    Yes undeed we have lost the Cricket Matches on both occaisions you visited the grounds. Funnily you have not realised still, we are losing the country while you are continuing to bat still, with hora not outs although the Public has made genuine appeals and the Judiciary as the Umpires even getting thrashed.

    MR using SF (bat brand name) to cover his wickets. Even at this point it is SF that helps him for his victory.

      (this was written just prior to the recently concluded T20 World Cup)

      How Sri Lanka Can Win the 2012 T20 World Cup

      1. Appoint Mahinda Rajapaksa match referee of all the WC T20 matches played by Sri Lanka.

      2. Appoint Gotabaya and Basil as on field umpires and Namal as the 3rd umpire in all the WC T20 matches played by Sri Lanka.

      3. Appoint Chamal Rajapaksa as manager of the Sri Lanka cricket team.

      4. Only allow Sri Lankan fans to enter the stadiums where the SL cricket team plays it’s matches.

      5. Declare Mervin Silva, Duminda Silva and Wimal Weerawansa official cheerleaders of the SL cricket team and let them roam around the match venues intimidating fans and supporters of the opposing teams.

      6. Bring in a 19th Amendment to the constitution making it compulsory for all Sri Lankans irrespective of their race or religion to fly the Sinhala flag from their homes and scream ‘JAYA WAY WAA! ONE COUNTRY! ONE PEOPLE! ONE RULING FAMILY’ every time a 4 or a 6 is scored by the SL team.

      7. Declare the hotels accommodating opposition teams as “NO FIRE ZONES” and then promptly bombard them with multi-barrel rockets and cluster bombs.

      8. Change the cricket laws so that Lasith Malinga can bowl all 20 over’s allotted to the SL team in each game.

      9. During crunch matches, use “White Vans” to abduct key players of opposition teams (especially Virat Kohli of India) and promptly blame the abductions on an “International Conspiracy” to tarnish the image of the government and the country.

      10. Wrap cricket balls with “Holy Thread” (pirith nool) utter some mumbo jumbo over the balls and place them in the stadiums where the SL team plays its games in order to bring them good luck.

      11. If all of the above fails, contact the thief who was responsible for the museum robbery, and instruct him to steal the T20 World Cup and have it delivered to Hotel de Temple Palace.

        I would change number 8, it would be advantageous to the opposing team, they’d clobber the joker all over the field. May I suggest you change it to Mendis?

    Good luck or bad. Everyone heard the crowd roar, when Mahinda’s face appeared on the Jumbo-tron. That was spontaneous. With all his faults he remains a popular president. Something all the haters will have to grin and bear.

    This hadu rilawa wearing a shawl and wielding a SF bat who was allergic to SF so much that he obliterated every land mark and memory related to Sarath Fonseka to revenge his defeat to SF at presidential election is a symbol of evil, destruction, bad omen and holocaust! I wonder what the future holds for this moronic fucker and his retinue of assholes who are following in his footsteps! Surely it must be worse than that of Gaddafi! Look how this shameless nincompoop robs silly propaganda from a cricket bat bearing the signature marks of SF forgetting all the moronic things he did in the past against SF. Go to hell stupid fucker. You destroyed this country and smeared filth and urinated on the fame of this country.
