Ask Mahela anything

Mahela Jayawardene has his own website

Nothing cool like the infamous Iain O’Brien blog or anything.

Its got Captain Marvelous in some cool poses. I especially like the one on the home page.

The ‘The truth is out there’ or as I call it ‘Doing long division sums at slip’ is a look Mahela wears well.

But the small one for his ‘tour diaries’ section just makes you feel dirty.

My favorite section though is the Contact Mahela thingy.

So far I have asked Mahela a few questions on a wide range of topics that matter to me.

“Dearest Mahela,

You know Andre Nel from South Africa? I thought the coolest thing about him is his split personality- Gunther, the German who dwells in the mountains.

Which led me to wonder if you, Mahela, had a split personality too. If you do, what is or its name, what does it/he/she do?

Eagerly awaiting your reply.


No reply as yet. Mahela was busy scoring runs in Zimbabwe I reckon. He is an important man after all.

“Dearest Mahela,

How tough was Zimbabwe! Quick question, were Zimbabwe that good or where you dreaming of unicorns and traveling to fantastical lands in your mind when you were batting.

I praised you on my blog for winning us that 3rd game. But you let me down so bad.

It hurts Mahela, it hurts bad.


I wrote that today. I am sure he will reply. I will keep you lads posted.

Then I wanted to get intimate with Mahela, So I dropped him a personal question.

“Dearest mahela,
in a contest for the hariest body part of a cricketer what would win.

Rickys forearms or
your eye brows?

    Dearest Damith,
    Sorry for taking so long. I have been busy as you’ve predicted.
    Christina was bitching about not taking her to Zimbabwe so I had to take her shopping all over Colombo to make things up. Kumar showing up with Yehali didn’t help either.
    So regarding your first qeustion, no I don’t have a split personality but I wish if I could be like Kumar, you know. He’s so fucking good with the bat and got some good ideas so I have to keep looking over my shoulder, the bugger might take my captaincy. I like Yehali too. She can cook biriyani way better than Christina can too. But I hope you keep this between us.
    Second question, they were really good. I think they lured us into a false sense of security and we nearly fell into the trap. It’s just that Splendid was there to save us. These days I can relax a bit cos I know he’ll be there to save my ass. I’m also quite happy my boy Muba got some runs. You see, I won’t have to justify him for another while now. Kiri pani that his dad brings are really tasty.
    Third, I think Ricky wins cos his are natural. I rather have been doing my eye brows. Christina likes it that way. Shh.. don’t tell anyone again.
