CRICKET: The greatest ODI opener of all time "Sanath Jayasuriya"

"As Jayasuriya walks to write his swan song, millions of cricket fans across the world, would hope that the maestro composes a symphony that deserves its prelude. History might have to wait for eternity, before a player could ‘scythe’ fast bowlers over point or lift them over midwicket on one leg, with smithy like arms. The man, who was the ODI batting equivalent of Joel Garner with the ball, deserves to walk away with his head held high, to the standing applause of an audience that would witness ‘greatness’ fade away into the distant horizon."
