    Anyone watching IPL? Interesting statistic, Sangakkara was dismissed cheaply twice so far, both times by Sri Lankan discards Maharoof and Vaas.

    Well Vass retired. Maharoof case is discrimination. Dilshan changed his name to fit to the chauvinism otherwise he could haver been axed out too irrespective of his talents.

    Yep.

    Changed his first names from the Malay Tuan Mohammed to the Sinhalese Tillekeratne Mudaliyansage.

    Here is an interesting article about Cricket and Sri Lankan Muslims .

    Magha Thanks!,

    I have alraedy read that, but I don`t believe everything in it. I know Tuwan Mohamed Dilshan became Tilakaratna Mudiyanselage Dilshan at the age of 16 or 17.That was early 1990s. He not only changed the name, I believe. I have seen him playing as Tuan Mohammed - he was damn good even at that time. Even as Tilakaratne Dilshan he had a hard time getting in until he shut the selectors` mouths with his extraordinary performence.

    We know Sri Lanka Cricket differently. I don`t think chavinism has much to do with Sri Lanka Cricket. Money and power has. And, the people who are in, want friends and friends of friends only, unless someone proves himself extraordinary and un droppable.

    We know what happened to people like that great Nalandian spinner, the Tamil pacemen from Kurunegala, the wicket keeper who scored a 96 and virtully won the test on his debut.... the list is endless.

    Magha,

    [Maharoof case is discrimination. Dilshan changed his name to fit to the chauvinism otherwise he could haver been axed out too irrespective of his talents.]

    So when will Murali and Mathews change their names to fit the Sinhala Buddhist chauvinism(C)? Will Russel Arnold also change his name post-retirement?

    Dilshan took leaf out of MR. Percy Mahendra Rajapksa became Percy Mahinda Rajapksa.Now Dilshan Tilkaratna before Tuan Mohamad Dilshan.

    Is there a sickness call chauvinismmania? Is it something like nymphomania or kuppamenia?
