When Jaysuriya was selcted for the England tour he came on media and confirmed that he will retire from all form of cricket after playing for the T20 and first one day.How can he make this statement as the team will be selected only just before the toss on that day and he neither the captain nor the wicket keeper. So this is a fine example of how politicised is our selctions because he knew no one can stop him from these two matches unless he gets injured.I need this to be taken to the general cricket lovers.Thanks
