    Yes it is a heavy loss, but we can't be like Indians. This type of behavior is NOT acceptable.

    Game is game. There is winner and loser. When Sri Lanka won Australian, NZ, WI,or SA supporters didn't act like this.Need to accept loses too.

    Blaming the players or attacking them won't help to win matches. Please remember, we do not have a good, full time coach and we expect the players to win against a team like India.

    Let the army play the next match please.
