Arjuna Ranatunga is still held in high esteem by the cricket loving public of this country including those who don’t subscribe to his political views not so much because he led the Sri Lankan squad that won the ICC World Cup in 1996 under extremely trying conditions but because he is one of the few cricketers who did not prostitute their positions as national players. He refused to appear in commercials and maintained his dignity as well as that of his captaincy. But for him, Sri Lanka would have lost a world class cricketer—Murali, who suffered persecution at the hands of some white supremacists who went all out to ruin the Spin Wizard’s career at an early stage.

When Arjuna speaks of cricket, Sri Lanka listens. Lashing out at the cricket administrators for having permitted national players to skip the Tamil Nadu leg of IPL in view of Jayalalithaa’s ban and play other matches elsewhere, he has called upon them to boycott IPL in toto if they have an iota of dignity and love for the country. One cannot but agree with him. That exactly is what they should do in protest if they could overcome their greed for money. Either they play all IPL matches or they do not play at all.

The reason Jayalalithaa has given for her ill-conceived action against Sri Lankan players is what she calls ‘genocidal violence’ in this country. Skipping Tamil Nadu in keeping with Jayalalithaa’s order is tantamount to subscribing or acquiescing to her condemnation of Sri Lanka, as Arjuna argues. The IPL organisers should have challenged her order legally or otherwise or at least lambasted it in public. But, nothing of the sort has happened. Instead they have obeyed it and decided to go ahead with matches in Tamil Nadu at the expense of Sri Lanka.

Sri Lankan players ought to pull out of the tournament in protest not against India, which stood by this country in 1996 and sent its team here to play when Australia and West Indies refused to come citing security reasons, but against the wayward IPL organisers and Jayalalithaa, who is all out to confer pariah status on Sri Lankan sportspersons. No other country would have stomached such indignities.

Sri Lanka loses nothing by preventing its national players from taking part in the IPL tournament. Nor will its national cricketers be left destitute without IPL money; they, we believe, will be able to make ends meet with their monthly salaries of four million rupees each. (Sri Lanka’s official poverty line at the national level is Rs. 3, 656!)

However, we think, Arjuna’s criticism of Sri Lankan cricketers is like water off a duck’s back. They have sold their souls to IPL organisers and there is nothing they wouldn’t do to have dollars jingling in their pockets. The less said about Sri Lankan cricket administrators the better! They are not there to promote the game but to look after their own interests.

The need has been felt more than ever for someone with a backbone like Captain Cool to manage the luverly game and tell the flannelled fools who have got too big for their boots where to get off. Only a former national skipper with a proven track record, leadership qualities, courage, vision and, above all, love for the game as well as the country is equal to that task. Others will only line their pockets and pander to the whims and fancies of players some of whom have become a law unto themselves, without caring two hoots about the wellbeing of the game. Licking the footwear of the powers that be is their forte!

It is leant that Arjuna has been cleared for taking up the leadership
He is not the kind of leader who was ther when we win the World Cup
Great cricketer but useless politician
If he wants to do anything , he ca pursue SLC management through his brother
May be govt think Arjuna is the best person to control high level cricketers like Mahela
Good bless SRI LANKA CRICKET

true that they can boycott for the 'love' of the country.
But, personal money aside, SLC desperately needs money, and the country needs $$$

One could also argue that if they 'love' the country, they would bring the money for the country

I was wondering what happened to the excess funds the SLC had before and who squandered them ? Shocked
What is the guarantee that same will not be repeated again when more money floods in to SLC coffer ? pale

Arjuna would have earned more stars if he had not stepped into politics.
However, he is on top among all cricketers in our country so far.
