Former Sri Lanka Cricket Captain and UPFA Parliamentarian Sanath Jayasuriya today announced that he had decided to support United National Party (UNP) candidate Sagala Rathnayake at the upcoming general elections.

The former Deputy Minister, who was considered a loyalist of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa, said he decided to support the candidature of Rathnayake following a request made to him by the latter.

“He is a good human being who deserves to be in Parliament. I have therefore decided to extend my support to him considering the fact that we need good and honest people governing this country,” he told Daily Mirror.

Sagala Rathnayake, a former parliamentarian, is contesting from the hometown of the cricketing great- Matara- and is vying for a seat in Parliament in a hotly contested election. (Hafeel Farisz)

    He should do what he is good at, definitely not politics.

    He is a great Cricketer.

    He was a great cricketer but a disgraceful politician. His mistakes costed us the last world cup. When would Sri Lankans learn enjoy a graceful retirement?
