Contract snub doesn’t bother Jayasuriya

Sri Lanka's 41-year-old all rounder, Sanath Jayasuriya has no regrets over missing the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) annual contract. He has been a permanent fixture in the Sri Lanka side after playing a key role in the 1996 World Cup, but found himself dropped from the list.

Speaking exclusively over his mobile from Worcestershire, he said, "I have no regrets. Those who perform well, get contracts. I can not make comments on who have made this decision, but even without contract, I can play for the nation".

In January 2009, during the first ODI against India, he became the second man to cross 13,000 runs in ODIs', and at the age of 39 years and 212 days, he became the oldest man to score an ODI century.

The contracts to the 20 players have been worked out on previous year's performances and found no place for him. Interestingly, Muthiah Muralidharan, who is set to retire from Test cricket after the Galle Test against India, has been retained in the list.

Sanath Jayasuriya will not be able to witness Murali's farewell Test from the VIP enclosure. "I am returning (to Sri Lanka) only by the end of this month and will miss watching him play the last Test. However, I have already sent him a good-luck message for his last Test. He is a great player, who has done lot for the country and not only we, as team mates, but the entire nation will miss him", Jayasuriya further added.

Jayasuriya is likely to be appointed as a guest studio commentator by Ten Sports to air his views on the Sri Lanka-India matches, along with Arun Lal and Dean Jones. He may not play for Worcestershire's final two matches.
