He is our own mr. perfectionist! Yes, whenever sanga delivers something, he delivers with perfectionism. So, sanga did it again. In a historical and extra ordinary speech in MCC Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey lecture, sanga blast his own cricket board in the manner, he used to blast bowlers of opposite teams.
In this speech, sanga was critical of Sri Lanka`s cricket administration, which he said should be more professional, transparent and forward thinking if the common man was not to be alienated. Without a second of fear, sanga said fearlessly that The administration needs to adopt the same values enshrined by the team over the years: integrity, transparency, commitment and discipline.
Though, after sanga’ saga, now srilankan government has lashes out on him and gave a hard finger towards him. But don’t be surprised, it’s the nature of srilanka cricket and its covering body- government. After all, whats the wrong if sanga said that governing body of srilanka cricket should be corruption free. Don’t we know that what the financial irregularities board did in past. And what’s the wrong if sanga said that sanath jayasuriya managed to came back in the team for one one last time, just because of his political influence. Sanath is a legend, no doubt about it, but it should not be the way to re-inter in the team. World saw, what the magic dinesh chandimal create, when he got a chance in the team, in place of the great sanath jayasuriya.
So, be united, it’s the time to salute sanga…and also support him, against a government, who prefers to eat all the profits of srilanka cricket!
