I have been a fan of yours since TCK days when you were an example to other students with your simplicity despite being a talented sportsman and an excellent student. You were loved by the people when you were picked to play for Sri Lanka and turned out to be one of the best cricketers ever produced by this country.
But what has happened to you? You have developed a massive accent and your behavior shows as if you are a Britisher and not a Sri Lankan.
Dear Sanga, please get back to what you were. Get rid of this absurd accent and return to being a Sri Lankan and speak English the way you did at Trinity, which was fantastic, especially your speech at college, after you had left. Even the best English products of Trinity, such as Jayantha Dhanapala, Sarath Amunugama etc. highly commend your effort.
My advice to you is to drop this silly accent and become a Trinitian again, so that you will be able to perform as you did before.
Please Sanga, get back to what you were.
A devoted cricket lover from Kandy,
What’s Sri Lanka’s best overseas Test win?
