Very well done Sanga! It brought tears to my eyes and it is a sensational and a motivating speech. We are proud of you and proud of our cricket. No matter what's the circumstances you face after revealing the bitter truth of the administration; all Sri-lankans are with you. Wish the politicians are like you but unfortunately it wont happen. We are proud of you Sanga!

Well done Sanga, that was an Excellent speech delivered. We are proud to be Sri Lankans. I wish there were many more people like you with backbones. Never fear to say the truth - ignore all the political stooges and their threats. It is sad indeed we lack good, talented people like you. I sincerely hope at least at this point the SLCB will realise the damage they have caused the game of cricket simply for their personal gain. I wish you the the best in your cricketing career and life. Our prayers and good wishes are with you. Keep up the good work!
