    Dear Mr President

    He may not have been good to be included in the team?

    Please let those who know the game manage it

    You are good what you are doing similarly let the others do what they are good at

    Well done Mr President !

    `Neva gulunoth band Choon`

    How can you let serious matters interrupt fun & game? You should have a strong cricket team to play against Eelam Cricket Team. I can see your preparation.

    Hi Vegabound,

    It is nice to see some humour here. Both your paragraphs are full of humour. You appear to be a `Neva gilunath banchun` in true Sri lankan fashion.

    Dear President

    Whole world knows :

    a)Ranil W is the better candidate but the masses deceived by JVP/JHU selected yourself

    b)Sanath J is the best SL cricketer but had to be left out at this occasion

    Sanath may be out of form and he`s proved it in recent matches, he hasn`t been a scoring machine as he used to be. He will have to leave the team one day anyway. It is always good to introduce new blood to the team time to time. Because of the people like Arjuna and Aravinda, some very would be bright stars dissappeared without shinning at all. If a player is dropped, it shouldn`t be make headlines, there are others to play. Sanath had his fair share for so long anyway. However, if there are concerns,as he has been a magnifiecient player, what is wrong if the minister decides to investigate it? President is a keen cricket fan, and seem to have advised the minister as there had been requests to do so. I don`t think the president spent hours in doing so. He suerly shouldn`t have delayed other duties to advice the minister.

    After all, it is called a cricket crazy country and president JRJ declared a holiday after a test win. If he was in charge, I am sure he would have declared a two-day holiday the least after the world cup triumph in 1996. May be MR is also in his fold.
