Coach Mahela Jayawardena IPL’s Star now SLC’s loss

Former Sri Lanka master batsman, wonderful team man and captain par excellence Mahela Jayawardena must be having that over-the-moon feeling after coaching the Mumbai Indians to win yet another Indian Premier League title.

From the many coaches on display at the lucrative IPL, Mahela Jayawardena proved himself the best and it is great credit not only to the Mumbai Indians but above all to the country of his birth Sri Lanka.

It must be recalled he first joined the Sri Lanka team as a replacement in South Africa under the team led by Arjuna Ranatunga. Although not playing in any of the big games, he got the feel of what it is to be in the big league and the intensity of what Test cricket is all about.
