Sri Lanka cricket Captain Mahela Jayawardane said that he had a ‘bit of cricket’ left in him. “I feel that I have a bit of cricket left in me, but that said, it’s always good to look back and introspect,” Jayawardane told Wisden India, when he was asked if it was the right time to look back at his career.
“I wouldn’t change things. I have made mistakes in my career, but I’ve tried to learn from these and grow as a cricketer and as a human being. There’s no doubt I got better by making mistakes and learning from them. If you want to stay at the game for a length of time, have a balanced perspective, it’s always good to look back and see how you got through your tough times. It definitely helps to reflect on the scenarios that made you the player you are, see if you can improve now. The older you get, you still want to compete at the level you have set for yourself. Once you’ve set a standard, you have to keep up with it. The day you realise you can’t maintain those standards, it’s time to move on,” he said.
