No cricket posts for sometime now. But its time to say good bye to one of the greatest and effective players of our time Sri Lanka's Sanath Jayasuriya.
He is one of my favorite cricketers and no doubt has a huge fan following as hes an entertainer.
From being an ordinary left arm spinner and a lower order batsman he became a terror to new ball bowlers , an entertainer, six hitter,wicket taking spinner in both forms of cricket.1996 wills world cup was the occasion he chose to show the world what he can do and was instrumental in Sri Lanka's world cup success.
one of the pillars of sri lankan cricket in the last decade led Sri lanka to many of their one day successes.He was effective in the tests scoring a personal best of 340 against a hapless indian attack in colombo.fastest 50 in one dayers and 2020 and the max runs in a over in ODIS are few of his long list of records.
The 2nd test between Sri Lanka and England was the last test match of the master blaster from matara.Sri lankan cricket and the cricket fans world over will miss his game but his exploits on the field will sure be remembered.
