Jayasuriya to contest under UPFA ticket

All-rounder and veteran cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya who entertained Sri Lankan and world cricket fans with his aggressive batting for more than two decades, will contest for the upcoming General Election. He will also come into politics under the UPFA ticket from the Matara District.

“I will not give up cricket though I come into politics. I was pushed to this decision after an exhaustive study” the master blaster told the Daily News. I have nothing to earn from the politics like many others do. But I can work for the people who loved me a lot, added Jayasuriya.

It is the bounden duty to serve the people, in return, for what they did for me to come to this position. When the UPFA invited me to contest for General Elections I accepted it since this is a golden opportunity to work people wholeheartedly, said the veteran cricketer.

The senior and oldest cricketer in the National Cricket Team further stressed that he has come a long way and has entertained all cricket fans at his greatest strength and he wants to continue it giving maximum satisfaction for the people who were behind his success irrespective of their differences.

The 40 year old cricketer, responding to the clearance report from the Sri Lanka Cricket Board to contest for the election while playing Cricket, explained “everything has been solved and I will definitely contest for the forthcoming General election.”
