    I thought people retired him long time ago.

    Sana wait till the private sector pension scheme get approved. so you too can have a pension from SLC also.

    Same as SF

    England must be really relieved to hear Sana is retiring after 1st ODI.

    Bumba Thursday, 09 June 2011 11:51 AM

    Has he said this before?

    dilshan Thursday, 09 June 2011 11:51 AM

    whats the use of taking him all the way to engalnd if he is retiring after first game ?????
    Or is its a game, where the board would request him to play the next few games as well & he will say yes delightfully putting his coller rup :-)

    Darrak Thursday, 09 June 2011 11:52 AM

    How it now makes me sad.....But good choice Sanath....Retire like a gentleman. Retire like a hero. All the best.

    Don Thursday, 09 June 2011 11:54 AM

    waste of money and time!

    Banda Thursday, 09 June 2011 12:50 PM

    He has already damaged his reputation. No longer we can consider him as a gentleman.

    AZ Thursday, 09 June 2011 12:46 PM

    Finally!!!!!!!!! Pls don't come back like u did for tests.. go with some self respect

    misunderstood Thursday, 09 June 2011 12:57 PM

    if you perform well u can retire like a hero proving that others were wrong. if you fail - god save your goodwill!

    Yehiya-Doha Thursday, 09 June 2011 12:55 PM

    Good player, but wrong channel.

    MOHAMED RIZWAN Thursday, 09 June 2011 12:57 PM

    he haven't got a chance to retire...poor guy..he was waiting for an opportunity like this to make his announcement...hmm at least..you have put your self to bad corner by entering politics....shame of you hero...........

    Sanjeewa V Thursday, 09 June 2011 01:04 PM

    Sana Should retire gracefully without being burden to the SLC or to young talent, if he has dignity……Does he?????????

    Manel Friday, 10 June 2011 02:27 AM

    Very correct!!!

    Farzan Thursday, 09 June 2011 01:04 PM

    Retirement or a break and come back?

    rosh Thursday, 09 June 2011 01:06 PM

    Still worthy enough to put the first match in drains even if this one is actually going to get retire after it. He wants some farewel and media attention. He was anyway a publicity hunger and attention seeker. We will waive off the first match from our memories, and see the real 4 matches after.

    rosh Thursday, 09 June 2011 01:09 PM

    if he fails, he will ask for another chance.. may be he would keep trying till he is on a walking stick

    rohandil Friday, 10 June 2011 02:35 AM

    Nice humble guy..we would never see a player like him again.

    Shan Thursday, 09 June 2011 01:09 PM

    Why not make retirement age at 80, as pension also applies at that age...

    Black Mamba Thursday, 09 June 2011 01:11 PM

    But if he get a ton in the first, what then?

    saradiyal Thursday, 09 June 2011 01:13 PM

    Spot Fixing.Ha Ha Ha.Hashan was correct.

    Nihal Amarasekera Friday, 10 June 2011 02:58 AM

    Let his Last Hurrah be a Lasting Hurrah.

    uglytruth Friday, 10 June 2011 03:30 AM

    see the greedy of our Politicians/palyers,.... How nice if he could refuse the England tour letting someone new to play instead

    crickfan Friday, 10 June 2011 09:17 AM

    dont forget that SL cricket have come this distance because Sanath. not because politicos like you.
