sanga's yankee accent gets to me a little, I always preferred mahela.
Sanga doesn't have an American accent. He has a British accent. That's because he went to an English private school in SL. Pretty much anyone from that school speaks like that.
But what I do admire about Sanga is when he speaks Sinhalese, like he did during the presentation ceremony after semi finals, he doesn't mix English and Sinhala. When he speaks Sinhala he speaks pure Sinhala, no English words. When he speaks English he speaks pure English.
