Sports Mahela to end short stint with SL team

Mahela Jayawardene will end his short stint as a consultant to the Sri Lanka team following their final outing in the first round stage of the T-20 World Cup against the Netherlands  in Sharjah later today (22).

However, he says he will continue to assist the team via technology.

Jayawardene has been credited for a resurgent team that has already qualified for the Super Stage by having won both their previous games.

Speaking to the media, Jayawardena said he will fly home to be with his daughter.

“I just counted that I have been away for 135 days in quarantine and bubbles since June and I'm on my last leg. But I totally understand and I told them I will be with the group with the technology. I hope anyone can understand that, being a father, I haven’t seen my daughter for that many days. I think definitely need to get back home,” he added.
