Food For Thought for Sri Lanka Cricket

It certainly appears as though the Sri Lanka Cricket Board needs a complete cleanup and res-shuffle..
There definitely is a felt need for good honest and dedicated people to run it not self centered egotistic deadbeats out to reap the benefits available, line their pockets surreptitiously and go on ego and other trips while settling personal, vendettas and carrying grudges shamelessly and playing shuffleboard with the selection process while the good name of the country and past reputation suffers. This is being done while deserving players and bright stars for the future are sidelined at times.
There seems to be light at the end of the tunnel though with the new introductions of administrative and managerial staff and the removal of a few who should have been given their marching orders long ago. Wonder when the likes of Arjuna Ranatunga will throw in their services towards uplifting Sri Lanka Cricket and when the pull of greed related choices towards playing in foreign premiere leagues will cease if ever? Should it not be country first?
Hopefully a new era for Sri Lankan Cricket is on the horizon.
The Bangladesh series is certainly an eye opener where many shortcomings and loopholes were exposed. With all due credit to the Bengalese this was a series which should have been relatively easy pickings for the Lankans but what did they do but almost muff it up?
Thanks to a few stalwarts and few brilliant young blood who came of age Sri Lanka’s face was saved.
Hopefully the vast number of players out due to injury will return also to boost the team and the challenges which lie ahead in the not too distant future !!
These are lessons for Sri Lanka to learn.
