    I got the opportunity of meeting all the cricketers at the T 20 world cup tour and realized the remarkable politeness and the degree of respect to others by you and Manhela had. Both of you behaved as Ambassadors of Sri Lanka.Your quitting from T 20 team and staying for ODIs and Test team may be for best interests of SL.
    Your golden words and conduct may be an example to those who are badly needed. My best wishes and congratulations

    I like to see the same commitment from SLC to grab the 50-50 World cup in 2015 and would like to see Sanga and Mahela play to their potential and then retire.

    I too got to know from the reliable sources, some more seniors will retire soon and only hyenas will remain.

    If our Cricket Administrators would have treated Sanga he will never retire, anyway its a great loss for us.

    The great thing is not to retire from Test Cricket while still in "touch" & going into play more lucrative Twenty/20.

    I think it is right time for world class players like Sanga and Mahela to retire from all formats while they are in peak in their cricketing career. They have given budding novelists required coaching already.
