Lasith Malinga: a traitor or a patriot?

Cricket is more a business than game nowadays. Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) sources say that pace bowler Lasith Malinga has declined to sign the agreement with for the upcoming year.

Malinga's present agreement is to expire on May 31, 2012.

SLC sources say that Malinga has declined to sign the agreement since the payment granted him was insufficient.

Lasith Malinga who earns around one million US dollars per a season of IPL cricket is agreed to pay 100,000 US dollars for the upcoming year.

However, he can claim only 60% of it since he does not play test cricket.

One might say Malinga is no patriot. He refuses to play for the nation while playing IPL. Yet he brings foreign currency that Sri Lanka badly needs for economic survival. He is a service exporter.
