Cricket is a gentleman’s game and every cricketer should play it like a gentleman. YouƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ was called Master Blaster, best opener, best allrounder, best of best in everything in cricket and lately you was called member of parliament Sanath Jayasuriya. So now Mr.Master Blaster your time has come to retire and give another village boy like you to become another Master Blaster if you are not jealous. We all have a time limit to do things in our life and there will be a time to take hard decisions whether it’s wrong or correct.Now that time has come for you Dear Sanath think wisely for the sake of the country first not yourself. It’s time to give other best player a chance to be like SANATH JAYASURIYA. Just think of great athleats in the world who has done so much and left the great sports giving others to have a chance likewise I hope you too take a good decision and leave this great game you love so much as you have another game to start with the people of Sri Lanka where you was born.
We had a great time watching you playing for our Motherland like a true worrior all these past years. Sri lankans love you very much and they all appreciate what you have achieved in the cricket field.You are an inspiration to young cricketers in our own country and around the world. When you come to the crease there’s an excitement all around the ground and beyond. It was beautiful to watch you play and your picture was all over the news on the next day and that was Sanath Jayasooriya. Players called you Sanath Aiya because they loved you and you was like aƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ teacher for them,they listened and respected you because you played thisƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ gentleman’s game like a true gentleman.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ You received trophies and accolades fromƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  every country you played cricketƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ for your achievements on the field and now everyone feels that the MASTER BLASTER should retire in grace as a player in the National team and give his place to a talented young star same like him to lead our country in to new heights in world cricket. Be like otherƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ greats in sports who retired keeping their label like Michael Jordan, Zidane, Shane Warne,Adam Gilchrist,Brian Lara few to remind who has done great service to sports in different fields and dont be like Ranil Wickremesinghe who has lost eighteen times in his field of politics and never wants to give up.
You cannot be the same when you grow old now you have another game to play that is inƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ politics and that is more important because our President needs each and every memebr of Parliament to do their job witout wasting time and money and give the people of Sri Lanka a better place to live tomorrow as he and you promised during the election time.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ I think you better concentrate on that as people of your electorate have high hopes on you to do a better job solving the probelms ofƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  the masses and make our Motherland a light of Asia. Last few days we read on the news papers that you loved to play the world cup in 2011 it’s not fair my dear Sanath the Master Blaster you cannot be in the cricket field for that long because you have six years to serve your country and your people as a politician and playing cricket in the National team for another one year is not fair to your electorate or to the youngsters who is dreaming to play in the world cup as most of them have done much better than you in the past few tournaments. If you want to play cricker more and more because you love it then play club cricket or in tournaments like IPL where you can earm some money and use itƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ to do something good for the poor masses in your electorate and to the country. Dont be greedy for more and more in anthing but just be a nice guy and serve your country in the field you have selected to do as the next assignment. We all want you to do in the same style in politics be a Gentleman and serve the people of your Motherland in Honesty and Honourably as we all love you Sanath as a cricketer and a politician belongs to the great party of our beloved President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
When cricket selecters give you the place to play people knows that it’s not a fair game as you are not in form these past couple of monthsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ as you too know it very well and we have other youngsters who are in form and can do a better job same as you at the correct time therefore lets be fair and and give them a chance to prove it and you can help them by giving some tips how to become an alrounder in cricket.You are the most ODI’s played player in the world and one of the best alrounders in world cricket so you have so much to teach the youngsters and you can produce more and more cricketers from Matara as you the the highest vote getter in Matara district in the past elections. I dont like people accusing our President for favouringƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  you and giving you the place in the National team when you are in worst form in International cricket. Time has come to leave the cricket field in dignityƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ and in sportsmanship and I know most of the citizens of our country will agree with me on this subject and will wish you good luck and good health and willƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ love to see how you will play in the political field from now on.
The people of Matara has witnessed your marvalous shots in cricket for so many years now time to show them a different Sanath and make Matara a model city like in Europe with good education for the children, Carpeted roads, Jobs for all,and good living condition to all people alike to live a decent life as per the Mahinda Chintana Idiri Dekma. Our President has freed our beloved nation from ruthless terrorism for all of us to live in peace and harmony and your job is as peoples representatives to see that everyone irrespective of race, color or religion to have a peaceful life in the future. Follow the President and work hard as him and give the people Hope and happiness they deserve after thirty years of bloody war with the Tamil terrorists. You Sanath have the charisma and stamina to play an important role as an M.P. to uplift the standard of the people in Matara and beyond. So join the Rajapaksa’s and play the political game without getting out in one term.
We want you to be a good,inteligent peoples representative to solve problems of the masses and let the youngsters play the game of cricket for our country and bring back the world cup in 2011 without SANATH JAYASURIYA the MASTER BLASTER.
We all wish you a better future and love to see your hook shots once in a wayƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ not in the parliament but in the field.

    I agree with all the sentiments expressed by Ranjith. An embarassing subject but handled with much sensitivity. Mario Perera, Kadawata

    Sanath should have retired at the height of his career. Like lot of politicians who never want to retire, he was a real fool to continue when his time is over. You did a good job when you could. So Sanath, understand that your time is over and leave. Learn it is time that you should leave it to others more capable and younger.
