 This is good. I hope he will retire and contest in the election. Young players will get chances. Having said that knowing Sanath I am not surprised if he decided to contest in the election while playing. 
Then he will become a real joker. 

I wonder if he did that what excuses his die hard fans are going to give.

"When contacted by Daily Mirror online Jayasuriya confirmed that he has been invited by the UPFA to contest the polls but did not wish to comment further as he is still a contracted cricketer."

This may be just a rumor?

I hope this is not true. That's the end of his cricket career.

First time in history of world sport, possibly a minister, perhaps sports minister will play for the country in the world cup. He will sack the selectors, if they sack him. He will dissolve the interim committee and appoint a new one who is favourable to his qwest of representing his country in the 2015 world cup.

 Oh dear!

But can't say I am surprised, it was only a matter of time. 

If he makes it into his political manifesto " I'm going to make all SL  top and middle order bat like I did till a  few years ago", I'll vote for him

ha ha ha that is a good one. My only worry is whether he will try to do the both. Then what about IPL. It is due during election days. Hard to think he will give up IPL. If he did that Sujan will be really dissapointing.  I think someone will have to do his campaign behalf of him.
