On Sanga's first Politcal Match and Batting ( rehearsal) tenderly ............................

I do not think that i can ever look at Sanga as a politician. Perhaps, i might have to try. When Mr. Arjuna Ranathunge started batting politically , the matches against or support a single party / parties sometimes as a opposition player and as a member of the party he represented, i didn't felt the way that i feel today about sanga joining active politics or supporting a particular Party. Reason is that the political spectacles that i was using at that time didn't provide me clear enough visionary pictuers or i was 'nil' in political knowledge at least up to the level, today. That doesn't mean i know A-Z of politics today than yesterdays. I never think that i will be able to get a total picture of current politics / inner political plans or how they really represent people, 'what politics really is' etc. Because ever since i was able to understand at least a drop of politics, i noticed that there is no stability in some of the party political roles / players.

Most the matches that they were able to play since soulbery was introduced to this country kept a single question or all era series of questions before 'public' such as 'are they really representing us', are they really servants of public?, Do they really want to work for us?, 'they have no affection towards 'power'?, They have no other hidden intentions joining politics, such as Fame and power? do they really want o eradicate poverty?, Why they talk more about subsidies other than anything else?, i can think of many questions but right now my mind is fills with some cricketery thoughts

Sanga, how many members were there when you were in the Team , Cricket? 11 with extras, or is it more ?

The Members of the selection committee, The sponsoring Teams, The Ground supporters, the commentary teams, you can exclude and analyze

But when you are entering party politics , active politics it is not just 11 or slightly more members that you will have to deal with. Ah! no i am not writing this without knowing your 'awareness' on nature of party politics, the levels, provinces, districts, national lists, the manapa lists, seats, who sits on the other sides, the strongness of your opposition. Yes, Cricket  is a game but unlike in the game of politics you get the attention and respect of the whole country, without really dividing it or portioning it among others. The respect you have earned or earning after or between each the match you play was soulfully important because you had no side other than the side of your country. Do you agree?

Even though your intention may pure you deciding to join politics representing a particular party in the future, you cannot expect entire country on your side. because the game or the matches cricket is totally different to the game politics

The Pitch is not players friendly always. The Batting of other sides is unpredictable, like in cricket. Yes, including , you never know how the ball turns or go passing before your wickets, political.

I have no idea how the match referees, the public, react when they are in struggling to know whether the dash you played in politics is truly accurate or whether it is played according to the book of politics in its pure form.

i do not think that double nelsons are that much important or affect your game, politics.

In cricket, Sanga, the opposition side is either batting, or watching you batting sitting from the pavilions while you are fielding or balling. But what is the situation in the game, politics? Can you watch sitting while others are playing?. Can only concentrate on the job of 'wicket keeping' , only trying to find some loopholes, weak batting moments to hit the wicket behind, just looking at the wicket only,? is it known as a strategy of  'white politics'? 

who am i to tell you that when you hit or reach double centuries / triple centuries there is always a supportive player on the other side, with you? Very often the other players sacrifice their runs for the sake of the players who try to reach the centuries , for the name of the side / country they play. Do you believe that you can expect sacrifices in the game, politics?

can you name a single player who sacrificed their runs / votes for the sake of another player, in the game of power is vital nothing else?

other than in the games you play for pranthas / club etc can you change the membership in cricket, the way you want, like, forget IPL like games, that are different?

though in some of the matches you have gone for duck (? i cannot remember you returning the pavilion with a duck crying :-)) , the team didn't throw you out thinking of your previous matches, or recent matches but can you expect that in politics?   

Sanga, The International matches, political is totally different to the matches you play , home

Do you know that as well? Stadiums outside to this Island are full of record holders, for their various contributions

remember the match you played against (?) i cannot remember, that Murali was labeled as ' a player who doesn't ball accurately? Can you remember how they rated the Dushra he played? How many foreign tests he had to underwent to convince that the Dushra he played was up to the standard and was not illegal?

Hope, you have not forgotten that past

International cricket is totally different to international or continental, zonal politics dear cricketer of the country, world

Oh! before i forget , let me remind and ask you, can you remember the teams who refuse to come to this country when we were playing inland for the world cup (the world cup that we won, leaded by Arjuna Ranathunge) and who said we will come

you'll find such reactions when you deal with zonal or continental so called righteous politics organized in the form / face of , named, recognized as ' international organizations'

Ah! Sanga, The Media support you get internationally not just because you were a speaker before university sports gatherings also as famous accurate cricketer , don't always expect from channels like # 4, you should learn what politics, international they play for God sake

You know what match fixing is in cricket right? You know how signing a contract with the home departments is different to the agreements, contracts you sign with who ever needy parties / groups

And you guys often complain politics in cricket , it is not new in this country i do not know how old it is though

friendly matches always give you some experience as well as it allow you to earn friends as well, get a chance to identify the teams , other better, right?    

Sanga, Never ever forget that the results of the decision you take as a Captain or as a member / fielder, you get to know at the end of the day, after each match , maximum after five days if you are testing BUT the decisions you take as a politician sometimes won't show you or tell you INSTANT / QUICK RESULTS. Sometimes the results of any political decision you take, you will hear after decades , or the results may appear after many hundred years after taking the decision (Pls. refer History here and there of the world) 

So, please remember that every decision you take inevitably has a aftermath result, negative or positive


Knowing all those if you feel you should enter politics , i wish you luck and say ' it is not an easy journey , the surfaces are not rosy layered, the thorns are ahead your dream of throne so careful and take care!
