Sangakkara visits school, surprises kids in Bangladesh

It’s not everyday that a famous cricketer comes to your school. I had heard the rumours but I didn’t quite believe them until I saw the banner in the school entrance one sunny Tuesday morning, 4th March. Kumar Sangakkara, the Lankan wicketkeeper and ex-captain, really doesn’t need introductions. He and the team manager and coach had come to Sunbeams to talk to the students, especially the school cricket team. Beamers from every class were bewildered. Sangakkara was welcomed with a bouquet of flowers and the excited screams of 700 voices. As he started to speak, the whole audience murmured a delighted, “Aww.” Ms Munize Manzur conducted the interview. Sangakkara answered all the questions patiently. – The Daily Star
