    Sangakara brought pride to our country, but our dirty politicians destroyed all the dignity we had.

    Great..... great....... great...... he had set an example for our new Cricketers. Honestly, he should be in our selection committee and also he should coach our boys - pay any amount, its not a loss.

    Sanga is the one and only Sri Lankan cricketer who achieved many goals in and out of the field. Next is his captain, fellow teammate, and buddy Mahela Jayawardane.
