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

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

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

    Sanjaya Friday, 10 June 2011 04:26 AM

    I thought people retired him long time ago.

    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

    Let his Last Hurrah be a Lasting Hurrah.

    rohandil Friday, 10 June 2011 02:35 AM

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

    Manel Friday, 10 June 2011 02:27 AM

    Very correct!!!

    saradiyal Thursday, 09 June 2011 01:13 PM

    Spot Fixing.Ha Ha Ha.Hashan was correct.

    Black Mamba Thursday, 09 June 2011 01:11 PM

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

    Shan Thursday, 09 June 2011 01:09 PM

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

    Bumba Thursday, 09 June 2011 11:51 AM

    Has he said this before?

    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.

    Farzan Thursday, 09 June 2011 01:04 PM

    Retirement or a break and come back?

    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?????????

    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...........

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

    Good player, but wrong channel.

    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!

    AZ Thursday, 09 June 2011 12:46 PM

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

    Banda Thursday, 09 June 2011 12:50 PM

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

    Don Thursday, 09 June 2011 11:54 AM

    waste of money and time!

    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.

    dilshan Thursday, 09 June 2011 11:51 AM
