Namal asks Bhanuka to reconsider retirement
Sports Minister Namal Rajapaksa has asked Bhanuka Rajapaksa to reconsider his retirement from cricket.
Noting that he was still a young player having time left to play for the country, the minister asked the power hitter to face challenges and move forward rather than making hasty decisions.
Bhanuka retired from the game last week, citing family obligations.
In a statement, minister Rajapaksa said that if there is a problem with the administration or if an injustice has been done leading to such a decision, there is an opportunity to intervene.
“However, it is not possible to change the entire structure or the entire legal system based on just one or few players,” he said.
