    Capitan Kukool Friday, 08 June 2012 08:47 AM

    No, no, Sanga no good. Because he no color his hair.

    Vijitha Friday, 08 June 2012 09:44 AM

    Congratulations Malinga, You are a great Sri Lankan icon in Cricket. Those people who complain about Maling making money, put yourself in his position and think what would you do? If Malinga wakes up every morning with severe pain won't you think I don't know how long I could continue playing Cricket and that is all I know and try to make as much as money before you retire. That is human nature. Cheers to Malinga. You are a legend.
