    He is one of the excellent player Srilanka has produced among the other grate players like Roy,Asantha,Aravinda , Arjuna,Mahela,Muralidaran,Vass,Mavan,Mahanama , but he should have gone longwhile before to offer opportunity to our young players.Sad thing is that we still cant separate politics from the game of grate cricket.
