There's a huge difference in development beyond the U-19 years. Their teenagers - crap as teenagers, shooperstars as grown-ups. Our teenagers - flash in the pan performances, then some more flashing in the pan as grown-ups, then dropped forever only to leave the country and open up a chaa er dokan in NYC.

Not to mention Sri Lanka is the land of the real life mutants, freaks of nature who excel at the highest level, because of their freaky nature.
Screw the IPL, I'm going to the MLC
