First, a bit of Irony.
About a month ago the BCCI threatened to cut off all Bi Lateral ties with Sri Lanka.
After Mumbai, India are talking about strengthening the Asian block again.
Its a bit sad that so much devastation was needed for people to open their eyes when people like scorpicity from cricfizz and my self could see the potential dangers of this long before.
Arjuna, never a man to miss an opportunity, is attempting to weasel his way into the BCCIs ” People We Likey” column by offering to send a full strength Sri Lankan team to India for a charity match.
This list includes high rollers like, Reg Dickson and most of the people at the ECB.
Although it still remains to be seen how Arjuna can ‘Weasel’ his way into anything other than to queue-jump a buffet line.
Actually, this is quite a nice thing to do from Arjuna.
On the one hand, his image goes up a few notches.
On the other, since the England tour has now been canceled and all his efforts have gone to waste, there is no better time to buddy up with the BCCI again.
Cuz we can be sure that the ECB wont be extending a helping hand anytime soon.
Showing solidarity at a time like this is in the best interest of the SLC and Arjuna.
