    Here we go again. All the "Keyboard Heroes" come out and criticise a person with a rare talent. Sanga you fully deserve this award and all the best in the future. You could have been a prominent Lawyer in SL if you wanted. But you gave us so much pleasure by opting to play cricket instead. Thanks immense.

    Congratulations Sangha a real great Cricketer and Gentleman. I have seen your performances in Australia and N.Z during the recent world cup and admired your modesty and techniques that brought you centuries in 4 consecative matches.Guys like you who have the brains ,intellect, and a great command of the English language and vision are a rare commodity among the people with little culture nor proper education that run the affairs of sports in this country. The appointment of Navin as Sports Minister is a refreshing break from the Yako Mudalalis who ran Cricket to fill their purses Good luck Sanga and hang on for at least another season so we can enjoy you fantastic talents as a great Batsman like Lara, Bradman,Richie Benaud, Tendulkhar,Botham and Hadley among others.

    Sanga is well deserved to receive the Award and have brought pride to the Asians and Motherland. Wish Him good health to keep on continuing in the same spirt

    Bala Saturday, 18 April 2015 09:57 AM

    Congratulations and good luck in the future. But do anything but politics as this culture here in SL is everyone trying to get something from the people and country but nothing in return.

    Dutchy Saturday, 18 April 2015 10:08 AM
