Malinga maybe the favourite SL cricketer in Mumbai. It's not as if they pick him over Indian players. Malinga has a good fan base in SL and it's stupid to compare.
In general, SL fans are too harsh on Malinga when it comes to the SLC contract issue.
Indians love Malinga because they support their players when they do well.
SL fans don't remember Malinga's good performances. Indians love him because they support their players when they do well.
Is that what you are saying?
And i dont mean indain fans are better.But they always support there players when do well not like few guys who are really biased here who does not even giving the credit when the player does well.Those guys are pathetic than indian fans on that side of things.
agree with other part.specially with the first.Most people think malings should play cricket.Most of them not thinking what would happen if they are in that situation.May be if malinga continued playing test his career is already over by now.And with the way SLC and selectors deal with him by humiliating him,he took the best decision for country and him self.Just bcoz arjuna and few give a idea thats happened bcoz of money lot of people here start trusting it without looking at the deep side of things.And even one guy thread that malinga betrayed the country by not signing the contract.1st of all according to malinga no contracts offered so far.And second of all how it can be a betrayed to country if refusing the contract dont make any harm to SLC?He never refused to play a match so far.
This is what I can see. Indians are looking at this from a different perspective. Completely different scenarios. So they react differently.
Concerned about SLC contracts
Malinga hasn't done well for SL in recent times (CB Series)
Indian (Mumbai) fans
Don't give a shit about SLC contracts
Malinga has been doing well for them in i pee el
Apple and oranges if you get what I mean.
