Will there be Consensus?

Lots of interesting and amusing events happened in Sri Lanka last week. Let me start with the most unusual, an event that has not happened anywhere in the world. Cricket lovers would know that the MCC team is now in Sri Lanka and the first test ended in a thrilling draw due to rain and bad light on Friday. But what they would not have known is that Sri Lankan Cricket Board Chairman Thilanga Sumathipala was not present at the Galle Stadium to watch the match.

He was absconding from police detectives of the CID, who reported on Saturday that they could not find Sumathipala either in his home or office. The CID is looking for him to produce before a court of law on a directive from the Attorney General
