jena Sunday, 12 August 2012 02:42 AM

    Guys, I am a Sri Lankan.. but a Tamil from Batticalo.. I could not get what actually 'Nagenahira Nagas' means ? Can anyone tell me the meaning of it ?

    PremasiriS Sunday, 12 August 2012 04:34 AM

    4 top all-rounders haven't been included in this tournament though one may find dozen of very average local players in these teams who are either very close relatives or friends of officials and senior players. e.g. Umesh Karunarathna the Best Schoolboy Cricketer of the Year 2008 with a 1st Cl Bat Ave 35.91 & Bow.Ave. 18.01. Other notable omissions are Geeth Kumara, Geeth Alwis and Chathuranga de Silva with 1st Cl Bat Ave & 1st Cl Bow Ave : 32.13& 26.73; 36.05 &26.47 & 34.28 & 24.33 respectively. A very many brilliant schoolboy Cricketers of recent times also were ignored in order to make way for some aging local Cricketers in their late 30s & early 40s which serves no purpose.

    Why you want to watch useless talk-shows of bogus heroes? that can't earn a cent outside this Country.

    prasanna Sunday, 12 August 2012 05:15 AM

    Even I cannot understand the meaning. funny names..no meaning at all....
