Sanga’s next job?

My take on Sanga being offered the job of Sri Lankan High Commissioner to the UK:

  • For what Sanga has contributed to Sri Lanka and cricket, he deserves the highest recognition.
  • Foreign Service is as specialised a job as cricket, although we have tended to ‘pollute’ it with political appointees in the past. 
  • Foreign Service should not be used as a ‘farewell gift’ for retirees or as a ‘consolation prize’ for election losers!
  • In any case, I believe Sanga can play a much bigger role in world cricket. Sri Lanka will benefit more from a ‘Global Sanga’.
