Sri Lanka and India play bilateral series too many times.

India and Sri Lanka cricket team are seen together more often than Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and airplane. Both spend nearly equal time in each other's country. Not always, though! Sometimes Indians have to spend more time (CC: Indian fishermen). 

Seeing the continuous cricket between two countries, the two boards BCCI and SLC have decided to let Sri Lanka play in Indian Premier League. Now India and Sri Lanka won't have to play each other again and again in a bilateral series.

The news has pleased the Indian cricket fans. They were watching Sri Lanka play just for India. It's like smoking cigarette just to get rid of a cough.

Unlike the fans, Rohit Sharma is unhappy with the step. Rohit will now have to wait to score big in international cricket. However, Sri Lanka's addition in IPL as the ninth team has increased the hopes of other batsmen. 

Teams like Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi Daredevils and Kings XI Punjab are feeling assured of not finishing last. For a change, Delhi and Punjab will be fighting for second last position this time. Delhi, who can clearly see their favorite position in danger, wants to now buy Ashoke Dinda, Ishant Sharma and Chris Gayle to seal the last place.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli is happy that he will now face tough opponents in international cricket. "I am glad to hear the news. Playing against opponents which don't deserve 'Sham tak khelenge toh inki G**D fatt jayegi' in international cricket are boring," said a happy Virat hiding his RCB jersey. 

Sri Lankan cricketer, on the other hand, are drinking coconut water from last night in celebration. They are excited to join the famous T20 league. "My friends and I are drinking coconut water since last night. We are not going to stop anytime soon. Dickwella had prayed to all ten heads of Ravana and it paid off. We want to thank BCCI too," said Suranga Lakmal, Sri Lankan pacer.
