    The world has seen several cricketing legends since the game was invented. Can someone name at least one of them as a coaching legend? However, that does not mean it should never ever be the case. But the chances are that it will be the case rather than not. In short, SL should mend in its entirety. Meaning every aspect such as politics, administration, education, sports, security

    Nothing can save Sri Lanka cricket from it's current predicament as long as money does all the talking. Even politicians who never held a bat have got so addicted to the game these days because of million dollars of money that is flowing from heaven into the coffers of the Sri Lanka cricket Board.

    For a legend or anyone else to revive SL cricket they need to be dedicated and ihs success won't be a result of the money you are going to pay him Once appointed there should be no interference from outside. In short he should be given the independence and power to do his job and then held accountable if he does not deliver

    No legend can save cricket with this corrupted board. They should go then cricket will thrive as before.

    I live in a country where there is no interferennce in sports whatsoever and they are currently the World Test Cricket Champions, T20 World Cup Champions and the ODI Cricket World Cup Champions. All the ICC cricket trophies on offer. I don't even know the name of the Minister of Sports in charge of cricket because there are more important issues than cricket They say sports and politics don't mix.

    If a legend can save Sri Lanka Cricket think again. Australia's current cricket coach and former cricket coach of Victoria Andrew McDonald is no legend and has played just four test matches for Australia before he was asked to replace legend Justin Langer the former coach as the current cricket coach of the champion Australian cricket team. You don't need a legend to save Sri Lanka cricket but just cricketing talent is what is needed which i think is lacking in the current players.

    SLC is corrupt to the core.
