As soon as I saw the video I knew immediately, and incontrovertibly, that this HAD to be a Sri Lankan elephant.

I, as you know, know my elephants and I also know Sri Lankan traits. This is your classic Sri Lankan elephant. It is partly because we give them a lot of mellons.

Is Sri Lanka’s Niroshan Dickwella Still ‘Thanking God’, Non-Stop, For His Current Form?

by Anura Guruge

Another example. Note hand is higher. Closer to grill.


Haven’t had a chance to see his over-the-top, near-obnoxious constant crossing of himself of late since he hasn’t been at the crease for long. Just 2-balls in the first T20I against South Africa yesterday. I have always said he should be consistent. He should thank God even when he is out — cheaply. He can’t have it both ways. If he is stupid enough to believe that God helps him score runs, then he also has to accept that God must want him gone when he gets out and has to start walking back.

He was even dropped from the side. He must have been beside himself. I can just see him. On his knees praying.

Poor guy. If he wasn’t so obnoxious he could be quite a decent bugger.

Sri Lankan Test Trio, Surprisingly, Admit To Conduct Unbecoming Of Cricket.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Base article, without annotations, from “cricbuzz.com”. Comments are mine.


Lawyers in Sri Lanka must have prevailed BECAUSE these three CLOWNS would have insisted that they did nothing wrong — since at least one of them, Dinesh “I CHEAT” Chandimal, has acted over the last few years as if thinks he is God’s bastard son. Ten years ago, when he was breaking into the scene, he was such a nice and personable kid. Now he is an insufferable dork — who never walks and always questions the umpires. He is BAD for cricket.

Well, Dinesh “I CHEAT” Chandimal, will miss the 3rd Test match against the Windies, starting Saturday, June 23, 2018. That is GREAT news. Following this hearing, with them having confessed to their crime, he will miss at least another couple. That is so, so good for cricket.

There is NOW WAY that these three clowns can refute the charge against them, viz., “conduct contrary to the spirit of the game“. We have it all on video. Them refusing to play and ARGUING, in public, with the umpires and match refree. The coach and the unseemingly obese team manager should be banned from International cricket for LIFE. They were a bloody disgrace. I have not been so annoyed with anything to do with cricket as I was with their moronic tactics — holding up play for 2-hours.

The ICC Officials should have called the match off and given it to the Windies claiming that the stupid Sri Lankans forfeited the match.

So Frigging Mad At Sri Lanka’s Cry-Baby, Unsportsmanlike Test Cricketers: Take The Ball And GO HOME!

by Anura Guruge

That is why the school I attended in London had this very profound saying: “Play the White Man“.

The frigging Sri Lankans, in the 2nd match against the Windies, in St Lucia, were were frigging disgrace. They acted just like brown guys and that irks me because it makes all of us brown guys look bad.

Refusing to PLAY is a heinous crime when it comes to cricket.

I blame the umpires. They should NOT have pandered to these big cry-babies. When they didn’t take the field at the appointed hour the game should have been awarded to the Windies.

They buggers should just take their ball, tampered or otherwise, pack their bloody bags and go back to where they came from.

We do NOT need them.

They are BAD news to cricket.

I hope the ICC ban them for 1,000 years!

Am I mad. Yes. I am frigging mad.

I hate to see MY CRICKET disrespected.

You know this is why there is an expression: “just not cricket”.

The bloody Sri Lankans definitely did NOT play cricket.

Bunch of cry babies.


Another time they acted up like buffoons.

Sri Lanka’s Constantly ‘Thanking God’ Niroshan Dickwella Is Run Out — Did God Forsake Him!

The 1st innings run out. June 8, 2018. From YouTube. youtube.com/watch?v=p-ZtuDHnhsY


Click to ENLARGE. The scorecard from cricinfo.com.


Yes, of course, a lot of cricketers from various countries seek divine help especially when they are batting — and give ‘thanks’ — with eyes pointing up — when they reach a meaningful milestone.

Sri Lanka’s obviously Christian Niroshan Dickwella (from Sri Lanka’s 10% Christian minority) has taken this to ridiculous extremes.

When he is batting he is INCESSANTLY ‘crossing’ himself. Yes, some players do that once when they first come in … Not, Dickwella. He is crossing himself every few minutes. He kind of gets distracting and obnoxious.

But, we cricketers are a superstitious lot and I will indulge Dickwella in his giving thanks to God — so blatantly and constantly.

What puzzles me is how he reconciles his faith and trust in God when he gets out — especially this run out, on Day 3 (June 8, 2018) of the 1st Test against the Windies. It was pretty stupid. He was strolling oblivious that Braithwaite was going to take a shy at the stumps. Now God could have saved him. But, God forsook him! What does he do then? You don’t see him crossing himself when he gets out (or drops a catch).

That is my dilema. How does he rationalize his failures?

He also got suspended by the ICC for two ODI matches. God didn’t bail him out. But, he seems to ignore these let downs. Strange. Very strange.

Sri Lankans Use Stock-Photo ‘White People’ In Their Ads — Very Incongruous, Strange & Sad.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


This popped-up on my Facebook time and made me take notice.

I had seen similar before and had talked to a few Sri Lankans about it then.

This is disturbing!

The belief that using ‘white people’ makes the Ad. better. It is sad. It has been 70-years since Independence, but as one Sri Lankan told me today, colonial-mentality still persists.

There are good looking Sri Lankans as we saw just recently in this post

So, why they feel the need to use stock-photo, white people is laughable. The country is trying desperately to be an isolationist, Sinhala-Buddhist nation — BUT sees nothing strange about Ads. like this.

This is Sri Lanka; a contradiction wrapped up in an enigma.

Handsome Sri Lankans In The U.S.A.

Honestly, YOU did NOT expect to see my picture … right?

‘Handsome’ is NOT a word associated with I, by others, especially, and even by I.

For a start, these stud-muffins are considerably thinner and fit-looking compared to I. Plus they have more hair.

I do NOT, thankfully, know any of them — and they, I.

This was from an unsolicited Sri Lankan e-mail ‘newsletter’ I get, fairly regularly, from some dude in California. Don’t know him. I guess he found my e-mail on the Web.

I just thought you would like to see what truly handsome Sri Lankans look like. You can now see why Indians and Pakistanis so resent Sri Lankans because we have stud-muffins like these.
