Sri Lankan cricketer Kumar Sangakkara stated he was in no way concerned in stepping into politics now or in the future as described in the social media.
The following is his full comment:
Hi – Thanks all for your messages of support after the last game. It was a good victory for us. Thiri played an outstanding knock. I have been told by friends that once again rumours are circulating about me entering politics. These stories are completely baseless and are just irresponsible rumours. As I have stated in the past, I have absolutely no interest in entering politics now or in the future. Please just ignore these stories. Looking forward to the big clash on Sunday and thank you for your continued support. Cheers, Sanga, he commented in his Facebook page.
