India lose to Sri Lanka in 96 world cup. However the match never finished. India was 120/8 chasing Sri Lanka’s 251 at 34 overs. 16 overs were left and 2 wickets were in hand, but the umpires declared Sri Lanka the winner. Why? I was a small kid back then and barely remember the details. All I can remember is that there was news umpire declared SL the winner without the match finishing. It was not D/L and there was no rain either.

I just got an e-mail from my friend with an image from a Australian news paper which says that Ajantha Mendis going to play for Australian cricket team. It is also said that Ajantha Mendis has an Australian girl friend. According to the report Ajantha Mendis will first play to Australian Victoria cricket team. Ajantha Mendis will be playing as their international player for 12 months and then later on he will be recruited to national side. This is an attempt due to the lack of quality spinners in the Australian cricket team these days. I wonder whether this news is true. Sri Lankans living in Australia must be knowing this better.

Is it tru that Namal Rajapaksha is going to be Sri Lanka cricket board chairmen?

Sri lanka cricket is undergoing many changes after the world cup. First Sri lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara resigned from the captaincy and then Mahela Jayawardana resigned. After that Sri Lanka cricket selection committee handed over their resignation. They all say that they are resigning to pave the path for new comers who can develop their own Sri Lanka cricket team for the next cricket world cup. Sri lanka cricket coach Trevor Baylis also ended his term with Sri Lanka cricket and same with the team Physio. Assistant coach Stewart Board has been appointed as Sri Lanka Cricket Interim Coach. So Sri Laka cricket will be appointing a Cricket coach and a selection committee soon. Most of the time it is Minister of Sport who decide the selection committee members. Meanwhile i heard a rumor that Sri lanka cricket board has also going to be changed. According to the news report there are some arrangements to change the officers of Sri Lanka cricket who were frequently reported for corruptions and malpractices in preparation for the Cricket world cup 2011. So according to news Higher politician are interested in the sport and they are going to do bring some rules to Cricket act so that the next Sri Lanka cricket president can stay in the office until next world cup. Mr. Mathiwanan who is a well experienced Sri Lanka cricket officer and a former secretary of the Same is going to be appoint as Secretary again and it is rumored that someone called Sam from England is going to be appointed as Sri Lanka cricket chairmen until Namal Rajapaksha takes the office. So all these were what I read today in papers. But I am sure there can be lank help users who have very reliable information regarding these.

Impact of dull Sri Lankan wickets on ODI ranking ?

Look at these pitches. Its so hard to make runs here. Plus toss is such a huge advantage. Why don’t these people leave more grass on the pitch and make them hard,so that there is more bounce and swing? Many wkts like mohali hav pace and bounce. But These pitches in sri lanka are so so dry. Like a 4th day pitch. It makes the game so slow and dull.

Warning. DHI hair transplants are not success. I have had it and only few hair grew. Cost Rs 350,000. Monet wasted. Some few hair grew but after some time all the hair fell out. When I called to complain they hang up and avoid. Even Suraj who done there has now suffered more hair fall. Check his photos on th internet. Dont waste money. Better be bald.

Dr Upendra De Silva at the skin clinic in Bambalapitiya now claims to do hair transplants. This is not successful for sure. Just look even he wears a wig. Why does Upendra wear a wig if he can do good hair transplants. lol. He does not trust his clinics work. Next time if you go his clinic check his wig on head. It is a good wig. He is bald as a cricket ball otherwise. lol.

In my view the best hair transplants in Sri Lanka is in Parakum mawatha, Batharamulla. A few of my friends did it there and good results too. Cost is affordable and team do good reliable work. Got my baldness treated for Rs 50,000 and my hair looks nice now.

Everyone knows people in Sri Lanka are good at throwing mud but poor at praising good work. SO if you want to grow hair visit all the clinics and find the one that best suits you. Good luck.
