Dude you are quickly loosing your sense of humor. Give it a break and get some fresh and funny ideas.

@Pathiyal Oh really? Remember how he cried that umpiring errors had robbed his team of about 500 runs, instead of just acknowledging the Indian team's victory in the test series? Remember also, how Upul Tharanga claimed a catch of Rahul Dravid after the ball had touched his (Tharanga's) helmet, and Sangakarra didn't withdraw the appeal despite seeing it clearly? Not all Indians have a short memory like you, so don't speak on behalf of all Indians.

I can easily see how this cartoon can be demoralizing to some fans. Satish, you know how emotional sub-continant fans are. You could not have chosen a wrong time for this. Apologies to SL fans from an Indian.

hilarious! 'yes' needless to tell that Sanga is not a cheat. not many of us (or precisely none of us) in india ever had any bad opinion about Sanga. the truth is we have many fans of the SL team here. for us, we have more respect for them than we have for aussies or paks. we have seen him growing up as a champ and then as a fantastic skipper. i have followed him and Mahela on their way upto here and we understand that they are still on their way. deservingly, he is the captain of the world eleven. i think msd would agree that sanga has an edge over him as a batsman and as a wicket keeper.

I'm an Indian, but I can see how this can be interpreted as rubbing salt in the wound by some Sri Lankans. The cartoon would have been even funnier if Dhoni was wearing the vest, showing off his guns :)

Chill guys, its a cartoon. If you cant get the funny side you shouldnt be even looking at the Cartoon. Read some serious article.

ya this is a bad joke...im a sri lankan and i dont appreciate this joke.....sanga is a v v honest person and he did call heads at the toss...this catoon portrays sanga as being a cheat. which he isnt....poor joke satish......

Peace guys! The cartoon isn't saying that Sanga cheated. He just wants to try out the option of making India bat first. Even I wonder what would have been the outcome if India won the toss and batted first!

guys loosen up, Satish is trying to convey the idea of Dhoni's call for batting first misreading the toss. good work Satish
