Star batsman Kumar Sangakkara said he was in no way interested in entering politics now or in the future as reported in the social media.

“These stories are completely baseless and are just irresponsible rumours. As I have stated in the past, I have absolutely no interest in entering politics now or in the future. Please ignore these stories,” he commented in his Facebook page.

The following is his full comment:

Hi – Thanks all for your messages of support after the last game. It was a good victory for us. Thiri played an outstanding knock. I have been told by friends that once again rumours are circulating about me entering politics. These stories are completely baseless and are just irresponsible rumours. As I have stated in the past, I have absolutely no interest in entering politics now or in the future. Please just ignore these stories. Looking forward to the big clash on Sunday and thank you for your continued support. Cheers, Sanga

    Hi Sanga, the world admires the Cricket you play so perfectly. You are an inspiration to the younger generation of Sri Lankan cricketers.I am certain you will never enter any kind of game you need to play dirty. I am happy you have confirmed this. As an old Trinitian I request you to continue to play for a couple of more years. You certainly have a lot more cricket left in you.

    We know that brother, it is not a good field for a person like you. it is a kind of self immolated your body and soul.

    s.bulathsinhala Tuesday, 03 March 2015 04:11 PM

    Politics is not your thing Sanga. You deserve much better and you have done the service due for your country, more than a current politician.. All the best.
