Is Angelo Mathews the sequel of Arjuna Ranatunga?

The curse and beauty of the Sri Lankan Team is they rarely get recognition for not only the fine Team they are but also the very talented individuals in the Team. Like the classic example is Kumar Sangakkara.... Answer this...... If a question was asked on a global cricket site about who is the World best batsman? How many would say Sanga - I dare say very few..... But this is more about the lack of coverage he gets rather than his record which pretty much dwarfs everyone else.

Mahela Jayawardena - The Kelani River of Sri Lankan Cricket

When I was aged six, I started my school life journey with my massive friend called 'Train'. I lived in Gampaha. Gampaha is also major district in Sri Lanka. It is situated 32km away from Colombo in Western Province in Sri Lanka. I saw lots of things through this journey. But one thing to me was very special. It’s a river called Kelani, which is one of the major rivers in Sri Lanka. In the morning & evening when it is sparkling with sun rays.It is a majestically beautiful sight to see. I think no one in trains ever experienced a sight as beautiful as this. Or the people in the river bank, I think they never took in this sight that is so part of the rich culture of my beloved Nation. This river is the life blood of Sri Lanka for many. For it gives water to drink, electricity for power. Sadly people neglect this river in regard to never full appreciating its meaning to Sri Lanka. It carries their tears, laughs and also sadly their wastes. Though it never blames them. It carries all these heavy burden & flows very calm & quiet to the sea. I remembered that a local cricket commentator said that there is a cricketer just like this river. When he scored nothing in a match all criticized him (especially journalists), but when he scored massive runs no one talked about that, only “a good work”! But all cricketers honor him . He is well known as Mahela.
