    Lokuge is a well known murderer and a uneducated rapist as many of the cabinet.

    There is no discipline at all in any where at this time!!Everybody trying to make hay while sun shine!

    If its good for a deputy minister to head the apex administrative body of cricket whats wrong with a a organizer of a political party being appointed as the manager of the team?

    [Does Gamini Lokuge understand cricket ? ]

    Do any Srilankan Ministers understand any SL affairs ?

    He Does failing to learn His identity as well.....!

    Arjuna is a simple MP as he left his Deputy Minister post.

    Hashan is simply a UNP Organizer.

    Minister is still a senior UNP MP...why he try to slap Hashan has he change colours...or simply going against Arjuna...?

    simply he is wearing wrong shoes.

    Sports must be free from politics. Hashan is a good player as well as a manager so not approving his name by the Sport minister will frustrate sport loving fans of SL.

    Tell Lokuge to come for a cricket match to see how popular he is ! He will get hooted like Baddudin Mohhamed got hooted at the CCC in 1978.

    [simply going against Arjuna...?]


    That should be the main reason, Arjuna approved the England 2009 tour with the prior approval from the interim committee members.

    The players protested to the President, made the Minister intevene, now the tour is in a mess.

    And then, now appointing Hashan, without proper approval.

    What is termed as a clash between Lokuge and Arjuna, has made Hashan pay for it.

    Arjuna dislike Indian 20s from the beginning,reasoning damage to Test and National Level cricket.As Players going for Extra money.he has mentioned this at few occasions.

    I have no clear Idea about ICC Representative and decisions they take at meetings.But have seen sudden changes in initiative`s in the past due to various domestic reasons.

    To My knowledge it is SLC decide tours at National Level.

    As players try to earn money both national and international levels,and making politicians to involve it is they them selfs going to loose.

    I hope Arjuna read the rules and laying something for the Players or Politicians to break up.

    now the question is...what is wrong with Hashan..?

    But Hashan is a good choice I suppose.
