What separates these guys from the likes of Sanga,Mahela,Malinga and Dilshan is their ability to perform when it matters most. Arjuna,Aravinda and Sanath might not have great statistics but they will always be ahead of any other SL cricketer.
Best captain ever - Arjuna
Best batsman - Aravinda
Best entertainer and big match player - Sanath

Agree. Remember the time Sanath and Aravinda used to pulverize the Indian bowlers in the mid 1990s to early 2000s. If I remember correctly India lost 9 out 10 finals during that period involving 3 teams or more.

Can't remember last time when Dilshan or Sanga won us an all important final with the bat.

Mahela is good for losing WC finals and nothing else!!! He has proved it over and over again for Unlucky SL public. It's only a great leader can win a WC and Mahela will never win any kind of WC.So stop this best ever nonsense now, at least!!!
And do not underestimate Arjuna, the one and only captain who won a WC for mother SL.

I saw a question and answer in a comments section of a youtube video of SL cricket. I think that's sums up what happened over the lase decade:

User X : wat happened to the days when indians used to b our b*****s in cricket?
User Y : Aravinda and Sanath retired, that's wat happened

Once more Mahela has steped down.It's a habit of him.Does he think fans can be fooled by such an act? He should have quit playing cricket.
