Dear Sangakaras obvious decesion shouldn't surprise the cricket loving Sri Lankan public.

Do not over come evil by evil, but by love. Sangakaras needs more time to become a mature cricketer and a responsible leader. There are several genuine legends Lanka has produced, and it is high time to rally them around and build our cricket, WITHOUT ANY POLITICS, if Lanka needs to develop the game. Administration, Leading coaches and All should be ready appointed without any political involvements and inflences to select the national team.

We need Sanga but not to be part of the clowns that run SLC now and certainly not to partner the thieves. How can Sanga possibly fit in with the morons that run the game today.

I note the Minister wants Sanga to propose changes. Sanga and others just did that not too long ago and were ignored by the then Minister. We cannot run a professional game like a bunch of monkeys chopping and changing direction with every minister. It had to be a professional approach independent from politics.If the Minister wants the answer here is the first one - get the Minster out of the game!
