Sri Lankan cricketing legend, former Captain and current Chairman of the Cricket Selection Committee, UPFA Parliamentarian for the Matara district, Sanath Jayasuriya speaks to the Daily Mirror Online about his recent appointment and the controversies surrounding it.
The difference between Sanath & Hashan: People know that Sanath got it because he's an MP of the government politician but for Hashan, it is not because he's a politician of UNP. You cannot fool people that you got it on merit even though you have merit as a former cricketer.

If he deserves an opportunity let him retire from cricket to be selected on to this position. He still didn't retire from cricket, so there will be issues in the future.

Maybe we should. But we are skeptical after what has happened in the past. If he puts politics aside and does a good job, we'll give him the credit he deserves.

Sanath, just concentrate only in politics. The poor people need you to stay in the village. You don't have the experince for this job. You will ruin cricket in Sri Lanka.

He did not understand the statagist angle, how can one convey ideas if they do not have ideas, he has skills and how does he convey this to anyone........the pus will fly now.

I don't know whether he will become a good politician or not but, he shouldn't be a cricket commentator anymore with his accent

The guy deserves this oppurtunity, let him perform. If he does not do well then blame him. Stop being prejudice and cynical about his appointment. All the best Sana!!!
Sam Sunday, 03 February 2013 03:14 AM
His comments on the state of Sri Lanka was condescendingly simplistic ...to put it kindly. I hope he just sticks to cricket.

A cricketer then. A politician now. Simple..:)
Nandika Sunday, 03 February 2013 05:29 AM
