Ze video. Relevant part starts about 3:15. Full set on Island Cricket
I wrote something further on Kumar Sangakkara’s Cowdrey lecture and the accompanying blowback for MyLaw.net, and Indian law portal. I’m actually the first Samarajiva for two generations to not be a lawyer. But that’s neither here nor there. The article is about Kumar’s speech, and the general nonse that’s been messing up Sri Lanka cricket quite publicly for the past year.
Here’s an excerpt:
The response from Sri Lanka’s cricket administration to his comments on, well, poor cricket administration has been received with a wide harrumph and the traditional call for an investigation. How does one investigate a speech? Listen to it? This is the usual window dressing for the defenestration of the messenger.
If you’re wondering, defenestration means to throw someone out of a window. I’ve been waiting like 20 years to use that word. Anyways, here’s a link to the article.
