They aren't getting any younger and the Lankans haven't been able to find suitable young batsmen who can develop enough to replace them when they retire.

"O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant." (49:13)
