COLOMBO: Sri Lankan batting legend Kumar Sangakkara on Monday said he had no intention of making a foray into politics after local media reported he was eyeing next year’s presidential elections.
Sangakkara’s comments came amid a media frenzy comparing him to Imran Khan, the cricketing great who is set to be sworn in as Pakistan’s prime minister on Saturday.
“I would like to put to rest speculation and rumour once and for all, confirming that I do not harbour any ambitions for political office,” Sangakkara, 40, said in a statement.
“I never have, and, with enormous certainty, I can say I never will.”
