Default Sangakkara Retiring After India Series

So the last legend left in Sri Lankan team is bowing out

Quote:
Kumar Sangakkara confirmed he will retire from international cricket after the second Test of Sri Lanka's forthcoming series against India, calling time on one of the most successful careers in modern cricket. Sangakkara will not play the third Test in the ongoing series against Pakistan, choosing instead to play for county side Surrey, before returning to Sri Lanka ahead of the first Test against India.

"I have decided to call it a day on my international career during the second Test of the Indian series," Sangakkara said after stumps on day three of the second Test in Colombo. "This was the commitment I had made with the previous selection committee. I had originally planned to retire after the World Cup, but following discussions with the previous selectors, I gave the commitment that I will be available for these two series.
More on...http://www.espncricinfo.com/sri-lank...ry/891861.html

What a marvelous career he has had, and the stats to back them up are beastly, he will be greatly missed in the Test side for SL

But, this is also fantastic news for BDeshi fans, players and especially bowlers, who very well know the terror he had brought upon us over the years
Joy Bangla!

Sangakarra was a nightmare for bd fans. Wish him all the best post retirement. Such a great batsman.

Right up there with the great Brian Charles Lara as the most stylish batsman I have seen playing.

The end of an illustrious career, the average in Tests is one to admire.

Offer him a batting coach job... he will feel at home. Chandika, his compatriot is already a huge plus.

Sanga is going to play for Surrey. Not sure though. Also that he is going to finish law degree.

For the old BD team perhaps. Current BD team is good enough not to require the self deprecation of honorary players. Just need a change of captain, better pitches, and introduction of Taskin, Mustafizur, and Jubair who are 100% Bangladeshi. No need to follow English model.

Haturi mama is a good batting coach. Someone is a head coach doesn't mean he cannot take the role of batting coach.

I still think he'd be a miracle worker for our test team. He would solve so many problems at once: brilliant captain, brilliant wicket keeper, can bat for long periods and is a run-making machine.

That's long. Maybe the BCB will organize a series before that.
