A test of character for Sanath Jayasuriya

 As far back as I recall, since my childhood, I remember just one name which means "Cricket" to me. Being an Indian by birth, it's obvious cricket is one sport we all Indians die for, and I was not an exception.

The Story of a Legend - "Sanath Teran Jayasuriya"

Fine Vintage - Sanath Jayasuriya turns back the clock in style

When Sri Lankan batsman Sanath Jayasuriya made his debut in 1989, there were no mobile phones in India. There were no malls, no laptops, no SRK and no IPL. Cricket was a simple game then and Sanath Jayasuriya only made it simpler. He believed in a straight forward maxim: See the ball, hit the ball. Twenty years later, he still believes in that maxim. Only, he’s added another one: That age doesn’t matter as long as you are good. ‘‘So long as you are playing well and performing well, I’m not too worried about age. We have got very good trainers and physios and I work hard with them and the youngsters,’’ Jayasuriya said after scoring 81 in 47 balls and guiding Sri Lanka to a comfortable victory over Ireland at Trent Bridge on Wednesday.

Watch out for these Clashes : Sri Lanka vs Pakistan | Super 8

SANATH JAYASURIYA vs UMAR GUL

Sanath Jayasuriya is revelling in T20 and his big-match prowess will come in handy for Sri Lanka in the Super 8s. The 39-year-old warhorse showed ominous form during his scintillating 81 against the West Indies in their final group match on Wednesday. Pakistan will be hoping to tame Jayasuriya early and Umar Gul is just the man for the job. One of the finest exponents of T20 swing bowling, Gul has been among the wickets and has the ability to swing the ball both ways. Jayasuriya will also have to watch out for his deceptive slower deliveries.

Muttiah Muralitharan | A Pure Genius

Big, bold eyes, bristling with sunshine and laughter, hope and joy, would surely have shed tears from the inside. Beneath his infectious charm and that buoyant exterior, Muttiah Muralitharan conceals pain and anguish, frustration and anger.

His dazzling off-spin might have illuminated the dullest of arenas, but then the Lankan's career has been a blend of the light and the shade with dark clouds often threatening his very existence in the game.

To all of us, SL fans, he is our glittering ornaments, to others he is no more than an impostor, who had managed to hoodwink the law. The ends shall never meet.
Murali has learnt to put a lid over his emotions, his cricketing quest appears driven by that rage within. The fire only he can extinguish.
