5206 and 4917 respectively (Source: AP) Related News AS Kumar Sangakkara disembarked from Angelo Mathews’ shoulders at the P’Sara Oval two weeks ago he had left his young cohort with a bigger burden-that of literally carrying Sri Lankan cricket single-handedly into the future A task that the 27-year-old skipper has dealt with manfully so far-a Test average of 6880 since taking over-despite his team’s dip in fortunes Like was the case against India where Mathews scored two memorable centuries with both ending in defeat BHARAT SUNDARESAN meets the unassuming Sri Lankan captain and tracks down his journey from being a Mama’s boy to his country’s cricketing talisman EXCERPTS: There’s a similarity between you and Curtly Ambrose in terms of how you started with cricket It was your mother who pushed you to start with My whole family is cricket-crazy Dad (Tyronne) played cricket and so did my brother When I was growing up my dad was abroad most of the time So my mother (Monica) who is probably the most passionate cricket fan of the lot pushed me She went to the extent of giving me throw-downs and hanging the ball in a sock off the tree and wanting me to hit that That’s one of the chief reasons I have always played with a straight bat which was crucial in my childhood (laughs) We used to play on a narrow street with houses on each side and you were deemed out if you hit it cross-batted and the ball went into a house The neighbours never complained though since their kids played with us too Mrs Ambrose is known to have been very critical of her son… She’s still critical Nothing has changed from that point of view Even now if I get out she will say that was a very poor shot to get out to Or she will say I could have bowled a lot better It happens day in day out There are days she will praise me But it’s never “Oh my God you were brilliant” It’s more “Yeah yeah well played” (laughs) At school St Joseph’s College your nicknames ranged from Jocka to Superman both apparently to do with underwear How did those come up Jocka actually got on well with my name Angelo They called me Angoka (An-jo-ka) That one wasn’t about underwear Superman was though I used to wear my underwear over my tight shorts That’s why the nickname I just got used to it from a young age and it just stuck Do you still go around being Superman in the Sri Lankan dressing-room There are days when it just happens No hard and fast rule Within the team I am Angie though my childhood friends still call me Jocka You used to be an athlete too at school I actually started off doing athletics for my college I took part at provincial and national level in hurdles and 100m when I was young The practices then started clashing cricket and athletics So I had to give up My family is crazy over cricket so I had to take up cricket I had no option I actually started believing that it was a good choice when I was selected for the U-15 national squad and I was made captain Even back then I never knew I would play for the country at the highest level I was a bowling all-rounder to start with then my coaches started encouraging me to bat higher up Cricket is all about perception Why do you think you have always been looked at as a leader Maybe they saw something in me which I actually didn’t know From U-15 onwards I got to captain at U-17 and U-19 level as well And it continued through to ‘A’ cricket and the senior team But the likes of Sanga and Mahela were promoting you as national captain even while you were very young Till I was made the vice-captain I never knew I could become captain one day Even if you are a captain you are still a player and you have to keep contributing with bat and ball So I kept concentrating on that and how to improve myself as a player The captaincy I was just put into that spot Handling media might come naturally but being Lanka captain is much more Like Mahela and Sanga have said many times it’s about dealing with politicians and all that It’s about not letting your team get affected by anything Our job is to concentrate on cricket and the administrators are there to negotiate and resolve issues Captaining a team is itself a tough ask It is a hot seat and you are accountable for all your decisions Decisions can go right or wrong and you learn from those mistakes In cricket you make mistakes every day and I’m not afraid of making a few But as long as you admit them you can be a better player and captain I consider going to a press-conference and addressing the media as a perk of captaincy That gives you a chance to stand tall and face the music You have always come across as a very studious guy I am not really a fan of reading a lot of books I just enjoy being with family and with my friends or going on holiday or watching movies I like fishing too Sleeping is another favourite pastime I am not a big fan of sight-seeing but I do love the beach You also have a reputation of being a dancer who could be at it all night No no I am not a good dancer But I did dance till 4 in the morning after we won the World T20 final against India Was that the most fun day you have had as a cricketer That was the first time I was part of a World Cup-winning squad It was an amazing feeling we had lots of fun Everyone thought India would win it because we had lost to them quite often Winning the Test series in England for the first time was historic too We had to face a lot of controversies there The Sachithra Senanayake incident (the off-spinner mankaded Jos Buttler) for starters Plus we were playing in the early summer where the pitches were in their favour The Indian dressing-room can be a complex place with people from different communities and with a lot of egos How different is the Lankan dressing-room We’ve done wonders despite our small population in international cricket starting from the 1996 World Cup Everyone’s humble about their achievement Fortunately for us we have had guys who are from different religions different races etc We have had Muslim guys Tamil guys Sinhalese but never a single clique There has always been a family feel Even during the off-season if one of us is throwing a party he will invite the whole team with their families And everyone will make sure he’s there Who’s the joker in the pack and who’s keeping the spirits alive We have a few guys who are very lively in the team Ajantha Mendis and Senanayake top the list It’s a chilled out dressing-room Sanga and Mahela and seniors before them too created a culture where all the guys can open up and where the younger guys are welcomed and made to feel at home Has the kind of music changed from the time you joined There’s a good mix of new and old Sinhala baila and English I like to listen to music before I go out to bat It calms me Sanga had lamented about how you never realized the kind of special player you were and always preferred to underplay it These words are coming from a great and easily the most consistent batsman I have ever seen It’s an honour to know that he said something like that I have always wanted to be a genuine all-rounder Humility is what I learnt from Sanga and Mahela They are humble even after scoring 10000 and 20000 runs They still have their feet on the ground I am very religious and go to church every Sunday I pray before each game too That helps too Are you someone who searched for videos of your innings on YouTube Sometimes I do to refresh and remind myself that I am capable of doing these things I go back to my knock in Australia in 2010 when I and Lasith finished that ODI off (they added 132 for the 9th wicket to chase down 240 at MCG) The SLPL final knock and the one and only ODI ton I got against India last year You’ve had to deal with a lot of on-field confrontation these days Never gotten into a fight or a quarrel Me Never No Because I was always scared of fights I was also very skinny in school (laughs) Was there any dark period in your cricketing career where you thought it wasn’t working out for you Straight after the U-19s I have had so many injuries So I had a couple of years where I was not even considered for first-class cricket because I was so injury-prone I couldn’t play three games on the trot It was only after I got into the developmental squad and entered the academy which was two years after U-19s that my career got going I just didn’t give up I kept going and I started getting to know my body better I understood what to do and what not to do Someone like Chandika Hathurasinghe (presently head coach with Bangladesh) has played a major part in my career Is that why you have always under-bowled yourself Because I am playing all three formats and we are playing a lot of cricket I need to manage my workload especially in Test matches So if it is seaming quite a lot then I bowl quite a lot Not a question of under-bowling I try to manage myself I definitely have bowled a lot in ODIs and T20s in the recent past Did you ever imagine yourself as a 50+ average Test batsman with such a good record overseas Not really I had a good couple of years and that has sort of surprised so many people There’s no point in getting a 100 and losing a game it’s better to score a 20 and make your team win I am not really into records but I know how many centuries I have since there are so few I always look for opportunities to score runs rather than just hanging in there If you are saving a game and I have to bat the whole day (like at Lord’s last year) then maybe I might change How did you handle the sudden influx of big money into your life I come from a middle-class background where we have a very low-profile and we have been taught good principles I have seen my parents work really hard and sweating it out to bring us up Me my brother and sister They made loads of sacrifices to give us the good life Money will be with you today and not there tomorrow Good qualities remain forever I bought my first car only when I started playing for the A team when I was around 20 I own two cars now but I’ve never been one to splurge money or go to a casino Your dad was a chef but now runs a cricket academy He worked at some big hotels in Dubai for a long time He’s in Sri Lanka now and is running the Mathews Cricket Academy along with my brother So how good are you in the kitchen I tried to cook once but failed miserably My mom’s probably the best in terms of Sinhalese food But dad beats her when it comes to western dishes and cakes Your wedding in 2013 was a high-profile affair that was attended by everyone including the then President Mahinda Rajapaksa (Smiles) Heshani’s a double accountant She used to work but not anymore My father-in-law Prasanna Silva is an architect and he’s the one who designed our house in Wattala-the town which is 30-40 km from Colombo and where I grew up in and still belong to I met Heshani when I was 18 and doing advanced levels in school and we dated for eight years before getting married Do you get captaincy advice too from your parents Not really They follow my performance very closely They don’t get involved in it or ask me about the team They are generally busier

dispensaries for immediate medical help One of the final initiatives of former Mumbai police commissioner Satyapal Singh’s was to encourage personnel to report their health problems by writing them on chits and putting them in the suggestion boxes But even after five months the boxes remain unused as not a single sugeestion has been placed so far “We open the boxes every two days hoping to find something but nothing has come so far” said Dr S M Patil police surgeon to the Maharashtra government The large wooden boxes were made by the motor transport department of the Mumbai police and placed in early February at the entrance of outpatient department of each medical facility Dr Patil said that a circular was soon issued to all 94 police stations explaining the purpose of the boxes The circular states that individuals requiring help had to only write down their personal details and medical care would immediately be made available to them According to Dr Patil exhausting election duty in the past few months is the reason behind such a dull response to the initiative “The police have been preparing for the elections since march A lot of them were sent to different parts of the state So they did not have any time to care about their health In April all leaves were canceled and in May many of them went on long leaves with their families They have been so busy that it did not occur to them that this medium of redressal exists The instructions we got from Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria was not to give anyone sick leave He told us to admit some very ill individuals if we had to do patch them and make them work-ready” he said Dr Patil is confident that in the coming months the boxes would be put to use “Now that things have calmed down and the force is not under much
