Legendary Sri Lankan cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya, the man behind Sri Lanka winning 1996 World Cup is currently suffering from a knee problem.
Jayasuriya has been facing the problem for quite some time now and the situation has come down to something very serious. He is unable to walk without crutches. It is learned that Jayasuriya will travel to Melbourne very soon to undergo a surgery, as well as expected to travel to Australia in the first week of January and the procedure will take almost a month to get fully fit again.
Jayasuriya, who made his international debut in 1989, has served the Sri Lanka Cricket board twice as the Selection Committee Chairman since his retirement from the game in 2011. In August 2017, Sanath stepped down from the post after national side’s some disastrous performances.
It is known Jayasuriya’s cricketing career was splendid, but his career as a selection committee member and his off-field life has been quite controversial.
In his memorable career, Jayasuriya has scored 6973 runs and taken 98 wickets in Test cricket, while has taken 323 wickets and scored 13,430 runs in One Day cricket. He has also scored 629 runs and 19 wickets to his name in the T20 cricket.
