Make Mahela Jayawardane the Head Coach of Sri Lanka Cricket Team & Bring Kumar Sangakkara as the Manager.. Murali can be the Spin Bowlers coach.. Also i think Arjuna Ranathunge & Aravinda De Silva can handle SLC better than current morons do.. (Those 2 are just optional. :D)Then Sri Lanka Cricket will be unstoppable as Marven & Vaas are already in the coaching staff and Sanath Jayasuriya as the Chief Selector..

SACHIN - THE GREATEST OF ALL My greatest nightmare is finally here! The reality of life without Sachin Tendulkar is here upon me! The day when a man playing his monumental 200th test, a feat others can only dream of and that feat too becomes insignificant, no one is talking about this historical achievement that can happen only once because that happens to be his last test of his illustrious carrier! That is Sachin Tendulkar !!! One could ask why Sachin Tendulkar ? There are some of the best cricketers who have played in this era, the likes of Rahul Dravid, Shane Warne, Jaques Kallis, Wasim Akram, Brian Lara, Muralitharan, Ricky Ponting, Mahela Jayawardene and Aravinda De Silva! Because most of them haven't played to the expectation of a billion people! Most of them played in a fantastic team that was not the case with Sachin for a decade! My earliest memory of Sachin was when he scored that brilliant 137 against Srilanka in 96 worldcup! One of the most memorable innings will be of course that double agai ...

Being brilliant is no great feat if you respect nothing, One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say, this is what Lasith Malinga has really forgotten himself. We knew holly great giant cricketers like Brain Lara, Arjuna Ranatunga, Sunil Gavaskar, Aravinda De Silva, Garfield Sobers, Vivian Richards and etc who are filled with full of great personality and attitudes. We still love them because of their great gentleness. What so ever this new cricket generation has totally lost some good gentleman values that sportsmanship should have in any time of their life..!!

Hi Chef Aravinda De Silva, Greetings from We had a look at your recipes .it is...
I would like to share with our all fans the meanings of Kent & The reasons behind why we are called our club Kent Cricket Club below. Kent is a county in South East England, and one of the Home Counties. It borders East Sussex, Surrey and Greater London and has a defined boundary with Essex in the middle of the Thames Estuary. I think during mid of 90s Kent County Cricket Club become very popular in cricketing world due to some of our Asian all time great cricketers like Wasim Akram, Aravinda De Silva played. That’s why we named Kent Cricket Club.

Virat Kohli Turns 24 Today. About his achievements : He averages over 50 runs in ODIs, has 13 ODI centuries (12 of which have come in victories), averages over 65 in ODI wins and is only 23-years-old. Virat Kohli has completed fo ur full years in international cricket. Yet, he already has achievements to boast about that some ODI greats haven’t even attained yet. Kohli has more ODI centuries as Viv Richards, Gordon Greenidge, and Aravinda De Silva managed in their entire careers. In addition to this, he has scored more ODI centuries than Gautam Gambhir, Matthew Hayden, Inzamamul Haq, Kevin Pietersen, Javed Miandad and Dean Jones to name a few. One can’t even say that he has been bashing the minnows on batting-friendly pitches as he has scored hundreds in one day matches against Australia, England, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and New Zealand both at home and away. What is remarkable about these achievements is the fact that he is still at the initial stage of his ODI career, having established himself as a sur ...
