seeing you cry is like a blow to the forehead Mahela aiya. Dont be sad, you were our finest ever leader, you always gave 100% and your contribution will never be forgotten, always remembered nonetheless. Your decision was in the best interests of the team and country. Heads up Sir, you have many great years ahead!

Thanks for the photo. Shows the human side to all of this. It's a tough decision and it takes its toll. For those who thought he didn't care about his nation's sport, this is the best example of his love for Sri Lanka cricket.

On a par with Ranatunga as the best captain we've ever had.
