Sri Lanka Cricket Quotes

"Obviously you only get an opportunity to play in the IPL based on what you have done for your country. If you do well for your country, then all eyes will be on you. Whatever opportunities I have got is because of what I have done for Sri Lanka. For the younger players as well, if you do well for your country, there will be other things that open up for you. The focus for any player will have to be delivering for his country at the international level. When you do that, the rest follows. "
