    Both of them deserve their awards. They are gentleman and always keep away from dirty politics. They don't stoop down to low level like many of our prominent cricketers. Well Done.

    Janaki Kalansuriya Friday, 13 December 2013 12:28 PM

    Congratulations to both you brilliant sportsmen. But be careful, the king will see an opportunity to have you seemingly be helping sport under him. Sanath's ill fame will certainly come your way too, if you get political.
