President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe are likely to be present at P Sara Oval Stadium in Colombo today to pay tribute to retiring cricket legend Kumar Sangakkara.

"After eight relaxed days of entering the Sri Lankan stadiums, suddenly we went through a massive security drill - like Indian-style frisking and checking," Sharda Ugra, a senior sports news editor reported in ESPN.

Kumar Sangakkara, who got out for 18 in his final Test innings, retires as the fifth-highest run-getter in Test Cricket format. Today’s cricket encounter will be Sangakkkara’s final Test match.

    a worthy tribute to a great cricketer of all time but no politics please in sports.

    We did not give a fight to give the great man a good farewell. Like the prez and pm we should have left the farewell after match. We lost focus from day 1.

    A Great Ambassador for SL.. in good times as well as bad... He was appropriately offered the HC job which he would perform to the best of his ability IRRESPECTIVE of politics and affiliation... BUT I wonder IF he would accept, coz once an ambassador, he may have to say " YES SIR" and bow his head to corrupt politicians who may visit UK .. which I bet, he wouldn't like... TY Sanga for all what u did to your COUNTRY.. not just ur ALMA MATER... country first !its the country that gave u a chance to perform at International level not the Alma Mater.. of course one should respect ones school..

    We should appreciate his contribution to the SriLanka cricket. Great Sanga. We salute you. All the best for the rest of your life.
