    Why should the most famous and supposed to be most loved personality in Sri Lanka have army body guards. It is a shame.

    saman Sunday, 16 January 2011 06:05 AM

    All u ungreatful ppl pls do not forget the good times of entertainment he gave us as a cricketer. Respect him for what he was. It's OK to get involved in an accident and yes, its OK to have a bodyguard, now that he has turned into a politician.

    I didnt approve of his playing in the current team to represent SL in the world cup, but I will not disrespect him. He is a legend. See the respect he commands in India, West Indies and the world over.

    All u negative commentators pls learn the meaning of the word "accident" it is not done on purpose...... IDIOTS.

    politics has ruined your image. Still it is not too late to get out of it. Remember politics is not for you.

    buruwa Sunday, 16 January 2011 07:06 AM

    All gone as he entered the dirty game(politics) from the gentle man's game thats cricket.
    So Sana deserves these comments now!!!!

    Mahesh Hettiarachchi Sunday, 16 January 2011 07:11 AM

    May God bless our Sana boy!

    ruwan Sunday, 16 January 2011 07:16 AM

    Every body respect him as a great cricketer, but these days most of the people does not like him these days the way of playing in cricket,politics and as a normal person.

    Sri Lanka had produced so many world class individuals, but in the recent past it was Sanath J. Who made Sri Lanka proud in his unorthodox cricketing style. True, the time has come for him to call it a day. Cricket is the only sport that we could dominate the world stage, Sanath, Aravinda & ,Murali’s contributions were immense and unmatchable. Don’t have to go very far, our giant neighbor still respect Senath’s talent .They knew how dangerous player Sanath was. In Very shortsighted Sri Lankan society, any legend is no legend in no time for some selfish -People. Hard to stomach, that’s who we are!. It is a Shame.

    So! those idiots wearing white paper bags on their hands and waving like mad were not capable of shooing the bike rider away? My sympathies with whoever was on the bike.

    Ranjan Rodrigo Sunday, 16 January 2011 10:33 AM

    Cant Sanath see how much of a joke and laughing stock he has become.He only has to read comments.Even foreugn coubtries are laughing at him. Enough is enough.

    wimalasiri Monday, 17 January 2011 04:13 AM

    Sanath you forgot your past. you came from matara beach dont forget that. You dont have a good character as well

    KHKaru Monday, 17 January 2011 04:53 AM

    Sanath may be a spent force, but please don't ridicule him. We all enjoyed his type of power batting and wily bowling, in his hey-day and he was instrumental in winning us many a match. We must be grateful for that.

    Patriot Sunday, 16 January 2011 12:32 PM

    Correction - WAS a legend. Now he's a political thug who abuses his power and goes around with armed convoys on the wrong side of the road!

    Emarat Sunday, 16 January 2011 12:47 PM

    he is giving MASTER PLASTER

    buruwa Sunday, 16 January 2011 12:47 PM

    I love Master blaster Sana.But don't care about politico Sana!!!!

    Umpire Sunday, 16 January 2011 01:28 PM

    How does he play cricket with army protection. Then a team should have 12-15 members.

    defi Tuesday, 18 January 2011 02:15 AM

    best allrounder in the world

    sira Monday, 17 January 2011 06:49 AM

    Typical Sri Lankans. Just dont like to swallow what MR did to free LANKa (NOT SF). Respect others views. SJ selected what suites him most not what the arrogant, shortsighted, pundits advice.

    harris Monday, 17 January 2011 12:19 PM

    rosh Sunday, 16 January 2011 06:14 PM
